I'm taking an hour to listen to the new Radiohead Album. I'm about half way through and don't have any strong opinions just yet. I guess that says a lot in and of itself. We've been looking at some drafts of our album cover, and things are going well. It's hard for me to get a feeling for what the "pulse" of the design world is right now; especially since this is the cover for the new Radiohead:
Actually, now that I look at the larger image, it's not as bad. As a thumbnail it looks a little.... um... terrible. But I'm not a designer, so my taste can't be taken too seriously.
Still been practicing singing for a few hours a day. I think I've mostly corrected my "flatness" problem, or at least I'm getting a lot better at hearing it.
Well, I've just finished the last track of King Of Limbs (there are only 8 songs). I think my disappointment can't be fairly easily understood. I keep hoping that their next album will involved a lot more orchestration by Mr. Greenwood. If you've read this blog for any amount of time, you know that I adore the work he did on "There Will Be Blood". And I keep hoping that more of that will creep into Radiohead's music. But yes, I'm being a little unfair, since that is not what they do. But they really got my hopes up after releasing "Harry Patch (In Memory Of)" a few years ago, I really thought they were going to move in that direction. There are some really nice moments on this album though. Lotus Flower and Codex are some highlights. Thanks for reading.
