and every listen it feels better than the previous time.
contender for most underrated Radiohead song
And they've recorded a lot of beautiful songs.
It used to be the one song on OK Computer I'd skip regularly. A few years ago I decided to listen to the whole album on headphones with my eyes closed, and it suddenly made sense. I'm scared of listening to it too often in case I ruin it though, it's a 'once every few months' type record now.
it was my fave from the moment i heard it
The only one I consider skipping.
and I burst into tears during No Surprises at 9am, I really GOT it.
Thankfully I've moved on to better things, but still, what a beautiful piece of work.
in case I ruin it through overfamiliarity. That said, it's been early 13 years and it's still amazing to my ears.
every time i want to listen to it, i'm like 'nah it'll be a let down, it's too familiar now' but this weekend - perfect
I rarely listen to them these days (except about once a year when I go back through an obsessive 'listen to everything they've done' phase), but every time I'm surprised that nothing they've done is dulled through familiarity. Even Kid A, which is probably my most listened to album of all time.
I listened to OK Comp for the first time in literally 2 years. And I was stunned by how dull it suddenly seemed. I'd always rated it, but now it doesn't do much for me at all.
..I think all that says is that I should listen to the album even more, jah?
If that's the best album of the 90s and nothing better has come out in the 00s that means it's the best album of the last 20 years, right?
that blows me away every time I listen to it. Right from the first note of Airbag to the very end of The Tourist.
There's not a wasted note anywhere in there.
I never really liked it all that much in the first place but today it made me think of Smashing Pumpkins songs. I won't be going back.
...and of course, I think it has a special relationship with folks like me in their mid twenties to early thirties - it just sign posts a generation and that's something very rare indeed. I don't think 'Kid A' has the same impact beyond Radiohead fans, though that is obviously superb too.
I love it when a new Radiohead album is on the way - the gossip and anticipation created by lots of people like myself, who've grown up with this band, feels like a family get together.
'The Bends' is the only one which no longer has the impact it did when I was halfling It's still a good album but it pales in comparisson to the later stuff. I also tend to enjoy 'Pablo Honey' more these days, which might seem bizarre to some.
Hell, I even hale HTTT and Amnesiac so I'm a total fan boy, embarassingly.
its an amazing album,every track is incredible.lately 'climbing up the walls' has been my favourtite.
