Continuing on the Pink Floyd vs Porcupine Tree vs Radiohead comparisons... the bass line on this one definitely has a Pink Floyd Saucerful of Secrets vibe.

Good news for me as I love all of the three bands above!

But IMHO those two records are among the top 10 or 15 albums ever.  Yes - better than Dark Side of the Moon.

And by my reckoning after those two Radiohead was totally free to experiment anyway they wanted to and for me 85% of those experiments have been really great.

Yes, and "Amnesiac".

I too feel like Radiohead built up an enormous amount of credit first with The Bends and then, to a lesser degree, with OK Computer. Then they dedicated the rest of their career to burning through every last cent.

Sounds like something from David Bowie's last album

Well, I do love Radiohead and I haven't heard this piece in a while but since these days I'm hearing too many Radiohead songs on RP I'm feeling pretty much like the song that was played before this one.

Much to my surprise, I quite like this. It might be that track you look for when the sun is right in your eyes on the horizon and you still have 2 hours riding to go. Monkey butt has set in, but you refuse to give in. This might just make it all bearable.
Perhaps that is what the album cover is all about, I just realised.

I think that this borders on the sublime as far as improv of The Groove goes. It creates a sinuous, circuitous, fabulous, fun soundscape!

Most of Radiohead's music has gotten ho-hum over the past 8 years (phoning it in).  This is an exception, great song.  I hope they can get out of this funk and back to some great songwriting.
 
I agree but I'd say more like 14 years of ho-hum.
Amnesiac (2001) was their last great album in my ever-so-humble opinion.
Hail to the Thief (2003) was still very good but since then it feels like they're sliding down the wrong side of the bell curve.

This.

Comparisons to Pink Floyd or Steven Wilson are perplexing.  I suppose Radiohead has gotten to a point where they can phone it in and people will just buy it based on the name. 

Radiohead peaked with Pablo Honey.
