PR for a Radiohead album is like being tickled by a ghost.

If only she'd toured with some different bands, we might have had The 19751989311 Tour.

I love this so much. I wonder can we guess what will be the actual album highlights from just their midi mock-ups?

Rhianna totally kills it during the bridge; and I'm guessing that's McCartney's progression because it's great too.

Stonemilker reminds me a lot of Unravel, the string part in the former seems to take over from where her vocal line in the latter left off. Lionsong has completely floored me though. Those vocal harmonies are like she's disagreeing with herself mid-sentence.

I think In Rainbows and HTTT are both definitely 'rock' albums. And I don't understand how 'Bloom' (my bad) is entry-level, but I guess it is as you say, a matter of taste. Either way, this track is Yorke's solo stuff, so I don't think a lot of the Radiohead comparisons are really justified; the band can hardly do 'what they do well' when there's only one of them present! ;)

December 27, 2014 on Thom Yorke – “Youwouldn’tlikemewhenI’mangry”
I don't think progressive vs conservative is particularly relevant in relation to Yorke, or even Radiohead as a whole. With the exceptions of Ok Computer and Kid A, their music is rarely trying to usurp or outdo current trends. In Rainbows, The Bends and the King of Limbs especially are all much more relaxed in that sense. As for their 'extended second act', I'm assuming this contains the guitar-heavy In Rainbows and Hail to the Thief? Even King of Limbs has a decent amount of guitar work (Little by Little, Magpie, Separator, Give up the Ghost) as well as electronic experimentation that goes beyond 'entry-level': In Bloom, Feral. I do agree that this does very much sound like a Yorke song, however I take this more as his current stylistic slant following on from the remnants of Amok and TKOL. If anything I think his music is the most natural its ever been, to me it feels like someone playing electronics as if they were a performer; the computer replacing the acoustic guitar, not the electric.

This is very off-topic, but honestly don't know where else to share this wonderful creation: A completely re-written Christmas version of Yeezus, 'Kreezus'. It opens with 'I Am A Klaus'. That should be enough to convince you of its genius. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dlNYWFaOfXY&list=PLwsolcWNoTjXGzsX7CQQK-vl_IBKQJtDV&index=3&spfreload=10 Merry Christmas everyone!

Yeah, I think Jonny already established that this isn't really a Radiohead song. It is quite nice though for underscoring her narration.

Well said. I also love the structure of the lyrics: He ends the first stanza with 'I could fuck you all night long, From a memory alone' But because he has set up a disjointed rhythm as part of the melodic phrasing he separates 'From a memory' and 'alone'. Without the disjointedness it would mean 'From [just] my memory', but because of the pause (anticipated at the very start of the stanza!) it means 'From my memory, [while I'm alone]'. And because of the gap he sounds hesitant and disappointed saying it, yet without disturbing the musical phrasing he's set up. Much clever. So excite. Very Ocean. Wow.
