Radiohead

Thought we needed a thread for these guys.

Thom's new solo album got released today, anyone else heard it? I gotta give it a solid 8.

I don't know how to download it, so I'll have to give it a miss until it gets released on CD or at least proper download (if that ever happens).

I have been listening to Radiohead a bit though... It impresses me how OK Computer and Kid A in particular just seem to gain resonance every year. When I first heard them I loved the music although the life and world they described wasn't my world. It's eerie how, with growing responsibilities at work and home and slowly getting closer to 40 than 20 (feck!), those worlds come closer (and you keep having to be on your toes not to be overwhelmed by the fact that there's very real people depending on you to keep your shit together).

Midlife crisis, here I come!

Radiohead used to be in my top tier of bands. When the Bends, OK Computer, and Kid A came out, they blew me away. But it's been diminishing returns ever since, apart from In Rainbows, which was as great as their earlier stuff. In my view, they got fat, happy, and complacent after the massive success of Computer and Kid A, disappearing up their own arses on an irreversible course of pretension. Still, I'll always be interested in what they do (wish they didn't take so many years between albums!)

I think they are a bit overrated

Their records that were around during the Britpop period seem to leave the lasting impression.

'Paranoid Android' particularly takes me back to the time when it was released.

Lift is fantastic, I hope they don't touch it much. They fucked up Morning Mr. Magpie on TKOL.

Have you guys seen Thom's early version of High and Dry with his old band in the late 80's? The band was plain awful (wtf is the drummer doing?) but still quite nice to see Thom in those days. http://www.stereogum.com/1815653/watch- ... dry/video/" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

Don't know if they are overrated, but I never managed to get into their music. I find it kind of soulless and at times boring. And I can tolerate Thom Yorke's voice in small doses. I bought OK Computer at the time because of the hype, but I can't say I play it often. Except No Suprises. I like that song.
