you were probably listening to In Rainbows.

I used to skip school in the mornings and sit on the rainy cathedral steps and listen to it on my headphones, wrapped up in it's warmth amidst all the desolation.

IN MY OPINION, MAYBE the best album of all time.

Perhaps.

It's a great one, no doubt about it.

yeah, I remember joining this board just after it came out and it was very busy in those days, I used to be glued to the screen, it was amazing finding other like minded individuals, all in raptures over this one little thing.

seems pretty quiet now, obviously TKOL hasn't connected in the same way.

Idk, it was very busy here most of last year and this year during the American tour. Keep in mind we're nearly two years removed from tkol

My ex-girlfriend was mad at me because I miss our date due waiting for the mp3 files to be up online. I still remember those MT LP7 album and how everyone was convince that the album was going to be called "Nightmare Splash". Remember when Nigel posted those bits of the songs.?

In Rainbows was incredible, I became a fan of Radiohead right after it was released. The first songs I listened to were 15 step and House of Cards. These were the songs that made me fall in love with these guys.

don't get me wrong, i love TKOL, its just not a very emotionally engaging album, more like a beautifully cold sculpture I think. While IR has a warmth to it.

what made it even more exciting!! was that it was packaged up as a double disc for the boxset, the bonus disc idea was uber cool!! uber rocking!! but that album In Rainbows was something special. One out of the bag, out of a hat.

The King of Limbs reminds me of green and nature, very ambient, even the front cover had a lot of geenery in the painting.

In Rainbows was very colourful and diverse but i suppose was obviously more live full band sounding.

I think KOL was meant to be something a bit different. light and movement, krautrock, but still dark. i'm thinking up images of headphones and Kid A bears.

IR got me back into Radiohead fanboydom, I was immediately sucked in by 15 Step and Bangers and Mash, and later Reckoner.

I love TKOL as much, but for different reasons. It didn't grab me quite as much right out of the gate (except for Give up the Ghost, which I'd seen live before the album was released), but it's improving much like a big wine gets better as it sits in your glass.
The most terrifying thing is to accept oneself completely.

yeah I agree.

TKOL has that 'woodsy', earthy feel and even the electronic elements are very organic sounding, unlike say 'Idioteque', in which is purposefully mechanical and jarring.

Texture, ambience and rhythm take precedence whilst IR was all about the SONG

I remember lurking this forum a few years after it was released, and it wasn't fully accepted as the bliss it now is apparantly

not dark enough or other silly complaints like that, the latest album always gets the most jabs
