Oh dear, how can I forget the all-time most overrated thing in the world: Radiohead.

I don't care how many 5 star reviews RS throws at them, or how innovative they are.

You may think you're cool by liking them, but you don't really like it. You feel hip placing it on the counter, it sounds cool to talk about with people you just met, but it's just noise. Crappy noise. Just admit it and throw on a Backstreet Boys CD. Sure, it's cheesy, but at least it has a chorus, keyboards, guitars, drums and it's not a wasteland filled with things that sound like a violin being played with a tire iron.

Radiohead takes something wonderful like music, and turns it into an unbearable experience.

People thought it was a big deal that they released an album online.

Well if you wait a bit, you'll be able to buy it at garage sales nationwide.


I just read that and then saw your post. Lol :)

I like Muse's music, but I'm gonna have to agree with Dom on Radiohead...

If Radiohead are overrated than what are Muse and other Radiohead-knockoffs considered? Whether you like Radiohead or not, there are millions of fans (many of them musicians themselves) who disagree. To me overrated is gaining success for a small amount of product/output. Bands who blow up on one single and have only 1-2 albums. A band that has endured 15+ years, 6+ albums, 3+ radical style changes and still has a huge following is far from overrated IMO.

And Fake Plastic Trees is my favorite Radiohead song ever.

Seriously. That post that Dom made was horrible. Radiohead is one the most consistently great bands around today, and In Rainbows was a great album. I just laughed at how ridiculous the notion of finding it at a garage sale was.

On topic...this is what is getting heavy play on the iPod for me lately.

Radiohead:
There There.
Jigsaw Falling Into Place
Nude
Reckoner
Idioteque

Queens of the Stone Age:
Tangled Up in Plaid
No One Knows
Mosquito Song

Interpol:
Hands Away
Untitled
Obstacle 2
NARC

I've also listened to About Today by The National a bunch of times recently, as well as their album Boxer.

The thing about Muse is that they definitely have a much more accessible sound because it's alot closer to what you hear on the radio usually now. The thing about that is that it seems like the quality of their music suffers for it sometimes. For example, I think my favorite Muse song would probably be Hysteria, which is a good song. However, it's pretty straightforward; it doesn't leave me with alot to think about after listening, nor is it all too incredibly unique. Good song, but the experience is a little shallow. That seems to be the case with alot of Muse's songs.

I have all of Jonathan Richman's releases in Ohio. When I fly back (probably next year), I'll look that one up for you.

"Way Down Yonder in the Minor Key" is by far my favorite song from the Mermaid Avenue releases.

Lost and Gone Forever - Album - Very cohesive, complete album centering around a single theme

Whenever we need to liven the mood up, my friends and I will always throw on Guster's "Meow Mix" of "Keep it Together." Nothing gets you ready for a night on the town like hearing "Homecoming King" in nothing but cat noises.

In fact -- when we were tailgating for DMB in Indy, we tried to counter all the people playing Dave in the parking lot (concert rule violation #3) by playing a little Meow Mix.

Had I known my post would have had this effect on you, I would have made it 10 times longer.

Now- is "great" a factual or subjective word?

Ah Radiohead, the bane of my existence, as my live-in GF LOVES them (and we go back and forth about it a bit) - but it's not due to a pretentious "I'm so cool and hip" front from her...rather I think people who are clinically depressed most of their lives are RH's biggest market demographic. If I'm depressed, and that happens, I would rather not revel in it I guess.

That said, I actually like their newer single "House Of Cards" - that's fine soft rock. But quite a bit of their music just doesn't jive with me at all (i.e., boring) - and my guitar teacher loves them too - but seems to be more interested in seeing them live than listening to them much. That said I find Coldplay's last two CD's soooo much more annoying and bad than anything RH has put out. Yeech.

Not much new, good music out right now, so been listenin' to:

The Black Angels
U2's "Boy" (wow what an underrated album)
Brendan Canning from BSS' solo CD
And uh, Metallica Master Of Puppets and the old Garage Days EP for nostalgic flair (I cannot stand anything by Metallica after "And Justice For All" and even that CD I am not overly fond of anymore). But "Puppets" is a a timeless classic.

A shocking choice from Baumer. I really like The National - and the Madison Theater show in Covington just made me like them that much more. Probably my favorite road trip music to listen to at this point.
