  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.

  11. oh yeah no I agree re: the shit they tried to pull in the past tbh I have watched some of those reaction videos before that shit came to pass and only on this video realised that's what the fine bros upload
  12. you can do my tactic of watching it, deleting it from your history and let the wave of forced overlord recommendations pass over then again I'm not sure if I should be encouraging watching it and giving them more views that said I totally watched it spoilers: kids are so shocked/focussed on the video they don't take in the music. reactions are fairly amusing. if they get on your nerves then wow dude
