In your face, world.
For the untrained eye it would seem like this blog is failing. I opened it a year ago and my posts have zero traction, I’ve only gathered a few followers and I seldomly update it. The detail you’re all missing has always been clear and in the open, the objective of this publication is to find honest jobs for me out there in the wilderness of the Internet. I announced it. Twice. In that regard, the success is evident. I’ve been working, and that’s the main reason things have been so quiet around here.

At fist I thought this was the most rock Radiohead had put in al album in over a decade. I was wrong. I’m not an “In Rainbows” or “The King of Limbs” fan, but I love the rest of their output. This new one, I don’t feel like listening to it too much. There’s no deniying the high quality of the music inside “A Moon Shaped Pool“, but Thom Yorke is still in crying mode and Jonny Greenwood still won’t play guitar. In spite of that, they archieved something special. It just doesn’t appeal to me specifically.
I’m still in awe about “Burn the Witch“, and the video is probably my favorite of the year. I also enjoy “Decks Dark” and “Identikit” tremendously. I don’t like “Daydreaming” at all, but I wouldn’t move the dial if it came up on the radio. “True Love Waits” grew on me, even though I’m not a ballad man. The rest is alright, and it has sublime moments, but I cant’t help but miss the old days, when they were a rock band. The album is still #2 among the critics and #1 among the public according to Album of the Year, so I guess Radiohead will survive the judgement of my two or three paragraphs.
