The End of the Eighties

To cheer Dave up from last fortnight’s angst, next up we’re reviewing a band with a permanent spot in his Top 5. From its placement on the Music Tree, this fortnight’s album looked like our final record of the eighties, but appearances can be deceptive, and it was in fact released in 1997. Representing Alternative Rock, this fortnight we are listening to OK Computer by Radiohead.

This is Radiohead’s third album, and marks the beginning of their more experimental approach to music making. Over the years it has received huge critical acclaim, so this fortnight we’ll see if it lives up to the hype! Or at least I’ll decide whether it lives up to the hype – I suspect Dave decided years ago…

Each fortnight Fran and Dave choose a new album to listen to. We write about the genre or artist during the fortnight, and post our reviews on Sunday. Want to join the musical adventure? Subscribe by clicking the link in the sidebar to get an email every time there’s a new post.

    Strange choice to ‘cheer me up’.
