Me on NPR on Radiohead

Here is the link.  Over the last week I went back and listened to their major works again; I’m not that impressed.  Try Christopher O’Riley’s album of piano arrangements, and you will see just how thin and unmemorable their compositions are.  Admittedly not all great music would transfer well to the piano, but the Radiohead "sound" isn’t that original either, at least not compared to the frontiers of electronica or for that matter punk.  This morning I put on Boris’s Pink; it is hardly my favorite album but it was a welcome relief.
