Yeah, TKOL came with a sheet of acid blotter paper and a newspaper.

The original Kid A non-limited edition had great packaging with the hidden booklet under the tray.

Well we don't have it both ways;
1) Videotape appears on In Rainbows, this is an album.
2) Say you buy In Rainbows. The other version isn't there.
3) So you have to find the other version and like, compile it yourself.

I get what you're saying but you seem to be pretending the buffed up rework undoes the album Videotape (which I don't even mind!)

You would only be right if you could get In Rainbows in both flavours.

Plus there is something to the idea of the "released studio version" being definitive. Even if many bands, and definitely Radiohead, frequently have better live / radio / basement takes than what's on their albums.

Boo hoo.

Yeah, but in a band that's been going since 92 or something, with such a breadth of work, with festival dates being announced, set lists to speculate over, great resources that capture the genesis of the songs, and a new album coming, not to mention tons of side projects, it shouldn't be too hard to keep the 'you guys are all wrong!' posts til the pages are in double figures at least.

Just my two cents. There is a middle ground between ranking and stats

I would kindly ask you to go back and read your posts in this thread.

I stand corrected - but it's still a little like the 2006 tour where they used some smaller venues. The Roundhouse in London is a surprise considering on their last tour they sold out the O2 stadium. Twice.

I think it's more likely than not that they'll announce the album before the tour starts, but doing it this way round is pretty strange.

They might be filming at the roundhouse or something. Isn't there a BBC show that tapes there?

The big problem to me is that it's mixed like a rock album compared to Amnesiac which is super lush and dreamy. Throw in some dull tracks and it's not my fave. But There There is one of my favorite Radiohead songs, so that's something I guess.

If only they'd actually put their policy where their hearts are. Make things open audio/video taping (with certain etiquette rules). Then we wouldn't have to deal with hassle of security, and quality would improve even more.

It's not like there aren't a billion other bands who figured out how to do that.

Radiohead has been my favorite band since The Bends came out when I was like 11. So, two days ago when they deleted everything, I deleted every image and every post I've ever done on facebook and changed my profile pic to just a white square.

Not a single one of my facebook friends noticed.

gently caress it, LP9 is coming, I don't need friends.

Speaking of which, considering both The King of Limbs and In Rainbows had some really nice deluxe editions, I think it's a safe assumption that the new album will have something along those lines as well. It will be interesting to see what they do since they're one of very few bands that care enough to put a lot of effort into something like that.

Amnesiac still has the best special edition, and Kid A the worst.

I'm just really hoping that what we do get is more substantial than TKOL, at least. They've played so many great new songs live since that album released that it would be a shame to see those tracks left off the new album. I'm hoping that if they insist on keeping things tight that they do what they did with In Rainbows and have a deluxe edition of some kind with extra material.

If nothing else, this is the best production job Godrich has ever done. It sounds otherworldy and surreal, but unlike Kid A, it actually sounds like humans are playing the instruments. Get some audiophile quality headphones with a good soundstage, and immerse yourself. It's unbelievable. Tiny details like how Thom's voice creaks on True Love Waits sounds so raw and real.

What's your headphone recommendation?

Ok, so after listen #2, I defiantly still like it and think it's a good album, but I wish there was just one awesome summer jam on it. I really don't see this one getting much play at the beach or in the gym. Not even sure if I'm going to buy it on cd in June, cause I listen to CDs in the car usually and this is not the kind of album I think I'm going to listen to while I cruise around with the top down.

I think you'd bum people out, honestly. I like to keep things lighter when you have a group of folks at the shore I guess. A good summer album needs at least a couple songs everyone can sing along to and I can't make out most of the words on this. Think it would be a tough sell.

You think Radiohead are aspiring to be Smash Mouth or something?

Sorry that Radiohead, ONCE AGAIN (they're fuckin dicks I know), didn't provide you the summer anthem you've always wanted.

jfc I'm not asking for them to be smash mouth, but they could take a few cues from Coldplay or Justin Bieber and write a couple songs that are smart and sexy with great production but also have some pop sensibilities. Not too much to ask.
