  1. Last week
  2. Earlier
  3. Yeah, I'd listen to HTTT part 2. But New Age. Thom isn't allowed to sing, no staccato notes, all environmental/atmospheric, and they probably won't be allowed to play in B minor.
  4. At this point I just want a change from their last few albums sound and have something different. I'd even be okay for a return to The Bends/OK Computer more rock focused sound at this point.
  5. Metal, even though it wouldn't be as good as Broken by NIN
  6. It's not my fav but it's still a great album imo
  7. 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?
  8. Yeah I popped a couple of tunes yesterday and was like, shiii, that's not ambient at all.
  9. what. wait. no... well i fucking love it. pulled it out of the shelf this week.
  10. 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.
  11. I have recently developed more of a taste for ambient, so I think I'm going give this album a try. Gauge its listenability.

  13. 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...
  14. In all honesty, I don't know what Massive Attack is, and at this point, I'm almost too afraid to ask.
  15. Sophistipop can be expanded to include City pop and ‘80s post disco funk pop/R&B pop styles
  16. 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.
  17. man, what is pj harvey doing these days? for awhile there everybody was just transfixed by her and then so quiet
  18. 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.
  19. 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
  20. 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
  21. 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.
