Radiohead Discussion

Discuss. I'll start.

I think OK Computer IS there best work, but not by as long of a shot as lots of people try to think. The Bends and even Kid A (I think Kid A is better then Amnesiac and Hail to the Thief) are extremely close behind. And I still can't decide which song is more beautiful "How to Disappear Completely" or "Bullet Proof [I Wish I Was]".

    I like different albums more on different days, depends on my mood. OK Computer is the best though in my mind. But I love the live "I might be wrong" EP. Live versions of songs Like Spinning Plates and True Love Waits are awesome.

    Everytime I listen to "Let Down" on OK Computer, I get the chills, no joke. It's just that powerful to me for some reason. Really just an awesome piece of music.

    Re: Radiohead Discussion

    I used to be a radiohead-head...like hardcore. But for some reason i never got into the bends and especially pablo honey. OK computer is excellent, Kid A and Amnesiac are Amazing, and Hail to the Theif is excellent aswell.
    Damm those guys a good live. Thom York is a genious. And they know how to jam.

    I'm not really big into their online community at all, but does anyone know of any rumours, if any, of a North American tour anytime soon?

    I noticed that they have a DVD of a show from 1995 for sale over at w.a.s.t.e I never knew about. Guess it's a european release. Has anyone ever seen it? Think it's worth ordering?

    I didn't know about that until now. I wish I could see the setlist, from what I can see it looks like it's a little heavy on PH tracks (their only release at the time of the show) which is their uh...least...best...album. Still, the second track is Bones, which is one of my favorites.

    I'd order it in a hearbeat, put it prob. wouldn't work in an American DVD player.

    Re: Radiohead Discussion

    Here's the info from Greenplastic (a fansite)...

    ASTORIA LONDON LIVE
    filmed at London's Astoria on May 27, 1995
    68 Minutes running time
    You/Bones/Ripcord/Black Star/Creep/The Bends/My Iron Lung/Prove Yourself/Maquiladora/Vegetable/Fake Plastic Trees/Just/Stop Whispering/Anyone Can Play Guitar/Street Spirit (fade out)/Pop is Dead/Blow Out

    You don't think it would work over here? I've never heard anything like that before. Interesting.

    Edit: It does say it's only in PAL format. That sucks, I'm not really sure what that means but it does not appear to be US friendly. That set looks awesome, I have some bootleg copies of shows like that and they really rock out those songs live.

    Re: Radiohead Discussion

    I've fallen in love with Radiohead over the last year. They are my favorite band, and I really love especially the transformation they've made from premier rock band, to electronic, to a little something inbetween each now.

    You guys should check out www.cuttooth.com for some shows unless you already have.

    My favorite album is Kid A...I love the fact that its pretty much almost all a medley. The Ideoteque->Morning Bell segue is probably my fave.

    I think at the moment though that Sit Down, Stand Up is as good as it gets.

    I'll drown my beliefs
    To have you be in peace
    I'll dress like your niece
    To wash your swollen feet

    Just don't leave, don't leave

    And true love waits
    In haunted attics
    And true love wins
    On lollipops and crisps

    Just don't leave, don't leave

    I'm not living
    I'm just killing time
    Your tiny hands
    Your crazy kiss and smile

    Just lonely, lonely..
    Just lonely, lonely..

    best band in the world, bands are still catching up with the bends and Radiohead continuously is light years ahead of the rest. I think they are one of the few bands that continuosly improves album by album so I dont think OKC is the best album. Maybe to the mainstream it is

    It has the Fog download in addition to other b sides.

    Thanks again.

    I'm a fan of The Bends and Pablo Honey. My least favorite (if I had to pick) is probably amnesiac. High and Dry is my song by far though.

    Amnesiac isn't that strong at all. You have You + Whose Army and I Might Be Wrong, and none of the other tracks on the album are as solid as those two. Life in a Glass House is decent. Morning Bell pales in comparison to the Kid A version. Like Spinning Plates is nothing great on album, but it does translate into something amazing on the piano in concert.
