  1. https://blog.playstation.com/2021/11/18/radiohead-explain-the-story-behind-the-creation-of-its-kid-a-mnesia-exhibition-out-today-on-ps5/
  2. I mean if you have something that can run it, I downloaded it on PS5 with no issues but I know not everyone here will have something that can play games
  3. So the virtual exhibition rules, I'd definitely check it out if you have the means
  4. I don't think they're shit. Worrywort and Fog are amongst my favourite Radiohead songs and there aren't any I wouldn't happily listen to. There was definitely a distinctive vibe to the Amnesiac/HTTT bsides that didn't match the albums but did match each other. I think in some ways it's hard for me to separate the intense nostalgia they give me in general
  5. FTR I'm fine with them releasing the songs, it's just strange in the sense that it feels like a concerted effort has been made to make Kid Amnesiae flow like a proper album, but those two songs break that flow quite dramatically. I guess I'd rather they'd just been singles or something
  6. It's honestly pretty wild. For what was considered such a difficult time they sure were prolific. This'll always be my favourite era of the band as it's the one tbat cemented who the band actually were in my mind. From this point on it felt like the band could do anything and that's what made every album release so exciting
  7. This plays almost like a remix album, it's great. Pretty amazing that the live version of Like Spinning Plates came about in the studio and not after the fact, and I love the version of TLW. My guess is that thematically it didn't fit and so wasn't included, but still. The two "new" songs are easily the lowest point for me here and I almost wish they hadn't been included as the rest of it flows brilliantly
  8. Weirdly I haven't been clamouring for new Radiohead since AMSP. It could be that this forum was a big part of what made me so hyped for new material, but like Penny said, AMSP just feels like a last album too. That said, it almost feels weird how hard they're pushing these reissues, treating them like as big a deal as new albums. It almost has the energy of an old band who got back together but never released new music
  9. Yeah I'm inclined to agree with all of this. I didn't actually notice the vocoder the first time and now listening to it it sounds really silly! I think it's totally fine and good for Radiohead to release these songs even if they are a little weak, and it doesn't bother me that they're making videos for them either. Still, going the archives and releasing everything still feels like the actions if a band that has no intention of releasing actually new material any time soon
  10. So they released Follow Me Around! Pretty surreal to finally hear an official release and it just sounds like Follow Me Around
  11. Cut a Hole and I Froze Up are big ones for me. I always thought Open The Floodgates was pretty weak, lyrically at least
  12. Isn't it a straight rip from the Twitter announcement for Kid A Mnesia?
  13. Not really any more than usual. The big exception is True Love Waits already having an official release, but even then Kid A and Amnesiac both had Morning Bell. Songs like Nude and The National Anthem were written way before they found their place on albums
  14. I really like the song, I haven't really thought too much about when all the parts came from. It sounds to me like it perhaps came from before they settled on a direction, like maybe the kind of thing people would have expected to follow up OK Computer. I do think it has a kind of degraded/demo sound to it although it's hard to tell if it's a stylistic choice or simply because it *is* a demo
  15. Roooooose! I actually didn't realise how many of these were alternative versions rather than just unreleased songs. I think I saw Follow Me Around and got too excited to read the rest
  16. It would have added a forth disc which would drive up the price of the package and make it less accessible. It woulda been nice if they had been there, I agree, but the new stuff is the shit I really care about
  17. In answer to Skuj's question, I'm not pissed off about the lack of b-sides because they're available elsewhere and I'm happy for the effort to be spent on unreleased stuff
  18. Oh also they just announced a virtual exhibition for the PlayStation 5
  19. Obviously this place is largely dead now anyway but man I'm glad that guy is banned. The idea of coming in here to say 'This reissue looks cool' only to be met with paragraphs and paragraphs of pointless negativity was kind of a drag. Anyway The reissue looks cool!!
  20. The sessions I've always wanted to hear are the Spike Stent sessions. I'd love to hear what they were initially going for with In Rainbows coz the live shows felt like they were going for something way less delicate than what we ended up with
  21. Where the hell are you guys listening to The Smile?
  22. I haven't listened to it because I was doing something when I found out about it and forgot until now. They are being notably quiet on Palestine which is disappointing but not surprising. Generally I can't be bothered to read 10 paragraph posts of any type but especially not really ones that are like "the band that we are all here because we like are actually bad just like everything else in the world"
  23. Yeah, Amnesiac flows well as an album but I find it quite sonically varied which isn't a bad thing but it does lose its sense of place, to me.
  24. Alla those posts are way too long for me to read the whole thing but Kid A still fuckin' owns. Radiohead totally could top it, they came close with In Rainbows, but I still like Kid A the most. It's the only one of their albums that takes me to a place that feels real. Listening to that album feels like you're in the environment you see on the box art, where every other Radiohead album feels like they're just cohesive collections of songs without the sense of place, to me
