yes, yes, yes...love, love, love this CD. When hearing Idioteque...I bet Aphex
wishes he´d had access to Thom Yorke´s voice for some of his own material when
he heard that one.
What´s your conclusion?
Brilliant! For a stadium band (a workmate pointed out a pair of tickets to
the sole US show getting $5100 on Ebay - before the end of bidding!) to go
from the already strange "OK Computer" to the even less approachable
weirdness of "Kid A" and then manage to make the album work as music and as
commercial product is a rather astonishing trick. Only now, on perhaps my
fifth or sixth listen, is the addictive catchiness of the songs emerging
from the fascinating wall of sound. So I suppose it is worth wading
through thousands of leather trousers and flashpots in order to find one
set of rockstars actually challenging their audience with interesting music
and getting away with it. This one is joining Emak Bakia, Hood, Tram, and
Piano Magic in my favorite pop music of this year - so far.
