Is Radiohead no longer significant?
« on: June 19, 2007, 01:49:34 PM »
Seriously, what happened to this band?  At the turn of the century, Radiohead had just released The Bends, OK Computer, and finally Kid A.  Their last two releases, while having their moments, were not as good as any of those three, and they haven't released an album in more than four years.  Last year Thom Yorke released a kind of interesting solo effort, and the band has been talking about an upcoming album for two years now, but they keep pushing the date back.  Meanwhile, bands like the Arcade Fire and Spoon have captured the fans Radiohead once counted as their own (see the new Spoon song, "The Underdog").  Anyway, I'm worried.

The appropriateness of Perpetua would probably depend on the tone of the writing.  When I used it, I (half playfully) thought the extra space made the words sort of resonate.

You were listening to Britney Spears at the time I gather.

Cream actually. Classic Rock, Blues and the occasional Funk are my musical preference.

i think many non-radiohead fans just haven't heard the right song for them. i recommend "no surprises," "stop whispering," and "fake plastic trees."

i don't want to think that their best days are behind them.

Cream actually blows. If you're going to list classic rock at least list something good.

And if all you can list is classic rock, blues, and the occasional funk, you don't really like music enough to comment or you're too close minded for this thread.
Happy colored marbles that are rolling in my head
I put 'em back in the jacket of the one I love
Carry that velvet sack full of pretty colored marbles
And I'll ask you for 'em back, when I'm ready and done

Absolutely, I'm horribly closeminded. Radiohead rocks. OMG WHERE DID I GO WRONG!

To continue ganging up on poor CL, any appreciator of rock music would certainly see the talent and awesomeness of Radiohead in songs like Just, Climbing up The Walls, etc, some of Radiohead's "harder" stuff.  I think a lot of people have only heard Creep on the radio and thought Radiohead was just one of those one-hit-wonder British bands.

Dude, Creep is probably the only Radiohead song I find bearable.
