  1. Last week
  2. No they pulled the songs from iTunes years ago, around 2015-6 when the back catalog was purchased by XL from EMI’s successor company. These tracks were removed because they were part of the 2009-10 reissue series that was not approved by Radiohead, but like the 2008 greatest hits, was released by EMI after they left the label in 2007. Most of the songs on the 2009 Amnesiac reissue are simply the b-sides of Amnesiac, which continued to be available. But the Canal Plus live tracks were only ever officially released as part of that EMI reissue the band didn’t approve—so those particular tracks di
  3. What would be the reasoning behind RH pulling out the Amnesiac tracks from iTunes before a reissue?
  4. Earlier
  5. Amnesiac is definitely getting a reissue soon. I got the deluxe version on iTunes and then after they left EMI for years many of the bonus tracks like the live Canal Plus versions disappeared from my library. (The actual album and the b-sides did not, because the band kept those available via singles/EPs.) In recent months these live tracks reappeared randomly in my library. They’re unplayable like any upcoming release, but it shows Radiohead have submitted some new version of Amnesiac where these versions are going to be included in iTunes again. I think it’s rare to see tracks disa
  6. Amnesiac was my favorite album for a long time, I don't know what it would be now though.
  7. i miss the times when this message board was the only social media i had

  8. And me the weirdo who had always thought amnesiac was greater than the sum of its parts and yet also has the best songs of the 2 albums
  9. Me, who only has like five songs from Kid A on my phone:
  10. Ok so Dawn Chorus, the other was Impossible Knots. So many Animas exist besides Thom’s, Francesca Belmonte made one, Sufjan’s Ascension reminded me of the feel of Anima when I re listened recently. I don’t love that album but it has raw and devastating lyrics to complement the meandering beats, I was moved by it, whereas most of Thom’s solo work lately hasn’t hit me that way, feels more like “I am now being dystopian, can I get my BNM again” rather than “I had to say this shit, I don’t care if the sound is a little underdeveloped and corny.” Thom’s Anima rarely felt like it had any strong impu
  11. TKOL is I guess kind of new age, also their ‘90s albums are adjacent to metal and In Rainbows (and Separator and Present Tense) have a sophistipop feel at times and there’s rap style vocals in Amnesiac and HTTT and hip hop production influences in all of their albums since OKC and country in Fake Plastic Trees, High and Dry and all their more recent Neil Young influenced songs like Desert Island Disk, Codex and Give Up the Ghost... so it’s just that they haven’t fully committed to exploring these genres but (with the exception of rap and country where they’d be viewed as inauthentic due to the
  12. It’s strange how many wildly different environments we can associate Amnesiac with, and I think when it feels natural to listen to something in any setting or weather (something I definitely don’t feel with Kid A or OK Computer) it’s a sign of a really good album. On another forum in the 2000s for whatever reason there were a bunch of people obsessed with going for autumn walks in the woods while listening to Amnesiac. For me, it’s much more associated with bright, almost nauseous midafternoon summer or tropical sunlight and hard, artificial, urban or fairly dense suburban, perhaps wet surface
  13. i like to play amnesiac when i'm driving. especially at night. just is really really good then.
  14. Kid A is a way more cohesive album, everything flows perfectly. Amnesiac has some beautiful songs and Pyramid Song is possibly the best stand alone track on either album, but as an album it can sound a bit cobbled together. I think it’s really difficult to put on Kid A and not want to listen to the entire thing, there’s some gestalt psychology going on where I feel wrong if I don’t.
  15. Kid a has kid a. It wouldn't be kid a otherwise. It makes it my fave out of the two.
  16. yeah amnesiac has still always been my favorite and the one i reach for in that mood but kid a is a close second
  17. still love amnesiac, and kid a. they flip flop regularly about which i prefer. haven't listened to either in awhile, but when i think "do i feel like listening to rh right now?" those 2 are the ones i want to hear the most.
  18. 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.
  19. 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
  20. Yeah, I'd listen to HTTT part 2. But New Age. Thom isn't allowed to sing, no staccato notes, all environmental/atmospheric, and they probably won't be allowed to play in B minor.
  21. At this point I just want a change from their last few albums sound and have something different. I'd even be okay for a return to The Bends/OK Computer more rock focused sound at this point.
  22. Metal, even though it wouldn't be as good as Broken by NIN
