Yeah, during their 2007 tour, they played “Planet Telex,” “The Bends,” and “Street Spirit,” so he must not have caught them on that tour. I can’t remember them playing anything from The Bends in 2011, but I distinctly remember “Paranoid Android” and “Pyramid Song.” I definitely agree that their setlists are nice mix of old and new material.

Living in PA my whole life, and now living in Philly, this article really soldified why I love this band. Driving in the car by myself, with this record, with the volume turned all the way up, has been my favorite way of listening to it so far. The War on Drugs, and Kurt Vile, are the best musical ambassadors Philly could ask for and “Lost in the Dream” deserves all the hype it is getting. Thanks for this feature.

Is Beck un-hip now? I wasn’t aware of that.

And “The Missing” might be the highlight of this record.

I was thinking the same thing. They have too many top-10 worthy songs. Not a bad thing.

Yeah, the second half of KoL (Lotus Flower – Seperator) is just about my favorite sequence of Radiohead songs ever. I don’t know what it is, but I find the guitar lick in Seperator to be downright fucking awesome.

Oh man, that’s a good choice too. This should’ve been a top 25 list

Yeah, the omission of “Handshake Drugs” and “I Am Trying to Break Your Heart” is ridiculous. But so “Pot Kettle Black” and “ELT” and “One Wing” and the list goes on and on. I couldn’t even attempt to name my top 10 favorite Wilco song so I commend the valiant effort.

But seriously, “Handshake Drugs” is top 5 for sure.
