Tomorrow's Modern Boxes is INCREDIBLYredibly underrated

Recommended Posts

I enjoyed it greatly, but I don't know if I'd go as far as comparing it to Kid A

 

This claim was mainly to be provocative enough to incite dialogue. I don't think TMB rivals Kid A in terms of cultural importance, creativity, etc. But I think it's severely overlooked. The way each song melds together and the overall structure of the album reminds me of Kid A in a way though.

Okay I can most definitely agree with that

It def has some great moments. It feels a little stagnant as a whole to be considered great to me, though. 

 

I love Nose Grows Some the best. 

 

Nose Grows Some is without a doubt my favorite track on the album, followed by The Mother Lode. I know what you mean about it begin stagnant, since that's a sentiment I've always felt until I relistened to it. The more minor and less climactic tracks have opened up to me though and I find they have a really subtle powerfulness to them, like interference and Guess Again!, even Pink Section. I do wish There is No Ice (for my Drink) was a bit less skeletal, but that's kind of the sound of the album.

I will def give it a listen again. It's been awhile. When it came out, though, I listened to it a ton.

 

I'm really excited to see Thom play some of it live with Nigel next month!!

Gotcha. Yeah really more of a duo. I mean, I have no doubt that Thom writes all his material (lyrically and musically) for his solo albums, but Nigel's contribution is so important. Has any one listened to Nigel's band "Ultraista"?

It's nice. However solo Thom albums are great lessons in why Radiohead is such a special collection of individuals and this one was no different in that regard. In a universe where Radiohead didn't exist and Thom jumped straight to making this stuff maybe I would be less indifferent. Shrug.

The reissue CD was supposed to be out today.

 

However, my local record shop didn't have it and it seems it's not out anywhere.

Sellers on eBay say January 19th now.

 

Delayed again?

Because initially it was supposed to be out December 5th.
