I don’t understand why Radiohead is considered by many to be one of the best rock bands of all time. Since The Bends, I’ve been bored.
Radiohead cover of Joy Division/New Order’s “Ceremony”
Sounds exciting, but 30 seconds of this made me want to hear the original instead. One doesn’t think of Bernard Sumner’s voice as in the same league as Thom Yorke, but he wins.

Here again, a lifeless, listless cover. Thom does an unconvincing ape of Moz’s mock-tortured cadence that just ends up torturing us all.
Go ahead and try to convince me otherwise…
