I really like radiohead. They’re my second-favorite band, and I listen to them very often. But I really don’t understand why anybody else would like them. It feels like those songs were made specifically for my brain. One reason I like them is the stuff I see inside my head when I listen to them. (I have a strange form of synesthesia.)
I can simultaneously recognize the objective and subjective characteristics of something. When somebody says “I like radiohead” my immediate reaction is but they’re boring! I can see every reason why this really strange, eclectic (to an extreme, untasteful level: this stuff doesn’t mix) meandering stuff is crap. That guy’s voice is just annoying. And what’s with all this noise?
Yet I don’t feel it when I’m listening for my own pleasure.
So, I guess the point of the thread is: Why do you like radiohead? I suppose if you hate radiohead, you can tell me about that too.
