Looks pretty awesome...but even in the $300 kit they haven't figured what is needed the most...

The push-button pedal doesn't cut it. They need to attatch a drum pad to the rack and have an actual...

Not bad but why does everyone always cover this song when almost any other radiohead song would be a more interesting choice?

It would be like everyone covering "Love Me Do" or something.

Look, I'm a Tom fan and everything, but don't you think that part of the reason for his notoriously awful performances is that he's just not that great of a musician? I mean just listen to the stuff...

I think this album is better than its score here, and (somehow) even better than ..is a real boy, which I regard as nearly perfect.

This is something truly special, truly groundbreaking. Listening...

neither is more important than the other. however, as i am a pretty good musician but couldn't write good lyrics if my life depended on it, i am more impressed and mystified by amazing lyrics than...

I say this from the experience of going from a volunteer to a paid music/film critic for my college newspaper, so it's not exactly a "random thought" (though i am not saying writing for a college...

it's not so much that they are paid, it's what they are paid FOR. they have the tools/skills necessary to write an excellent review each time (and a professional editor to boot), whereas writers here...

I'm guessing this comes from that thermals song, "no culture icons?" ("hardly art, hardly starving/hardly art, hardly garbage.")

great lyric by the way.

i gotta disagree on the voice. i have always loved it, and i think it sounds worse on this record than ever before. sure, from a professional standpoint, it may be "better," but we've lost all that...
