I am not gonna get ANY serious work done until they release this thing.

I have a feeling it's gonna be amazing.

Has RadioDread been discussed?

I was pretty impressed with their dub side of the moon release... thought this one worked well too. fitter happier etc is better than the original.

I LOVED it when it came out.  It was the best All Stars cover imo.  No Surprises from RadioDread was my ring tone for a couple of years.   It may be my favorite reggae record ever on top of that.  Sorry Jimmy.

100% chance some people whine because it doesn't sound like Creep. 
100% chance some people say it's pretentious garbage
100% chance the music media trips over their roosters raving about it
99.3% chance I listen to it 5 times the day it's released and love it, like pretty much everything else they've released

I don't think anyone is expecting Creep at this point unless they've been living on another planet for the last 20 years.

Some folks won't like it I'm sure, but they probably aren't RH fans to begin with.

Radiohead is the definition of an acquired taste. It's made by music nerds for music nerds.

Interesting.... Love the continued foray into the use of strings. Thom's voice still melts my brain sometimes. 

3 listens in... it's like they're experimenting with mounting tension much in the same way Tarantino attempted to do in Inglorious Basterds. 

I dig it.

One of the best songs they have done. In tandem with the video just a brutal send up of humanity. 10's across the board.

Stay in the shadows
Cheer at the gallows
This is a round-up
This is a low flying panic attack
Sing a song of sixpence that goes

Burn the witch
Burn the witch
We know where you live

Red crosses on wooden doors
If you float you burn
Loose talk around tables

Abandon all reasons
Avoid all eye-contact
Do not react
Shoot the messengers

This is a low flying panic attack
Sing a song of sixpence that goes
Burn the witch
Burn the witch
We know where you live
We know where you live

Is it just the one song?  The next song that Youtube plays is not part of the new album?  

I'm giving it a try

This is some heavy jonny. And the staccato chop chorus sound has a lot in common with the crackles and pops of dried wood burning. Really tweaked ####. So good.

Haven't heard anything about playing with an "orchestra", but given all Jonny's work with chamber/string players since he started scoring for PTA that doesn't seem very far-fetched. And there isn't much I wouldn't do to see that in the right venue. Like Radio City.

Will need more listens.  Intriguing for sure, but I have a feeling all the haters are going to be throwing this one in our faces.  Fine by me.

Love that tune. Already like it more than anything from King of Limbs (which was good, not great).  This band is so great.

I'm having trouble sleeping - should I start with track one of the new album or are there some top quality sleep-inducers later on?

I love older and even experimental Radiohead, but that was neither deep in visual content nor anything but inviting its fans to hopefully defend it against people throwing shade on it. 

It's really not that great so far.

New song is fantastic, IMO. Been stuck in my head after listening a few times  

This song has been teased by them for years. Mega fans on Reddit say they have plenty of material for a double album or more.

Right, but that assumes they will decide to record all of their previously-unrecorded songs for the same studio record, which has never been their thing.  On the last tour, they played Identikit and Skirting on the Surface, but I'd be surprised to see them make this forthcoming record.

I really like Identikit, but I'd still rather just hear all new stuff on the album.

I actually bothered to listen to it

pretty underwhelming but on par with what I expect from these guys

its sad because their musicians are talented but York is such a terrible vocalist it makes them unlistenable (similar to arcade fire)

There's already a really good album called Identikit btw. :shrug:

That took me way too long to get. I thought about it for an hour, googled it, returned nothing. 

But I've got it now. Just took some beer.

How does one acquire such bad taste in music? ;)

Years of practice I guess.  I don't deny they're a group of talented musicians, just just don't put out very many songs I'd want to listen to

Okay... the verdict is in. Dan, like many folks, doesn't like Radiohead. 

Let's move on :)

Pretty much nails it. People either love them or find them boring. Haven't met anyone who denies they are talented.

Was listening to some youtube stuff last night and found this stellar live rendition of Optimistic.  If you don't like radiohead or can't get into them, give this one song a listen. So good.

this is the exact version i have on my phone.   great version
