BTW, the password to the Loveless link I sent you all is "pokitoperohay". Don't ask me why; I hotlinked that one.

Dude - no no no. Shoegaze didn't exist before MBV. MBV knew how to "create sound", not just "make noise". Huge difference. MBV knew how to focus or control feedback and whatever else they used. And if you dig deep enough into any MBV song, you find a truly beautiful simple song - covered in layers and layers of sound - at the core of the song. You could probably play most MBV songs on just an acoustic guitar and it'd still be beautiful. Generations ahead of their time. Think The Cure's "Disintegration" but written 50 years from now.


I love Jesus and Mary Chain, but their approach was more - "let's pretend we're Brian Wilson and then drop a fucking ton of feedback over it." That's where shoegaze went, simple loud feedback. No one got it right...though HUM did pretty good with it too. I need to make you that CD Zoots. Shit. This was all covered on the CD, man. You coming for St. Patrick's Day? I'll have a new one for you by then.

I agree - I never really got REM. A couple of tunes here and there, but overall....meh.

Just to add my two or whatever cents to the Radiohead vs. REM discussion: I love Radiohead but NO WAY are they better than REM, sorry, that's just my opinion. I respect both bands and have almost everything they have ever released, but I'm totally in love with Michael Stipe's voice and REM have made some of my all-time-favourite songs. But in the end: Who cares. They are friends, so let's be friends as well.

Back to the In Rainbows discussion...

I really haven't gotten into Radiohead until now, but I have to say Reckoner is an amazing song. I can't get enough of it.

I really think the entire album is quite good from beginning to end as well.

For someone like me who's only experience with Radiohead before In Rainbows is the song Creep, where should I go from here?

I'm quite intrigued now to listen and discover more Radiohead

Oh. That Loveless.

I just skimmed the discussion and thought you guys were talking about some secret Radiohead song called Loveless.

Yeah, I do have it.

But how did you know that?! You're freaking me out, mofo.

I'd say go right to Ok Computer followed immediately by Kid A. Kid A is my favorite but OKC is considered the classic and arguably the best record of its decade.
