Every day I fall more and more in love with Ful Stop. Followed by Identikit, Cut a Hole, then a little further out, Skirting. Ful Stop just has so much damn energy, tension, and catharsis--all rolled up into one awesome song.

 

You?

They all have potential to be 9/10's. It was just a little hard to replicate what they want it to sound like on stage with limited synth/FX

Definitely agreed. I say this to myself before every album's release, but this time I mean it: LP9 has the potential to be my favorite Radiohead album. It reminds me so much of the energy, urgency, and darkness HTTT had, but with the experience and refinement of IR/TKOL.

 

Full disclosure: HTTT and IR are currently my favorite albums.

All but Skirting (which sounds kind of bad compared to the early versions) are great. I picked Cut a Hole, but it could easily go to Identikit or Ful Stop.

Everybody who thinks Skirting is the worst new song deserves to die in my honest opinion.

It totally is though. They're all great but Full Stop and Identikit are mind blowing and Cut a Hole has a cooler melody.

Yer into that heartwarming folk I guess

Full Stop is cool and Cut A Hole is nice but the standouts are clearly Identikit and Skirting, and Skirting is just gorgeous box you are insane.

I just can't get behind Skirting, personally. Maybe it will all click for me with a studio recording. Cut a Hole, on the other hand, deserves much more respect.

 

What I like about the new songs (especially Cut a Hole and Ful Stop--not so much Skirting) is they have this very cathartic A/B song structure. Lots of tension builds up, then it's released with a very different type of melody/rhythm/etc. Like Bodysnatchers or some of the songs from HTTT.

Identikit is the best but

Something has to be done about that transition into "broken hearts" section. It blows/ is non-existent

Why is there such little love for cut a hole?

 

All these songs are great but I'm probably most excited to find out how cut a hole is going to evolve. Also, the lyrics are incredible imo.

Surprised a lot of people don't dig Skirting.,.that guitar melody along with Ed's backing vocals without are amazing...all that's probably missing is a big epic sounding finale.

 

Identikit is clearly the most incredible song thus far and I haven't heard the other two enough to make a decision either way yet.

As long as you aren't suggesting cutting that section. Smooth out, possibly. But it must stay.

'Cut a Hole' is promising. A really good synth ballad. I prefer 'Skirting' on the piano IMHO, like how Thom played it live in 2010. 'Ful Stop' is great too. It's a rock song. It's got so much to shout about, but somehow it's not 'spectacular' like the other rock ones they have like 'There, There' or '2 + 2 = 5'.

 

'Identikit' was a bit weird to me at first. I couldn't really get it when I first listened to it when it was first posted on Youtube. But then, I watched it being performed on Austin City Limits, it was a dancer. It was a real gem. It was like a great sing-a-long, a great tune to dance too. Maybe it's a little underdeveloped now, but it would be really awesome to have it on LP9.

Cut a Hole is actually the only song of the new four that doesn't feature synths.

What's making the synth sound then?
