Coincidence?

I saw this on Modern Age and thought it was interesting....

Have you heard of this? My friend Josh just sent me this link to a discussion board talking about how if you sync up certain songs on “Kid A” with one copy delayed for 17 seconds you get a completely new song/album experience that some fans claim Thom Yorke has said is “intentional”. Some have found that certain songs work best with delays of 19 and 20 seconds.

Do you think this really is the work of some madcap plan, or is it just a happy coincidence courtesy of round robin style arrangements?

Listen for yourself:

DOWNLOAD/LISTEN: “Kid A” by Radiohead (two copy sync)
