Ugh this is so sad. Downie is such an excellent frontman, and a hugely underated lyricist " One afternoon, four thousand men died in the water here and five hundred more were thrashing madly as parasites might in your blood Now I was in a lifeboat designed for ten and ten only Anything that systematic would get you hated It's not a deal not a test nor a love of something fated (Death) The selection was quick The crew was picked and those left in the water were kicked off our pant leg And we headed for home Then the dream ends when the phone rings You're doing alright he said It's out there most days and nights But only a fool would complain Anyway Susan, if you like, our conversation is as faint as a sound in my memory As those fingernails scratching on my hull" - Nautical Disaster

Why anyone would speculate Radiohead's imminent demise without a shred of evidence is beyond me, but yeah, this album is incredible, for me only beat out by their Kid A/Amnesiac combo Just a staggering piece of work. Decks Dark my gawwwwd, so gorgeous. I could go on and on Pitchfork actually has a lovely write up of TLW :

Ahhh! Maybe I'm a hopeless devotee, but at this point I really can't comprehend people doubting her live performance skills - her voice is lithe and airy, singing the high notes while playing guitar, triggering her own electronics/synths, and rocking twitchy vampire dance moves in between. In a corset. Who else does that or writes songs as hyper addictive as this?! Sailor Moon power-up fireball attack transformation

Kind of ironic that Anohni's "Hope There Someone" would make a much more powerful Memorial song, although maybe a little too devastating Blackbird is lovely enough I guess
