Hey LizardKing,  if DavisS_UK does not see your comment I will try and help you out in his absence.  I mentioned on another RH song that it is difficult to just listen to one RH song in isolation like you might pickup a newspaper and read one article.

I suggest you listen to some of their "Greatest Hits" type compilations on YouTube and settle down and listen to several tracks one after the other to get your ears tuned to their sound.

After that you will have been "aurally conditioned" and will be able to instantly recognise their sound and get into it more easily in the future.

However I recommend you listen to something upbeat after several RH tracks as they can tend to deflate your mood!

Good luck from the Emerald Isle!

 
Much thanks!  {#High-five}

Good idea to start with uTube vids and see where it takes me.  And thanks for the "don't let too much RH get you down" warning....I'll be careful.

Cheers from the Emerald City (Seattle) and Long Live RP!!  PEACE OUT

Hi DavidS_UK - can you help an RPBro out here?  I've been trying like hell to like RH, and well for the most part I can't get into their stuff.  This track is pretty good to my ears on first listen.  I also like Alt-J and Muse, although DM has been a hard sell for me too (reminds me of Pet Shop Boys, both of which I actively DISLIKED in the day cuz I was into hip-hop/rap then...) all that to say my ears have been opening over the last 11+ years (thanks to RP!) which is why I'm asking for a good intro to RH from a fan.

Oh those discordant yet haunting melodies cutting in on the right speaker..... awesome

Still, the spooky atmospherics are going with this one.

I generally think that all their drum'n'bass-y stuff smells pretty bad now.  I would like them to move on so I can buy more of their stuff.  I appreciate that they won't change just to please me, though.  But it would be nice if they would.

The other track on this release, Daily Mail, seems much better to me and by comparison this sounds pretty average for Radiohead.  They've set themselves such a high bar over the years with consistently original and rich material though - how could they keep it up forever?

I'm a fan of Radiohead but so much of their recent output sounds extremely bland and lifeless, this being a prime example.

 
Really?

Like RH but not enough to order the CDs.  Bland and lifeless is not what I would use to describe this song or the music.  On occasion a little directionless maybe?

As for ripping off Genesis....  I dunno ..... I can hear the influence or imagine the song writer being influenced by Genesis as were many other bands.   Does not inspire a specific Genesis song for this cowboy.

anybody else hear some early Genesis in this?

Yes - Definitely... there is a recurring riff lifted exactly from an early Genesis song.
It is so obvious that I came here specifically looking to see if I was the only one who noticed.
I am not a big listener of RH, I like some of what I hear and also find a lot of it unoriginal and milking tired themes.
I AM a very big fan of early Genesis however and this goes way beyond "inspiration".
They have expanded the range and length of the riff but t is a note for note copy of Mike Rutherford's original.

 
And what early Genesis song did they copy here?

  Bill might be noting the similarities, right? That could be why he links them, which doesn't seem the least bit ironic.  For what it's worth, I love this song but really don't like the Muse offering.  Go figure.

Wow.. totally unremarkable. Not even going to rate this one.. it inspires no emotion or thought, at all, not even bad or critical.
 
Pretty much my feelings about RH... irrelevant and pointless (just as my opinion, I know).
