A. Kid A

B. Amnesiac

I like the Kid A version. Only because I love the smooth feel and bassline and quirky percussion. Its more "listenable" to me.

and its such a good comedown after idioteque.... morning bell after knives out just feels like a wierd insanity before dollars and cents (i like em both, just amnesiac's version is a bit too wail-ey for me)

i actually like the live version on "I Might Be Wrong" mini-album best. In fact, there are a few songs on that CD that I prefer over the album versions, like "Like Spinning Plates" and "Everything's in its Right Place." to me these versions sounds like they have so much more effort and prescese than their studio counterparts.

But to answer your question, i'd choose the Kid A version. the Amnesiac version was too way out for me.

What's Radiohead's best b-side? I'd have to choose "Banana Co" for Pablo Honey era, "Talk Show Host" for The Bends, "Polyethelene Pts. I and II" for OK Computer, and "Cuttooth" for Kid A/Amnesiac. "Kinetic" is awesome too.

Same here. The raging guitar of Johnny makes that song much more entertaining.

WOW! after the underwhelming and craptacular response to my poll I guess I have to chime in with my vote. it goes to the amnesiac version. I like the slower more methodical, what I consider to be the more depressing version of the two, but hey, what the hell do I know?

I obviously meant no offense to the people who voted in the poll with my remarks. Just blown away with all the radiohead fans on this board there weren't more responses.

If I wanted to make someone's ears bleed, all I would do is give them a pair of Grado's (I like them, don't get me wrong,) and blast the Amnesiac version of "Morning Bell." It's such a plodding, horrible remix, and it's rather screechy and annoying. It's possibly my least favorite song of theirs, B-sides included.

I think they're both great, but Kid A's version will take the cake.

probably, because its the first version,

I missed Kid A, when released, IMO the Amnesiac version is way better...

Kid A. Amnesiac's not horrible though.

Kid A.  IMO, this is a song that is much better live than in studio.

100% agree.

Kid A Morning Bell. It's more driving, and the way it ends with those whale-ish guitar sounds just slays me every time.

My vote is for Kid A's version.  Interesting note, when I listen through my HD600's, there is some clipping (distortion?) occuring in the left channel, I can hear it with my IEM's too, but it is less pronounced.  Anyone else notice this?

 

I ripped the CD to Apple Lossless but I don't think that the format would be the culprit.
