400th review special!!!! Not really special but ok.
So I guess I'm really late listening to Thom Yorke's debut album but anyways. I gave it 2 listens and I tried my best to understand what was going on there. What I have to say is that I really liked it and I'm absolutely going to go back to it soon (prabably today tho). In my opinion there are some moments that sound like Radiohead which is pretty acceptable and understandable and it's also one of the reasons why I enjoyed this that much. ... read more

One of the most underappreciated records of the decade, which is strange considering that it's coming from one of the most celebrated figures in music history. Several fine examples of Thom's mastery of songcraft with strong lyrics and infectious melodies. These rise far above being Radiohead B-sides.

Thom Yorke works solo to make his own electronic effort. The result is, well, a Radiohead record... which isn't a bad thing, of course! "The Eraser" contains some of the most intimate songwriting and the most raw production and vocal performances in his career.

Fav Tracks: Black Swan, The Eraser, Cymbal Rush, Skip Divided, Harrowdown Hill, Analyse, And It Rained All Night

Least Fav Track: I actually don't have one... maybe The Clock?

Good

After working with Radiohead exclusively for more than ten years, Thom Yorke decided to branch off for a minute and create some solo material. 'The Eraser' is a promising solo effort from Yorke, with its minimalistic traits. However, the record lacks any continuity in the tracklist, and fails to keep the listener completely occupied.

Color: White
FAV TRACKS: Black Swan, Atoms for Pear, The Clock, Skip Divided
LEAST FAV: Cymbal Rush, The Eraser, Harrowdown Hill
