This is really a query for personal interest only; as a psychology student,
I'm always interested in people's reactions and opinions. What I want to
ask is what people think of the band Radiohead - not just whether you like
listening to them or not, but what you think of their musicianship. The
reason I ask specifically about Radiohead is that I think that they're quite
"classically" influenced at times.

Personally, I think that whoever gave Thom Yorke, the vocalist, the title of
"Voice of the century" was dead right; it's not very common to hear a rock
singer's soul coming through the music. And the lead guitarist, Johnny
Greenwood, is a man of many talents. They're alternative, I know -
something of an acquired taste, but to me, their songwriting is, at times,
inspired - "Creep", "Exit Music (for a film)", "The Bends" and "Karma
Police". As my brother says, they can't help but write outstanding melodies
and fantastic harmonies.

This is just my opinion. Does anyone share or violently oppose my ideas?
