How is Oh My Gawd a bad album? And Radiohead still released Kid A, Amnesiac, Hail to the Thief, and In Rainbows in this decade and they were all good and consistent.

One thing that pisses me off about music: the radio. I feel like anytime I listen to it its either an incredibly crappy song or a song I've heard 500x in my life just from listening to the radio. When I find that I know lyrics to these horrible, recycled songs, my brain begins to hurt.

I don't know how anyone could consider In Rainbows mediocre.

I guess since people have such high expectations of the band that anything less than a perfect 10 is "mediocre".

Give them a break, nobody can recreate the same success of that one album over and over again, it's a great album, I hate when people always have to compare a band's album to their previous work instead of just judging the album on it's own.

I'm sorry but what I've heard from The Feelies is just incredibly awful.

If you look at how I originally defined mediocre I didn't define it as 'Bad' I defined it as something that doesn't move me enough to reach a decision on whether it's good or bad.

And that's exactly how I feel about In Rainbows. It's nothing i've not heard Radiohead do already and to be honest I found it boring. For the past 2 albums I feel radiohead have found a sound & they're sticking to it. Thom Yorke's solo album had pretty much the same sound too. I've heard them do the same thing 3 times now and it's getting boring. And for a band that was known for being one of the most progressive rock bands of the last decade or so that's a concern.

Sorry Radiohead fanboys , In Rainbows bored me.

So what you're saying is songs like reckoner and house of cards sound like 2+2=5 and wolf at the door? I think HTTT had a completely different sound to it than In Rainbows.

I think HTTT was a perfect mix of their Bends era sound and Kid A sound

The Flaming Lips, Bjork, Blur, Nirvana, were all excellent. I am not into Radiohead that much, not huge on Yorke but I think the 90s had better music than the 80s. I like Nick Cave and Cure a little, but the Flaming Lips (and Radiohead) seem to be much better than a lot of the stuff the 80s was pumping out. Any specific bands you think are incredible from the 80s?
Bjork was from the 80s...she used to front The Sugarcubes(and I didnt like her then either). Didn't Blur have a song/album from the 80s? Didnt the Flaming Lips start off in the 80s?

Bands i find "incredible from the 80s":

Depeche Mode
The Cure
The Smiths
Thompson Twins
New Order
NIN
The Chameleons
Icehouse
Violent Femmes
Billy Idol
Adam Ant
A Flock of Seagulls
Christian Death
Red Lorry Yellow Lorry
Lords of the new church
Falco
Kraftwerk(from the 70s actually)
Gary Numan
The Cars
Faith No More
Joy Division
Wire
Throbbing Gristle
March Violets
Talk Talk
FGTH
Fadgadget
Bauhaus
Siouxsie and the banshees
Xymox
Echo & the Bunnymen


Need I go on?

It wasn't all **** in the '80s. It wasnt all Dexy's Midnight Runners and Rick Springfield, there were some excellent, quality bands that were in the 80's. Of course there were some real ****ters, and some enormous dreck, but there was ALOT of ****ing amazing music as well.
