Jonny Greenwood - Bodysong

01. Moon trills
02. Moon mall
03. Trench
04. Iron swallow
05. Clockwork tin soldiers
06. Convergence
07. Nudnik headache
08. Peartree
09. Splitter
10. Bode Radio - Glass light - Broken hearts
11. 24 hour charleston
12. Milky drops from heaven
13. Tehellet

First solo album by Radiohead's guitarist Jon Greenwood As a soundtrack for Simon Pummel's 2003 movie 'Bodysong'.

It's one of the best albums that i have ever listened to and I like it more than (being a radiohead fan) any radiohead album. It features 13 tracks, and various styles.. from quiet piano ballads (moon trills), string quartets (iron swallow, bode radio, tehellet), chaotic percussion (convergence, trench, splitter) , guitars (24 hour charleston) electronica and trippy stuff in general (clockwork tin soldiers, nudnik headache, peartree, moon mall) to orchestrated climax (tehellet) and free jazz (splitter, milky drops from heaven)... but it is yet, quite easy to the ears. short songs, different styles, perfect album. and tehellet is one of the best closing tracks ever.

id consider it to be an 'hybrid' album in quality of noises, styles and instruments. You can find quite a wide brand of sounds here: guitars, banjo, piano, organs, computers, synthetizers, ondes, horn sections, trumpets and trombones, bass and double bass, drum sets, xylophones, tape noises, electronic loops, violins, string quartets, etc

Coming from a non-Radiohead fan, this is quite cool.

Wow, awesome pick, sandbag. But WHY is everyone using the "essentials" tag? Shark-biters.

but seriously, thanks for this. Awesome album, great pick.

well 'essentials' makes it more... personal I guess.

I like these types of threads really, opens up discussion that most of the other threads in this section don't have.

Yeah, I know. I was just saying that I called mine NR Essentials, and then (ahem) someone made Derek's Essentials (wink).

that is a good cd. i specifically remember the day i bought it. i was working at a record store in key west and it was the day it was released. after i got off me and a buddy went home and dropped acid and bumped said cd. it was awesome. and scary. that's the last tiem i dropped acid and i probably won't be doing it again anytime soon. i'm getting too lod for that shit.

I never could get into this one. I'll have to listen to it through a few more times I think.

But I'm pretty sure they used Convergence on There Will Be Blood, when the rig burns down. I haven't looked into it, but I would bet money on it. It was the best scene in the movie.

An "Essential" mix to say the least.

Now that, I'm down with. "I'm Still in Love" and "Right Road to Dubland" are two of the best reggae songs I've ever heard. I wasn't expecting it to be good at all, either, but it's ace.

And the Skywalker track. Especially with the right substances.
