I'm very glad you guys are enjoying this! We have released other Radiohead titles in the past that were largely ignored so I wasn't totally sure if this would be a hit.

Reading back over the thread, I forgot to respond to the tree...

Exactly. All of this stuff was already mastered, and quite a bit, for mass consumption.

More than half of the stuff here was released across various DVD's and the broadcast-sourced stuff is nearly identical in terms of the audio mastering. You can't really hear much of a difference. And since the audio mix is so pristine, it is reasonable to assume that the material was multi-tracked and then remixed and mastered later. A very controlled situation.

All that was needed to compile this set was to make all songs the same level, because the general levels were low and all over the place from song to song.

So any potential complaints about the sound quality should be directed towards Radiohead's audio team. Not my fault! However, if there are better sources for any of these tracks, I would like to know about it.

Wrapping my third straight listen. I get such a woody from that run of Bloom > Daily Mail > Feral.

I think the only song in the whole set that feels a little flat is optimistic. Energy feels a little low, or maybe it’s the lack of atmospherics found on the album.

Would ya'll bitchez be interested in a "Kid Amnesiac Live" release to supplement the new deluxe set?

I am thinking just the Kid A/Amneisiac songs played in 2000-2001 plus maybe a cover song at the end.

Wanna argue about which versions to use?

this recording is haunted. i'm not kidding.

three times now I paused it in the middle of a song, only to have it start playing by itself hours later from a random spot in a song (when no one was even close to my computer). it happened early this morning at about 2 in the morning at the beginning of give up the ghost. i was waiting for my phone to ring.

I've gotten through both The Bends and OK Computer a couple times. I'm afraid wherever I go next that I'm going to be disappointed in the lack of :bammer:.

They definitely dial it back, but it's still to be found on most albums (not really Amnesiac or King of Limbs).

See:

Optimistic
2+2=5
There There
Jigsaw Falling Into Place ( :heartbeat: :heartbeat: :heartbeat: )

Also check out the Airbag EP for more rock.

What's potentially more exciting is that they start to hit those emotional highs with less typical arrangements. Songs like Idioteque, Sit Down Stand Up, Life In a Glasshouse, Identikit, and more will offer the same catharsis without BIG GUITARS and Thom swinging for the rafters.

You're about to hit the good albums.

Dammit Spenno your continued under-appreciation of The Bends just really bums me out. I think it's one of the last truly unique rock guitar albums ever made.

And I shouldn't undersell Selway's contributions either. His "thud thud thud" drumming really helps those wonky angular guitars shine on The Bends.

I put this on the other day at work- thank you. Saw the videos years ago and was nice to revisit a high quality source.

This basement version of The Daily Mail just continues to slay me.

You guys realise the Basement versions of Daily Mail and Staircase are the studio versions right?

lol I did not. Will listen later, but my memory is that TDL had a bunch of reverb on it? This feels way grittier but maybe my memory is effed.

I like Staircase a whole lot, but man, Daily Mail is everything I don't like in a Radiohead song.

You’re insane! That outro jam is amazing.
