Radiohead is probably the best band of the past 20 years. Opinions?
but without bleep bloops they wouldnt had made TKOL from the basement
I just know that LP9 is going to be good no matter what. they haven't released a bad album since Pablo and we just heard Specter so we know they still got it
>but without bleep bloops they wouldnt had made TKOL from the basement
I'd even go further and say that the basement version of "Bloom" is their greatest live performance ever.
you can't delegitimize albums because they have good production. in that case St Pepper and Pet Sounds arent as good because they rely heavily on its production. an album is songwriting + execution + production + many other things
Yes, I have always thought this to be true. Seems pretty obvious really. Not to say that the other members aren't talented.
My breakdown of the importance of each member is as follows:
Johnny Greenwood: 50%
Thom Yorke: 18%
Phillip Selway: 12%
Colin Greenwood: 10%
Ed O'Brien: 5%
The only reason why Colin Greenwood gets 5% more than Ed O'Brien is because he apparently helps with sampling (but we all know good and well that Johnny boy is the driving force on the electronic front)
I'd say thom yorke has a bigger input in general but yea Jonny is classically trained and a film composer, I think he must have a huge influence in how the songs are structured, etc.
animal collective do have songs where you can see brilliance but holy shit do they fail half of the time. the psychedelic/experimental tag is the best card they could pull out because they are allowed to make noisy and annoying tracks and people will give them a pass. besides, they are tremendously overrated by pitchfork.
well this hilarious face has won me over
But that's wrong you fucking retard. Radiohead just moans.
Pic related, I still listen to SOS. Why aren't they more popular?
Thom Yorke 25%
>Johnny Greenwood: 50%
>Thom Yorke: 18%
You're fucking high. The band have said, Thom writes the backbones for most of the songs and dictates the overall direction for the records. He's the US in their UN. Greenwood works around him, not on top of him.
