    1 Radiohead - OK Computer
    (1997)
    Using the textured soundscapes of The Bends as a launching pad, Radiohead delivered another startlingly accomplished set of modern guitar rock with OK Computer. The anthemic guitar heroics present on Pablo Honey and even The Bends are nowhere to be heard here. Radiohead have stripped away many of the obvious elements of guitar rock, creating music that is subtle and textured yet still has the feeling of rock & roll. Even at its most adventurous -- such as the complex, multi-segmented "Paranoid Android" -- the band is tight, melodic, and muscular, and Thom Yorke's voice effortlessly shifts from a sweet falsetto to vicious snarls. It's a thoroughly astonishing demonstration of musical virtuosity and becomes even more impressive with repeated listens, which reveal subtleties like electronica rhythms, eerie keyboards, odd time signatures, and complex syncopations. …

  • Yes, it's back!! October Ninth's Top Ten

    14 Oct 2006, 07:47 by Sarey

    That's right folks, my top ten breakdown is back, and better than ever! Actually, I don't know that it's better, I just like to make myself sound better than I actually am. It's quite a serious problem.

    Anyway, onward!

    10. Something Corporate

    Look at that. Emo! I'm not entirely sure why Something Corporate managed to get into the top ten, but nevertheless I did enjoy them this week. Only Ashes was a favourite. Hey, maybe it's because I was surfing through Wikipedia and found Andrew McMahon's page and read about his leukemia. Maybe I really do care deep down?

    Naaaaaaah.

    9. Alice in Chains

    What can I say? I am forever an AiC convert. Layne Staley and Jerry Cantrell are one hell of a pair. No one will ever be able to replicate the Alice in Chains sound. EVER. Even if they do reform with a new front man. IT WON'T BE THE SAME!

    This week I went back to Dirt. And what an album it is. Dark, full of despair and full of gems. Would?, Down in a Hole and one of my most favourite songs ever, Rooster.

    Step 2: Post lyrics from the first 50 songs that are played, no matter how embarassing.
    Step 4: Strike/bold out the songs when someone guesses both artist and track correctly.

    with a thrill wrapped up inside it
    and try as you might to fight it
    love will get you in the end

    03.
    in my life, why do i give valuable time
    to people who don't care if i live or die
    Heaven Knows I'm Miserable Now


    04.
    betty said she prayed today
    for the sky to blow away
    or maybe stay; she wasn't sure
    River Man


    05.

    when stars collide
    you can feel the universe
    behind your eyes
