I've been after that vinyl for a while, but the 180g version goes for a high price.

I like the four singles....and that's about it. It just never clicked with me. I understand the hype, but Radiohead bore me.

I have the 12" and CD version. Never listened to the 12" though. Leaving that for a special occasion.

I hate most of Radiohead I hear. I wouldn't even download that album using someone else's bandwidth.

Why? I'd be all for getting the vinyl, if I have a good reason to. I have the CD... what makes the vinyl so much better?

No difference, I think he was just stating it was his favorite album he has on vinyl. I don't think the CD was clipped or anything, so you'll get the same experience on either format.

Never said vinyl was better, by all means I think CDs have their ups opposed to vinyl. for one is mobility, lossless quality, and they are quick to swtich between tracks. For albums I like enough to buy.. and are avalibe on vinyl I get those. They are a different way to listen to music. And have a different feel to them. Much like different vaginas. It just depends on your mood I guess.

Haha, don't get me wrong I do like a bunch of their songs, especially when they're rocking out. But I just don't really understand why they're one of the most loved bands in the world. Most of their stuff seems dull on the whole, especially recent albums. I think it's just passed me by somehow, I've never given them much of a chance.

"Let down and hanging around,
Crushed like a bug in the ground"

I treasure my OK Computer CD. It's one of those rare albums that you can listen to again and again (and again) and never grow tired of it.

Most overlooked track - Subterranean Homesick Alien.

at first Let Down was my least favourite track, and now its one of my favourite on that album.


"such as pretty house, and such a pretty garden" is my favour line in the whole album

That would be No Surprises, not Let Down.

when I was posting that I was thinking "I wonder will they think I'm talking about let down". I meant:

1: let down is great

2: that line in no surprises is my favourite part in the whole album

so to conclude, lol
