Love Airbag EP so much

The Velvet Fog called me a motherfucker (Sandy), Monday, 8 September 2014 17:26 (six years ago) link

i used to stare at the airbag ep cover when i bought it (probably because i had a total of 8 or 9 CDs at that point and nothing to do) and wonder why IN THE MIDDLE OF THE FLOOR and POLICE were underlined. looking at it now for the first time in forever, they just look like links!

interesting vote distribution to have KOL land above Airbag despite having only 1 more vote and 0 v 2 #1s

Roberto Spiralli, Monday, 8 September 2014 18:24 (six years ago) link

They really should have released an Airbag/My Iron Lung equivalent of Kid Amnesiac b-sides.

Van Horn Street, Monday, 8 September 2014 18:28 (six years ago) link

For sure. Choosing 7-8 b-sides from that era to create a fake EP would be a fun process

Of the remaining 4 albums, this being ILM, I have no honest idea of how they'll be ranked. I'd go with Bends-IR-OKC-Kid A but who knows.

― Karl Malone

Problem is Airbag is from 1998 and My Iron Lung 1994 so they're not really from the same era. Itch is from 1994 too... maybe a great EP could be created with Itch+My Iron Lung+The Bends b-sides which are all dated 1994/1995, here's the list:

The Bends "B-Sides"
----------------------
1. Lewis (Mistreated)
2. Maquiladora
3. How Can You Be Sure?
4. Banana Co.
5. Molasses
6. Killer Cars
7. India Rubber
8. You Never Wash Up After Yourself
9. Talk Show Host
10. Punchdrunk Lovesick Singalong
11. Bishop's Robes
12. Lozenge of Love
13. The Trickster
14. Permanent Daylight

Thought Kid A would win this one. More #1 votes but I guess there's a couple of ILM users who didn't even consider it in their top 5 albums.

Moka, Monday, 8 September 2014 20:10 (six years ago) link

Bleuch. ALL WRONG.

But I only have myself to blame as I got really sick and forgot to vote.

If the albums had been ordered according to how many points their songs received in the tracks ballot, it would've been:

01. OK Computer
02. Kid A
03. The Bends
04. Hail to the Thief
05. In Rainbows
06. Amnesiac
07. The King of Limbs
08. Pablo Honey

nate woolls, Monday, 8 September 2014 20:22 (six years ago) link

how many total ballots again? did everyone vote OKC?

Roberto Spiralli, Monday, 8 September 2014 20:23 (six years ago) link

I'm viewing that as essentially a Kid A/OKC tie. With 19 #1 votes, you probably wouldn't have to tinker with the scoring system much to put Kid A in first.

jmm, Monday, 8 September 2014 20:24 (six years ago) link

yeah, like making #1 votes the only ones that count

post...aftermath (Sufjan Grafton), Monday, 8 September 2014 20:26 (six years ago) link

Album rankings pretty much OTM, except I'd place Pablo Honey over The King Of Limbs. Say what you like, but as flawed as their debut is, it still boasts some (in my opinion) good material (and no, I'm not thinking about the obvious here either), and has a youthful energy to it that their later material lacks. I guess it's kinda like their Adolescent Sex to Kid A's Tin Drum, or whatever. The King Of Limbs is obviously more "exploratory" (for want of a better term) and more in the art-rock vein, but while it sounds beautiful it places, the songs at their core aren't really up to snuff IMO.

Welcome To (Turrican), Monday, 8 September 2014 20:35 (six years ago) link

amnesiac is far too low imo. my #1.

I wish I voted in this, but tbh the biggest reason I didn't was because I'd feel compelled to listen to Pablo Honey for the 1st time for the sake of fairness/completion. I couldn't face it.

I thank the voters for validating my opinion that TKOL just kind of sucks.

ArchCarrier, Friday, 12 September 2014 12:02 (six years ago) link

Yeah, I'm kind of baffled at EIIRP and TT finishing 2+1; I like both, but would never think of them as absolute favourites. I guess EIIRP was the first thing a lot of people heard of Kid A, cos there was no lead single and it opened the album, so it perhaps has some epochal weight because of that. And I remember friends who weren't enormous Radiohead geeks loving There There, whereas it nonplussed me for several months. I know it gets a lot of love from here, though.

same. you could cut the top 2 off the poll entirely and it would make way more sense imo.

also "Let Down" is eye-rolling and banal to me the way "High and Dry" is to most of you guys.

Relistining to a lot of the tracks that places, and I just don't care about Hail to the Thief and In Rainbows at all. On the other hand, I listened to The King of Limbs, and still find it very touching. A track like Give Up the Ghost is very beautiful.

There's no stopping the thetans from hopping (Mr Andy M), Friday, 12 September 2014 17:16 (six years ago) link

dog latin's "There There" post (and WilliamC's likening of the drums to those on "I Can't Explain") sent me scurrying back for another listen. It's much better than I remember -- I didn't relisten to HTTT for the poll, and hadn't heard the song in 10 years. It still wouldn't have made my ballot, and it's not something I'd play to convince someone of Radiohead's greatness, but I'm digging it now.

Montgomery Burns' Jazz (Tarfumes The Escape Goat), Friday, 12 September 2014 17:28 (six years ago) link

actually I don't remember if "Faust Arp" is good or bad, I was just playing on the old ILM meme.

Actually Thom's "wtf is he singing these aren't even words"ness is pretty heavily in evidence on Creep. I've no idea wtf he's singing before the "run run run RUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUuuuuuuuuuuuuun" bit. Not a clue.

Hey Bob (Scik Mouthy), Friday, 19 September 2014 09:08 (six years ago) link

I hear it as "she's running out again"

monoprix à dimanche (dog latin), Friday, 19 September 2014 09:13 (six years ago) link

but yeah, he's never been that intelligible; probably working out the Michael Stipe book.
Which reminds me - I properly got into this band and REM at the same time after hiring cassettes of Out of Time and The Bends from the local library. That was a cheery week for 14 y/o me.

monoprix à dimanche (dog latin), Friday, 19 September 2014 09:17 (six years ago) link

'How I Made My Millions' is almost a pisstake of Thom's non-verbal singing, right?

monoprix à dimanche (dog latin), Friday, 19 September 2014 09:58 (six years ago) link

When There There, Planet Telex, and then Bodysnatchers run into each other on a playlist in that order it doesn't seem like Radiohead have actually been all that radical in their development over that 13/14 year period. Obviously there's a lot of other stuff too, but I used to think of Kid A as a real "this is a new band" moment and it's, of course, not that simple at all.

This poll's really fucking broken me.

This was tweeted by Thom and just retweeted by Radiohead.

I'd love to do another one to see how A Moon Shaped Pool would get on.

would think it needs more time, surely KoL would fare better by now

I also think we should have a thread for hilarious fan hyperbole and fill it with quotes on Radiohead

also, FIGHT!:

Excellent and amusing insight into how Grant Gee made the No Surprises video. I'd love to read a nice fat Q+A type book about their whole career. There still isn't a decent Radiohead book as far as i'm aware?

My top four, too — but their best rock riff is The National Anthem.

“Bodysnatchers” for me, but I will rep for “There, There” too.

Kid A for me, but leaving out The Bends is like leaving out the heart.

You guys been listening to the weekly gigs from their archive? Dublin 2000 and Bonaroo 2006 have been really excellent so far. Soundboard quality too. Astoria ‘94 tonight..

it's cool they're doing this weekly thing for the pandemic... though it's all (so far) stuff they already put out on their "public library" site. I'd probably be more enthused to check it out if not for that... even though I haven't gotten around to much of it yet! Oh well.

About this poll.... I just recently did my first ilm artist ballot and I may have misunderstood about albums. Are you only supposed to list the ones you really like (or, i guess, "rate")? I'm just surprised at the low number of votes for Pablo Honey. I doubt that few of the voters ever heard Pablo Honey. They just didn't even bother to put it last on their list?

the rules for polls vary a fair bit, the underworld poll is definitely a huge outlier in ballot size. i'd imagine for this one people were only allowed to vote for a maximum of 5 albums.
