let down is like that

but of course let down>> all I need

This album needs some single releases.

It's arguably Radiohead's most accessible album, catchy enough, and with enough hooks and sweet melodies to warrant these tunes some good play on commercial radio.

It could elevate R-Head into the same greatness as The Beatles, U2, The Rollin' Stones if some of these songs were allowed to hit number one on the mainstream charts. They need a smash hit to follow up Creep. They've been getting the publicity in the past month, now they need to back it up by letting some of these tunes hit number one on the national mainstream charts (which they do have the potential to do).

1. All I Need
2. Wierd Fishes
3. Reckoner
4. House Of Cards

at the moment All I Need is probably my favourite Radiohead song. I know that's absurd because it's only been out a week, but to me the song is utterly perfect, and to me it produces a feeling very similar to WOWY.

Let Down is stunning though. Probably not my favourite on OK Computer (Climbing Up the Walls ), but Let Down is up there. Beautiful and sad.

intedomine - yeah it'd be damn nice to actually hear Radiohead on the radio. It is in their name after all I dunno about your choice of singles though...the only one of those that would have a chance at #1 probably is All I Need...maybe Reckoner, but with the way it's sung I dunno. Weird Fishes is too...well, weird, and House of Cards is too boring/laid-back. Bodysnatchers is an obvious choice for a single. I wish Radiohead would do an iPod ad

I must say that I'm impressed that this album is literally exactly what I wanted from Radiohead. I wanted some change in direction, a shift a bit away from the electronica and more toward the sound of OK Computer which imo did a perfect job of integrating their original rock sound with some electronic elements and more complex songwriitng. Also I did want them to rock out a bit, but really the reason I listen to Radiohead isn't to rock out. It's more for the songs I can lose myself in. So...on this album they did everything I wanted

I just love the approach of Radiohead in the sense that the songs are made to be quite simply, bloody good songs. There's no experimentation. They've done enough of that. It;s like a coming together of all their favourite approaches to songwriting in the past 10 years, with the focus on melody and the sheer brilliance of the songs.

arpeggi sounds neutered though. the guitars are too subtle in the climax... during the live renditions, what made the song for me was the tension built by jonny and ed.

oh well. that's nigel for you. at least he got all i need right.

So, I happened upon pisspoormedia.com's review of Wilco's Sky Blue Sky last night in which they rate it very low and call it 'dad rock' because the band recorded the songs in a manner that is more straight forward compared to their previous efforts.

Then they fall over one another (metaphorically - we all know that they haven't been in the presence of real human beings in several years) to slobber the knob (again metaphor - see above) of In Rainbows.

WTF - Its ok to be biased, but lets at least try to hide it.

I'm a HUGE radiohead fan. I am NOT a fan of the HUGE writers of pisspoormedia.com

Wilco wrote and recorded the best album of 2007.
