It's not quite Wizard of Oz and Dark Side...

You should head over to Puddlegum right now if you've been following the In Rainbows release. Apparently there's more to the album than originally thought...

Consider that In Rainbows was meant to complement OK Computer, musically, lyrically, and in structure. We found that the two albums can be knit together beautifully. By combining the tracks to form one playlist, 01 and 10, we have a remarkable listening experience. The transitions between the songs are astounding, and it appears that this was done purposefully.

The lyrics also seem to complement each other. There appears to be a concept flowing through the 01 and 10 playlist. Ideas in one song is picked up by the next, such as “Pull me out of the aircrash,” and “When I’m at the pearly gates, this will be my videotape.”

I'm trying it out now (alternating tracks between OK Computer and In Rainbows), and it does seem to work pretty well. As if I needed another reason to break out my Radiohead collection...

Read the whole article here. It's pretty crazy...


Just caught this over at the Mortigi Tempo Forums from poster Limnophilia:
As Penny pointed out in

the album title can be heard in the backing vocals of Reckoner.

BUT, did anyone notice the


starts precisely at the albums golden section??? I've got fucking chills; can anyone concur?

The Golden Section, Golden Ratio, whatever you want to call it is appears at 1/1.618, or about 61.8% of a way through of a work of art. See

In Rainbows is 42m 34s, or 2554 seconds long. 2554/1.618 is the 1578th or so second of the album, which is 2m49s into Reckoner, precisely when the strings come in with the album title.

I can't believe that is coincidental...can anyone confirm?

Whoa... Chills...
Maybe I SHOULD find my copy of the Wizard of Oz...
