i'll take a quiet life, a handshake of carbon monoxide

remember when radiohead used to be so fucking good? john just played "let down" last night and i almost forgot. they used to be on my top five even. ok computer was so amazing it hurt. i wonder what happened.
my brother used to not be able to listen to karma police because it would make him cry every time. that's the saddest, sweetest thing ever.

i know exactly what you mean.

ok computer was a very big album for me, and even through kid a i counted them among my favorite-favorites...but i don't know what happened after that.

their music is still excellent, really, but perhaps there's something in their posture and attitude that hasn't changed since the beginning...and i don't know, i found myself getting over it.

they're like a teenager saying "nobody understands me" over and over. or something.

sort of sad.

that album is still phenomenal, however.

the radiohead is like a cool club that i cannot get into because i just don't have that much...that much ...well, now i don't know why i can't get in there.

thanks, bona, for saying what i was too embarassed to say out loud (staring at my shoes, biting my finger)

i felt that way about Kid A for almost 2 years after it come out, then one day after a total paradigm shift in my life I gave it a listen again and it was total epiphany, i loved it and the subsequent albums, although i must say In Rainbows was not as conceptually exciting as the last one.
