You need to start off with Monster, THAT is their Pop.

If only RH were 1/5th that talented.

Yeah... that's right. Monster is their Pop. New Adventures is REM boldly going where U2 didn't go with ATYCLB.

I can't see it, sorry.
Well if you consider Hail to The theif a result of Kid A/Amnesiac than it's true. Thom Yorke said so himself.

Leave is totally and utterly sublime.

It's the perfect song for the introduction of the Post-Berry era.

Hail is a watered down version of both with some shit stirred in for good measure.

I really, really, really hope LP7 is better than that album. It has good songs, (2+2=5, There There, Where I End and You Begin, Sail to the Moon) but is a pain to listen to all of the way.

I can see Amnesiac being inspired by Up. Kid A reminds me more of Aphex Twin than anything.

Automatic = later career masterpiece, EG Achtung Baby

Monster = bizarre experiment many didn't enjoy, EG Zooropa

Up = schizophrenic, tape-loop driven album despised by many, EG POP.

Sorry, don't see it. All three of those are really good IMO.

If you see it that way, than yes, you're right.

But Monster is R.E.M. with fuzz and bells and whistles, so is Pop. Plus, judging by Atomic's other tastes, Monster is totally up her alley.

Possibly. I can definitely see how U2 and REM were rivals around this time, very much a Beatles/Beach Boys kind of thing happening, where one album inspires another, except probably not as direct.

Reveal is ATYCLB?

I can see the rivalry thing too, but it's friendly right. At least I hope it is.

Yep. And sadly, Around The Sun could be considered the HTDAAB.
