    In Rainbows &
    OK Computer

    I saw this originally on digg

    check it out:

    ...we have come to believe that OK Computer and In Rainbows were meant to complement each other. During the writing and recording process of OK Computer, Radiohead used the working title of Zeros and Ones. If OK Computer is represented by 01, and In Rainbows is represented by 10, then we have 01 and 10. In binary code 01 and 10 complement each other.

    Consider that In Rainbows was meant to complement OK Computer, musically, lyrically, and in structure. We found that the two albums can be knit together beautifully. By combining the tracks to form one playlist, 01 and 10, we have a remarkable listening experience. The transitions between the songs are astounding, and it appears that this was done purposefully.

    Some people live for this kind of stuff and might just think they found some kind of structure... Even if there is absolutely nothing to this, it's still a pretty cool playlist and it gave me a new appreciation of OK Computer (which I already held quite highly).
