I’m speechless after watching it just now. Got chills during Dawn Chorus. The visuals and choreography on it are unreal. Excited for more PTA/Head collaborations in the future If they keep happening.

Absolutely.

I only got a chance to listen to the album once this morning on a walk but looking forward to listening to it again on my morning walk tomorrow.

The short made me feel really good about finally buying a 4K TV.

It was really refreshing to see Thom in such a personal light.

I guess I've written so many hundreds of words about 'head related stuff in the past I can't be bothered giving a real lengthy appraisal of this album

after a few listens it sounds very cool, and would make excellent soundtrack/library music, but I can't ever see myself wanting to listen to it in a 'I wanna hear some songs' way like I do with proper 'head tracks

I think it's probably his best and most interesting sounding solo record and way better than atoms for peace or modern boxes
I think we're too far separated from the eraser for me to make a comparison beyond 'that one sounds like that and this one sounds like this'

I guess it just reinforces for my tastes, Radiohead truly are a gestalt phenomenon

Love the vid

The album is great but I think it’d be better if it ended with The Axe.

Impossible Knots and Runwayaway are clearly the two weakest tracks imo. Shave those off and you have a really good 38 minute album.

Actually I guess Impossible Knots isn’t a bad track on its own but it doesn’t fit the rest of he album

On a first run through the track that made the biggest impression was Last I Heard (...He Was Circling the Drain)

Felt like there were a good amount of recycled ideas on here - backwards tape sounds as the backbone to the beat, the gurgling, cacophony of voices, the echoed vocals that trail off almost aimlessly, etc. I guess that's an uncharitable way of putting it - maybe rather it felt like there were lots of ideas he had before that he took in different directions, which is actually kinda cool to be able to hear - Radiohead songs filtered through a slightly different lens

pretty hard to choose between HTTT and AMSP actually. i see those albums flaws as really different because HTTT is very uneven and has some songs i really can't get into but some i really love while all of AMSP is nice enough but there are no standouts.

i can't really rank Susperia as it doesn't feel like a head release. rightly or wrongly, i can't really think of anything as part of the 'headverse when thom's vocals aren't a big part of it.

if i included b-sides then amnesiac would be above OKC

i finally watched it with a group of friends, since for some reason they only think i listen to radiohead and nothing else, and we all loved it.

the choreography was dope, the cinematography, top notch, the theme is expected but universally relevant.

the experience is beautiful.

i'm very nostalgic for HTTT as it was the first record that came out when i was a fan. had the cover art as a shirt from WASTE, etc.
actually feel like it has aged pretty well.
