For a b-side, this is actually pretty and meticulously-crafted. I don’t think I would’ve minded if this was on “AMSP”. Though at the same time, this isn’t as heavy on the heart as the majority of that album.

Edit (OS: 8): DAMMIT! THE FAN IN ME CAN’T HOLD IT MUCH LONGER! I LOVE THIS SHIT!!!

I seriously don't know how to feel when hearing this song. It gives me so many emotions.

Was initially obligated to give this a 7 because it has that similar Samba taste to it as heard on Present Tense. But noOooO a AMSP throwaway has to sound godly as well

It's pretty good, but I can see why they left it out.

Radiohead's music always feels grandeur, and 'Ill Wind' is no exception. Thom Yorke's vocals are as beautiful yet haunting as ever and the instrumental is lush and sprawling. This single makes me feel like I am watching a great indie on the big screen.

Radiohead is back at it again with another really sonically intriguing track. The mixing on this track is done very well, as there is some excellent panning which utilizes the immersive vibe that most of their songs give off. It's not particularly dense in the lyrical sense, but it is apparent that isn't what they are going for here.

There's a perfect mix of groove and a little bit of an ominous factor when comparing the drum and the pipes, and the vocals here by Thom are simply other-worldly. ... read more

Wow. What a pleasant surprise. Radiohead are truly legends and masters of their craft. I obviously never bought any form of A Moon Shaped Pool, which would obviously include the Deluxe version. Hearing this for the first time is a delicious treat, as Radiohead provide their nuanced take on bossa nova. To think Thom had worked on this for nearly 10 years before this ever saw the light of day is a bit wild to think about, as it fits snuggly in the modern single cycle.

This track is icy cold, ... read more

Ahhh Radiohead, always delivering quality music. That's a well-known statement. I'm sad that this is just passed off as a B-side (even though that's what it is) because I would've loved to hear this on A Moon Shaped Pool. It fits the atmosphere and theme of the album pretty well with its spaced-out instrumental and melancholy vocals. Genuinely love this song so much.

Might be biased cause AMSP is one of my favourite albums ever but this is pretty fuckin great for a B-side

If this was actually on the album it would be somewhere in the middle for me, but MSP comes first or second for me, so I thought this was incredible.
