And visually and musically the album is about finding the book and opening the pages. Radiohead announced Amnesiac on their website in January , three months after the release of Kid A. Amnesiac debuted at number two on the US Billboard with sales of ,, surpassing Radiohead's , first-week sales of Kid A. After Radiohead's previous album, Kid A , had divided listeners, many hoped for a return to their earlier rock sound for Amnesiac. Robert Hilburn of the Los Angeles Times felt that Amnesiac , compared to Kid A , was "a richer, more engaging record, its austerity and troubled vision enriched by a rousing of the human spirit".
It's hardly easy to digest but nor is it impossible to swallow. Several critics felt Amnesiac was less cohesive than Kid A. AllMusic critic Stephen Thomas Erlewine wrote that it "often plays as a hodgepodge", and that the albums "clearly derive from the same source and have the same flaws The first CD contains the original studio album; the second CD collects B-sides from Amnesiac singles and live performances; the DVD contains music videos and a live television performance. Radiohead, who left EMI in ,  had no input into the reissue and the music was not remastered.
The "Collector's Editions" were discontinued after Radiohead's back catalogue was transferred to XL Recordings in Adapted from the Amnesiac liner notes. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. I thought this was really fascinating. It's like the river of forgetfulness. It sounds like finding an old chest in someone's attic with all these notes and maps and drawings and descriptions of going to a place you cannot remember. This sample, from the song's second verse, demonstrates the string arrangement and irregular rhythm.

I actually filed a complaint with my landlord during the time the MES was occuring. I was convinced that the lady who lived below me had gotten angry because my teething baby was keeping her up and she had decided to exact revenge lol. I was furious.

I finally became skeptical and even questioned my own sanity when the rest of the building told me they had not heard a thing. So I typed a key phrase into trusty google and low and behold up popped your site. I find your explanation and others experience s fascinating. What an amazing slight of hand on the part of our mind.
Anyway thought you might be able to shed some light on MES and medications used to treat migraines. I have no doubt that multiple factors played a part in my personal experience but thought that I may be able to add a medication I was taking at the time to the list. Thanks, Katie. It ranges from choirs, to singers, big band, country, symphony, Gregorian chants, something like the TV on in the other room or yes, the typical radio broadcast.
Sometimes I recognize the music and sometimes I do not.
The Great Gatsby, by F. Scott Fitzgerald
For instance, my powder room ceiling fan has clearly played the theme song to Jeopardy. I have a noise generating machine which helps drown out the noise of cars going past etc so I can sleep. From time to time, I will hear what sounds like people talking, or musical notes, or tones that sound like a mobile phone message going…. My wife also hears weird things as well.
Good to find out WHY we hear these things from our white noise generator and that we are not going crazy as we get older! My jet airliner cd of white noise must be on a loop. It used to be so relaxing, now the same darn verse of a New Oreleans jazz song keeps repeating. Hello, my name is David. Even with getting older i can still hear VERY well. It always sounds like a radio talk show.. The central air is running… the ceiling fan is running.. Traffic is going by.. But your article really helped me more understand what was going on and how my body is dealing with my environment.
Thank You.! I am going to share with you my experience in case it might help prevent someone from becoming worse. I recently accepted that I have paranoid schizophrenia with bipolar mania. I previously considered the conversations I had with myself as being healthy.
I do not hear voices from other people and never have. I lately realized with MES hitting me this year that these conversations I am having with myself are causing a tremendous amount of anxiety.

Tinnitus has suddenly become extremely loud in the past month especially when I wake up in the morning. I have since then been searching the Internet for some answers and treatment. I always talk to myself constantly when I am alone. I am also single. Sometimes I can have a fight with myself and not talk for a few days. These silent days were harmless at home since there is no constant external noise. I then started taking road trips where I would drive more than 10 hrs a day.
I had a fight with myself during one of these road trip and remained silent for 10 hrs. Somehow the constant background noise from the cheap rental car gave birth to MES.

The first MES song started playing over and over again. I thought it was brain damage due to the repetition. I do not play music when I am driving since schizophrenia provides the entertainment. I had no idea what caused the song to play and thought it would go away with some rest. Suddenly other songs started playing when triggered by thoughts of certain words.
The word Happy automatically induces the song Happy Birthday to play.
A few months later I did the same thing again. I had a fight with myself and went silent on another road trip. The constant background noise in the car once again gave birth to a new repetitive song.
