Radiohead have a long history of clearly and succinctly communicating the band's future intentions.

The spelling is actually "whoops". Educate yourself before posting again please. Unbelievable.

Thanks y'all.  I got lucky and had "good" cancer. Low risk of recurrence. I should have many years ahead of me in which to think back nostalgically about the collagen I used to have.  But as I've

If I’m being honest the only unreleased song im interested in hearing on a record is wake me. The rest can get in the bin unless they are majorly reworked. The Italy version of follow me around was nice but I can’t imagine anything worse than Thom actually releasing a song with those lyrics.

Follow Me Around has aged the worst out of any unreleased Radiohead song, I'd argue... that new arrangement was really great, agreed, but he really needs to axe some of those lyrics.

I'm in the minority in that I think I Froze Up is actually a really great song I guess hahaha.

Skirting could be a really fun, really unique, groovy arse song from them but they really struggle with that sort of song. Present Tense became this calypso bullshit. Overproduced. They need to realise that if a song sounds boring for three minutes, they need to tweak its structure – not add choirs, synths, vocal effects.

Haven't listened to it in a very long time, but remember liking the intro and outro quite a bit.  But it slogged on for like 5 minutes total.  And compared to the solo version the pace just felt too languid for the melody.

Like Nude.  I like the old version, but they just threw so much at it trying to get the old structure to work.  The version that made In Rainbows is much leaner and to the point.

Was excited about what it could become when it was just in Thom solo form.  But that full band version is an absolute snooze.

I sincerely doubt when it surfaces that it'll be that arrangement. I think it got shelved after that for a reason haha.

If the comment about Nude is a reaction to my post, then you misread.  I love the album version of Nude and think it's better than the old version.

Read it wrong on mobile. I knew something was up there.

they'll bust out a quickly 2-week made album that everyone will be lukewarm on / wish they had given it more time

songs will be too slow / middle of the road / folky / sub-dued / undercooked

 

one of the b-sides will be hardcore dark electro and the other will be a cover of clinic's distortions
