  • You are fucked up, fucked up.
  • I discovered this track by using the Flow function of my Deezer Premium+ subscription on my iPad. Because I enabled AirPlay (audio only) to my Denon hifi (DNP-720AE component, the Network Player of my quality soundsystem) it sounded heavenly, a pure relaxation on an idle sundaymorning. Thom Yorke keeps surprising me, I still listen to the single cd's like e.g. My Iron Lung that I bought in the Nineties (more than 20 years ago), Kid A is my favorite Radiohead album. The only band that produced nothing but great tracks, except just a little few ones that I despise because I get nervous listening to it: Piramid Song was imho a melancholic sounding failure and I am not really fond of the album "OK Computer"... Pardon me for my quite large explanation, but what else could you expect from an Audiophile, experienced DJ with more than 30 years profound musical knowledge, along with an extensive BUT also selective taste, in brief: a very eclectic high fidelity enthousiast like me? ;-)
