It seems as though KoL is going to be the album this year that is fashionable to dismiss or despise. For example, Spin does not have it among the top twenty-five albums of 2011, but things like Born This Way and the Smith Westerns are on the list. I like Dye It Blonde, and it certainly is catchy and energetic, but it is also repetitive and highly derivative. I just don't see how that is considered superior to a subtle, variegated album like KoL. Why I care at all about this, I do not know.

Don't get me wrong, Born This Way is fun pop music, and I love "Marry The Night"...but album-of-the-year material? Over Radiohead? Nope.

I listened to it again yesterday... it's fairly high up on my list of albums this year, but I don't love it all that much. Would have struggled to slip into my top ten from last year. Love Separator, Give up the Ghost, Codex, Bloom and Lotus Flower though.

Give up the Ghost is a lovely song, and so is Codex. Morning Mr Magpie is alright too. For the album as a whole, 'are you fucking kidding me' would summarise my reaction, and I don't care who it's being compared with.

That said, Radiohead clearly don't care at this point. TKOL isn't really an album as such. It's a bunch of tracks that got released in between Harry Patch/These Are My Twisted Words and The Butcher/Supercollider/The Staircase.

I won't fault them for productivity.

6 years actually. If that's necessary, why hasn't the random thread been closed? Whole lotta talk about bands mentioned in other threads there.

Mods probably saw it as an unnecessary bump given there was already a Radiohead thread

Again, there are counless new threads made for bands who already have threads that never get closed, so I still don't understand the need. That thread was not a Radiohead discussion thread. I guess banned members should never be named. Anyways, I'm just bugged because it was a 6 year old thread that was one of the much more unique threads to have been in this place. I was happy to see it bumped, even though most of the original posts have had their pictures long since brought down. Brought back a lot of fun memories.

there's a great big sook when a band is discussed in the random thread when said band already has a dedicated thread when it suits, but when a thread with no posts since 2009 gets closed, you'll complain as well?

what do you want anyway?

no doubt this post will be torn to shreds for whatever reason you've got, but good for you.

I didn't know what the thread was... seems like a fun idea.
