this seems like a never-ending theme with them


Yep, I don't think there is one era that didn't have this thing going on. Maybe In Rainbows?

ah but not about the here and now or very recent past. like i'd expect to hear about this kind of thing during the promotion of LP9, not while they're still in this era. the headline might have been 'how RH learned to rock again' but the article itself appears to catch Radiohead before they've really resolved the issues they're talking about.

oh, like they'd slag off TKOL while promoting LP9? yeah i guess so. i reckon it's more like two different things though - sounds like they're perfectly proud of the music and what they're doing with it, but didn't develop much of a plan before releasing it wrt promotion and how they'd go forward as a band. like, it's not like they're shitting on the album (yet) and, well, thankfully i think they'll skip that phase completely with IR. but they always have this feeling of doubt surrounding their music and what they're making and how they're conducting business, but with IR they seemed comfortable with their plans after releasing it (as opposed to the fraught process recording it), while now they're still worried they didn't do this one right. which they didn't, but oh well

I enjoyed reading this... Certainly added somethig to my view on tkol...

Perhaps the guy is "trying too hard" but did a decent job to get new fans into the band... Went off track a lot of times to recite facts we all know by now
My prayer to you is that you do all the things you set out to do, and live your life the way you love...

some things will never wash away

pretty funny people talking about the interviewer "trying too hard"...............it's David Fricke.
He's an iconic music journalist and has been interviewing and reviewing the biggest bands for decades.
i dont think he was trying too hard.............the title of the article is kinda lame but thats it.
and as for the facts that "we all know by now", well not everyone is obsessed with radiohead like all the people on here.
he's writing for a larger audience.

not just obnoxious "know-it-all" radiohead fanboys.

It's written in an old-fashioned style like the old days of Rolling Stone, when the writers would follow the band around for a while, hang out, see a few shows, and then report on the experience. David Fricke also did a pretty positive review of the Miami show and it seems like he is a big fan. I was actually pleased to see that he did this article because he is from that legendary old school of music journalism. I loved my Rolling Stone subscription, once upon a time.

here here! to both of you! yeah, fricke is a legend. a wonky older guy now for sure, but is a champion of many great bands, radiohead and wilco namely in my book. hes goofy and a bit of an "embarrassing dad" at times, but still really neat. i heard a quote from thom once about them hanging out together around the kid a time. sounds like they may be pals. fricke trying too hard? please, people. more like fricke being fricke, an enthusiast of music, through and through.

but hey, you can't expect much on a board full of hyperbolic, reductive, obnoxious, dismissive kids. aka.........the new generation of radiohead fans.

wasn't complaining about him mentioning those facts, thought was nice to feed info for those who aren't insane as some of us here...
reading the article made me hope some would change their minds about tkol... i hear lots of complains about it, but i thinks it's a beautiful album

I'm one of those who doesn't know much about Radiohead's biography so it's all news to me. I try to avoid too much knowledge of my favorite artists' personal lives, because if they turn out to be assholes it might spoil my love of the art. I like that Thom and the other guys don't embarrass themselves on twitter or at public events like so many celebrities. And it must be hard to get a good interview with Thom, because he seems to go out of his way to avoid attention.

From the looks of your join date, one might assume you to be a Rainbower and not so long ago you were the new generation of radiohead fans. Though you may be older than some people here, from your one comment your just as reductive and dismissive as those whom you were just critiquing.

What's up with that cover though? Not a fan of that weird "blending" effect they did with each of the members. Definitely a hack job in that respect.
