The rare band without a bad album with at least 4 albums released, so quite possibly the best active band of our time.


1. In Rainbows
2. The King of Limbs
3. OK Computer
4. Kid A
5. The Bends
6. Hail to the Thief
7. Amnesiac
8. Pablo Honey


5-7 are really interchangeable though.

Banana

There's also a quasi EP/LP that you can put together of single tracks released before and after tKoL. I have them grouped together under an album title in my iTunes as listed:

1. These Are My Twisted Words
2. The Butcher
3. Staircase
4. Supercollider
5. Harry Patch (In Memory Of)
6. The Daily Mail


If there were two more to add to that it could find itself into the 5-7 mix on the album list.

7 and 8 are interchangeable.

There are so many different layers within the songs on tKoL. You can listen to it and focus in on something else each time and have a completely different listening experience. It's a work of art.

And the same can't be said about OKC? Or Kid A?

Agree with the post above: I'd consider myself a big Radiohead fan, but really just can't quite get into anything TKOL forward. That's not to say I won't keep trying, but still - just hasn't done much for me.

There's so much going on. All these little parts thrown together that on the top just sounds like chaos. As if it's just repeating noise for the sake of it. But it's all there for a reason and it all works separately on it's own yet it's all weaved together perfectly.

You can listen to that song repeatedly and each time just choosing one of the layers to listen to. And that layer alone is it's own brilliant song and it almost seems like they are doing their own part with no connection to any other. Then you listen again but focus on just another layer. All their own brilliant songs. But they are all so weaved together perfectly and blend so well and react perfectly to the corresponding layers. It's fucking beautiful like a classic painting.

I don't smoke anymore but if you smoke and listen to this at night in the dark with headphones on and really focus in on all the different parts you can see the whole picture of theses songs and see the mastery of it all.

Yeah, you get it to a small extent on other records of theirs and Thom Yorke especially with his other music projects and other musicians. But nothing close to the mastery and perfection of tKoL.

It's almost a journey of sorts because the album starts with the most complex and full tracks with Bloom and Mr. Morning Magpie but very slowly yet gradually drifts into a more calmed and less clustered creation. Almost more organic of earth while the beginning of the album is more chaotic like the surrounding universe. It truly is an album that needs to be listened to in it's entirety to really appreciate it. That's why it was so short. Because it needs to be listened to in full, not just certain songs and out of place. It's also got so much going on that it offers more than some other album that is 20-30 minutes longer in length.

Oh I have, but Kid A and OK Computer don't have anywhere near close to the amount of layers and thickness of the texture that are present on tKoL. There's definitely a present at points full texture on those albums but not at all like the texture with everything going on at once almost seemingly incoherently at face value and then coming together and culminating perfectly like it does on tKoL. tKoL is just in an entirely different league of it's own in that regard. That's ok though and doesn't take anything away from those two albums because what they were going for on Kid A and OK Computer isn't the same thing that they were going for on tKoL.


Idioteque is probably the closest thing from those two albums that would be able to fit on tKoL but even then I feel like it would be a bit out of place since tKoL is most definitely a clear conscious journey/path from the start to the end of the album and each song is clearly structured the way it is to fit that journey and the gradual change of course that the album takes you on.

Banana
04-06-2014, 10:51 AM
tKoL is definitely going to be one of those albums that people appreciate far more many years after it's been released when they are able to separate themselves from the hype and expectations they had for a new Radiohead album and actually listen to tKoL without any preset bias and take it in for all that it's worth. Once you're able to really listen and appreciate everything that is going on with that album you are able see what an amazing work of art it is.

This shit was clean....bc I've had bad trips in the past...but these trips were so enlightening...I transcended. I just wish I could remember what exactly I realized about the universe at that particular moment....now it's long gone. All I remember during my trip was that it was CONSTANT deja vu....really constant....my sister and friends, we were doing the same things saying the same things....everything happened over and over. I think that tripping some how made my consciousness to transcend which enabled me to witness multiple parallel universes. That's the only explanation I can think of.

certainly not true. TKOL is ok, but it is not in the top 50% of their releases and it will always be dwarfed by the total awesomeness of In Rainbows.

as for the ranking, Kid A is definitely their most innovative and influential release, but I personally can't rank it above In Rainbows, Ok Computer, or the Bends. Amnesiac and Hail to the Thief don't do as much for me. I think a lot of Hail to the Thief is just boring. Pablo Honey I know is just a generic 90s guitar album, but I think some of the songs are quite catchy and IMO Thom Yorke's best vocals are on that album. It gets shit on a lot because it's like the album before they became a progressive force to be reckoned with, but it's actually very endearing and enjoyable. I always skip Creep.

Banana

He has been remarkable influential in music. He falls under that Radiohead umbrella of having released at least 4 albums without a single one being bad. He's one of the best produces out there and he was able to go beyond that and become one of the best musical artists and performers out there. He has all this immense talent yet he doesn't just sit on what has worked and try to milk that. He's a genius in that he is able to harness that talent and consistently evolve and improve as an artist and change the music and pop culture scene and influence it as he does so. He isn't pigeon holed to one corner of the music world or the art world.

Not only does the man make one of the greatest hip hop albums ever but he also puts out a 35 minute for it that is brilliant.

<iframe width="560" height="315" src="//www.youtube.com/embed/Jg5wkZ-dJXA" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>

You look at his latest masterpiece and he apparently only put that together in a few months. Came to Rick Rubin with a largely incomplete project only weeks away from release and was able to get it down to the greatness that is Yeezus.


Not only is releasing this incredibly high quality music but he has been releasing it at such a high rate that it's remarkable and unseen in music these days. He has released an album every year since 2010 that has been great and one of the best albums for each of the years and he isn't slowing down (and that isn't even considering his 4 great and highly influential albums he released prior to 2010). He just delayed/cancelled Australia shows for his tour because he's finishing up his latest album which will drop sometime this year.


He's such a god damn musical genius that his work is practically flowing out of him uncontrollably. Not only is he putting out this prolific track record of music without a flaw but he is doing it without any hesitation or need for a a few years off or a few years to get the creative juices flowing and put something together. He is putting out something every fucking year and he is pushing the bar higher and higher when he does it.

How does that make him a genius, or are you just too easy to please?
3) best performers
What does he do onstage? What instruments does he play?
4) he has all this immense talent
Like what?
5) consistently evolve and improve as an artist
There are many artists that do this. Are they all geniuses as well?
6) a 35 minute video
I guess you've never seen Magical Mystery tour
7) Yeezus was so amazing!

Only 10 years since he has been putting out his own music (discounting his work as a producer for other artists before that) but look at that crazy fucking catalog in only 10 years.

College Dropout - Great
Late Registration - Great
Graduation - Great
808 & Heartbreak - Great and absurdly influential
My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy - One of the greatest hip hop ablums...wait...one of the greatest albums ever.
Watch The Throne - Great
Cruel Summer - Great
Yeezus - Great


6 great solo albums, 1 great collab album with one of the mount rushmore rappers yet he absolutely carried it, and 1 compilation album which he again carries. 8 total great albums in 10 years. And chances are very likely that it's going to end up being 9 great albums in 10 years before the year is done.

Not quote. What I've read is that they did record their usual instrumentation on the album, but then completely deconstructed the individual elements and just sampled themselves, and reconstructed the songs using these samples of their orignal parts. That's why it took so long to make the album.

i agree. we do not understand the analytic mathematics of music yet but i guarantee you there is a mathematical proof that limp bizkit and nickelback objectively suck

it's why i get defensive about kanye and u2 to a much lesser extent because i do not think that there's an objective suckiness at play with either artist and if you REALLY give a shit about the fact that we all like different stuff why do you have to go all aggro about kanye west and make me argue on banana's side. because i'll come to ye's defense every goddamn time and I KNOW you motherfuckers tend to respect my taste

and also i like U2's 80s stuff, remove it from the context of the band at their self-celebratory dinosaur present and put it in the context of a hungry, idealistic band from an economically downtrodden country in the me first 80s

you still have yet to disprove any of it, "do they play instruments" is just about the dumbest, most 90s criteria for liking anything and directly connects to Elephant 6 where everyone could play any instrument badly for the sake of doing it and being pretentious about it

your dislike of rap in general, not just kanye west which you've already admitted you've never listened to, is well documented already

So, yeah, that Kanye song had a line that went "Finish my croissant!".
I don't get it. Like, is that supposed to be funny? Or is it just a line that doesn't matter or what?
It sounds really unnatural too, it sticks out.

That's how I feel about all Hip-Hop really. Clearly I'm missing something.
And Im a young dude, so it's not an age thing. My parents listen to Kanye and shit. I don't feel like the whole "Dad Rock" thing applies anymore since Rap is so popular now and I know few Dads who actually actively listen to Rock.
I still think it's more rebellious to wear a "Dead Kennedy's" shirt in this day and age then it is to wear a Yeezus shirt. I see 13 year old girls wearing Yeezus shirts that their Dad's bought them.

U2 is awful.

Radiohead is one of the greatest bands ever. I think the way they blended social alienation with politics on OK Computer is just incredible. Yorke's overlying theme has always been about how our artificial society is what causes us to be sick. It's a basic liberal theme, but no where is it put better and more powerfully than in Radiohead's early albums.

I haven't really cared about anything they put out since Kid A and Amnesiac and while there's some pretty good songs on either of these, i probably like the three records before them more. I remember though when i bought Ok Computer it was because in like 1999 when i joined this forum people wouldn't shut up about it (I pretty much missed most of popular culture as a whole from 1996 to 2000, i caught up since) and i bought it and was extremely disappointed. Only a few years later would i start to appreciate it though as much as i REALLY like a lot of radiohead songs, i only like about half the songs on Ok computer, 3/4 on The bends and 1/3 (or maybe even 1/4) on Pablo Honey. It's like they know how to write songs i REALLY like and songs i don't really give a shit about. They always frustrated me that way.

2+2=5 is Radiohead's greatest album opener. It rocks to insane degree and has one of the grooviest breakdowns I've heard from any band ever. (10/10)

Sit Down, Stand Up is a Rock song with a fucking DROP.
(ALL THE RAINDROPS ALL THE RAINDROPS ALL THE RAINDROPS)
I lose my shit every time (8/10)

Sail to the Moon is just beautiful (8/10)

Backdrifts has those cool swirling electronics and Yorke's voice blends with them perfectly in a fusion I've never heard replicated by another group (9/10)

Go to Sleep is a folky song to take a break from the electronics and damn if it isn't a good one. Again, Yorke's vocals have never sounded better (9/10)

Where I end and you Begin is a bit forgettable but still is pretty great I love this version:
I WILL EAT YOU ALIVE I WILL EAT YOU ALIVE (7/10)

<iframe width="560" height="315" src="//www.youtube.com/embed/-3ZUQMBD5yI" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>

We Suck Young Blood is indeed pretty weak but it's got a cool dark atmosphere and I don't dislike it, it fits well into the flow of the album (6/10)

The Gloaming
I can seriously feel the walls bend with my breathing. (9/10)

There, There is the most brutally sad and all around best Radiohead song. I can hardly make it through without crying. and then it picks up into a rocker at the end and gives you a break
(Just because you feel it, doesn't mean it's real) 11/10

I Will is as gripping and emotionally powerful as an anti-war song gets and Yorke's chorus of vocals are just unbelievable
(With white elephants and sitting ducks
I will Rise up
Little babies eyes, eyes, eyes) 10/10

A Punchup at a wedding is a weird song with weird lyrics but fuck it grooovess (8/10)

Myxomatosis is similar to Punchup in that I'm not really sure what to think of it other than it's weird and it makes me want to dance. It also has some cool lyrics in it as well. (8/10)

Scatterbrain
It's hard to describe the personal emotional impact this song has on me it's just overwhelming. But it's a perfect song for the theme of the album that captures the nightmarish delirium of the cover (10/10)

A Wolf at the Door is like Gothic Folk Rock (10/10)

Average Score: 8.8/10
