You know, if you don't play Stop Whispering, the first half of the album is FUCKING AMAZING.
the second half.
I just didn't have time to play it before I left.
but seriously I don't understand why PH is slagged like it is. It ain't no The Bends, I'll grant ya, but still pretty damn good, eh.
pablo honey, i like all radioheads albums including that one, its hardly shit is it? why do obcessive radiohead fans hate it so much?
dont punch me
but it's not very good either..
except for ...Play Guitar.
ARE YOU SOME KIND OF COMPLETE FUCKING DRIBBLINGLY INCOMPETENT MORON?!
YOU DON'T LIKE "ANYONE CAN PLAY GUITAR"? YOU SERIOUSLY JUST ADMITTED THAT? WHY NOT POST A PICTURE OF YOUR INCONTINENCE PANTS TO COMPLETE YOUR UTTER HUMILIATION?
than ac/dc's big balls in the cheesey rock anthems stakes.
it's kind of lame.
it has so many other great songs.
it would be amazing
The Bends > Pablo Honey > OK Computer > Everything since (which is still good).
you like pablo honey more than ok computer?!?!?
It's 'mushy' and goes on for AGES. I have the US version too, which is heavier on the strings (I think) and that's a bit better.
Every time I hear a song by Clap Your Hands, Wolf Parade, anyone with a slightly funny vocalist etc etc, I get Stop Whispering in my head. WHY GOD, WHY?!?
pop is dead stuck in your head.
I am just watching this video for the first time:
I read back in Uni that this video was shot in a 'disused swimming pool in Hornsey'. If it meant Hornsey in London then that's the one I learned to swim in. Yup.
YOU LIKE "POP IS DEAD"? YOU SERIOUSLY JUST ADMITTED THAT? WHY NOT POST A PICTURE OF YOUR INCONTINENCE PANTS TO COMPLETE YOUR UTTER HUMILIATION?
Nah, sorry. It doesn't work because Pop is Dead is quite fun whereas you objected to Anyone Can Play Guitar. MORON!
Clap your hands, wolf parade, anyone with a slightly funny vocalist etc etc, I get "Stop Whispering" in my head"
I am with you there. The opening track of CYHSY is pretty much a "Stop Whispering" cover. Am I wrong? No.
by definition that makes it amazing
Accept it! Amnesiac is really quite poor!
Well in terms of songs. There's certainly nothing very 'together' about the collection, but Pyramid Song, You and Whose Army? Packt Like Sardines and I Might Be Wrong are some of their best.
I'm clearly having one of THOSE Fridays.
I've never listened to it all the way through. I'm still sticking by my 'Radiohead should have stopped at OK Computer' thang. I can't be bothered to listen to them any more.
the new alan mcgee
pyramid song and life in a glass house are two of their most beautiful songs, also you and whose army, i might be wrong, like spinning plates and packtlikesardines are fantastic and i also love pulk, in fact the only piece i'm not to keen on is hunting bears, which i still like.
plus it is better than hail to the thief, which is also a rather good album.
but i don't think i can put it above kid a, purely because i think it's perfect.
has 'Idioteque' which is a contender for the best song of all time.
it also has 'everthing in it's right place' which is amazing and beautiful.
the rest of it is just not that special. I think it's the least good of the three recent albums. I think people like it most because it came first.
the live versions are better.
and i honestly love everything about the album. there were times when i heard amnesiac and thought it was a work of genius, (which it kinda is) but it's too lonely or something.
HTTT is too long. and the flow is a bit jittery.
the live versions are excellent, though i love hearing the propper tempo of IMBW.
i love radiohead threads
Pablo honey is the ONLY one of their albums i like.
see what i did there?
US single release of Stop Whispering. It's covered in sickly strings and uber production! You can actually hear the US label going..."right we want to release this song but it's too 'hard' let shine it up a bit so it sounds like a nice ballad to follow Creep".
Surely we all own Itch?
