The guitars on the chorus of 'Paper' are some of my all-time favorite guitars.
(Yes, they remastered these shits.)

yeah, the big box set that came out a few years back had all the albums remastered + bonus tracks/videos (available separately too). the sound is positively amazing.

Hmmm... This is a weird one. I don't feel it's overall as strong as More Buildings, although the highs are very high. It contains some of my favourite TH songs: Air, Cities, Animals, Life During Wartime. And some of my least favourites: It's A Kind Of MagicHeaven. Too many mumbly half-songs that kind of meander in a hookless, freeform way - I'm not keen on this style Memories Can Wait, Mind, Paper etc. The latter tunes, were it not for Eno's presence feel like a step back. So it's a real hotchpotch as far as I'm concerned and it doesn't really hang together as well as the other records in their catalogue.

Crazy talk imo, but then I don't like More Songs much. Some of the funniest song lyrics ever are on this album.
