A look back at my listening habits in 2003.
In Rainbows promised a renaissance for Radiohead, as did ‘These Are My Twisted Words’ and ‘Harry Patch’ – what you have here is an inconsistent EP with too much padding.
Selway has stepped out from behind the drumkit to show the world the full extent of his talent.
Breaking new ground? Cynical way of leaking their album? Who cares! It’s Radiohead, and even though the bit rate is rubbish, I have no idea what the proper artwork looks like (which annoys the completist in me) and I’m still not sure whether I ought to count Nigel Godrich as a member or not… It’s Radiohead!
Incredible. Life defining. Un-categorisable. Genre bashing, era smashing, generally mind-bendingly good. A Pink Floyd for our time. Spot the quote I nicked. This album doesn’t carry a health warning, but it should. “Radiohead can seriously damage your sanity, and should be listened to in overindulgent quantities”, or some such guff.
