Radiohead - A Moon Shaped Pool
« Thread started on: May 10th, 2016, 08:51am »
Radiohead has returned with the apparently very good A Moon Shaped Pool. I have yet to buy this album but I'm certainly looking forward to hearing it (though I did listen to one song, Burn The Witch, and it was decent). It took me a good while to get into Radiohead, and though I wouldn't call myself a big fan of them, it's nice to get a new album from them at last. Reviews are very strong right now so I'm expecting a really enjoyable record. I love the album cover and the rather elegant name.

I have friends who love Radiohead and are raving over this. I've not managed to get into Radiohead properly but I feel like I ought to. I've got OK Computer which I think is pretty good good but also suffers in my mind by comparison with the contemporaneous Porcupine Tree releases; I've read that Steven Wilson was influenced by Radiohead (The Bends gets a mention on Stupid Dream, and I can certainly hear similarities to OK Computer in certain songs) but I will always prefer PT. Still, I've given A Moon Shaped Pool a stream once through and it sounded pretty good so I'm willing to give it a try.
It looks like the physical release isn't happening until mid-June which is a bit annoying.
Was it you or was it me? Or was it he or she?
NB: despite what my name may suggest, I was not born in 1972
