I found interesting how people is putting Identikit, CAH or SOTS... I like these tracks a lot, really, dont get me wrong, but how do you know how to rank them on a favourite songs list if we dont know how is going to sound really at the end? is like saying Dark Knight Rises is the between the best movies of the year and we haven't seen it just the trailers...

I would loved to put Identikit (my favourite from these songs), but i just couldn't for these reasons I mentioned...

I'm not judging, I just wanna know :P


They like it (Identikit) enough to play it at almost all of the shows, while the other new songs were only played a handful. Thom has commented a few times that it's one of his current favorites, and it seems to be evolving, which makes me think it will be around for a while. Even if it changes into something different on a future album, I will always fondly remember it in this form, because you don't get to hear new rh unreleased songs live every day, but I actually got to hear this one. And then I had it in my head for days and days. It's got Thom and Ed overlapping vocals, beautiful bass and synthesizers, and that reggae beat.

But I agree with you to a point, and I couldn't put it at #1.

a song isnt just the final studio recording. in some cases i probably rated a song more based on how they perform it live (morning bell for example). if they fuck skirting up in the studio somehow it'll probably bring my average ranking for it down but i'll always love how they played it this year.

i didn't include any unreleased songs, or solo stuff for that matter, although i think both are fair game when assessing the band generally and there would be a fair few in there if i'd bothered. Skirting would be right up there. i'm a bit burnt after what happened to Give Up The Ghost though to be honest, the best, killer harmony from the Cambridge debut is absent from every subsequent version of the song and its ruined my appreciation of the song (i should probably just say 'well that version still exists and is top 5 for me', but um, i haven't).

Man I thought the studio version of GUTG did it a lot of justice, considering how badly it could have ended up.

i like let down but it has always been near the bottom of OKC for me

i didnt include any non-band stuff as i can do without the extra headaches of comparisons.

ive written a few times on here about feeling that EXACT way about GUTG. the ending of the cambridge version is infinitely heartbreaking whereas the studio version is simply heartwarming but not nearly as good. just the way he drops his voice gradually whilst singing 'arms' at the end is what made it work. its still great but man the cambridge version was in reckoner territory.

i do miss that little hook, but i dunno if it drastically affected my enjoyment of it. i get the 'heartbreaking' vs 'heartwarming' thing, the album version is definitely more comforting than the debut. i dunno if it's that hook or it's the performance he put on or what, but it was more crushing in that first recording. i dunno, when they came through arizona thom talked about missing their families before playing GUTG and i think that captures how i feel about GUTG from king of limbs onwards. it's a home to come back to.

Some of those songs are nothing more than I Want None Of This sounding like Thom doesn't even care about singing the song. I wish I could say more but I can't. They have made some good songs in recent years like Weird Fish and All I Need, but some of them are not so good like Go Slowly and Codex. I also thought that after listening to Reckoner-House Of Cards-Jigsaw Falling Into Place they where some of the best songs since The Bends album.
After the release of The King Of Limbs album I found myself steering away from Kid A, Amnesiac and Hail To The Thief because I just don't like them as much.

it probably doesn't help that i was standing a few metres in front of Thom when he debuted it. i'm not normally one for 'it was better live/before' talk, but i just don't understand why that harmony wouldn't be used again- unless it actually postdated the studio recording, but we haven't heard it in recent live takes either of course. i wonder if Thom simply improvised it that night and forgot about it? i don't imagine Thom looks himself up on youtube after gigs...

i was about 10 feet from thom at coachella when he performed gutg in 2010. it was amazing. i have to say that the album version never really lived up to that for me. when tkol came i did really like the album version, but it wasnt the same as thom solo. now, a year later, it is the only song i often skip on the album. i was even a bit disappointed seeing it live this tour. its just interesting because it was one of my favs when the album first came out. perhaps its just sort of one dimensional now....doesnt hold the attention.

I think I have settled with the idea that Identikit will be a different song if it makes it out of the studio. At first I wanted to preserve it in time, but now I'm getting anxious waiting to see if they will take it to another level. I'm cheering for it to make it on the next album, whenever that may be. The first few performances, I think they didn't know what the audience would make of it, and Thom sang it in such a way that felt kind of humble and shy, but a little bit manic too. I felt like I was watching them work through this song in real time. It was so fresh and of-the-moment.

Man I think Radiohead were on such a roll around IR time. Even if Bangers + Mash and Last Flowers came out a little flat, I still think this is a period when they produced a lot of their best material.
