I've never understood why. But if you've ever been a Radiohead fan, I have no doubt youll find a lot to love here.
The maturity and depth to A Moon Shaped Pool has me reeling, crying with it's beauty. It's been 24 years since I heard that first song, and I can't even find the words to describe how incredible this album is. I know this oversharing, I just don't know what to do with the feelings coming out of my soul right now.
Radiohead, who titled their ninth studio album A Moon Shaped Pool, have a unique grasp on how easily profundity can slip into banality. Their music is obsessed with the point where great truths harden into platitudes, where pure signal meets wretched noise. He is now considering simpler truths in a d register: wonder and amazement. This goes beyond me, beyond you, he sings on Daydreaming.
