It sounds like it.

Horns, pianos, strings, 15 vocal tracks, bouncing beats, Donald "Duck" Dunn basslines, Thom singing like Smokey Robinson. Joy in the music.

Wouldn't that be the most "unexpected" thing Radiohead could do?

Or will we get another POS, "experimental", fart rock record?
Well no one but the band knows what the next record will be like. Have a listen to songs that are rumored to be on the next record

and none of those songs are better than that or 'let down'.

i ask again - where is the guitar? where is johnnny greenwood's genius? fuck the theremin. show me guitar.
i think radiohead went about as far as they could with nigel godrich at the helm. i'm curious beyond description to hear what their collaboration with 'spike' stent yeilds.
Let Down is my favorite radiohead song, its pure genius, but I still like everything post- ok computer

ah look, mr. brau is looking for a rise from people.

i can't really complain, i do it all the time.

at least i'm not stupid enough to make fun of an incredibly brilliant piece of work.

so i'll end with a line that people throw at me all the time, sarcastically no less.

"oooh look everyone, mr. brau's being controversial again!"

yeah, i'm with you on this. Let Down is pretty much one of the most gorgeous things ever created by man. literally perfect. nothing like it exists.
it must be tough to follow.
and i think there's an element of that with the 'kid A' detraction. the rolling stones were never as good after 'exile on main street' because that potential was no longer potential- it was a reality...and an expectation. you can't follow that. you can't live up to that.
how could any band follow 'the bends'? i mean it's perfect. then they actually TOP it! fucking insane. then how do you follow THAT? i don't know. i would have quit, i reckon.
kid A - i have a soft spot for it. but after 3 albums of the same experimentation, and feeling like they haven't gone ANYWHERE new...it all feels a little lost to me. i'm ready for something different from them. and they don't have to rehash 'the bends' or OKcomputer for me - they already made those albums. but this current course is unconvincing.
i agree wholeheartedly with mrbrau1's suggestion - radiohead do classic pop stylings - big arrangements, harmonies, phil spector wall of sound shit.

Thanks. This tune is good. Sounds like REM.

Hope they don't screw it up in the studio by making it sound like my car breaking down.

The true brilliance of Chuck Norris is how he’s produced everything in the known universe, as well as the parallel universe called Kid A. (Dear lord, I’ve fallen into the Chuck Norris lingo trap!)

Personally, I’d throw my coat down in the middle of a puddle or open the door for Kid A any day. It breaks all the rules. I love that about it.

Radiohead are all about the contrasts, at least for me.

It's been dead in here this week.

We needed something to get the blood flowing.

Amnesiac will be next. The crap record made from out-takes of this crap record.
