I still haven't heard Radiohead's new album. I'm so out of the loop that I don't even know when it will be sold in stores. I don't have a credit card to buy from iTunes and I like CDs anyway - great sound quality. I love this band so, so much and their other albums will tide me over. This is my favourite song, "Like Spinning Plates," from their Amnesiac (2001) album. It still haunts me every time I listen to it.
The looped synthesized music sounds backwards, as does the first chunk of vocals. I'm not sure how Radiohead achieved this eerie, atmpospheric effect. That scratching reminds me of a plate spinning, which, unlike the looped music, will stop and crash. There is so much pain and truth here.
