Radiohead - Unique Songs
Posted 30 October 2012 - 05:36 PM
Life in a glasshouse
Motion Picture Soundtrack
A wolf at the door
this is a pretty great list. I really wish there were more songs like A Wolf at the Door and Life in a Glasshouse. I feel like The King of Limbs is the only album where all the songs sort of feel like they're very closely related. With albums like Kid A and Hail to the Thief, you never knew what was coming next. I love TKOL, but it's just a bit more predictable than their other albums.

To me it seems like the band often chooses the opener slot for their "unique" songs, often with a sound that stands out from the rest of the album or that is different from their discography altogether.
Consider Airbag, 15 Step and Bloom. These have a sound that really stand out on their respective albums. What's interessting is that they all have a pretty big emphasis on the drum section as the driving force behind their unique sound.
