I bought a physical copy of Travis Scot’s “Astroworld” because it grew on me. Arrived yesterday. Good album.

I buy one album a year at the current rate. Last year was Pornography. This year..

 


Remastered, but still the nice soothing sound of suicide note in audio.

Those I Might Be Wrong live recordings are great.

Radiohead could be 20x the band they are if they recorded their albums in a similar fashion to their live sessions and live albums IMO

It's funny, in studio they sound very aloof and calculated, but live they sound different, closer to the reality that they're still just mates from school making a noise together.

Also, the rearrangement of Like Spinning Plates is incredible.

I agree in some ways and disagree in others.

They certainly are a hell of a live band, and the From the Basement version of “The King of Limbs” made me actually like that album, whereas before the release of the live alb/film, I thought it was crap...

But...

Studio precision can be awesome. I don’t know that I can imagine “Kid A” sounding any better if recorded live in studio throughout. And “OK Computer” seems to really kind of rely on the controlled environment.

But yeah, for, like, “A Moon Shaped Pool,” I think that one would have been far more interesting if recorded live.

And the IMBW: Life Recordings version of “True Love Waits” still kicks the unholy shit out of that ambient piano fuckery the band pulled for the “studio version” fucking 18 years later. Fuck that. That’s not “True Love Waits.”

I have never seen Radiohead (or anyone) live, but from the bootlegs I've heard they kick arse.

That said, I'm not that fond of A Moon Shaped Pool. Except for a few songs, it's mostly just fine and background.

And on 'True Love Waits' - I read an article where someone (who admittedly had too much time on their hands) was arguing that AMSP was going to be Radiohead's last album. They did make some interesting points (they now have exactly 100 songs on studio albums, the deluxe edition of AMSP included bits of master tape for previous albums, their most famous unreleased song has finally been released).
Of course, it could just be the conspiracy theory of an über-obsessive with too much time on their hands. (Which describes all Radiohead fans, come to think of it.)

I’m a non-obsessive Radiohead fan.
I could honestly take or leave a bunch of stuff from Amnesiac, In Rainbows and AMSP. I’ve been listening to them side 1995, and back then, sure, I was pretty fucking down. But I didn’t spent hours on the internet examining OKC lyrics on GreenPlasticRadiohead or AtEasewebnor anything after that album came out and brought the foaming superfans.

If AMSP is their last album, so be it. I’m ok with that. Best song was “Burn the Witch,” and the rest was pretty unremarkable after the initial “OMG NEW RADIOHEAD” passed.

Ha! I just wanted to write the exact same thing except less accurately worded than yours. Is that even proper grammar? I own that album too and always loved “True Love Waits”, but that other version is truly horrible. If that had been the original version I wouldn't have ever liked it.



You made me wanting to listen to Kid A again right now. Back in 2000 I was working as a software tester for Philips and we made those audio CD recordable players. My first proper job. At one point we went to buy a couple of CDs for testing purposes. I chose Kid A and one of the American Recording albums of Johnny Cash (probably III because it was released around the same time). No one of my colleagues (a group of 20 max) liked Kid A. And I totally bought it out of curiosity and at first preferred their previous ones. But after repeated listening I got into it. Then I thought it was quite extreme with the distorted effects, now not so much anymore, especially not compared to Double Negative. Kid A the song I still skipped though.

Low is on it too. And that's the exact reason why I started taping myself, because I loved listening to those live sets. And it's great to revisit my own efforts once in a while. Some people take pictures during concerts. I never understand.

I have an irrational love of Amnesiac, even despite the knowledge that a good third of it is crap. In Rainbows just seems kinda plain to me.

I have spent embarrassing amounts of time on citizeninsane.eu, but that's just my autistic thirst for pointless information - I'm not going and microanalysing it.

I'm probably missing out on this due to my age - I don't know a time when the IMBW version was the only one.

It is a bootleg, but I bought it secondhand. I have no idea where the money's going.
(And although this might be a bit dickish, I doubt R.E.M. need any more money.)

I've been thinking about Dimeadozen lately actually, I might need to give you a buzz to help me set shit up.
archive.org is so great, I have an account there too (most of my uploads are stuff that I couldn't find on there anyway, I'm trying to be better at crediting sources).

Hah. Yep. Critics praised the “studio” “True Love Waits” but fuck them, they are stupid for doing that.
The AMSP version is what it would sound like if you slowly tortured the IMBW version to death by feeding it increasingly harsh doses of hardcore laxatives until everything but the song’s BONES came flooding out of its asshole.

I was super into Radiohead when Kid A dropped. I picked it up right after school (I think I was a junior in high school at the time?) and sat and listened to it on headphones and chatted on AIM with my friends who were doing the same thing.

I remember typing out, “Yesterday I woke up sucking a lemon!!!” and sending it to my friend who hadn’t heard it yet.

“Idioteque” was the one that blew my mind most. That track was so far ahead of its time. And I dug the album, but I did miss the rockier elements a bit. I continued to kiss them until Hail to the Thief, which is my favorite Radiohead album.

Found this interesting, intimate r.e.m. show on archive.

https://archive.org/details/1987.05....pSantaMonicaCA

This is a pretty famous show. Govorner of West Virginia declares Rem day.

https://archive.org/details/1991.04....wan+Swan+H.mp3

Then ran into a few crappy sounding audience boots and left.

Lemme know if anyone comes across some gold.

I think it's my second-favourite track on that album ('How to Disappear Completely' or fuck off). It goes right to the edge, unlike the title track and 'Treefingers', which went past it.

It makes me sad that we'll never hear 'Electioneering' again, that one's awesome. It means that now we take notice whenever we get anything that's got bite to it (god bless 'I Might Be Wrong').

I say I love HTTT, but that's just skewed by how awesome 'Myxomatosis' is.
