Default Thom Yorke - The Eraser

Got it today ..... think it`s great.

It`s really odd , it sounds like Radiohead , but it doesn`t. It`s almost kind of more minimalist.

Or if you want that in English it sounds like Radiohead with all the guitars taken out.Don`t know if this means the new Radiohead album will be more guitar orientated or not.

Anyway , I like it.

I haven't listened to it enough, as I said before. Atoms For Peace is amazing though. Singing Falsetto like that is incredibly hard.

apparently the new radiohead album is to go back to basics and focus on guitar led melodies. I see the eraser as the evolution from Amnesiac and Kid A, its a continuation of Yorkes obsession with studio wizadry. I was slightly underwhelmed on first listen though, it must be said.

Yorke's new solo offering is very impressive imo. If I have one criticism, it's that he's not travelled far enough away from Radiohead territory. To those not familiar with his/ their music, a first listen might not enable one to differentiate between the two parties.

For me, Radiohead are perhaps the most important development to hit the indie music scene in the past decade (and more), although I suspect that I may be saying a similar thing about The Arcade Fire in years to come. Since Thom is such a major influence on Radiohead output, perhaps it was inevitable that similarities between solo and band work are so evident.

Here's hoping of a change in style (even if it does drift back to more traditional type guitar work) in the upcoming Radiohead album. Thom and the lads are no doubt aware of the need to reinvent themselves periodically in order to keep their competitors from snapping at their heels.

I agree. It reminds me a lot of Radiohead, but it almost seems to have a softer side.

It's pretty sweet, it feels like Kid A mixed with David Grubbs or Jim O'Rourke, more subdued and "minimalistic" than Kid A and it also feels more personal. Great start to a promising solo career.
