Subterranean and Letdown are the weak-points. "Fitter Happier" is dated. "Electioneering" I've always loved.

And yes, the "Morning Bell" rehash is shit compared to the original, BUT that album is fucking awwweesome. Anyway, as "over-rated" as Radiohead are, I love most of their records, and have for a long time.

KID A is up there. I would have said KID A until AMNESIAC came along. I just think AMESIAC takes the best ideas from KID and OK COMPUTER and perfects the combo.

I just think the best parts of Kid A (Everything, Disappear, Treefingers!, Optimistic, Morning Bell, Idiotheque) and Amnesiac (Packt, Pyramid, Pulk/, Wrong, Knives, Bears, Spinning Plates) could have been combined to create one of the best albums ever. I know someone will say "THAT WOULD RUIN THE FLOW" but something I've noticed about Radiohead is that their albums all have pretty weird flows. I don't think the fuzzy bass/horn freakout of The National Anthem fits with any of Kid A at all. All that really unifies their albums are some eerie, haunting melodies and bizarre noises that come from nowhere.

Anyway, I just can't get over how bad In Rainbows is/was. I do find it funny how people never talk about it anymore... even to hardcore Radiohead fans, it hasn't aged well. It's just embarassingly bad. Anyone else think the riff in Bodysnatchers sounds like a Queens of the Stone Age riff? Haha..

I really enjoy this:

This one time, ICP, and Radiohead were booked for the same show somewhere, and Thom Yorke kept on trying to barge into ICP's dressing room while they were painting up. Their manager repeatedly explained to Yorke that he would have to wait until they were done painting to get in (they only like to be seen with paint, or without paint - not in the process of applying it), but Thom wouldn't listen. So ICP's manager decked Thom Yorke right on his ass.

I quite liked IN RAINBOWS actually...

but I feel you on KID A/AMNESIAC. I mean, let's be real, it was BASICALLY a double album with each disc released what? 6 months apart?

I'm listening to james bbblack shawwwww's new disc for the 5th time. And.. it's kinda disappointing.

Derek 08.24.2010 04:24 PM

What's it called? (I'm lazy).

atsonicpark 08.24.2010 04:40 PM

All is Falling.

I just deleted it.

Did you get the new Druid Perfume off of me, Derek? I'm going to up it later, for those who want it. It's VERY Beefheart-y.
