As an insight to a world within a world of black American music, Personal Space elicits interest. As a compilation, it fails to sustain it very long.
Been LOVING this recently - a really effective mood/period piece, effortlessly cool.
You don't, actually. Radiohead have done plenty wrong in my book. But of course, you don't know that, because we've never met, or spoken about Radiohead.
Good to come back to a review to see people disagree with it. Glad people are getting something out of the album. That said, doubtful any of the naysayers have listened to this record as often as I had by the time this review was written. My opinion, and let's face it, in essence that's all reviews are, opinion backed up by analysis and expression, was that this album wouldn't stand up to long term plays. The highlights are great, but there is a lot of filler on this record. That's still my position, it hasn't belatedly set my world on fire.
Yes, I do like Wild Flag, and that record is excellent. But I've listened to and written about all kinds of music over the last twenty years, and I believe in what I write. If you think that I'm wrong because I'm in error, fine. But if you think that because I like one thing that you dislike, or you'd like to stereotype me as a Weezer shade wearing, man bag toting Radiohead fanboy, frankly, you need to pull your shit together.
