    Kettu believes the "Witch" video was intended to be happier than the song and the album, which, from what she's heard, is very dark. "They wanted the video to contrast with what they're playing and to wake people up a bit."

    So, the album is very dark.

    I thought TKoL and Tomorrow's Modern Boxes were pretty eerie and gloomy, interesting to think that this could be even darker.

    Yep! I guess you shop there too? Mad World and Recycled Books in Denton are also really great record stores, even though Mad World doesn't have much of a used collection like Josey does.

    Their vinyl packaging & content is always good, so it'll be a nice pickup

    Yeah, that's where I went on RSD to grab my J Dilla record. Also picked up Night Ranger's Midnight Madness and an Etta James LP while I was there.

    I love Recycled Books and Mad World but I'm only ever in Denton for karaoke so I don't frequent there as much.

    My favorite performance by them, with their Saitama 2008 show being a second. Although this video is missing the covers they did - at least I'm really, really certain those were performed at the Scotch Mist taping. They were probably omitted for copyright reasons or something along those lines.

    Can't wait to hear it.

    Hopefully it's available for streaming. I discovered my In Rainbows copy wasn't available even for use on iCloud, despite me ripping and uploading the CD myself. They also removed the album from Apple Music.

    The video is directed by Paul Thomas Anderson (There Will be Blood, The Master, Punch-Drunk Love, Inherent Vice) btw.

    Here's a very old Radiohead song that is probably on the album.

    Edit: True Love Waits closes the album what the fuck

    My favorite to least favorite so far after a couple listens. Will probably change over time. I can't rank it among their albums this early, but it'll be high. It's a heavily layered and emotional album. Certain Radiohead albums took a while to settle in for me, but this one clicked right away, it's a bit more accessible. Beautiful work from everyone, especially Jonny & Thom. Now to scrape up $100 for that Special Edition.

    1. True Love Waits ("Don't leave" :cry:)
    2. Glass Eyes (It's like something from a movie, it's beautiful)
    3. Identikit (The 2nd half :wub:)
    4. Ful Stop (This one is a trip)
    5. Daydreaming ("Half of my life" :cry:)
    6. Present Tense
    7. Decks Dark
    8. The Numbers
    9. Burn the Witch
    10. Tinker Tailor Soldier Sailor Rich Man Poor Man Beggar Man Thief
    11. Desert Island Disk

    2016 is just an insane year for music and we're not even half way through.

    Glass Eyes is absolutely heartbreaking those fucking lyrics make me feel isolated and alone.

    I never thought Radiohead would use a choir. Decks Dark is stunning.

    This dethrones Kid A as my second favorite Radiohead album after In Rainbows. Was kind of waiting for a more moving album since then, although Kid A is pretty unsettling in itself. The new album is just something I find much more relatable during this moment in my life.

    Watching The Basement 2008 performance and it brings back a lot of memories. Makes me sad though to realize how much time has passed since then.
