  1. Is this the family reunion thread? I never thought i'd see this place resurrect, MT was definitely a product of its time and the sharp post-AMSP decline was overdue. Maintaining two fan boards for a 90's band that has an album every 5 years, in the age of reddit.. It's nice to know everything is still here, though. I spent a lot of my adolescence on this site reading up on bands and practicing my writing chops, so many memories.
  2. I kinda get this vibe myself. The vibe has been positively serene. That and the sets they've played have had a pretty equal distribution across their discography with no focus on amsp at all. Of course I hope that's not the case and the band are just in a great place.
  3. Finally found an alternate account I could log into. 'sup MT! I was at Toronto night 1, they were incredible and I had my first RH GA experience. Night 2 looked a lot better and I'm still kicking myself for not getting tickets for both nights upfront. They have improved so much since I saw them at MSG in 2016. Ful Stop is pretty much their greatest live song ever atm, I was blown away at that one in particular. And uh, shameless plea for a night 1 GA ticket for philly next week, I'm going to be in town for mbv and I really REALLY want to experience this amazing live show again once more before they inevitably hibernate for a few years.
  4. it's been so long. Can't get into my long fork account and the real Shortpants account was banned long ago. MT was still relatively healthy last I was here (post-amsp, maybe last summer) what happened? It's positively a ghost town now. Did the Radiohead subreddit finally wipe this place out?
  5. This For the people saying spectre has already been released multiple times: so has Burn the Witch, so has Daydreaming, the full album you could've had on vinyl and CD months ago. There is nothing strange about adding Spectre to the bonus disc. Again, it's inclusion does not mean it's taking the spot of some other unreleased track: two bonus songs is all these sessions had to offer. It is as simple as that. The band is regrouping for more dates in 2017, so its too early to think it's going to be another 5 year wait for more music. Just take a deep breath ok
  6. Someone on discogs said they contacted waste customer service and they told them the special edition would ship toward the end of the month. Annoying, but this is how it always goes isn't it. I can wait I guess, this will probably be the last new Radiohead song for a couple years at least
  7. Album is pretty incredible through self control then it loses it for me until white Ferrari, then it falls off again. With the closer. Maybe those will grow on me, if not this is still a pretty worthy follow up to channel orange. Less bangers but more tears
  8. I've tried to get into that mark Hollis solo LP for a long time now, but I think it's just a little too ambient for me. I think laughing stock is still the sweet spot for me
  9. When I was originally getting into the band, HTTT was the first one that felt like a drop off in quality on first listen. After a few months I think it was the one I was going back to the most though, so I understand what you mean. At one point I would've ranked it 3rd. After amsp it's probably fallen to 5th for me. It is inconsistent, but there's a loose quality to it that most of their albums are missing, so even relative filler like punch-up is novel for how laid back it feels. Also, the album feels the most live sounding of any of their albums. I really wish ful stop for example sounded half as visceral as myxo does on Thief for example
  10. My uncle has a reel to reel tape player, gonna borrow it and see if I can get my piece to play. Looking forward to the SE a lot, especially if the bonus track doesn't leak ahead of time
  11. I think present tense is my one disappointment. It's not bad or anything, but I was expecting something much more intense than what we ended up with. And the coffee house direction, I was expecting something more like the live version
  12. My friend got that album cover shirt. It looks pretty cool but I got the black one with the velvet letters, it looks more like something I could wear in public without offending my STEM peers
