that track is hot as hell; i’m glad someone else mentioned it
that’s exactly what andy kaufman would say.
Oh whoops, I’m pretty sure the vocals in “Climbing Up the Walls” aren’t modified with electronics, but the rest of those still work. T__T
I think “marred” is a bit of an overstatement… There are plenty of songs which feature either clean or lightly modified vocals from Thom – ultimately, I think the choice has to be made according to what’s best for any given track. Without vocal effects, “Climbing Up the Walls” wouldn’t be nearly as unnerving; “How to Disappear Completely” wouldn’t be the heartbreaking, ethereal masterpiece that it is (nor would ‘Kid A’ as a whole, for that matter, which is a terrifying thought); the studio version of “Like Spinning Plates” wouldn’t be half as fascinating as it is; “Feral” would be the most perplexing song title of 2011; “Pull/Pulk Revolving Doors” wouldn’t be… rev…um, revolutionary…? Anyway, there are tons of examples, but regardless of fan preferences, Radiohead – Thom Yorke, especially – have made it clear over the past twelve or thirteen years that they’re highly invested in experimenting with electronics, and they’ve generally been doing whatever they want with their music and being ridiculously innovative for about two decades now, so… impactful concluding statement that isn’t coming to mind at the moment.
No one is actually going to read this. My new prison is shame.
wait, what about “the black angel’s death song”…
(…he cried nearly two months after anyone gave a shit)
i thought it was “no windows” for like, a year and a half following the release of ‘burst apart.’ at least i’m in good company…?
…aaaand then my eyes gently, steadily welled up with tears for a minute and twenty-three seconds. T__T
