Very clever, well done. Do you see what they've done there?!!!
Is what they give it then. Fair.
I'm not sure about House of Cards being the weak link though.
I look forward to that song most when I play it.
You're just wrong.
is this bastard coming out on CD?
anyone else decided that in rainbows is pretty boring and sounds like a slightly anal massive attack? nothing as rocking or dancable as the best bits on HTTT, and not as cohesive or beatiful as kid a
It lacks any coherent vision and seems a mish mash of various bits and bobs they've played with before.
And, for the first time, I'm wondering what Thom Yorke is singing so sadly about, and wishing he would. You know. Stop moaning.
with kid a is that it completely lacks cohesion.
I think this new record is beautiful. They've had more success playing with textures than on any previous record and still managed to add those textures to great songs. albeit almost entirely downtempo ones.
I think it's the least immediate of any radiohead albums and by no means the best. there are genuinely no 'hits' on there which there always have been before. But I think it's still brilliant.
youre a silly
Don't entirely agree, but it's still a fantastic review.
it's their best since Kid A.
And I'm prepared to use a word I would've previously bawlked at:
I think it's lush
Lush were great.
Radiohead aren't !
Brilliant, yeah, but nowhere near there best. It's nice to see some genuine emotion from Yorke though. The sentiments displayed on Videotape are pretty heartbreaking.
It's warm, concise and subtle where Thief was cold, rambling and jaggedy. There are no hits on it, for sure, it's just an excellent album; like the review says, it doesn't sound like they're shoe-horning electronica into it anymore, it's integral and feels right. And what are you talking about Mr. Brainlove? They're mostly love songs. I've waited for some proper Radiohead love songs since the Bends.
and it's mostly spot on. It's funny they decided to play with it, too... like DiS did....
Anyway, at first I thought it was totally brilliant and I've since slightly come off that as I don't feel all that compelled to play it again (for the 8 or 9th time).
It does lack a National Anthem/Electioneering type killer track, too. But as a whole its pretty fecking great.
The release date thing was especially well worded.
I had Kid A on in the car last night and realised that it is a lot better but In Rainbows is still a very good album after a week's listening.
