I've come around on TKOL a little since it first came out and I hated it. Now I think it's their weakest album even behind Pablo Honey but still has some enjoyable tracks.

I'd still prefer to listen to the Atoms For Peace album over TKOL any day of the week.

Do you like it over Tomorrow's Modern Boxes?
Hahaha, to be honest, I forgot about that album almost immediately after it came out. I was so excited that it came out. I made a thread for it here and everything. But then it seemed like no one really cared about it too much. I don't think I've even listened to the whole thing since soon after its release.

But IIRC, the memorable songs on TKOL had more staying power than Tomorrow's Modern Boxes did.

Yeah, The Eraser is a Thom Yorke solo thing done right. That's an album I still listen to all the way through semi-regularly a decade after it came out. There's not a single track on that album that I dislike/that isn't a total earworm.

Began digging into Radiohead again and it just feels so GOOD. Brings me back.

Is Hail to the Thief considered to be underrated? Personally, at the time, I didn't like it but after the years ive learned to love it. Especially the one two punch of Scatterbrain and then A Wolf at the Door - which is probably in some weird list near the top of my most favorite Radiohead song ever.

It was the first Radiohead album I ever heard (because I got into them right after it came out), so it's got a special place in my heart and I love it a whole lot even if I don't think it's necessarily their best album.

I think the one two punch of 2+2=5 and Sit Down Stand Up is one of my favorite things Radiohead's done. It never fails to give me chills every time I listen to that album.

Yeah, the little red book that came with Amnesiac was one of my favorite physical releases back in the day.

Seems pretty rare for artists to put any kind of effort into that sort of thing these days, outside of expensive collectors edition stuff. Its understandable but kind of sad.
The In Rainbows make-your-own-case packaging was pretty awesome. I think that was the last time they put out an album with neat packaging like that. Although I don't know if they did something like that for TKOL or not because TKOL was the only Radiohead album I didn't buy on CD.

they also updated their facebook image stuff - the art for the new album will probably mirror this:



it's very interesting!! From a pure design perspective, it's much, much better than King of Limbs. But it's very hard to read to mood / tone of this. Feels lighter and higher energy than anything since OK Computer. The typeface and color are very poppy. Who knows!!
Love the artwork. I thought the best thing about The King Of Limbs was its artwork, but this is real cool too.

After my first listen, I'm not really feeling this one too much I loving love Ful Stop, Identikit, The Numbers and True Love Waits, but I feel like I could never listen to the rest of the tracks for the rest of my life and be totally fine with that.

I'm bummed that this is the 2nd Radiohead album in a row that I haven't enjoyed much after being a fan of well over a decade, but yeah, here we are. I hope they start making interesting music again one of these days. Most of these tracks don't feel like they gave me any compelling reason to revisit them, which is not something I ever thought I'd say about a Radiohead album before like 5 and a half years ago.

Earlier it occurred to me how loving dope Up on the Ladder would work if sampled for a hip-hop song. There should be more Radiohead hip-hop mashups. Lots of pure loving gold to be mined that surprisingly hasn't been as much as it seems like it should've been by now.

I had heard them on the radio but didnít really pay them much attention (I was 15 at the time), grabbed HTTT at my local library on a whim and spun the poo poo out of it. Next time my family went to the library I grabbed the other Radiohead album they had availableóKid Aóand demanded that we listen to it on the car ride back. As the title track was ending, my dad (who had been turning up the CD louder and louder as it played, confused at what he was listening to) asked ďuh, when does the music start?Ē.

And then National Anthem kicked in and nearly blew the speakers.

I think I have more of a soft spot for HTTT than other Radiohead fans because it was my first longform exposure to them, but even I can admit itís one of their lesser efforts. Itís too much of its time, and has a lot of derision and spite. Which, again, makes sense given the era when it was written and recorded, but Thom is usually above writing a song complaining about a reviewer that didnít like the show he attended.

Thom put up a 10-track HTTT playlist a few years back that might be worth listening to if you havenít already:

1. There There
2. The Gloaming
3. Sail To The Moon
4. Sit Down. Stand Up
5. Go To Sleep
6. Where I End And You Begin
7. Scatterbrain
8. 2+2=5
9. Myxomatosis
10. A Wolf At The Door

Iím not a huge fan of this ďalternateĒ version (itís not very dynamic, sticking 2+2=5 towards the end makes no goddamn sense, and I like Backdrifts too much to leave it off the disc) but itís a neat way to revisit the album.
My brother had been a fan of theirs for years by the time HTTT came out, but it was my first longform exposure to them as well at age 13. I listened to it over and over again that summer that it came out, then dove backwards through their discography. I think I actually managed to avoid hearing Creep until months after getting into Radiohead. I'd never heard it on the radio growing up or anything.

But yeah, finding Kid A was like a religious experience for me. Listening to it still is.

Even still, HTTT is a top 5 Radiohead album for me. I'd probably say my top 5 are OK Computer, Kid A, Amnesiac, HTTT and In Rainbows (in chronological order).
