Would anyone else like to sign my petition for a Colin Greenwood solo record?
These boys know how to make music in any and every context. More please.
The headline to this article is like one of those Hemingway six-word stories: ‘Baby shoes for sale; never worn,’ ‘Otherwise tolerant rapper denies anti-Semitism,’ ‘Solange attacks Jay-Z; still a single lady.’
Also (though this veers even more off-topic), where does the hate (if there is hate) for TKOL come from? I can understand it not being on a pedestal along In Rainbows (and other rightfully lauded ‘recent-ish’ Radiohead) but the album has many fantastic songs and moments:
‘Bloom’ is incredible; ‘Codex’ is a perfect Thom ballad to add to the canon; ‘Separator’ is a beautiful jam that grows like the album’s theme desires; ‘Little By Little’ is just a great rocker that is so fun and textured. I won’t even start on the B-Sides.
I think I might give ‘Separator’ a spin right now. (These Coldplay songs are also very nice)
I really like Snakes. That is a very good song. The rest seems inconsistent: some good ideas marred by bad ones.
I’m certainly interested to hear follow-up stuff if that’s on the cards.
2014, take me now.
I would like to add that it’s Glen ‘the Frames frontman’ Hansard who busks every year for charity, as he’s the main organiser of the event.
Bono, Damien Rice, Sinead O’Connor and other Irish musicians make little guest appearances. Which are great, but really we have Glen and the low-profile musicians with him to mainly thank; Bono was only there for two songs!
I’m excited to listen to this, but the fact that I have to open ITunes again is killing me. When I realise I’ve clicked an ‘automatically open ITunes’ link I always think, ‘I SAID NEVER OPEN THAT BOX PANDORA!’ (Ironically, Pandora still not available in my country)
I love when Justin talks to the instruments: ‘Drums’ ‘Then the Horns Say’ etc
I feel if Get Lucky was replaced with Aerodynamic I wold be slightly more at ease.
Kid A is my go-to-album for these lists. I will admit I make snap judgements when it does not appear.
