Deathbear, how do you like the new Radiohead?

i'm diggin' it so far!

kind of reminds me of The Bends(which is my fave).

i know you're a huge Radiohead fan, so i was curious to hear your take on it.

comments from other posters will be deleted.


thanks.

thanks.
ive been thinking about it more lately, and my assumption is that the cd will be hardly any different than what you hear now.

so i will openly say that i think radiohead need a new producer. i understand what they did with kid a and amnesiac, but this album is not like those in anyway.

what im getting at is the sound. its quite. WAY too quite. the energy has been completely sucked out of it.

i still like it a lot, but the live versions of these songs but this to shame.

i mean sit down stand up for example. how, HOW could they have butchered this song so bad? i mean really, it disturbs me.

we'll see how i feel about it once im holding the cd in my hands. but in the meantime, i truly believe theyve butchered themselves in the studio.

sorry nigel.

tommorow, btw, i could have a totally different opinion. im grouchy.

While listening in headphones....The beginning of "The Gloaming" actually Tickles your eardrums. As well as some parts throughout the song.



Carry on.

actually ali rose, it tickles your ear drums so to speak because its not mastered. if you had to listen to that album for too long your ears would get really sore.

in fact, jonny recently said what everyone is hearing is from the FIRST day of MIXING.

Mr. Zoombear,
I have a question. Since I haven't heard it yet, I am wondering if you meant quiet or quite in your earlier post? Not sure what to expect. Not sure if I'll dig it if it's quiet. Although, I do like amnesiac...was that considered quiet?

okay. bye.

at last...I heard there there on the radio yesterday.The drumming caught my ear first, I thought, what's this? the Shadows? but then it developed. I was near the stereo , so put the headphones on. !WOW! he sure can sing. Good stuff:thumbs up:
There is so much more good music to come. It's incredible and delightful. We're lucky eh?

yes cass the drums are awesome, but they could not possibly be loud enough. thats my beef.

and im not grouchy today, and now i really love the album again...

and yes lemon, i meant quiet. i feel songs like scatterbrain and the gloaming should beat it, same with we suck young blood. replace those with up on the ladder, and youll be a superstar in my eyes.

amnesiac was very quiet.

hail to the thief is loud compared to amn, but i figured it would be louder.

im just a stupid idiot. im way too picky. my apologies.

no bear...you dont get it....I heard it again today on the radio.....the drums on the mastered version are much louder and prominent. Seems to have more energy....I think you'll be quite pleased ....Surely you can download the real version by now....being that its on the radio and all.

Deathbear, I think the reason it sounds too quiet (and I agree it does sound a bit too quiet, so turn the FRIGGIN volume up) is that we are listening to MP3s. I just think this sort of thing compresses music and makes it sound small and tinny to some extent. I mean, There There on the radio sounds noticeably 'fuller' to me, though it's not really altered in any way to the MP3s.

I've heard it said that U2's albums are also mixed too low. If you put on almost any random album by any artist at a moderately loud level, then afterwards put on the Joshua tree, you have an urge to turn the volume knob up a few notches, cause it's so damd quiet. I find I have to turn POP up to the max just to get the full impact of Discotheque. If I can't feel it in my bones, it's too quiet.

while mp3s are definately not perfect quality, i do believe they are superior to fm radio broadcasts.
