WallOfIce Posted February 20, 2011 Report Share Posted February 20, 2011 I can't connect emotionally to I Froze up or Let Me Take Control at all, I can however connect emotional to Bloom, Morning Mr. Magpie, Little by Little, Feral, Lotus Flower, Codex, Give Up the Ghost, and Separator. This album doesn't lack emotion, it lacks emotion you can connect to. Good, I'm glad for you. I envy you, I wish I could enjoy this record as much as everyone who loves it does. It's just a matter of different tastes and expectations I suppose. Just as I mentioned, based on the live material I had my hopes up for (and I hesitate to use this word, because I think it holds connotations that I'm not intending) - a "folkier" record based on the more guitar laden and in my opinion more soulful live performances that led up to this album. Like I said - there's enough to enjoy here. Bloom and Give Up the Ghost belong on any best of lists when it comes to Radiohead songs. Lotus Flower too, even if I feel like it fell short of its massive potential it had in the pre-recording stage. So yeah, if you enjoy this record that much I'm glad for you. I wish it could be up my alley as much as it is yours. I just had other things in mind when I loaded this up for my first listen. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
