King of Limbs is a very good Thom Yorke album. Only a mediocre Radiohead album.

I've been listening to more King of Limbs lately in preparation for the concert and while i like the second half of the album much more, it's still not a go to album for me.

By the way steve, they completely faked me out with True Love Waits yesterday. I thought it was the whole song and ran back to my seat. Only to have it be the intro.

Sorry I didn't get to say hello, it took 45 minutes to get into the parking lot cause the cops redirected us to the Campbell's lot. Meanwhile, friends who drove in 30 minutes behind us got to the arena earlier because they got to park in the main lot. bha.

No worries!

It was a great show and I appreciate you helping out with the tix.

I knew he did an either "True Love Waits" or a Neil Young intro to EIIRP. It was a great show. Thom's voice was stellar. I now only despise two songs on the King of Limbs - "Little by Little" and "Feral" which of course they played both. I wasn't a "Morning Mr. Magpie" fan until the show. I thought it sounded great.

Little By Little is too poppy for me.

I purposely didn't look up any set lists prior to the show so I didn't know what was coming.

They left off some greats (biggest disappointment of what I expected was no "Weird Fishes"). Some day I have to see "How to Disappear Completely" live.

there are 3 songs I always want to hear. They played 1/4 of one.

Exit Music
No Surprises
True Love Waits

I think the band is thoroughly embarrassed by their first album. The last time I heard a song was Lurgee on the Amnesiac tour.

They never play anything from Pablo Honey. If there was ever a tune from it that I'd like to hear - it's "Stop Whispering" which if you listen closely, you'll find Clap Your Hands Say Yeah totally ripped it off in "Let the Cool Goddess Rust Away"

They had the grunge thing going on Pablo Honey and they've left that sound in the dust. I think it's been 3 years at least since they last played "Creep".

Yeah, i would never expect to hear Creep in concert. Stop Whispering is one of my favorite songs.

What's funny is you can hear some bits of Pablo Honey in The Bends. But mostly, the Bends is the end of Thom Yorke singing in that style.

And then of course Street Spirit heralds in OK Computer.

Let me put in Stop Whispering and CYHSY right now back to back.
