One of the absolute best things for stomach aches is ginger ale! Especially a strong spicy one with lots of ginger in it, it's amazing how effective it is at settling your stomach. Even when I've had very painful stomach aches, ginger ale has settled it quickly. Cheers :)

I think the reason people put so much stock into replay value is because music is one of the only mediums where a casual consumer will regularly return to a given piece, which in a way gives music its own special place in popular media. Most people won't watch a TV show or movie more than once, or will only rewatch them after a few months or years have gone by. By comparison, its not uncommon to loop the same song many times a day. Obviously replay value shouldn't be the only thing considered when judging music, but its an important part of what makes music unique from other art mediums, so it's worth considering most of the time.
Baconheart 4 mesi fa
It's funny that the two mediums where people do put huge stock into the idea of "replay value" are for completely different reasons. Video games deal with the idea of replay value as a criticism all the time, but there it's more like "I paid $60 for this experience, it better include some artificial reason to experience it multiple times or else I've wasted my money"

I finally just got around to listening to Ok Computer and Kid A, and tbh Ok Computer had me confused why it was so hyped the first listen, every song was just solid and good….and then it stuck with me all day. Every song, stuck with me, and I wanted to listen to it again and again.

I've read this exact sentence in every review I've seen of OK Computer so far, the "It was pretty solid but I didn't really saw the hype, however one day... everything clicked with me", wich is kinda funny to me, because it kinda sounds like some mass brain-washing scheme made by Tom Yorke himself lol. I've heard it twice already, and it still didn't really clicked with me like In Rainbows did for exampe, but who knows, maybe I will too succumb to the OK Computer reign one day...

I will get murdered for this but I feel as if OK Computer is overrated, yet still a pretty good album. I just don’t think it strikes a chord with any of the greatest albums of all time but I would still rate it in the 80 to 90 percent range. There was a point where I absolutely loved the album but with more repeated listens it grew off of me. However, I think that Kid A is fantastic and is one of my all time favourite albums.

Regarding the 'replay factor' argument, Sinner Get Ready comes to mind. It's probably the most emotionally impactful album listening experience I've ever had but I still wouldn't listen to it again cause it's just too upsetting. Couldn't imagine myself washing dishes to that or just chilling to it after a hard day the way I would to, say, Future Nostalgia.
Arthur 4 mesi fa
which is funny because after mellon’s review I went to listen to the album and had to wash dishes and It was not an enjoyable experience I can tell you that
Querent 4 mesi fa
That's very interesting. I listened to that album virtually on repeat. Though I agree it's very emotional, and certainly requires a certain mood. I was just in that mood a lot when it came out, lol (and I'm from rural PA, so it had an instantly nostalgic quality for me). But, I can't be certain I will EVER listen to A Crow Looked at Me by Mount Eerie ever again, but I would easily rate it in the top 50 albums of all time. It's just emotionally devastating, and if I listen to it I know I'm gonna have a long, ugly cry. That's a tough sell for a listening experience.

I was recently surprised when relistening to Radiohead-Ok Computer by how quality it is considering how cliche it’s greatness is It really is fantastic as tight as almost any album I’ve heard Just classic after classic I agree it’s not there best album but I think as far as critical acclaim goes it’s not particularly overrated
Spookster 4 mesi fa
I recall you saying, in regards to whether TPAB or Ok Computer deserves the title of "best album of all time", "Anyone with an alternative rock taste would like OK Computer." OKC isnt particularly hard to listen to but I think thats fucking amazing and a sign of expert musicianship. To get ideas across about the existential dread of computers forever changing society, and actually have the ideas be digestible and not overly cryptic takes so much talent. Rick Beato (a music producer) says in one of his videos that while he was in music college, EVERYONE there was trying to reverse engineer and understand how tf OKC was made. It was so far ahead of its time with its sound and the ideas. Its a fantastic album I'll cherish forever. When listening to Radiohead's discog I usually come back to In Rainbows more, simply because its nice, emotional music you can throw on anytime (and Jigsaw Falling into Place is the best song ive ever heard), but OK is their greatest achievement IMO.

John saying "He was such a stupid GIT" on "I'm so Tired" said with such vitriol is pretty much just as impactful as any swear would be there. We saw what happened when John had full reign over what words he used in his songs in a very interesting diddy about women.

Replay value doesn't have to equal to daily rotation. A high replay value can mean that you remember the album and return to it over time and time again, and perhaps it not only delivers the same experience again, but adds to it, you discover new aspects of it over time.

I have a funny story about the Beatles swearing. A while ago, I visited the O mansion in DC where they have all these fancy rooms decorated like TGI Fridays that could be rented out like a hotel. The owners were avid friends and fans of the Beatles and he had a room dedicated to John Lennon. I walked into it while one of Lennon’s songs was playing in the background and I laughed; in the song he messed up, paused, and cursed a bunched.

On the replay value topic, generally when I hear that term used i think more along the lines of "okay, this song sounded nice, but I don't think its going to give me enough to come back to it ever" as opposed to music that is really good, but you have to listen to it sparingly because its a very involved listen
knifefght 4 mesi fa
Maybe 'longevity' should replace the term replay value as a concept
@knifefght no, cuz even a song that you won't listen to often still has VALUE on the REPLAY, so changing the term doesn't offer any extra clarity

I can't be totally sure I will ever be emotionally willing to listen to A Crow Looked at Me by Mount Eerie ever again. I like music that makes me cry, but not that hard. So for me, there's almost no replay value. But I'd still put it in the top 50 albums ever recorded without hesitation.
Cleve Crudgington
I have to be honest I don't even understand the replay value debate. If I like a song or album I'm going to listen to it more than once. If something is good it automatically has replay value by default.

Very much agree on the point about replay value. My first reaction was disagreement, but then after stopping to think I realized that most of my favorite albums in fact do not have high "replay value," in the sense that I need to be in at least a somewhat specific mood/set of circumstances to put them on. For sure, there are plenty of albums I love that I probably could listen to almost any day, but that doesn't mean they are better or that I enjoy them more than an album I listen to on a less frequent basis.

From the Basement is their best album. It may not be an album, but its their best performance, and they always composed their music thinking about playing them live. From the Basement is probably the best concert, live, performance, session that any group of humans have ever constructed. You can't judge Radiohead until you listen (and watch) their From the Basement sessions. In Rainbows is the great one, but im just saying, there are two of them.

LET'S ARGUE: Everything popular is going to be "overrated" to a certain extent because music is inherently subjective, and there's always gonna be some lesser praised thing in a similar field that people think should be up there instead...but if it was, then they'd be calling that thing overrated too.

i think a productive way to look at "replay value" isn't the frequency you revisit a record. for me, the question is - WHEN i re-listen to a record, do i get anything new from it? is there anything else there i missed? there's some records i've loved, and i DID listen to them every day, that after a while i found i had gotten everything from the album that i was going to get. that's not replay value! this also fits nicely into anthony's take here since not every deep record is possible, or even healthy, to listen to super often.

I agree with the replay value take, cause for example if a song is sad or something it could be really good but you’re not always going to be in the mood to listen to it, and as for when there is a song you listen to often it might not be the best lyrical song but it just sounds good in the background, so it can’t really be used when talking about how objectively good something is. But if you’re having a conversation about what you like more, obviously the replay value is one of the more important factors

The "ok computer" is a masterpiece of sound engineering, and when I first listened to as a teenager, it reminded me of Pink Floyd's 1967 album: "The Piper at the gates of dawn", which made an equally amazing impression on me. Still, I liked more"Kid A" - it is more neurotic, sounding like the sonic reverse of the previous one. I appreciate the music of the "radioheads", even though there was an incident during one of their last concerts in my country, which I remember, when one of the band members saw me staring in the crowd, impressed by spoting the legend, and just said: retard. Well, maybe God didn't give everyone the opportunity to look like McLuhan or a hot chick, but he did give radiohead albums xD.

Replay value can be a factor in quality, If I want to listen to an album again and again then I probably quite like it, But there are equally some songs I love with very little replay value, Like Gotye's "State Of The Art" or Suicide's "Frankie Teardrop", Both excellent songs that I probably wouldn't listen to more than once or twice a year at most.

I would argue that Ok Computer is where Radiohead found “their sound”. If you compare it to The Bends the difference is really obvious, and if I listen closely to tracks on Ok Computer I can still pick up new details that I haven’t heard before. I think that Ok Computer is Radiohead through the lens of 90 Alt Rock and Kid A is Radiohead through the lens of Electronica. Also Lucky and especially The Tourist are great tracks.
Paranoid Android
Here are my takes 1. OK Computer isn't overrated, and especially not just because they were still finding their sound. 2. The Beatles shouldn't have sworn more. In fact, I'd argue that swearing would've made their music more awkward. 3. Honestly, I wouldn't be against it. I'd appreciate a little boom bap in rap. 4. I have no say in bands/artists I have never heard 5. Try some Pepto Bismol. 6. Uhhh, My Chemical Romance? Never heard them before. 7. Man, I dunno at this point. 8. Yeah, but what if we want to hear it again? Didn't think about that one. 9. I have no opinion on this subject matter. 10. I agree.

The thing with swearing in music and art in general is that if it accomplishes something meaningful it should be there, but oftentimes is just unnecessary filler. It also alienates people who don’t want to hear that stuff. My dad apologized to me after taking me to Moneyball because there were 2 f-words in the whole movie and he has constantly complained about that every time he watches it. Even if people who are unbothered by swearing don’t see an issue, there are still people who are deeply offended by swearing in general, and their opinions do matter to some extent.

It's interesting to consider how that 'replay value' comment compares to other media. For example: While Grave of the Fireflies is one of the most beautiful, sad, touching and impactful movies I've ever seen, was an extraordinary rollercoaster of emotions, my life is better for having seen it, told all my friends they NEED to watch it, and my memory of that viewing is still very vivid in my mind even after more than 20 years; I never want to experience that movie ever again. On the other hand, I could watch Aliens once a week and not get bored of it for a long time. I consider Aliens to be a lesser movie than Grave of the Fireflies. There are a couple of albums that I consider to be outstanding, monumental, eternal but I can't really listen to them more than once a year (for example RYSFLATH).

There’s technically a swear in Hey Jude when Paul Mccartney misses a chord. You can audibly hear it in the official version. Its amazing

every time I run OK Computer back I'm reminded of how many tracks I love on it not my favorite by them by any means either but it's there as far as songwriting is concerned also Cedric's (ATDI/The Mara Volta) vocals are beautiful regarding that MCR take...Claudio from Coheed as well

I recently thought of Radiohead's career as kind of taking off from the plateau of Pablo Honey onto Bends and OK Computer being the highest part of that soaring motion (I agree it's not a complete album, there are a couple songs on it I don't like.. but as far as efforts go, pretty good! [comparable to something like Revollver from the Beatles[).. Kid A is perfect. Hail to the Thief follows the weightlessness of Kid A with a plunge into the depths.. and now they've kind of settled into a serene (as serene as you can be in this world without blinkers on)-ish mood... heyy fucking juudee

The idea that they fully found their sound with Kid A and then adventured away to other sounds mean they didn’t find their sound in Kid A 🤣

Let down from Ok Computer is definitely a top 3 example for a Radiohead sound
I’m honestly scared of what music looks like after trap beats.

All these takes boil down to "this thing many people like is overrated, whereas this thing that was overrated after or before is not overrated because I like it"

6:08 Billy Talent and Smashing Pumpkins are also solid examples of shrill voices that still compliment their music.

I kinda agree about the "replay value" thing, I've noticed that the most emotional songs/albums I know, I just can't listen to often.

You know what? As a huge Radiohead fan, I agree. (And here I was thinking I was the only one in the whole wide world). OK Computer remains to be my keast favorite or revisited album of theirs. No matter what, "Karma Police" "Airbag" and a few other tracks aside, I just don't get down with the record like that. That said, In Rainbows, to me, is their crowning achievement, their magnum opus, if you will, because, to me, that record is the most omniscient projection of their overall "sound", idiom, and mission statement as a band.

For the argument at 6:40 ish of this video, I’d also argue alongside Melon that David Bowie’s final album ‘Blackstar’ is an almost perfect album that deals with Bowies impending death (for those that are unaware, Bowie was in the final stages of cancer during the making of this album). It’s a perfect send off, but it’s hard to replay songs like Lazarus even though they’re perfect.

Let’s stop arguing about Radiohead. We get it. Some of you think they’re the greatest band ever, and some of you can’t stand them and don’t understand what the hype is about.

OKC is my favorite album. Every so often, I'll go a month or two between listens. I'll think, "Is it really as good as I remember?" Then I put it on, and about 2 seconds into Airbag, I'm reminded of how stupid I am for thinking that.

The "replay value" take definitely applies to games and movies too. Like, there are plenty of games that offer an INCREDIBLE experience your first time through but have almost no replay value. I don't think this devalues how amazing that original playthrough is, and I've always found that judging media by its replay value isn't the most helpful metric when the media in question wasn't designed to be replayed.

OK Computer is the perfect balance between what they were during The Bends and what they would become with Kid A.

OK Computer is not overrated imo. Half the songs of the album they still play live. The Tourist is not formulaic. It's has a strange interrupted time signature going for it. Lucky is the oldest song of the albums, and its sound and temperament, led the way and inspired the rest of the album (I think I heard them say somewhere).
the editing of this let's argue is amazing
If I ever run into that guy who insulted Gerard Way's singing, it's ON SIGHT.

The replay value discussion is actually really interesting. To step outside of music: The Last Duel is a truly great movie (IMO) that I never want to see again. It packed an emotional punch that just about any other piece of media I have ever consumed has not managed to match. For that, and the quality of craft involved int he film, I would consider it a great piece of art. However, the subject matter of the film is unsuitable to many people and truly disturbing by any metric. I never want to watch it again as I know the difficult elements take me to an emotional place that it is not healthy to regularly visit. But for the sole instance of my watching it, I would consider that experience well worth it.

2:05 In 1967, when The Doors played their song Light My Fire on the Ed Sullivan Show, they were asked to change a line in the lyrics from "girl, we couldn't get much higher" to "girl, we couldn't get much better" because sponsors of the show were uncomfortable with a possible reference to drugs. Jim Morrison sang the original lyrics and Ed Sullivan did not shake his hand after the performance and they were never invited back on the show. 60s pop culture, TV and radio was a hell of a lot more conservative. Like, I still remember radio edits of American Idiot where they just muted the vocals for swear words 😂 sounded terrible. Radio edits were not that long ago. Ofc there's also Rage Against the Machine's BBC 2009 performance of "Killing in the Name Of which cut broadcast half way thru cuz Zack de la Rocha started swearing 😂

Gerard Way and Cedric Zavala are some of my favorite vocalists. Their voices are beautiful to me however, I can understand someone not being into it lol
