    The trekkie insignia is very cool. He's going through a depressed slump. I think we've all been there at some point? My drinking escapades haven't resulted in spontaneous tattoos but I find it ironic he went for "FITTER HAPPIER", perhaps as a motivational reminder in the mirror each morning to pump himself up? Good lad I say.

    A lot of Americans I've met seem to have this dry humoured opinion. I normally ramble along the lines of "We're efficient with our usage of space, and you can walk or bike 5 for minutes to buy as much frozen or freshly prepared pizza as you want".

    2018 North America Tour

    Both MSG and Philly nights are conveniently on YouTube, definitely the easiest option. There are uploads on YT from other sources too, but they are broken up on a per-song basis.

    I remember all this fuss about the MiniDisc. I went from cassette straight to a CD MP3 player. My fave cassette's were MJ's Dangerous and Garbage's first two albums, played over and over and over until the tapes sounded like a warm fuzzy relic of their former self. Speaking of choosing another format... I think we all know what will happen when the IR anniversary comes along

    Only two more years and we'll have an aptly named KIDANOTAKID along with a tasty new cassette.

    I'm sure he'll quickly catch on to the convenience of wheelchairs too, that way he can still tour without standing up

    Actually I'm confusing this with another concert. It might as well be a Nigel SBD because of how incredible it sounds. It was actually mastered by Paul Phipps. This does beg the question though if Nigel had any involvement, because Paul only received the recording as a 2-track master. There are limits to what you can achieve unless it's a full master, so this really is something special. It's probably the best sounding Radiohead concert I've ever heard. This used to be the original website where he hosted the files http://radioheadbonnaroo.com

    Controversial opinions thread

    I always thought he looked the coolest on the Jools Holland 2001 performance, he's not really styled though. Tight fitting I guess? I'm kinda weird like that but I prefer it when artists are wearing something casual so it isn't taking away from their body language and energy.

    The absurdity of Thom singing Nobody Does it Better is why it's so good. The giggle at 1:17 is classic. It's a real shame no one has the VHS of this knocking about. Lost to the ages. MTV has a lot of gems they need to re-air!

    My mix is more of a mish-mash of the two approaches so I wouldn't put it down to being totally dedicated to their 2006 take. Closest you'll probably get is the outstanding Nigel Paul Phipps SBD master of the 2006 Bonnaroo concert. It's faster and has more emphasis on the drums. Arrangement-wise it's the same, minus the electronic beats, but it has that special energy which Radiohead always deliver in a live performance. Absolutely beautiful. The IR version is subdued, reflective and introspective. I love the fact that we're lucky enough to be spoilt with multiple versions of a single song. If you don't have the 2006 performance, I can PM you with a lossless download or you can grab it from the "Secrets To Be Told" compilation.

    I think it has to do with a combination of factors. Firstly, falsetto does not require the full use of his vocal chords, so it acts as a convenient rest period in songs. I believe he uses it strategically to be kinder to his voice, especially if you consider just how demanding some songs are, and how much of an expectation there is to hear him bash out the "hits" [I hate using that word but it is totally applicable] out of the park with his full-range upper register. Age is less of a factor when compared to actual damage caused by over use, singing whilst you have a throat cold etc. It's surprisingly easy to cause long lasting damage to your voice through improper use. Smoking is one of the worst things a singer can do aside from not resting enough, because it causes polyps to form creating hoarseness. I'm guessing he is also trying to develop his falsetto to have similar power and sound to his head voice. Random thought, I wonder how much of an influence Neil Young had. I think Thom said he first heard of him when he was 16? The male singing voice usually improves with age. I think a good example would be Morrissey, who's voice has definitely thickened and become a lot more tonally interesting and appealing. Thom's voice has a lot more richness to it now, don't you think? I'd personally consider Thom to be a tenor, but there seems to be some argument that maybe he could be a high baritone. This is just a reflection of the octaves he naturally uses in each song, but the classification might be wrong. I have been classed as a tenor, but it feels more natural to sing a little bit lower than Thom. I've had this conversation with other singers before and most people seem to think his voice is too thin to be considered a baritone. He is truly a lucky cat, because his falsetto is smooth as silk and absolutely beautiful. Typically, the lower your voice, the thicker and silkier sounding your falsetto is. Anyways, that was a great question and one that I have been pondering on for a little while now.
