  1. Last week
  2. Earlier
  3. It's not my fav but it's still a great album imo
  4. I didn't fall in love with it right away, I'll give you that. But I feel more attached to it every time I listen to it. And enjoy hearing or recognising bits and pieces of earlier works, but it's challenging too, yet at most time now, I hear less cacophonous chaos and more cohesion. Similar to my experience with Amok. Which two songs are you talking about?
  5. Yeah I popped a couple of tunes yesterday and was like, shiii, that's not ambient at all.
  6. what. wait. no... well i fucking love it. pulled it out of the shelf this week.
  7. For better or worse the album isn’t at all ambient (Santa Teresa was not even included). It’s more like ‘90s style alternative rock, so you get crunchy grungy riffs and softer folkie moments all with a fussy and ethereal Eno/Lanois inspired production. There are a couple of dutiful and dated dance beats as well, so it’s a slightly more electronic Bends in its soundscape.
  8. I have recently developed more of a taste for ambient, so I think I'm going give this album a try. Gauge its listenability.

  10. https://www.theguardian.com/music/2021/feb/08/european-touring-radiohead-brexit-colin-greenwood Seems like a convincing argument and The Guardian is an improvement on his usual, The Spectator. I can’t figure out why Colin ever wrote for them if he feels so strongly opposed to Conservative Party policies, as they’re the Tories’ official magazine, and editing the Spectator served as a career launch for many future party leaders like Johnson and Cameron...
  11. In all honesty, I don't know what Massive Attack is, and at this point, I'm almost too afraid to ask.
  12. Sophistipop can be expanded to include City pop and ‘80s post disco funk pop/R&B pop styles
  13. She hasn’t slowed down any more than Radiohead in terms of release schedule though. If anything she’s flooding the market right now with reissues of every album’s demos at the same time. Hope Six was very underrated, I think it’s one of her best albums musically, much better than Let England Shake, although both have a few lyrics that don’t work (Medicinals is a fucking disaster). I’ve been relistening to a lot of the older stuff and I especially love A Woman a Man Walked By and Is This Desire.
  14. man, what is pj harvey doing these days? for awhile there everybody was just transfixed by her and then so quiet
  15. Yeah it’s weird how rarely they seem to come up in discussions of “best bands.” You even see Massive Attack come up in those discussions and they were never a band at all. Sade maintained the same lineup for decades.
  16. I can't believe I just found out Sade isn't an R&B solo artist in the year of our Lord two thousand twenty one
  17. I don't really get that review (the linked one) because I never found Kid A (or Amnesiac) to be particularly off-putting or weird... maybe it's just because I wasn't into Radiohead until 2006? Idk
  18. Sade is better than both but they only made one album in the ‘90s and for mysterious reasons they are seen as an R&B solo artist rather than an indie “guitar band” even though almost all their stuff has guitar.
  19. Nick Hornby? https://www.newyorker.com/magazine/2000/10/30/beyond-the-pale He’s not super interesting, just the dude who wrote (the original) High Fidelity, but it’s weird how true some of his observations feel. I think one reason people go off edgy music isn’t necessarily that they become more conservative, but maybe they become more committed to left wing beliefs and they start to realize edgelordism, particularly by white dudes, is rarely a challenge to the established order it pretends to oppose, more often ends up feeding into the right, and is therefore neither ideologically ad
  20. 1. Who is this dude you are talking about 2. Where can I read this
  21. well sure your tastes change. thats my point - nothing wrong with the music, its you that changed. i still enjoy that album, but tbh i don't listen to any band much these days. lately its all classical. but i still consider rh one of my favorite bands. don't think i'd consider myself a 'stan', quite. i don't know, i don't like to over analyze music, though i appreciate when i do realize something profound has occurred. its more of an emotional connection, i think. which, thank god, is one reason i don't have to analyze it to feel it. i do like what Bjork said there, and what s
  22. What is "stans"? Ok, got it. I thought it would be more obscure than that.
  23. Don’t you change your own tastes over time as well? I love Radiohead(‘s music, not the people in the band apart from maybe Ed) because it seems like the band themselves always grow to see flaws of their old stuff and that spurs them toward new directions and creativity. I don’t agree with the way Radiohead stans treat Kid A, which is the same way these same stans once objected to older gen x stans like Hornby talking about how The Bends or OKC. The attitude that the band’s best work was in the past and could never be topped was rightly scorned when that was how their ‘90s work was viewed, but
