It's also about an enormous fear of being trapped.

Slight tangent: My favorite bit of the "Super Mario Bros. frustration" video is the guy saying "This is worse than youtube comments." I throw that around when I find myself in deplorable circumstances, like should friends decide to eat at TGIFriday's or Applebee's and play Nickelback's greatest hits on the way there.

If you are willing and have the time, give them another listen but im loathe to advise repeated listenings when it may just be that it isnt a band you are ever going to like.

Amnesiac is their weirdest one yet - completely offputting and full of "songs" that seem purposely unfinished, like a work of modern art that is just a bunch of random colors thrown against a canvas. It may look pretty, it may not, it may interest certain people, it may bore others.

This is a lovely little thread designed for Lovers and Haters of Radiohead to discuss why they love and/or hate the biggest band in the world.
Of course, the haters are wrong, and their opinions are factually incorrect, but don't let that stop a frank and honest discussion from developing.
What I found so delightful about Radiohead's peak was the fact that Street Spirit (Fade Out), the last track on The Bends, talks about how "this machine cannot communicate" and shows a general distrust for the inhumanity and fallibility of machinery. This sentiment is echoed throughout pretty much the entirety of OK Computer. But what is so delightful is that, despite all the musings on disequilibrium/dystopian visions/everything falling apart, Kid A begins with the unifying song Everything in its Right Place, so Kid A acts as the denouement to the Orwellian nightmare that was OK Computer, foreshadowed by the Bends. It offers me a sort of catharsis.

As a musician I could throw so much theory on the table that would show mathematically and musically why radiohead's music truly is ingenious.. if I had more than 400 characters :) radiohead's amazing!!! It's a shame people don't understand music enough to realise that. Maybe someday they will :)

YOU SHUT YOUR MOUTH, BROAD! You don't know ANYTHING about music if you think Radiohead and their "Creepy Widow" song is better than Mike & The Mechanics (aka "The Living Years")
...why don't you go back to the KITCHEN and bake some cookies and run the kids to soccer practice WHERE YOU BELONG WOMAN!
How many good FEMALE musicians have their ever been? TWO, AND THAT'S IT (Tiffany and Joan Jett) oooo big deal TWO.
Why don't you go have Shark Week and complain about men?

I don't... really think that sounds great. Maybe thom yorke should stick to fronting radiohead instead of doing a solo project.
Rub my face in it, why don't you? I really wanted to go to the Latitude festival this year, after listening to how much sheer brilliance I heard on Radio 3 last year, and I didn't even know Thom Yorke was playing until a few weeks ago. Not going to Latitude has been my biggest and only regret this year. Le sigh.Dream wrote:Oh look! It's Harrowdown Hill... from the Latitude festival.
