Radiohead

Postby Jazz » Mon Sep 14, 2015 1:39 am

We might have a new Radiohead album before year's end. According to Phil Selway the new album could be finished this fall.

Hope Fullstop is on the upcoming album.

Same here. They actually premiered Ful Stop live the one time that I got to see Radiohead live (thus far) in a suburb of Chicago in 2012!

Haha you said that because the king of limbs sounded more of a thom yorke album?

I got that same impression after the first time i heard that album. But that album has grown a lot on me recently. The live versions are much better though.

Yes, exactly... I still claim it, but I have heard the Live in the Basement is much better... and oddly enough, I like from Codex on, so the last 3 songs, which are the most Yorke solo out of the bunch. Also, most of the songs after have still sounded like a Yorke solo... except Fulstop... that's sounding pretty good.

I honestly just want some banging Greenwood guitar solos... we really haven't had one since HTTT, which is 12+ years!

I love their In Rainbows album. It's a bonafide masterpiece, which is a considerable statement when you look at the rest of their catalogue. All I Need is one of the most beautiful songs they've done.
Has anyone ever done that thing with In Rainbows and OK Computer where you alternate the tracks? It's called '0110' or something. It certainly flows quite well as a whole.

After that album, Hail to the Thief is probably my favourite. However it's so oppressively gloomy I don't find occasion to listen to it very often, haha.

So Radiohead has learned to disappear completely... everyone's assuming LP9 is about to drop. It's kinda fun reading all of the threads and comments on their subreddit.

Honestly, Burn the Witch is okay. Sorta more of the same, where it seems like it's the Thom and Jonny show.

Let me put first that I've never been a Radiohead-fan. This song is okay. People are running out of superlatives for it, but I think that's a bit too much.

Not a bad song but what it feels weird is that Radiohead sounded a lot like those supposedly Alternative bands that are on today's radio.

This new Radiohead album changed my expectation on the band after i was disappointed with Spectre and Burn The Witch. The extra strings they added are amazing.

I'm glad Fulstop and Identikit made it to the album. They sound a lil bit slower than the live versions but they are still pretty good. I was very surprised to see True Love Waits as the ending song and the way how they changed that song reminded me a lot of Videotape.

A Moon Shaped Pool is definitely better than the king of limbs imo.

These upcoming shows feels like they will be a one of a kind live show. Hope to get a ticket.

The tracklist is in alphabetical order. That's probably why it is the last one.

I've tried and tried to get into Radiohead, but just can't. Thom Yorke is easily my least favorite singer out there.

I'm loving the new album. It's nice and dark, slow, and brooding.

Interesting. Which albums/songs have you tried?

@Comatose

Same for me. I listened to almost any Radiohead album in full, except Pablo Honey, the new one and the one after Kid A (can't remember the title, too lazy to Google). It's mostly his voice that puts me off.

I owned The Bends at one point, and a roommate had In Rainbows. I've heard almost all of their singles.

Huh, I could see how his voice might be a little irritating on the Bends, as it's almost Travis/U2-esque... I know, Scottish/Irish blasphemy of UK... just has that kinda whiny British voice, but for the latter stuff, I'm a little shocked. Like in How to Disappear Completely... one of my absolute favorite songs by them... I think his voice is just on point.
