i got Hail to the Thief first, and wasn't really into it (being a complete and utter [insert four-letter-word of choice] in those days. later i heard a live performance of Karma Police. i bought evry other Radiohead album in existence within the next year. i love them.
i think people who slate music as "depressing" need to get out more. there's nothing wrong with a bit of melancholy, and it's infinitely preferable to some sort of mega-cheez dance-hit-of-the-year.
Kid A's my favourite really. skronky.

One of my favorite albums.

Airbag, Paranoid Android, Climbing Up The Walls, Exit Music, Karma Police, and Subterranean Homesick Alien all have potential of being my favorite songs AND THEY'RE ON THE SAME ALBUM.

Rating: 5/5
Even better than Kid A.

I'm not sure if it's better than kid A. I can never decide.

One of the best albums of all time in my opinion. And while we are on the topic "Climbing Up the Walls" is probably the first song that scared me enough to keep on the lights for awhile. It does have a good story behind it.

Story? Could you explain for the Radiohead-fans-lite?

Yeah, Climbing Up The Walls is just haunting period. Haunting noises, haunting percussion, and haunting lyrics.

Favorite Radiohead song - other favorites are Nat'l Anthem, Exit Music, Street Spirit, and How To...

And Med: I agree completely with your thoughts on Let Down. I think it's definitely one of the weaker tracks of the album. This Message Edited On 09.28.05

"This is about the unspeakable. Literally skull-crushing. I used to work in a mental hospital around the time that Care in the Community started, and we all just knew what was going to happen. And it's one of the scariest things to happen in this country, because a lot of them weren't just harmless... It was hailing violently when we recorded this. It seemed to add to the mood. Some people can't sleep with the curtains open in case they see the eyes they imagine in their heads every night burning through the glass. Lots of people have panic buttons fitted in their bedrooms so they can reach over and set the alarm off without disturbing the intruder. This song is about the cupboard monster."

That quote by Thom Yorke, talking about Climbing Up The Walls. He's also mentioned the song relating to the increase in serial killers over the last few decades in the past. So yeah, nasty stuff.

Definately...I'm on the side that Let Down is a great song, and one of my favorites from this album.

I really wish you people wouldn't lie about things. It's not nice. Plus you're a bad liar.

I read that Climbing Up The Walls was about Thom's objection to the " Care In The Community" scheme, it was intended to let mentally ill people out to live in towns and have a normal life. I also heard that Thom had worked in said mental home and found the experience very traumatising, and that releasing these people would be a very bad idea, as some of them were psychotic to the extent of being a danger to everyone around them.

Radiohead arent Psychedelic

One of the most influential albums of my life. If any album deserves classic its this.
