As hyped and talked about as they are, they're still an amazing group of artists that have consistently made groundbreaking contributions to [pop] music.
People get caught up on, say, the electronics not being as adventurous as autechre or aphex twin, but I'd honestly contend that if they actually wanted to, they could've made music like that. But that would be missing the point. The point of radiohead's music often lies in restraint, especially when it comes to experimentation. And proper restraint, as genius as it is, is something rarely recognized.
>>61758357 I hate shit like this. Actually contribute to the album's discussion instead of putting the onus on everybody else to shit on it.
And yeah, Radiohead are really quite awful. In the same way as Rammstein appropriate superficial, largely extramusical industrial elements to mask their buttrock, Radiohead appropriate superficial, largely extramusical elements to mask their butt-pop. They're also an example of a group that tries to force commercial ideas on the nebulous music underground rather than trying to bring experimental ideas into the mainstream.
