I used to HATE them.
I was a hard rock, fist pumping, beer guzzling, head banging guy and I thought they were for f@gs.
They slowly grew on me as I matured both musically and personally.
But it wasn't until I started to produce and understand more about music that I became a huge fan. I honestly think they're the best artist of our generation bar none.
The ability to completely change styles and do it so well, is something that is tremendously underrated, and one of the main reasons most artists admire them so much.
But my favorite thing about Radiohead, is their ability to create moods like a great classical composer does, or some of the great artists from past generations. A silent room gets filled with intensity with a chord coming from the piano, something the great jazz musicians were great at.
Listen to Miles Davis' Kind of Blue and you'll get that same sense of energy by a single note. At times its chilling.
