Radiohead fans?

Postby Retrology » June 1st, 2016, 2:32 am

As you probably have guessed by now, Radiohead is my favorite band. I love their songwriting, and that every album is different. So many people claim this for many artists, but Radiohead literally does different directions for every work they do. They're the most important band in my life, and in their own league.

Favorite songs include Bullet Proof, Street Spirit, The Tourist, Treefingers, All I Need, House of Cards (2nd Radiohead song I ever heard after Creep), Bloom, and These Are My Twisted Words. Favorite album is a tie between OK Computer and Kid A.

Thoughts?

I really like Radiohead, but I have some holes in my knowledge; apart from a single listen to In Rainbows (which isn't anywhere near enough to appreciate most albums), I've only listened to The Bends, OK Computer, Kid A and Amnesiac. Of those, I like Kid A the best, which The Bends as the runner-up. Some of my favorite songs are I Might Be Wrong, Bones, Airbag, Climbing Up the Walls, Idioteque, Just, Uptight, The Pyramid Song and The National Anthem (the main riff from which is one of the first things I play when trying out a bass or a bass distortion). They have a sense of melancholy that I find really intoxicating and I appreciate their desire to avoid resting on their laurels. I do find some of their fans obnoxious in their insistence that someone who doesn't like the band "doesn't get it" or "needs to listen more closely" and I don't like how Thom Yorke acts towards his concert audiences sometimes and how he seems to think it beneath him to play some of their older material.
