While everyone sings Gaga's praises I feel like I'm taking crazy pills, I can't understand it.
Pull yourself together man, please!
Although it may be necessary to plut.
Some seriously smart and interesting guys. Totally on point about 'irony', too.
But on that note, why no Drowned in Birmingham yet?
If it was effortless it would be depressing how consistent they are!
I don't know much about white balance and lenses and that shenanigans, but the video looks to me to be very stylistically inconsistent. Shame, I like the song.
But somewhere along the line that song and video became really moving. Fair play.
But Gaga as a persona is just unbearable, in this video more than ever.
Top score for Phoenix.
Stylistically I mean. Other than that it's bordering on freaky.
It looks quality as a vinyl.
Damn you Thom! What did the UK do wrong?
I can't agree with it being the best in the country (although maybe all the better ones have closed down now), but I bought countless good records from the place when I was a teen.
Rob Laban, where you at? You reading this?
So stoked about this.
When the band started, I'm sure Matt Bellamy never thought 'in a few years time I will be standing on a giant, glowing plinth, dressed like an absolute berk in front of thousands'. Or maybe he did, maybe that's the knack to it all - foresight.
They've now claimed the whole thing was an intentional joke, on their myspace blog:
"Matt naturally thought it would be interesting to pretend that [Radiohead] wrote a song about the celebrated American composer with a similar sounding name, hence his joking in the interview about Radiohead composing a song with something like 48 notes to an octave"
Errr right guys.
Last month. Their recordings are always a bit of a letdown compared to live in my opinion. Still, I like it.
That last video. Hello Anson Rooms.
I love Jim's kitchen-sink lyrics and the fact he's funny as hell on stage, but I think generally a distant untouchability is valued over honesty on a stage. There should be space to appreciate both.
Anyway I will be buying this because they need the money.
Taking the lyrics apart. It's about time we pulled up pop-bands on the sheer banality of what they have to say. Good review.
'Glass' is amazing, and I'm stoked about collaborating with Yeasayer.
After the first chorus when Tim screams. Freakin sweet.
Stoked about this new record!
