For the most part the list is agreeable, glad Zola Jesus was in there too. But doesn't anybody else care that they left out Flo + the Machine?

I have no idea why I can't stand country and at the same time like most of Noel's music. And this really doesn't sound like Oasis at all . . .

Really hope that Austra wins. It feels like Arcade Fire probably will though.

I love the covers of Ceremony and Headmaster's ritual. If it wasn't for Radiohead then I'd never learn about Joy Division. But for some reason I can never get Headmaster's ritual to download on my computer. It's killing me that it's not working.

I found out about Radiohead about six months ago when I caught 'fake plastic trees' on vh1 classic's 120 minutes. Since then, I haven't felt the slightest dissapointment in anything they've done. Maybe my outlook's different because I'm a rather new Radiohead fan, but The King of Limbs in my opinion has been one of their best works It's perfectly layered, may have some of Thom's best vocals, and may be their most complex work. But at the same time, it's short, completely lacks any of Jonny's geniune guitar, and sounds like it might as well be Thom's solo effort. With that being said, it's not exactly my favorite. This review really really hit the nail on the head. And face it, no matter who we are, we're all afraid to think Radiohead may have released an OK album. Though it may be great, those few downsides really bring it down.

When I first gave this album a listen, I felt extremely disappointed. But after a few listens, I fell in unconditional love with it. It feels like they threw everything they've done since Kid A together. And the new Morning Mr Magpie is a far cry from Hail to the Thief. It definitely feels like it's going to be a double album, I highly believe these conspiracy theories.
