Thanks. I really try my best to do non-typical album reviews. Though one criticism someone gave me is I only review albums I think are fantastic. I sort of agree with them, because I only have to passion to write about things I really like or really hate. There aren't a lot of albums I've encountered recently that I hate, just boring or mediocre.

Plus I wouldn't get an album that you rated a 2/10 or something.
I would only get something that you said was "fantastic".

Tbh I'm not a fan of track-by-track reviews; I prefer reviews that focus on the album that whole, using specific examples to illustrate general points. But that said, I thought it was a good review of one of my favorite albums. There are some bits I don't really understand though ("Airbag" sounding industrial and "Karma Police" resembling Pixies songs mainly).

'this' album is always one of the following:

OK Computer
In The Aeroplane Over The Sea
Yankee Hotel Foxtrot
For me that album was Amputechture.

I don't think anything has suprised and delighted me as much as hearing paranoid android the first time. I'm an older music fan so I did not hear this albun in the context of youthful angst, but it still challenged, and changed me more than any other album in the last 10 years.

Hearing Paranoid Android convinced me that Radiohead would be a band worth listening to.

I haven't listened album in forever but I grabbed this one out the used bin for 10 bucks when I was 12 because I dug Karma Police and you're damn right I was the coolest kid on the block. This was back in the day before I started downloading an infinite amounts of music and would steal my mom's change to fee my addiction. Maybe if this album didn't mean something to me I'd think it was overrated and all hype.

Airbag and Climbing up the Walls are the best imo.

Exit Music and Climbing up the Walls for me. A bit burned out of Paranoid Android.
