Most who know me well, know I'm not a big RH fan. It's not dislike in anyway, I really dig some songs,
but a whole record...no. When I heard O's recent DSDB of this show, I really liked what I heard and wanted
to hear more, plus I knew how awesome that Cure source was from a year before in the same venue.
The mix, as usual, was spot-on and the performance seemed inspired. I'm no big fan, as I said, but to me
there was something special about this show. I can honestly say that hearing the show in it's entirety,
twice now, is the most Radiohead I've ever listened to in the span of my life vs. their existence. And I
really enjoy it.
But I found the DSBD to be rather harsh to listen to on its own, and sought out the AUD to see if it
could make a difference, add something warm to it...and it did. Something warm indeed, plus the ambience
of the venue and the crowd for the applause and quieter passages.
I think it's real sweet like this, the best of three sources to make one complete and full-fleshed
representation of the show.
