Radiohead wouldn't know a tragic hero if they were cramming for their A levels, and their idea of soul is Bono, who they imitate further at the risk of looking even more ridiculous than they already do. So instead they pickle Thom Yorke's vocals in enough electronic marginal distinction to feed a coal town for a month. Their art-rock has much better sound effects than the Floyd snoozefest Dark Side of the Moon. But it's less sweeping and just as arid. B-


can he get anymore idiotic?
Since when is comparing an album to DSOTM an insult?

He's like the Christgau of obscure Prog except his site is actually useful and his reviews are longer than one sentence.

Christgau has nothing on the likes of Greil Marcus or (God forbid) Lester Bangs.

At least Christgau had the balls (or damaged hearing) to give a Justin Timberlake album an "A."
