By the same token those people who praise it would need to find some evidence that their opinion is more valid than the naysayers. You can't have a strict set of standards which only apply to the group you disagree with.

I was talking in general rather than just about those 4 bands. And of course it works on a debut for some bands, but for a lot of bands it doesn't but people still want something to write about & find the 'next big thing' so they do overhyped these albums. So in effect it is perfectly relevant.

And me listening to the band since 1992 and having an opinion on it counts for nothing? I need mathematical proof of fuck all to express an opinion. Don't like it? then don't read it.

Track by Track review:

In The King of Pretend:
Oh my god, this is amazing, there's at least 50 different vocals hooks here with great songwriting:

"I am in the king of Pretend
I like to Pretend in the King
Pretend the King of In"

Repeated over and over.

Weekend Bodysnatcher:

An instrumental track with all four band members contributing a minute of music. This five minute epic is the second longest and most interesting song on the album, there is almost a drum solo, but the drummer decided against it. The guitarist also almost played a few notes in the blues scale but again decided against it.

Arid/Threadbare:

A minimalist track, the vocalist sings about his life growing up in the slums in England despite being from the Lakes District. The guitarist plays the same note over and over and the bassist has been fired by this point in the album.

Communist Reckoner:

A tasty electronic number, the bassist by this point has been replaced with a programmer, and they've managed to make something very unique for 1970. All the band members sing here creating a lovely vocal harmony.

Venus In Furs:

The band try their hand at a Velvet Underground song with their own jangly indie guitar riff. The singer Minces about mumbling the words while the drummer decides to play in 17/2 time.

Untitled:

A 1 minute band jam with the sound of the producer shooting himself in the background followed by laughs from the entire band.

Of Jigsaw, Falling and Place:

The big leading single from the album, recorded underwater, if you listen very closely you can hear severl screams as the guitarist is shocked over and over again. This is by far his best guitar playing, he's all over the place and manages to get some very interesting sounds out.

Partake:

A ballad with a difference, not wanting to sound stale or anything they've decided to play exactly the same song that was on their last album, but with different lyrics.

Reddish:

The band tries to replay the entire album in one song, sampling also from their earlier material. This Epic closer lasts a massive five minutes and fifty seconds, a record for the band. They didn't know if they should include it in the album because "our fans might not be able to appreciate such a long song" but I'm so glad they did.

Score: 10/10 a total indie masterpiece


That album actually sounds pretty interesting...although to fully mimic an indie release you would need the standard 11-12 tracks...

Although this seems to me like someone's jealous that the mainstream underground public doesn't recognize the relevance of 1970's prog...just a thought...

And I would also like to state despite my criticism of this post, I still find In Rainbows dull as tits.

The band wanted to set itself apart from normal indie releases, and as such decided to only do nine.

Also why are people reading too much into this?

I saw that picture and was like "dude I have to review this album for the lulz".

i honestly thought this was real funny despite loving NMH and radiohead, i think people may be taking this a bit personally just because of who its coming from. if it was posted by someone who is an obvious indie lover then this post would have no sense of actual disdain for the parodied bands? not to put down comus or the post, like i said i thought it was awesome

People rip the piss out of 'clicky' scenes all the time. I love Metal and the amount of times that the scene gets ripped is unbelievable but you gotta have a laugh about it now and again. Just because someone is ripping into it does that automatically mean that it's lessened your liking for the bands? It shouldn't matter one bit. If you like the bands then that's it. Get some thick skin people and if you wanna get your own back rip the crap out of metal bands. I am sure Comus would see the funny side too.
