Newbie (1/14)



  1. I had a dream last night that made me remember this place. I figured it was gone (and it was for a while, but I see it got revived, and is dying). Radiohead had released a double album, 10 songs per side. Which yeah, should've been the first red flag. I only heard bits from songs, cause dreams. The whole album was very electronic, and had almost an EDM vibe. One song even had the four on the flour beat. Yet it all sounded like Radiohead. The expanse in sound made me nostalgic for the 'they did WHAT now?' response to past albums. It somehow worked. It was filled with lush synths. It still had a bit of melancholy to it, but overall, it was warm, and accepting (I also hate this sentence, look, it sounded great). I had one song which I could hear more clearly, and kept on repeat for a while cause I loved it so much. I do not recollect if it was the same song, but for one of them the vocal melody was comparable to Thom's cover of 'All For The Best'. I know this reads like a parody post at this point, but sadly it's not. The closest thing I have for comparison to how it sounded is maybe certain songs on Soundtracks For The Blind, but it sounded more distinct and fully formed as to be so reductive by describing it like that. I woke up too early and went back to sleep, but still remembered somewhat when I got out of bed. Found out this place still is up, at least. So this is the post were 'getting old' Ed O'Brien gets nostalgic about the days were Radiohead albums were an event. Thank you all for the hype days and listening to these. Maybe one day they'll return, who knows, but it was a good one. Not being in nostalgic standstill, and even though I found out there was sadly no precog involved here, I hadn't heard Thom's latest solo album, and it's good.
  2. I like the drum machine in this track and I am pleased and somewhat relieved to browse this thread and find so many like-minded individuals, thank you
  3. this is rad everyone shut up about drum machines
  4. hey that sounds pretty good for sound quality also this song I keep playing it, it's... pretty good
  5. Def a grower since it's pretty subtle But digging it
  6. I know, just kidding! Anyone gotten it yet? Really curious about the bonus tracks.
  7. 'The pages turn smoothly...' Christ that is the marketing you have to resort to now? Jesus Radioheads get it together
  8. ma boi kojima got the CD, sounds great. very pleased
  9. choir in identikit is legit flash of bollywood radiohead video and the only way you can top that off is by doing a gnarly radhead shreds solo but played well by a straight-faced jonny
