Mr. Brau, I see what you're saying but I think you missed my point slightly. I am not trying to say that everyone who dislikes Radiohead's recent work would also dislike U2's recent work. I am saying that among music fans, people who think RH haven't done anything worthwhile since The Bends are the Radiohead fans equivalent of U2 fans who think that U2 haven't put out anything worthwhile since the Unforgettable Fire. Sure, not everyone fits into that mold but I have witnessed quite a few in both groups who fit that shoe exactly. I find this line of thinking to be oversimplified and rigid. Bands need to evolve over time and those that wish them to keep remaking the same album over and over again are asking that band to stop growing and become stagnant.

I know better than to think I will ever convince anyone in that camp to come over to my side of the fence but I still feel the need to state my opinion on the subject.

I totally understand bands have to change over time, and I understand all the reasons. I'm totally open to new ideas and ways of saying things, growth is part of being human. As much as I respect their bravery and curiosity as artists, I don't like their new music. I think many people confuse respecting their artistic ideals w/ liking their music.

i'm scared, confused, and wondering if I will ever like U2 more than Radiohead again.


has this happened to anyone else?
The Vanilla Ice thing never happened for me.

Outstanding point!

See, you aren't full of shit.


Calluna....is it safe to classify what is happening to Mikal as "Accute Myxomatosis?"

Fair enough but there are alot of people out there who do like the direction they are going in, myself included. It is possible to respect a musician's artistic ideals AND like their music at the same time.

And Zoney, yes I think that is a safe assumption.

I love Frank Zappa who played just about anything during his career
and I love AC/DC who have played about the same thing since 1977

I also love Aphex Twin, without whom Radiohead would never been able to produce Kid A
and I adore Will Oldham, a man who makes music that sounds as if it could have been made 60 years ago but with IMHO about the best lyrics there are

and don't get me started on Miles Davis


I still don't really get why so many people don't seem able to enjoy all of it
who cares if it's inventive or not?
who cares whether there are lyrics or not?
who cares whether it rocks or not?
quality = quality
whether you like it is a matter of taste
and there is no discussing taste

If they started any later, it would have been Tuesday before I would have gotten out of the parking lot.
