Same same

Review: Radiohead Revels in the Key of Dread.

Well, I dread hearing a Radiohead song, and I find it dreadful when someone accidentally torments my ears with one.

They are the band that I find it most inexplicable that anyone can like. Well, there’s the old rancor-ready standby Nickelback, but at least all their songs sound the same so the pain is predictable.

With Radiohead, every song is terrible in its own unique way, with its own special torment to be inflicted on the unwary and unsuspecting.

To be fair, I saw Radiohead live in 1993 and they were surprisingly good. But that’s because they sounded nothing like their albums and nothing like they do now.
