The changing of the avant-garde: “these songs are not, strictly speaking, songs at all. They are jams, montages, sonic experiments, unrelieved by vocal melodies or hooklines. Yorke’s voice seems to have become another instrument rather than the focus of the music” – HA HA! Radiohead’s new album is going to be wannabe-experimental rubbish which only Josh will actually like!

OK, seriously, despite the cavils of the Observer review, the new Radiohead material sounds more interesting than the old Radiohead material. I’ll reserve judgement until the record comes out, though I think I agree with Kathleen that it’ll more likely be the band’s 13 rather than their Colour Of Spring.
