see down is the new up and fast track
Yeah I know, at times they do.
Especially now with In Rainbows and such.
when what is being expressed is a subjective opinion. In my opinion you are wrong, but I can't prove it.
that came out this year.
radiohead copy other bands from time to time, see karma police, and (i think ) 'Seexie Sadie' or whatever it's called by the Beatles, so i don't know why they shouldn't also be compared in this instance to Portishead.
i happen to believe that both are excellent bands, as i'm sure both bands in question think of the other, (see Radioheads recent cover of 'The Rip' from Portisheads last album.
don't get annoyed by small things, it makes you seem silly.
they've both got 'head' in their names.
I would rate Dummy better than mediocre, in fact I think it's a classic. But I haven't liked either of Portishead's subsequent efforts. And although Radiohead aren't really to my taste, they're clearly very good at what they do, and have covered a lot of ground over a lot of very highly regarded records. So yeah, they're much better really aren't they?
are worth being mentioned at all. But there you go.
SOUND LIKE PORTISHEAD. and being as they were both recorded after the first two Portishead albums, that is the correct way to word it.
take this shit argument to youtube where all the other shit infantile my-band-is-better-than-your-band arguments go?
Have they totally changed their sound for the new album, then?
Down is the new up is not one i would have chosen to compare to Portishead.
Although in general i can see what you mean. The flow of a song like nude definitely.
