The Eraser

From the man who helms Radiohead come nine songs that should embarrass aspiring musicians everywhere. With complexity sans showboating and simplicity without tedium, Yorke bridges electronic elements with more traditional rock instruments. The result is a palatable bowl of porridge that even the most fickle Goldilocks couldn’t scoff at. If your life were a movie, and this were its soundtrack, you’d find yourself in a foreign city staring out the window of a midnight train after having your heart broken. Afterwards, your character would have coffee with mine while talking about what a great track “And It Rained All Night” is. Yorke dedicated Amnesiac (2001) to his son Noah and The Eraser to his daughter Agnes. If I were Agnes, I wouldn’t feel slighted in the least.
