Joaquin on Sunshine
Find Me On:
Really? I thought that Flips cover album was pretty much a failure.
^^^ I’m not saying that TKOL is better/as good/on par than Kid A. Just squashing that shit storm now.
You contradicted your original argument so badly right here:
“Leave the experimental electronics to those whom do it best”
“Kid A is quite possibly my favorite and that is arguably the most experimental”
P.S: I think the most frustrating part about this album’s release is that people who haven’t liked Radiohead since they were a straightforward rock band finally got a straightforward rock album with In Rainbows. They were expecting them to keep going in that direction, and in true Radiohead fashion, they didn’t. It’s just Kid A all over again but with more space on the internet to bitch about it.
I swear this band used to have a set of testicles… what happened? Where did we go wrong?
I’m goin with Commodores.
Also, you guys know Flaming Lips are from Oklahoma, right?
You should check out the Teletubbies OST, as well. “Ice Cream” might even be on there.
But yeah, this album is decent. Not quite as enjoyable to me as Mirrored but still not bad.
Also, it’s nobody’s fault but your own that you paid 50 dollars for a deluxe version of an album that you had never heard before. You can’t make a gut purchase like that and then whine when it’s not up to your ultimate judging criteria. It’s funny how entitled people are these days…
Why exactly do you think it sounds like a Thom solo album? I keep hearing this and it’s so annoying. This album is much warmer and organic than The Eraser or Pulled Apart by Horses… it’s like the people saying “is Johnny even still in the band?” Have you listened to Radiohead since OK Computer came out? Have you ever heard Kid A? Since when does Johnny only play guitar? It’s not news that Johnny chooses to work with soundscapes and synths as opposed to shredding solos… All the OK Computer fans that never got over the switch got spoiled by In Rainbows’ rockability and were apparently hoping that Radiohead furthered that sound so that they just turned into boring, boring rock music.
There we go!
Ugh. Image embed failure.
