Radiohead Discussion Thread

Okay. It looks like there probably won't be a new Radiohead album until at least next spring. Regardless, if we can have discussion threads for Nine Inch Nails and Tool, I think that there is probably room for a Radiohead thread. Also, just for fun, let's throw in a new poll. (Yes, I know we've done it before.)

My rankings of their albums to date:

1. OK Computer
2. The Bends
3. Kid A
4. Hail to the Thief
5. Amnesiac
6. Pablo Honey

Some news:

from http://www.pitchforkmedia.com

Thom Yorke Reveals New Radiohead Album Details!

Rob Kleckner reports:
Bands like Radiohead can leak little droplets of information about coming albums over the course of a year. Tantalizing us with what's in store, teasing us with cryptic quotes, and generally getting us all riled up, so that when the album finally drops, all of those droplets have whet our appetites such that we must have the album.

Well, Thommy Boy has given NME.com a few golden nuggets of info about the band's seventh album, which is not due until next spring at the earliest. Yorke feels that the recording process this time around finds the band shifting gears, much like they did in the post-OK Computer sessions that eventually led to Kid A and Amnesiac.

"It's going well," Yorke said of the work so far. "It's a bit like Kid A-- we're going through a period of change. But that's good. We'll get there."

That's it; that's all Yorke said about the album. But that's all he has to say. This doesn't necessarily mean that the album will sound like Kid A, but that it will be a big step forward for the band. It's good to see a group working so hard to create something different, unlike certain other English groups, who are content to stick their platinum-selling formulas. But we're not naming any names...cough cough...COLDPLAY! Oh weird, what a strange sneeze!

Anyway, several months ago Yorke and guitarist Jonny Greenwood performed some new material with the London Sinfonietta, where they debuted "Arpeggi". More recently, Yorke performed "House of Cards" during an all-night vigil for the Global Week of Action in support of Trade Justice. Other song titles mentioned by NME.com include "Glass Flowers" and "Reckoner".

You can find a link to a video of the Trade Justice performance below, but we're guessing there's some serious traffic over there. Or at least now there will be. Sorry.

Best band still making music right now.

OK Computer has been at the top of my favorite albums list since its release.

I'd rank the albums this way:
1. OK Computer
2. Kid A

(big dropoff)

3. The Bends
4. Hail to the Thief
5. Amnesiac

(gigantic dropoff)
6. Pablo Honey


The new songs (Arpeggi, House of Cards, Last Flowers till the Hospital) are pretty good, with Arpeggi being the best of the lot. I'm still waiting to hear a studio version of Big Ideas (would make for a great album closer).

Radiohead is one of my top 5 favorite bands but I must say Pablo Honey is disgusting. Awful, awful debut save for 4 songs (You, Creep, Lurgee, Blow Out).

Itch is a better b-side cd than Airbag/How am I driving or My Iron Lung EP? No way, duuuuuuuuuuude.

You do realize that everyone doesn't have to have the same opinion as you, right?

Not really . . . My Radiohead desert island choice would be The Bends.

OK Computer
Kid A
(solely based on the strength of "National Anthem", similarity to Primal Scream's song be damned)
The Bends
Amnesiac
Hail to the Thief
(almost all their singles and EPs)
Pablo Honey[/b]

I've listened to Pablo Honey maybe five times in the last five years. MAYBE.

Bends: Edges out OK Computer on the sheer strength of its songs.
OK Computer: Songs slightly < Bends, but a more coherent album

Big dropoff...

Pablo Honey: Mostly forgettable, but some strong singles
Kid A: Starting to get strange, but still musical

Grand Canyon dropoff...

Amnesiac and Hail to the Thief: Completely, unlistenably, hopelessly, pointlessly fucking weird.

Favorite song: Killer Cars

actually, just the word pointless is a more than suitable word to describe Amnesiac and Hail to the Thief.

Actually, it looks like we agree on something else.

I've been trying to find the studio version of this for years.
