Thom Yorke - Tomorrow's Modern Boxes

Recommended Posts

I actually just got around to listening to this all the way through and I don't really like it.

 

There's almost no variation in any of the songs, it's the exact same chord progression and vocal melody for the whole song in almost every song, the only variation is that maybe toward the end a little sound effect will pop in. There's also no variation in mood or pace whatsoever.

 

I bet this isn't a "real" album, I think it's probably just Thom experimenting with sounds, textures, and production methods for the next Radiohead album.

lol this post. Coz Idioteque and Bloom and Planet Telex are just full of variation

Amok is great from BYVE to Unless, then it gets real dull until the title track

i can agree with this. except Judge Jury is very sexy and fresh. 

and there are weaker songs on TMB than Stuck Together Pieces.

JJE is alright but I think STP and Reverse Running are pretty dull, the worst thing is that all three of those songs have very similar vibes so kinda blend into one big thing, where the first half of the album is super varied

this album has a few winners on it that really saves it from being jus another b-sides compilation

the winners im talking about would have made amok so much more well rounded though, amok is lyrically soft and much more musically driven, the vocals are jus another layer, as if being one of the instruments, and lyrics almost sound like an afterthought, like they were haphazardly written on napkins before a jam band gig
