Radiohead: which album sounds similar to "The Bends?"
Posted by: pinkoos

Hi,

I have The Bends and absolutely love it. I also have OK Computer and In Rainbows and like those as well, but they are just not as melodic as The Bends.

Sifting through reviews of the other albums, it's difficult for me to get a gauge on which other of their albums are less "experimental" and more tuneful.

Anybody have any idea?

Thanks!

The Bends is the apex of that kind of stuff before Radiohead became more experimental.
You'd have to look at any release before that one to get at least some that feel but The Bends really was their perfection of that style. Gotta love a band that dedicates it's album to Bill Hicks!

Pablo Honey is the only album that comes close to being less "experimental" and more tuneful.

Yeah, you're more into earlier radiohead. you might look into the My Iron Lung EP which has some B-sides which are great songs.

As SLM says, Pablo Honey is going to sound like the Bends. But in the end all their albums are great, and Kid A is maybe their best, much more listenable then the much more hyped Ok. So you have to get Kid A too.

I wrote off that band for way too long because I couldn't stand that "Creep" song for years and years. I've come around, though, and Kid A was the starting point for me.

Sounds like I'd do well to check out Kid A. Thanks.

Funny, I did too, it wasn't until my sister visited in '95 and was playing Just that they first piqued my interest. But it wasn't until the following year when I caught them on tour with Spiritualized on the OK Computer tour that I really changed my mind about them, I had actually went to see Spiritualized but Radiohead (who were headliners) were actually very very good, granted the live show was amped up a lot more than their recordings, even by their own admission... what Thom Yorke referred to as their AC/DC period at the opening of the show, lol.

Yeah, I kind of blew it by not going to the Radiohead / Spiritualized show when they came to town ten years ago or whatever it was. Bet it was amazing! It's hard to top Spiritualized live, so that took some guts by Radiohead to pick them as their openers.

and now for something completely different (and even MORE experimental)...


After a cease & desist put the breaks on Amplive's Radiohead In Rainbows remix project, the online music community reasonably wondered if the tracks would ever see the light of day. Well, here they are.

While the Oakland producer/DJ acknowledges that he probably should have contacted Radiohead (who were not involved in the project) to seek approval prior to making his interpretations publicly available, an agreement has been reached between all involved parties and Amplive has been granted permission to release Rainydayz Remixes for free to the general public. Effective immediately, the eight-track record is available here.

Rainydayz Remixes is composed exclusively of source material pulled from In Rainbows, re-envisioned by Amplive and complimented by vocal work from Too $hort, MC Zumbi of Zion I, Chali2na of Jurassic 5, Codany Holiday, and Del The Funky Homosapien.

Track list:

01 Rainydayz
02 Video Tapez (Ft. Del The Funky Homosapien)
03 Nudez (Ft. Too $hort & MC Zumbi of Zion I)
04 Weird Fishez
05 All I Need
06 15 Stepz (Ft. Codany Holiday)
07 Reckonerz (Ft. Chali2NA)
08 Faustz
