Rolling Stone described the final track as a 'dread-soaked hymn of emotional defeat', likening it to Radiohead finales such as 'Motion Picture Soundtrack' from Kid A (2000).


Yorke has long been an admirer of Richard D. James (Aphex Twin), and previously said in a Dazed & Confused interview 'Aphex opened up another world that didn't involve my fucking electric guitar, and I was just so jealous of that whole crew. They were off on their own planet,'. Nose Grows Some is the closest Yorke has come to being in 'that whole crew,' unifying Radiohead's trademark sound with Aphex Twin's forward-thinking electronic music. This track could pass for Yorke singing alongside one of the mellower tracks of Aphex's Selected Ambient Works 85-92.
