    Does anyone else think that this song is just absolutely amazing? I think this is in the top 4 or 5 best Radiohead songs. I think it has the spooky, etheral sound and when put in with Thomas Yorke's unique voice, turns out to be one of the best Radiohead songs ever.

    Other favorite Radiohead songs:

    "Paranoid Android" (the slow part is amazing)

    "Exit Music (For A Film)" (love that bass distortion in the middle of the song"

    "Thinking About You" (my favorite song on PH)

    "Fake Plastic Trees" (Most of "The Bends" is awesome)

    "Sail to the Moon" (sounds like "The Great Gig In The Sky")

    I used to be a pretty big Radiohead fan but I kind of lost interest in them right around the time Kid A came out. OK Computer and The Bends are fantastic albums though.

    "How To Disappear Completely" is by far my favorite song on Kid A, and one of my favorite Radiohead songs period. Such a powerful, atmospheric track.

    Radiohead- when they're good, they're real good. When they're bad, they're real boring.

    How to Disappear is indeed a lovely song. That and National Anthem are the highlights of Kid A for me.

    i've always said if i was gonna do myself in, it would be to any song by this mortal coil. however, if those discs weren't handy, almost without doubt, "how to disappear completely" would be playing in the background.

    that being said...some of my faves ( [​IMG] denotes extra cool)

    amnesiac
    packt like sardines...

    I think Ok Computer onward would really benefit from 5.1 SACD or DVD-Audio.

    If I had to pick one it would definately be OK Computer. Great recording to begin with, but get someone like Elliot Scheiner to mix it? Whoa! I wouldn't leave my house!!



    P.S. I have to give Doves: Lost Souls a shout out for a potentially great SACD in 5.1. I wish the studios would start jumpin!

    Man, OK Computer or KidA or Hail to the Theif in 5.1 would be awesome.. think of how trippy it would be to listen to it while 'relaxing' [​IMG]

    Great, great track - definitely the highlight of Kid A. I think I prefer this album to Amnesiac but I prefer Hail to both of them. That one is just on repeat play in my car constantly.

    OK Computer would be a definite SACD/DVD-A purchase for me. All this talk about it makes me want to dust off my copy and pop it in.

    Radiohead on DVD-A the mere thought of it makes me want to jump up and down and yell "oh oh oh" like a little kid.

    While I like HTDC, Everything In Its Right Place is my fave track from Kid A. I'd love that album and Amnesiac in 5.1!

    Jordan, I cannot describe how much I love "How to Disappear Completely". I first heard it on the K-State radio station and was absolutely mesmerized by it. I bought Kid-A later that week and was pleasantly surprised. I hadn't realized that Everything in its Right Place was on that same album. I had heard EiiRP on the Vanilla Sky soundtrack and loved it also.

    The entire Kid-A album is one I play quite often when I need the world to slow down!
