Few good tunes, nothing I can get terribly excited about. Am I missing something?
Welcome back merepsuedebagheadman or whatever his name was..
Then listen to OK Computer.
Then Kid A.
I've spent my whole life hating them until I heard them in that order.
many many years ago now, but then everything else after just seemed a bit shit, and the continued praise heaped on them just makes me resent them and I barely listen to them at all now.
I never liked those albums much, but after listening to RH albums in order (apart from Pablo Honey) their 2000s stuff makes a lot more sense to me, although I guess my appreciation could be partly down to emotional atttachment. I think Hail to the Thief is pretty underrated and contains quite a lot of their best work (2+2=5, A Wolf at the Door, Where I End and You Begin). It has a mix of 10s and 7s (out of 10), whereas In Rainbows is a mix of 8s and 9s.
please have a long hard think about your life
It's a shame he started fooling around with Hollywood actresses and doing duets with Rihanna.
Or something like that. I didn't put it there. Bit worried he's a virus.
That's what you're missing.
They forgot to mix them into Kid A (hence the title), so they released an album of the drums later on. Play both at once, Zaireeka-style, for the full effect.
suggest Amnesiac would be called Kid B prior to its release.
Something more contemporary is coming up pronto.
