    I was disappointed with the newest album. That's all.

    Miss B, I think the only So-Cal date will be at Coachella unfortunately. I'll be at both the Houston and Austin shows. Even though King of Limbs sucked, they're still one of the best live bands around.

    I heard they may do a "secret" show. I love my little bird that tells me these things.

    I *love* their newest album.

    But I hated them live at Lollapalooza.

    I'd give them another live chance, though, I'd love to see KoL live.

    Edit: I've watched that King of Limbs studio performance on Paladium about 900 times. HIGHLY recommended.

    Not my most fave album, but I highly recommend Separator and Little by Little as my top two favorites. Lotus Flower isn't bad. The rest is just nice background music to me. Other fans like Codex, but it's just not my thing.

    Me, I only got seats though, so there's no point in me standing in line. I'm very surprised they're playing Austin, they haven't played here in years.

    Yep. They're putting out the whole Basement performance on DVD/Blu-ray (EDIT: and iTunes) shortly, with "Supercollider" as a bonus track. Love that song.

    "Staircase" and "The Butcher" are also really strong, but I can see why they kept the LP to just 8 songs this time. It works better as a snapshot, a cropped-in photograph, rather than a long sprawling opus. Long live The King (of Limbs)!

    TKOL is an incredible album. I had been waiting over 2 and a half years for it and when it finally came out, I almost broke down in tears, thinking that Radiohead had finally disappointed me, disappointed is an understatement with the way I felt. But I wouldn't accept that as the final verdict, it was the 4th listen of the album that it clicked, clicked is also an understatment. Went from really disliking it to absolutely loving virtually every track on it, "Feral" being the one I took the longest to warm up to, majority of fans felt the same with that track. Then when the live renditions of the songs showed up at Glastonbury, it blew me away all the more. Then TKOL - From the Basement showed up, damn. "Bloom" being the most kick ass live song of the bunch.

    I was fortunate enough to snag a ticket for one of their NYC shows a couple of months ago and now await their North East run of their tour hoping to at least attend 3 of them.

    Can't get into the latest album at all. My expectations were through the roof after the masterpiece that was In Rainbows. Those expectations were properly shat on.

    I love the King of Limbs, even if it isn't as massive or tense as other works. Oh, and they're going back in studio next year.

    Ha! That's one thing they're good at! Shitting on people's expectations. After the transition from OK Computer to Kid A I learned to not have expectations with them. I know I'll always end up loving whatever they turn out. Yeah. I'm one of those.

    I honestly had a hard time with In Rainbows at first.

    TKoL is honestly one of my favorite Radiohead albums. It has this wit, emotion, and immediacy that is hard to pin down elsewhere in their body of work (although I love them). The last trio of songs is unparalleled in their discography, IMO (maybe topped by Treefingers - Optimistic - In Limbo). I, too, was lucky to see them in NYC for the first time, and it was such a great experience - it really humanized them and their music for me, even after being a big fan for five years.

    The King of Limbs is a remarkably good album.

    And on a related note, I love watching this band confound expectations time and time again .

    i loved a lot of their jumping around in the past--- the arc from the bends through amnesiac was very enjoyable, if but jarring to most of their fans. i ate all of those albums right up. while i enjoy a lot of hail to the theif, it's been a slow decline for me since that record. liked a handful off in rainbows. don't like the latest album at all. i have no way of qualifying this, but it just seems to me like they're not really trying much anymore, though i can't tell if i dislike the songs or the constant critical praise more.

    I've seen other people level this accusation as well, and I'm not sure where it's coming from because obviously they still work furiously hard to get the recordings right, spending endless amounts of time working in the studio and then play giant tours. It's just not on the constant treadmill-like schedule of a record label anymore, but I assume more in balance with their family lives. After 20+ years in a band there's just no way to please everybody.

    yeah, that's why i'm not sure if i can qualify it as a legit complaint. that said, it is possible to phone it in on the songwriting, even if every single detail is perfect on the production front. i think it's a mix of the dry production and the songwriting that make their latest material fall a bit flat for me. that said, my biggest complaint about radiohead in general, as hinted at above, is that no critic seems able or willing to give them honest criticism that isn't 100% lip service, but i do believe this is their most polarizing album to date. i recall opinions being very mixed when it came out.

    i don't wanna dog on RH, since they've done right by me for so many years. i wanna like the new material so bad it hurts.

    There's now an eighth TKOL RMX EP out for download, and on Dec. 19th the Basement live versions of "Staircase" and "The Daily Mail" will be released as a single.

    Don't think it was "officially" released, but you should be able to grab it from here.

    Hoping for at least a NY area show in a bigger venue. Got shut out of the Roseland Ballroom shows like a lot of other people (Ticketmaster page never refreshed to show the drop down bars for selecting tickets until about 10 minutes after the hour of the on sale, even with repeated refreshing). Or even Philly or something close enough, big enough that it won't sell out instantly.

    Wow, just heard 'Staircase' and 'The Daily Mail' today. Great songs. I actually had 'Staircase' on my HDD for awhile and never knew it was there. I had my media player on random and 'Staircase' came on, I was "Hey, what's this?". Then I went to wikipedia to see if any other songs had been released recently, then I see 'The Daily Mail', I try to find a copy of it. I got it. Good songs. The only thing, I have no clue how I got 'Staircase', the quality is so much better than the copy I found of 'The Daily Mail'. Oh, well, I guess someone above mentioned a single coming out. Nice.
