Rachel Yamagata is great. I mostly like her stuff except for a few songs where she does the weird thing female singers do when they go with deep voices. I have no idea what the hell it's called. You see it a lot from Christina Aguilerra and R&B singers. I can't stand it.

I haven't heard of the other two you mentioned. I'll have ot check it out.

trufresh - great notes.

I've always liked Beth Orton but she hasn't been able to top Central Reservation which I feel is her best album.

New Thom Yorke album due out July 10th has leaked to the internet. Hardcore Radiohead fans will be happy with this one. It's great!

I agree. I also like the stuff she's done with William Orbit, although I'm not extremely excited about the stuff he does without her. They should release an album together.

Word to that. I love Central Reservation, but have never been able to get into any of her other albums.

One of my most anticipated shows exceeded my expectations.

I saw Radiohead last night at the Tower Theater. My buddy & I snuck down to the 5th row. It was the greatest concert I've ever been a part of. To see a band of this magnitude at a venue like the Tower was unreal.

They always deliver.

How did you sneak to the 5th row?

The concert I'm going to is GA but the venue is so awesome that it's perfect for them.

We just walked along the aisle of the far wall all the way. There was security right there and yet they didn't care that we stood where we were.

Here's the setlist (they played a bunch of new tunes):

01 You And Whose Army
02 The National Anthem
03 2+2=5
04 Open Pick
05 15 Step
06 Exit Music
07 Kid A
08 Nude
09 Arpeggi
10 Street Spirit
11 Pyramid Song
12 Myxomatosis
13 House of Cards
14 Spooks
15 Idioteque
16 Bangers N Mash
17 There There

Encore 1:
18 Airbag
19 No Surprises
20 Bodysnatchers
21 Everything in its right place

Encore 2:
22 4 Minute Warning
23 Karma Police

That's a great setlist. 2 encores is nice as well.

No surprises has got to be one of my favorite Radiohead songs. If they'd have done True Love Waits, that would've capped it.

No Surprises was awesome.

Exit Music gave me goosebumps because Thom Yorke starts so quiet on the acoustic guitar and the entire place went dead silent to hear him.


I was hoping they'd play the National Anthem which they did but Airbag was the highlight for me.
