Although we have some theories. Sadly, the only sped-up version we could find has enhanced vocals, meaning they don't sound quite as creepy as they would in the album:. But if you want creepy, you can always trust Nine Inch Nails to take things to the next level: The track " Erased, Over, Out " from their remix album Further Down the Spiral is long and repetitious So if you ever heard that song at regular speed and afterward felt an inexplicable urge to format your hard drive, now you know why.
Purging your data is a perfectly natural response to NIN. Radiohead's album Kid A , a follow-up to the hugely successful OK Computer , seems to be particularly good at spawning conspiracy theories. In an article in The New Yorker , British novelist Nick Hornby called it "commercial suicide," speculating that the band may have intentionally made it weird and experimental as way to piss off the label and get out of their record contract too bad it went on to be a bestseller.
On a purely unrelated note, this is Radiohead's manager. Oddly enough, Kid A did include creepy clues to the future, but not on the album itself -- they were hidden in the actual packaging. You see, besides the regular cover booklet with the usual stuff like lyrics and credits, there was a second, slightly more disturbing booklet hiding behind the album's tray. The tray was all black, so the extra booklet wasn't immediately visible. It featured strange art and snippets of lyrics, as well as some other pieces of text that seemed to be random bits of poetry.
But it turns out those pieces of text weren't just random writings from the band -- they were actual lyrics from their next two albums, 's Amnesiac and 's Hail to the Thief. Yep, the satanic-looking secret booklet printed the lyrics for songs that wouldn't come out for three years.
Granted, it's pretty common for bands to leave songs off of albums and re-use them later, but it's still very cool that those who found the booklet got a preview of the future. Thom Yorke's bed-sheets and walls are covered in "previews" like this.
And what do you know, after Hail to the Thief , Radiohead was finally free of their recording contract and went independent for their next album, 's In Rainbows. And speaking of In Rainbows Additionally, OK Computer 's original working title was Zeroes and Ones , or "01," the mirror image of "10" Even that last part alone is enough to make Radiohead fans start looking for a crazy conspiracy, as you're probably aware if you've ever had to spend a long car ride sitting beside one. The scary part?
This time they'd be totally right. This is what doing a whippet on the highway looks like. There's a way to combine the tracks from OK Computer hereinafter referred to as 01 and In Rainbows hereinafter referred to as 10 , to form one huge mega-album. In the way that "Golden Slumbers," "Carry That Weight" and "The End" all flow into each other on The Beatles' Abbey Road , these songs all flow into one another as well, as if they were all recorded in one big session.
Don't believe us? Just listen to it. To get the full effect, you need to set your player with a second crossfade between tracks more 10s! Then shit your pants. Is Thom York moody, or is he acting like he just crapped his pants as a really subtle clue? This blogger points out that the song "Nude" 10 album , starts with the reverb from "Subterranean Homesick Alien" 01 album still lingering, and the beats at the end of "Airbag" 01 set the tempo for "15 Step" There's nothing unusual about that The pants-shitting synchronicity also applies to the lyrics.
Puddlegum gives some examples and says: " There appears to be a concept flowing through the 01 and 10 playlist. Ideas in one song [are] picked up by the next. Alternate way to sum it up. Remember all that "10" stuff we mentioned up top, about the date, the time between albums, the number of letters in the titles and whatnot? Want more? Radiohead themselves announced In Rainbows only 10 days before it came out which is rather unusual , and the announcement was followed by a series of 10 cryptic messages posted by the band on their website.
That's nothing new: Cryptic messages might be the only way alternative rock musicians know how to communicate. But then Radiohead fans, being Radiohead fans, noticed that the messages emphasized the letter X one image was titled "Xendless Xurbia".
And, say, isn't "X" the Roman numeral for 10? Plus, let's take a look at this cover art real quick. Oh, look, two 10s. The band has never officially confirmed any of this, though Puddlegum claims Thom Yorke was annoyed by how long it's taken people to figure it out. Come on, dude -- not all of us are insane alien geniuses. Three separate tracks from the latest Tool album can be assembled into a different one -- it's like Voltron, only with progressive metal songs instead of progressive metal robots seriously, those guys had a woman pilot before most airlines.
But plenty of bands do multi-part songs, so there's nothing special about it, right? You can't spell "diVersity" without some of the letters in "Voltron"! Well, the difference is that, in this case, you don't get the full song by doing something as mundane as playing one track after the other -- you get it by changing the order and playing them at the same time.
The lyrics are remarkable and creepy but amazing, the beats are insane, and this album is just plain amazing.
If you are just looking at Radiohead for the first time check out their older albums before you jump into Kid A, then you will realize the awesomeness of them.
In Limbo Treefingers Es war teilweise sehr schwer, mich zu entscheiden welcher Track nun weiter nach vorne kommt, aber irgendwie habe ich es doch geschafft Die schwierigsten Entscheidungen waren "Kid A" oder "The National Anthem" und "In Limbo" oder "Treefingers".Kid A is the fourth studio album by the English rock band Radiohead, released on 2 October by Parlophone. After the stress of promoting Radiohead's acclaimed album OK Computer, songwriter Thom Yorke envisioned a radical change in direction.
