all i need
Well I stayed up late for this, we might as well talk about it, yeah? Upon first (and second and third) listen, In Rainbows exceeds all the expectations we didn't really have any time to develop. Some initial, hasty thoughts: not really feeling "Bodysnatchers," but "Nude" through the almost dubby "House of Cards" is essentially a perfect 6-song sequence, highlighted by the "Julia"-esque "Faust Arp," and the hypnotic, breakbeat-laden dreamscape, "All I Need." My first impression is that this is the band's most enchanting, instantly enjoyable work since OK Computer or Kid A. But that might have to do with the fact that it's 2 AM. That's all I'll say for now, back to listening to "All I Need" and "Reckoner" for the 5th time. Oh, and the Black Lips killed on Conan too. Good night all around.
