Agreed.

"There There" is better than anything off Kid A or Amnesiac.

They were smart to venture into U2's emotional terrain for that song. That choice gave us "There, There" and "The End Of the Beginning Of the Start Of The Final Initiation" from HTTT.

are you even talking about the right band?
You know what happens when bands become middle-aged?

You know what their truth becomes?

It isn't fishbowl existential angst. Which has been their strength. There's no time for that anymore.

Wives, growing children, aging parents and your own mid-life crises begin to dominate your mind. RH are going to be no different.

Life gets more and more complicated. The desire to simplify becomes strong. Read between the lines of the original post that quotes Yorke about the pressure. What do you think he wants to do?

Seems like simplicity is their desire. Seems like U2 is the only band that has faced anywhere near the artistic pressure and demands that are thrust upon RH, in recent times. Seems obvious that they'd find influence from the greatest statement on simplicity of our time, ATYCLB.

So if you think only one guy in that band can see the art of a song like 'Stuck' then you'd be pretty damn ignorant, but we all know that's not you.

I've just started to get into RH over the past few days and I really like their mid-'90s work and tolerate the post-2000 stuff.

Thom Yorke just sounds whiny on the recent records, is that just me?

I remember readin that Thom Yorke's favorite song off of Kid A was Idioteque, which is weird considering almost every Kid A review that had come out in the past (when the album was released) called it the throwaway and I've never really seen it listed as a favorite song (always passed over) amongst Radiohead fans (maybe too catchy).


Either way, I feel bad that Radiohead has to kowtow to their fans' wishes and avoid convention and feign innovation.

Well Malone and Martha... call yourselves the first that I've seen cop to liking Idioteque. People always talk up a song like How to Disappear Completely or National Anthem...
