I quite enjoy them
Radiohead's recent one was lovely (all well into their 40's mind)
You want a master piece thats just fine. I do as well. But just because you don't get one doesn't mean someone has to shit all over what a band does put out. And for the record I'm not saying "you personally are" I'm just using your post as anchor point.
I'm convinced if they did another record just like untitled I still think we would be getting they same divided reactions. Its peoples opinions. Never anything objective about an opinion especially on songs or tastes...
Neighborhoods + DED singles also received a luke warm responses, ( that included Tom) and still people are divided in what they feel. I still look at those songs as poorly structured messes. That are all over even within the songs them selves. The split was too hard not enough meshing was done. (My opinion though). None of those songs changed my life, or lyrically blew my mind. Pretty sure they didnt for most people.
Im at the rational point, where I dont need another song like I miss you, it be nice, what I do NEED is some catchy guitar riffs that get stuck in my head more then the lyrics do. Thats what I loved about Toypaj, if thats where they want to be, then bring me some songs that riff hard as fuck...
I still really do enjoy Rabbit Hole. Curious to see how the rest of the album goes.. if its different or if its on a similar level..
And as a side note I've also heard the opinions on RadioHead latest album are divided. Almost everything any band put out will. My co-worker who is a die hard RadioHead fan says the album is forgettable..
