Damn you Mr Bob (if that is indeed your real name)

Yes....I know...the article doesn't have the live album in...and I also know that you know..that this article was written and edited before the Live Album came out (by about three months) and not even the grand high leader of the ASL could've seen it coming AND been able to write a deeply meaningful and incisive review using nothing but prescience and possibly a pair of crystal balls.

Anyway...its a great album...I particularly love the Live 'Like Spinning Plates' taken from Amnesiac...that truly demonstrates how experimental some of the Amnesiac album was in terms of techniques used...and reveals the beautiful song hiding beneath the somewhat inaccessible (albeit pretty damn good) reversed music of the Amnesiac version. (what i mean is that in the live version the piano is played forwards..as opposed to being recorded then reversed...and Thom sings forwards..as opposed to backwards and then reversed).
It also features the lovely track (unreleased until this point) that is a self proffessed (on the publicity sticker strapped to the front of some of the CD's) Live classic, 'True Love Waits'..a lovely acoustic track somewhat in the style of some of the older radiohead tracks.
National Anthem is fantastic (for the second time) as is Idioteque...this is a worthy purchase even for those (like me) who already had/have all but one of the tracks on studio recordings (NB its not really a full on live experience for all Radiohead fans..those (imho blasphemous) people amongst us who think that everything post OK Computer is a heap of turd may well not enjoy this...although tracks like the 'Like Spinning Plates' and 'True Love Waits' may well make for a slightly more accessible introduction to 'new' Radiohead).

There you go Bob...and I wrote that in about three minutes....(which is why its probably quite lame) put that in your pipe and smoke it

Mmm! Tasty.

I knew that the article was written previously but I thought that you would have considered updating (PS. I preferred the article before the editors came in a moderated it. You know the 'head better than they do.)

True Love Waits is now one of my favourite songs of all time. "I'm not living, I'm just killing time" has just notched into position one on my list of lyrical philosophies (edging out "I know I beleive in nothing but it is my nothing" - Faster, the Manics.)

Like Spinning Plates is glorious sounding and Idioteque is fantastically urgent and powerful for what is basically Thom moaning along to a simple backing track.
The title track is groovy as fcuk live as well.
Dollars and Cents doesn't quite match up to the eccentric joy of the album version but hey, you can't have everything eh?

A great album all round.

PS. I didn't start this forum just to p**s you off. I wasn't knocking your article at all. I just thought I'd prove that we still actually read your stuff and care about your opinion.

we hope you are ok.
