new radiohead album!

who has heard it?
what do you think?
reckon it's the real thing and radiohead are just pulling a major publicity stunt (with a name like 'hail to the thief' it's quite possible)?

so many questions! what a damn fine cd, even if it is just a bunch of not yet mixed, live recordings (pff, what rubbish!)

I have it and I like it very much! I have never heard any other Radiohead CD, so I can't compare it to any other, but it is a good CD.

I was amazed at the variety of music styles they have in just one CD! It was very impressive how they can switch up so much.

mm, it's a very differnet sound radiohead has explored with this album, not the best introduction to the band, a bit...out there.

i was very proud to hear that our alternative youth radio station here in australia (triple j) are the first station anywhere in the world to play songs from the new album, although radiohead still vehemently deny this is the real thing.

god i wish they'd come to oz!

Ah yes, Radiohead. I remember them. They used to be a really good rock and roll band, then something dreadful happened...

I just don't get those last two albums, especially Amnesiac. Most of it sounds like sonic sludge to me. I think the only song I liked on that one was I Might Be Wrong (the one in which they actually found their guitars).

Maybe it's just me...

well i think amnesiac is some of their best stuff yet, so i think it is probably just you Tom.

as colin quinn said, they just got weird.

i got the first "release" back in late march, then parts of the mixed tracks and the b-sides a few weeks ago. it sounds decent, but i like their older stuff better.

i saw them on snl a while back, their singer looked like a combination of schizophrenic and homeless. i wonder if he was going for that look.

I saw 'em at the field day festival in NY. It was initially supposed to be this big 2 day and night weekend event with something like 20 (or more?) bands on long island with overnight camping and the whole shebang-- but they canceled that, axed about half the acts and moved it to an all day affair at giant stadium. To add to the bum-out factor, it rained all day and they charged something like 5 bucks for ponchos which were more like flimsy garbage bags with makeshift holes. Then as the audience eagerly awaits Beck, the 3rd-to-last act, some guy comes on stage and says he 'took a spill' and wouldn't be able to perform. Turns out he was dancing to Underworld earlier in the day and slipped on the wet floor and broke his ribs. Then after a wait we had to endure the Beastie Boys forgetting their lyrics halfway through most of their songs. By the time that was over it was night and everyone was wet and freezing-- shivering from losing heat through my soggy socks is not one of the fondest memories I'll ever have.

Of course, it was all worth it. :wink:

okay, radiohead rocks live! the lights they used were absolutely brilliant, the computerized music was delightful, and thom yorke was absolutely full of energy on stage...completely worth the 2.5 hour drive and the crowds (i stood about six people back from the stage)...

I’ve never heard of that group before.
In an effort to upgrade my musical awareness from terminally un-hip to merely status-critical, I listened to a Good Charlotte song titled Girls & Boys. I thought it was very good music and loved the beat and guitar work.

I haven’t heard any other songs by this group but was wondering if anyone else likes this song.

[edit]
Dude, do you want to crash the mall?
