I haven't tried this Exhibition yet but I'm going to assume the track you're reffering to is the same that can be found on "I Might Be Wrong" (2001) which are live recordings from their 2000-2001 tour. You can find it on Spotify (and probably Apple Music\Tidal, as well as on Youtube)

It's on the extra disc of the Kid Amnesia reissue they just released. It sits between the album version and the live version of the I Might Be Wrong EP. I personally prefer that beautiful pared down live rendition of the track though.

I'm pretty unfamiliar with Radiohead apart from the popular songs (while playing this I only realised that Eighthours avatar was a radiohead thing), but this was a lovely little thing. My irony-poisoned brain kept thinking of Arcane Kids and their Bubsy and Sonic Dreams Collection while playing it though.

 I just wandered round and ended up at the Pakt Like Sardines exhibit and got drawn to the gantry and have spent the last 20 minutes watching and listening. I’ve then come on the forum to see someone post the exact same thing. Spooky coincidence.
  I had no idea what to expect but waited till the kids and wife were out of the way, put my headphones on and sat in a dark room with it. 
 As soon as I went up the first set of steps I loved it. 
 That such an unexpected treat exists and is free is incredible. 
 Amazing.

Think some of the floors perhaps? 


Yeah that’s what I’m thinking of.
 

Such a subtle thing, but really helped give it a feeling of a real place and emphasising the contrast with what comes later.

Regarding the amazing value proposition: I do wonder if it's going to only be available for a limited time...

 

When this was announced I assumed it was going to be VR - I'm guessing the Epic deal and PSVR2 being slow to materialise have complicated things on that front.

 

My somewhat *cough* sub-PS5 level GPU isn't quite up to the job but the parts I played (up to You And Whose Army I think?) were amazing. It's so engrossing with lights down and sound cranked up that parts of it felt quite VR-like even in pancake mode.

They really pulled off the feeling of being inside the album artwork, and then of course I loved the bits where you're

transported inside the music.

 

I think my favourite bit was

controlling the drum and bass in National Anthem.

 

Did everyone find the bit where you can cover the walls with big orange lyrics by

walking anti-clockwise around the dingy corridors

?

I'm completely unfamiliar with any Radiohead post Kid A. Reckon I'd still get much out of this? 

 

Yeah, its all Kid A and Amnesiac tracks, so you'll know half of them.

 

Also, give "In Rainbows" a try, you won't regret it!
