Thom Yorke: The Eraser

Thom Yorke seems to be completely incapable of coming up with an instantly likeable sing-along, catchy pop tune. Instead he forces us to work hard to tune into his psyche with countless listening before you start to get an idea of what he’s up to. The album lacks Radiohead’s intricate guitar work normally provided by Jonny Greenwood and seems instead to rely on a heady discord of blips, pips and electronic farts. I’ve spoken to a few people who really love it, but I’m still working on it.
