So, a close friend and I have been having this debate.
He feels that since In Rainbows that Radiohead have slowly been drifting towards "adult contemporary".
Especially with A Moon Shaped Pool.
He's a huge fan of the band.........they're his favorite band actually.
Anyway, i think the whole idea of them being classified as adult contemporary is fucking asinine.
If you look up current contemporary artists you see people like Adele, Ed Sheerhan, Kelly Clarkson, etc...........and then the older artists like Elton John, Barbara Streisand, and all that.
So, i was curious........what say you guys?
It's kind of a ridiculous argument, no?
He also sent a link from salon.com that asked if radiohead and wilco were the "new" adult contemporary.
I vehemently disagree with the notion. Radiohead are way too dark and weird for that genre.
