Music - Weird Fishes/Arpeggi

I just bloody love Radiohead, especially these more complex arpeggiated arrangements ( la Guitar Craft...)



Just sayin'

Re: Music - Weird Fishes/Arpeggi

Radiohead are fantastic, my favourite by far. What do you think of the new one?

Re: Music - Weird Fishes/Arpeggi

Yeah.... RH sort of hit straight on the head how/what I was feeling at the end of the last century (now THAT is a sentence that makes me feel special, hehe...).
OKC is still tops in terms of eliciting my emotional response(s)
In Rainbows would be #2
Everything else (including TY's solo album) just falls in place thereafter in no specific order.
KOL makes me curious about what will be included with the boxed set (which I obviously ordered) - maybe what I've downloaded is just the preamble to a more extensive piece of work and maybe it is just what it is.
Most of the songs feel familiar, with Codex being the one that reaches out to me in the most compelling manner.

Re: Music - Weird Fishes/Arpeggi

for me OKC followed by The Bends, though I like all of their stuff. In Rainbows is fantastic as is the bonus disc, which I felt could be nicely mixed alternately with The King of Limbs, check out the link of a thread I started on Mortigi Tempo. Codex, funnily enough, I have virtually on repeat today, awesome. Other favs, Little by Little, Feral and Lotus Flower.

Saying I have a favourite album also contradicts my other view of their music, and that is radiohead is it's own Genre is the best way to decribe them. I have over the years tried to decide which is my favourite album but basically couldn't decide however came up with this. If I were to choose a favourite album, I can say that there is no 'album' as such, for me it's a steady progression of musical genius with intermittance, hence one constant art form expressed in music. hmmmm

Re: Music - Weird Fishes/Arpeggi

KOL, their music progressed nicely however I prefer the heavy southern rock from Youth and Young Manhood. They are a bit too mainstream and seem to be playing more to that crowd these days, so I've held off the new one. Aha shake heartbreak was a total shift never to be further developed.

Not sure I'm following you there...
"KOL" is King Of Limbs (the album) whereas you mean a band by the name of...?

whoops, I thought you meant Kings of Leon, aka KOL...
okay, I don't know what to expect either from the box set. In Rainbows box set had the art work, a couple of vinyls and of course the legendary bonus disc, maybe they'll surprise us as always.

BTW where can I find (i.e. do you have it) the live unplugged vids of those canadian concerts (Just JG + TY in duo) that briefly appeared a couple of years ago?
Unfortunately they have since disappeared from Youtube... :-/

Re: Music - Weird Fishes/Arpeggi

I don't have those vids however I have a bbc live on Jools Holland and a Glastonbury vid. Audio, I have a Kroq acoustic set, Manic the Hedgehog-On a Friday recording containing 20 songs, quite a few b sides, and of course the whole album collection plus single releases.
