radiohead October 11, 2007Posted by AP in music.
i’m curious what you guys think of the new album. feel free to comment (or post on the tracks i didn’t cover).
for me, reckoner seems to be the standout so far. that warm jazz guitar sound works really well with the drums, which themselves remind me a bit of a love supreme. the song really comes together near the end with that massive drum fill and string fadeout.
bodysnatchers is quintessential radiohead; i could see this fitting on anything from the bends to hail to the thief. there is a lot of (good) noise on this track.
i’m disappointed with all i need. it’s a great live song, but the over-produced version that made the cut doesn’t do too well. it needs a lot of space to really come alive. also, the 160 kpbs quality really limits the power of the bassline.
apparently i’m not the only one upset about the 160 kpbs quality.
