Terrible lyrics, albeit sincere.


Yes.  Some Time in New York City was arguably the greatest nosedive of any major rock star up to that point in time.  Especially if you factor in that it followed Imagine.

But it won't be long before that honour is superceded in longevity by Kid A!!

Kid A is successful on its own terms.  Some Time in NYC is a failure on all levels.

IMO its a far far bigger nosedive between albums than Lennon's.

Kid A is a marmite album, for sure but I think it will be regarded as this era's Trout Mask Replica rather than its Some Time In New York.

The fundamental difference between the two albums is that Kid A was rapturously received by the critics in its time whereas STINY was universally  derided from the very start.

I tend to agree about Kid A though. I loved the first three Radiohead albums but for me the king has had no clothes ever since.

We had seen them on the OK Computer tour and they were fantastic. Which made Kid A even more disappointing. There are several things  you can apply the Emperors new clothes analogy to.

I take things at what I hear not what people say. I long remember the stick I got for buying Electric Warrior, so called friends actually rushed out of the record shop at the time.

Yes, so do I. I've known Radiohead since they were On A Friday, playing local bands nights, and support slots around Oxford. It was great watching them grow up and become successful, and best of all to see them do exactly what they wanted to do, not what anyone else thought they should've done. I am so glad they didn't do The Bends #2 or OK Computer #2; that would've been awful.

Meanwhile, I'm listening to The Be EP by The May. Strange...

I'd like to thank The Budos Band (no, I don't know either) from the bottom of my heart for recommending UFO1 in the latest issue of Shindig.  I've even seen UFO, but I've never actually listened to this before.  It sounds like a bizarre mix of West Coast rock, sort of space-rock and down and dirty proto-punk.  It's absolutely amazing.

On your recommendation I, too, am enjoying this!  Cheesy

With all the 70s lists being posted I'm giving Queen's 1973 debut a spin. One of my favourites. My copy is on the EMI Fame label which presumably was a re-release to cash in on their success later in the decade.

I think the Fame imprint was a mid price reissue label. I have a Fame release of Al Stewart: Year of the Cat. The vinyl is of pretty good quality, but it doesn't have the gatefold sleeve.

“October” Claire Hammil. Probably first listen for 40 years and it’s wonderful. Now see a FC connection as Gerry plays on it.

That's interesting.  She seems to be one of those artists who almost made it but not quite. I have a reissue of her debut album somewhere.
