The music of Radiohead, or How I Learned To Stop Worrying And Love Prog Rock

Ask your average man in the street what the Beatles best album is, and the will reflexively answer Sgt Pepper. Proper Beatles fans will scoff, because we all know it's Abbey Road.

Similarly, ask what Radiohead's best album is and yer man in the street will either demand to know why you're asking him all these questions about bands?, or answer OK Computer.

He's wrong again of course, It's Kid A.

This 'Radiohead' of which you speak, a rock and rolling band, are they?

That just reminded me of the excellent Our Kid Eh.

Rock and whinge

adds Frankie's name to the list...

FrankieTeardrop - 08 Sep 2021 13:57:45 (#6 of 71)

I can't get past his voice - a shame, as I know they're supposed to be amazing from a musical and production point of view

donttellhimpike - 08 Sep 2021 15:02:48 (#7 of 71)

I can see how his voice could be an issue but on a song like Fake Plastic Trees it's just sublime.

FrankieTeardrop - 08 Sep 2021 14:12:48 (#8 of 71)

I think the revolting self-pity of their debut single put me off listening to anything else by them as well. However, I will try the song you recommend and see what happens.

Hide the razor blades first.

FrankieTeardrop - 08 Sep 2021 14:17:58 (#10 of 71)

Heh

Not for me, pike, however I appreciate you recommending it.

donttellhimpike - 08 Sep 2021 15:20:05 (#11 of 71)

I want to comment "I despar" but you'll just ask if I'm currently listening to them?

Macpaddy - 08 Sep 2021 15:21:28 (#12 of 71)

I can see why they'd have a following.

tasselhoff - 08 Sep 2021 15:29:47 (#13 of 71)

OK Computer really hit me at the right time. It's great.

I'd just assume you were

Macpaddy - 08 Sep 2021 15:31:41 (#15 of 71)

So their stuff is assisted suicidal, is it?

FrankieTeardrop - 08 Sep 2021 14:35:13 (#16 of 71)

Whereas I find the band Suicide immensely uplifting. Well, not uplifting*, but they give me tingles up the back of my neck whenever I hear them.

*Frankie Teardrop is a particularly unsettling song, but in a good, non-whingy way

nemo75 - 08 Sep 2021 15:38:07 (#17 of 71)

It really is amazing.

HouseOfLametta - 08 Sep 2021 15:45:02 (#18 of 71)

The correct answer is, of course, The Bends.

(And Revolver)

FrankieTeardrop - 08 Sep 2021 14:45:05 (#19 of 71)

I wish I could love it... feels like I'm missing out

HouseOfLametta - 08 Sep 2021 15:53:05 (#20 of 71)

You should write a song about it.

Or listen to Jonny's guitar on Creep.
