Does Radiohead hold as much weight as they used to?

I think TKOL showed that they are mainly concerned with making music that they enjoy making. I don’t think they care much about their position in the industry. I just hope they make one more great album before they call it quits. I wouldn’t mind at all if it were along similar lines as TKOL, as long as it’s longer and has more songs. I am greedy, and I want more, more more Radiohead!

they absolutely have 'pushed the boundaries of a genre' (or more accurately, just ignored supposed boundaries between genres). it might be an overhyped perception but it's also true (self-evident, i would have thought). you don't need a licence from the high guardians of the avant garde just because you sold a few million records. i listen to the guardians and they're just as in debt.

In Rainbows was awhile ago now but for them it's recent and I don't think tkol was some devastating decline that they can't more than recover from. In Rainbows is my fave too, so as far as I'm concerned tkol was a minor / lightweight detour from the peak

 

they don't need to "recover" from anything

I think the general consensus is that the more experimental approach to the recording of tkol, while by no means a failure, produced inferior results than the more traditional approach they took on previous albums (ie less loops, more songwriting)
