Love this. Kid A has to be the best Radiohead album.

haha this is my favorite Radiohead song and my fav Radiohead album..
Funny Jacob, I find this to be one of the weakest songs on the album. But that is like saying Gangs of New York was a weak performance by Daniel Day Lewis. Andrew is right, you could start a firestorm with comments like that. ;)
Blank stares alternating with teary smiles.
Jacob, you sir, are asking for trouble. You'd be surprised how many people would be up in arms about that sorta comment, my good man.

This song is by far the best on Kid A. One of the few songs that saved that album from being mediocre in my eyes.
Fantastic! I dropped to my knees and screamed like a school girl when they played this on SNL.
up there with Radiohead's best songs

gotta love thom
this song stands alone on its own little island in time. I remember when this came out and it sounded like it could have come from the future or possibly discovered in an archeologica l dig. Love it!
I luv the lyrics and the song:)

my FAVORITE effin' song by them!! i've waited forever for it to play!!!

reminds me of some great nites at one of my fav bars in North Hollywood
This song is by far the best RH song in their catalog!! Excellent from eerie beginning to jazzy ending. Should have been on OK computer (the best RH album ever) and replaced one of the weaker songs!
This song was on there In the basement studio recording for In Rainbows????
