Eh, it's not really a "fact". I find all of Kid A memorable and I thought In Rainbows was brilliant. And I find the melodies and rhythms they create to be very catchy and evoke emotion. So, not exactly "boring"The sad fact about Radiohead is that they've barely made a memorable track since OK Computer. Which was almost 20 years ago. And the few that do stand out, e.g. Everything in its Right Place and Reckoner, are mostly just good for the first 30 seconds before getting boring. They don't really have it in them to write great melodies, so they compensate by layering tons of 'complexity' and conceptual experimentation onto the records (and their career in general).
I disagree with the idea that you have to leave everything good about your past behind to stay relevant. Other guitar bands such as Suede and Maximo Park have incorporated more electronics into their albums while still keeping plenty of stripped-down rock songs and in the best cases, combining both within the same songs- and their last couple of albums have debuted in the top ten just fine.You know what happens to those who refuse to "go along with the world"? They vanish.
What I mean is, in everything and I mean everything, if you don't "evolve" you're left behind. Our world is mad and it's in constant changing.
For example, industry, once they were manual, now they're all about "robots" and machines, and those industries that kept their old ways, what happened to them? They lost their track, they vanished.
Same happens in music industry. Once they used, what some of you like to call "real instruments", now it's all about computers. Coldplay only has one option if they want to keep in the music industry, go with the flow.
We know. You say the same thing every week.so its been about what 3 weeks since the album? The only song stuck on me is AIMH everything else is just eh... This album lacks depth, with other albums I find new things to love in every listen but with GS it's very straightforward, it lacks depth. Very sad for coldplay...
?errr.. i dont follow... Every single band/artist will/should go for computer electronic sounds or they will just vanish? So for example, Mumford&Sons who are huuugely popular (and many other folky bands), will too?You know what happens to those who refuse to "go along with the world"? They vanish.
Same happens in music industry. Once they used, what some of you like to call "real instruments", now it's all about computers. Coldplay only has one option if they want to keep in the music industry, go with the flow. Don't believe me? MX explains my point. (I'm not saying it's a bad album)
