Happy 10th Birthday, In Rainbows!

Recommended Posts

The Bush administration didn't become nefarious and scary until after 9/11.

Before 9/11 he was just a dumbshit over-privileged cowboy who stole the election.

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.

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.

oops did we leave HOC off the list?

House of Cards= ok song. doesn't really make the album any better of worse. just another melancholy song with a dull edge. file under boring radiohead songs on an overall boring album.

 

file under things i would never say to their faces.

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.

ppl who think otherwise are out of touch with reality tbh now that the reckoner trolling has been exposed

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

Glass Eyes is better

one of my all time least favorite insipid filler tracks.

dull as dishwater. i skip it every time. the band that recorded idioteque should be ashamed of themselves for putting such drivel on an album.
