Ok, dear reader(s), I’m going to come clean: I don’t like In Rainbows at all. In fact, I’m going to go so far as to say that I actually dislike it. And I’ve worked out why: Thom Yorke’s voice. Truth be told, I’ve always found Yorke to be an annoying little toad, but now that I’ve realised that his voice really gets on my nerves, I’m happy to forget about him completely. Man, I should have knocked him over that time when I had the chance (he walked right out in front of my bike, the fool). *
I was excited when I heard about Yorke’s solo album – The Eraser – coming out and I couldn’t understand why I didn’t get into it at all. Now I have my answer. There’s no doubt that OK Computer and The Bends are exemplary albums, Thom Yorke and all, but my interest stops there.
Take it easy Radiohead; it was fun while it lasted.
* I’m joking. Don’t have a go. I wouldn’t ever willingly knock someone over. Even someone that deeply irritating.
