That looks like some sort of 80s leisure outfit.

I just got "The Eraser" on vinyl. I haven't heard it before but I just assumed it would be good, and it is!
The Eraser's still my favorite solo album of his, followed by Anima. Does Atoms for Peace count as a Thom solo album? That's somewhere in there too.

Just listened to Earth for the first time and it's not bad but it's certainly no The Eraser/Anima either. It's not an album I can see myself revisiting very often.

Banksters and Olympik were the coolest tracks.

It's funny to me to see this being the prevailing opinion about Earth. Because while Thom's solo albums have never really clicked with me, Earth is extremely my poo poo.

Then again, I'm the worst kind of Radiohead fan that keeps hoping their next album will be a throwback to The Bends/OK Computer.

I know have Anima, The Eraser and TMB on vinyl and I still can't believe how loving good Thom's solo stuff is. I think I actually like it more than radiohead in terms of consistent quality. I'm a huge electronic music person though so I'm sure I'm a bit biased :p

I remember not thinking too much of The Eraser when it came out, but it really is a lovely, cohesive album worthy of deserving of its own pen-name. Each track really stands on its own but carries the Eraser vibe. The album peaks going with 'Rained all Night' into "Harrowdown Hill", which Thom said was "the most angry song" he'd ever written, so that goes for something. It really lends to the album's clean, darkly-playful minimalist tone though.

I dug out my old CD collection and gave The Eraser another listen today. You are right, it is excellent. I had to check the release date, to see if it was after Kid A/Amnesiac, because to me it seemed to fit in so well with those.

I think it sounded to grim for me in 2006, but it captures the 2020 vibe perfectly.

I never really thought of the Eraser as grim. Maybe occasionally spooky, but mostly, it sounded very futuristic, the same way Ultaista would later. It fit the time more. I'm not sure if Radiohead quite does it for me these days, there's little prettiness in the world, but maybe I should just listen to The Gloaming a lot to truly get into a proper frame of mind for the current moment.

This is a pro click. Ed continues to just be the best.

The bit about them filming the videos for Anyone Can Play Guitar and Stop Whispering had me in stitches, along with Ed excitedly showing them to his dad at the time. ďI am not proud of you sonĒ.

I love the first three tracks on the eraser especially, and cymbal rush is a really beautiful ending to the album. I did recently learn about the meaning behind harrowdown hill which was interesting.

Pitchfork kind of poo poo on the album which is why I realized pitchfork is garbage.

My one regret is despite loving radiohead, I somehow was not aware of the eraser until this year... 14 years later
