Radiohead : Idioteque (parlophone, 2000)
|| CD promo || >swipe> When #PaulLansky was composing his primitive computer piece, "Mild und Leise" in 1973, I'm pretty sure he didn't reckon that 27 years later four chords from that work would cause thousands of listeners to spend the succeeding decades breaking out in chills whenever they heard them. "#Idioteque" is another of #Radiohead's miraculous efforts on #KidA to harness the power and strangeness of several decades' worth of electronic music and recontextualize it inside of a five-minute "rock" song by a multi-platinum band with tremendous melodic gifts and a majestic singer. It still elicits the most screams when introduced in concert, and almost two decades later still feels like their most forward-feeling songs - if I had to pick just one song to explain why Radiohead are one of my favourite bands of all time this would be it. || .
