    But on a more serious note: Does abstract lyrics combined with hard to understand lyrics make Thom Yorke seem more of a genius than he really is musically? I mean I like the struggle with being lonely in the city and what technology does to our minds. Yeah it influenced Muse and Coldplay and probably a few more bands (Modest mouse, idk?)


    Does that make Gustavo Cerati's post Soda Stereo career great too?



    And this doesn't even mention a similar band that is very similar (and I say better) to Radiohead in Cafe Tacuba. Dare I say that much of Radiohead's mystic is due to its unapproachable "lol you don't get this" lyrics and artistic endeavors but I don't find them a particularly enjoyable experience. Perhaps edifying to an extent but it makes me not overly willing to want to listen to it for pleasure. I like Paranoid android a lot and no surprises and karma police was a nice song as well. Both these bands heavily influenced alternative music in their respective language and are still around. Both mainly make conceptual albums and both are critically and commercially acclaimed. Thoughts?



    You guys are probably Mana fans who like their beachy songs xDDDDDD en el muelle de san blas is a jam tho
