5.0 out of 5 stars Radiohead have been a great landmark in my life, 9 May 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: A Moon Shaped Pool (MP3 Download)
As someone who grew up in the eighties and nineties, Radiohead have been a great landmark in my life. It is always great to feel that kick of excitement when new music is pushed out, and release schedules announced. With this though comes the worry that one is hankering to a time in the past when music was experienced in different ways, on different formats. With that worry, is the worry that the new work is experienced through the fug of nostalgia. As with all their records though, they seem to be forging there own path, a course neatly encompassing innovation and familiarity.

This record folds in influences from there own recent solo work (Jonny Greenwood's soundtrack work, Thom Yorke's electronic tinged solo records etc) being brought to bare on the 'classic' Radiohead sound. The work of relatively orthodox rock band setup trying hard to make something both original yet still based in songwriting convention. They have here, created a generally serene album full of varied orchestration, interesting but subdued guitar work, and some subtle use of synth and piano.

It is another subtle and interesting change of direction from a band continuing to brim with ideas, and a means to still express them in interesting ways.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant, 28 July 2013
Quite simply put, this was one of the most brilliant things british television has produced in the last fifteen or so years. Though much credit must be passed to David Peace for the fabulous quartet of books, on which this is based, the scriptwriters and directors have done a fantastic job in both slimming this down to a trilogy and evoking so wholly the era in which this was set. It should be noted that while there were three different directors involved, one for each feature length, the plot and character development does not suffer.

The quality of the acting and the production is first class, and the storyline is both gripping and (given many recent revelations about police collusions with the establishment) believable albeit grim.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant, 27 July 2006
This review is from: Different Damage (Audio CD)
This is a superb LP. There is not a weak song on the album, and the whole affair is wonderfully paced.

Ignore the 'emo' tag ascribed to this band - they are far from it- as this is just a lazy dismissal. This is just good 'alternative' (if one must label) song-writing, more in vain with post-punk/hardcore, latterday Fugazi (but more catchy).
