    This song is like a transcription of the mind of a psychotic bipolar depressed person. There's despair, melancholy and sadness portraited by Thom's vocal harmony and that weird beat; and then that small glimpse of hysteria and joy when the drums break in.

    This song is so massively underrated. When I read Radiohead fans discuss the few RH songs they don't like, this song comes up a lot. I've no fucking clue why! I

    I just realized what an insane vocal performance this is. Thom's voice is too good.

    One of Radiohead's great goosebumps songs and "they want young blood (which is me)."

    I love how they do eerie... their ominous isn't bad either. Well done!

    Oh, I love the handclaps. They seem tortured and and reluctant and slightly off-kilter...just like the song itself.
