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.
Isn't this how most bands do it.

Don't worry I can see how this will turn out. A band member will die and "the real radiohead" will die with him. They'll replace him over the course of 4 or 5 albums with a couple different people that won't work. They'll wade through mediocre until they finally make the real ****-bomb. The one that sends a few of them to rehab, then their going to have fan backlash until they make something that resembles OK Computer because they brought on a producer thats bigger than they are.

Or maybe they'll become U2.

I would bet you 20 dollars Thom Yorke would kill himself before allowing his band to become U2

I think that's the nature of the type of fans they get

I find it hilarious when they will complain if you suggest that not everything they put out is a work of genius. It's not even as if I said it was bad , I just said it didn't do anything for me.

False: Most radiohead fans know Pablo Honey is garbage. And also, we didn't bring up Radiohead... someone else did. It's the same thing as if I came out and said I think Meddle is average.

No, I don't, I quite like it, but the idea is that a lot of people love that album, and to fault that album's fans for trying to defend it if it was brought up out of nowhere is ridiculous.
