a Radiohead appreciation thread I guess. I've been listening to them a lot again recently going through my collection and rediscovering some old live shows...
discuss discuss... fav albums, least fav songs, fav live shows etc etc
Just came across a live compilation I hadn't seen before, http://www.amazon.com/The-Best-Radiohead/dp/B0017KP944/ref=ntt_mus_dp_dpt_9 yeeeah I kinda view a lot of these tracks as some of my least favourite to be honest, if I were to make a compilation as an introduction to the band it would look a little different :P I mean no surprises and high and dry.. really? xP
current fav albums:
The King of Limbs
Hail To The Thief
As much as I love Ok Computer I kinda dislike (usually skip) fitter happier and no surprises.. without those then it would be in front of In Rainbows which has perfect flow, and, the basement recordings for this album is also for me up there as a career highlight. The Bends being almost perfect except for the poor production (seemingly flat atmosphere) , subpar high and dry and fake plastic trees. Also I kinda feel like street spirit isn't aging so well. People seem to consider Pablo to be their least amazing album but I love it. Stop whispering, ripcord and blow out are all breathtaking such a strong debut. Kid A, treefingers wtf and the national anthem I just find plain embarrassing akin to pop is dead. Amnesiac for so long was ahead of Kid A but I can't deny the potent atmosphere that Kid A has and I feel will always have. TKOL is still growing on me to be honest, feral is amazing and seeing the Live Basement recordings have really helped it click but yeah. And HTTT.. some of my fav songs are on here like There There (such a great live fav) and sail to the moon but it's the only Radiohead album I feel contains filler... and a lot of it _..
