no. wrong. very wrong. you couldn't be more wronger.

 

 

how so?

 

yes, he stole the election.

also- Enron was bad.

oh, and Enron's connection to the California blackouts back then too.

 

Yes they were bad news then...........but it wasn't until after 9/11 that they became very sinister and demagogic and scary.

15 Step = average

bodysnatchers = good

nude = boring

weird fishes = bad

all i need = boring

faust arp = great

reckoner = 10/10

jigsaw = real bad

videotape = p.good

 

i agree that the album is not my cup of tea.

 

15 Step = average  not bad

bodysnatchers = good -- yep

nude = boring -- yep -- ruined it. it's not so bad this way. but it was better the old way before it took a handful of valium.

weird fishes = bad  best on the album

all i need = boring -- yep

faust arp = great  boring af

reckoner = 10/10  not terrible but not great either. has the dancing for your pleasure line which supports the Steppenwolf theory.

jigsaw = real bad  i kinda like it because it fits so well with my Steppenwolf theory of in rainbows  as does nude (you paint yourself white)

videotape = p.good  well all the songs fit my Steppenwolf theory (which starts where they ended with a wolf at the door) but as songs go this does not give me a boner and it makes me sad that you can't really fuck to it.

In Rainbows is one of those albums I need to be in the mood for. I do really love it, tho. But every so often I find myself a little bored with the album. You really can't argue with its beauty, however.

 

15--great

body--good

nude--great

WF--good

AIN--boring

FA--unnecessary, boring

Reckoner--great

Jigsaw--ok

Videotape--great

 

In comparison to other RH albums, IR is a very solid effort, probably in their top 4 for me. In comparison to other bands, it's a god damn masterpiece.

I'll play, too...

 

15 Step = good

Bodysnatchers = great

Nude = good

Weird Fishes/Arpeggi = best song on the album and in Radiohead's repertoire

All I Need = average

Faust Arp= okay

Reckoner= great

House of Cards= good

Jigsaw Falling Into Place= great

Videotape= okay

 

For me IR is the second best Radiohead album after Kid A...

 

I love it.

Ooops. I was copying your list.

 

HOC--Great. I actually think this is a super underrated song. The subtleties are really impressive and Thom's voice is so perfect. I really fell in love with it after watching FTB. Watching Jonny in that video is amazing.

15 Step - Dope but the drum sound at the start lets it down a little

Bodysnatchers - The novelty of a noisy song did wear off eventually but I still dig it

Nude - 10/10, just super wonderful

Weird Fishes/Arpeggi - Yeah it's great, really holds up, I like the drums and the bassline and the general production a loooootttttt

All I Need - Underrated, I adore it

Faust ARP - Pretty, and I love the strings. I'd be lying if I didn't forget it exists though. Glass Eyes is better

Reckoner - 10/10 perfect

House of Cards - I like it a lot but I always forget it exists

Jigsaw Falling Into Place - Has grown on me a lot over the years. Bad lyrics really but I dig it

Videotape - 10/10, and anyone who prefers the rocky Coldplay live version is a fucking nerd
