Know Your Meme Album Exchange Club Part Two

Based on the thread DrPepperfan made a few months ago, the Know Your Meme Album Exchange Club returns!

The Rules:

The rules of this thread go like this: Each round we’ll each recommend ONE album for the round, which will be assembelled into one list.

One album will be chosen at random every 2 days, and everyone particapating in the round will download and listen to it. From there we’ll discuss it and give our opinions of them, eventually moving onto the next album when the conversation has slowed down enough.

Please make sure you have a download of the album ready for when it’s chosen, although Youtube and Grooveshark playlists are acceptable as well.

So you guys ready?

My first suggestion is Graduation by Kanye West.

\

Current List

1. Graduation by Kanye West
2. Total Pwnage by Powerglove
3. You’re A Woman, I’m A Machine by Death From Above 1979
4. The King of Limbs by Radiohead
5. Mylo Xyloto by Coldplay
6. Ambivalence Avenue by Bibio
7. Music has the Right to Children by Boards of Canada
8. The Suburbs – Arcade Fire
9. Smile – Brian Wilson
10. Whatever and Ever Amen by Ben Folds Five
11.
12.
13.
14.
15.

We’ll start the first round at 10 albums and stop taking submissions after 20ish, with a new submission allowed whenever another album is taken off

Actually, since we never got to mine last thread, I’ll suggest it again.

You’re A Woman, I’m A Machine by Death From Above 1979

The King of Limbs, by Radiohead


Full Album on YouTube

Is this anything like Kid A at all?

I really liked the sort of electronic based album a ton.

It does have a very layered sound, not unlike Kid A. I thought the whole thing was absolutely beautiful when I first heard it, and anyone who enjoyed the band’s earlier work will be pleasantly surprised at this one.

Anyone else want to toss on an album, or a second one for the people already playing?

Either way, the first album will be announced at about 7pm Central, tonight.

More people can join if they want their albums added, even after the first round.

Please send a link to a download, a youtube playlist, or whatever in the next few hours for your album.

Okay guys the first album up is King of Limbs by Radiohead.

Here’s a link to the album

It’s their Eighth Studio Album, released February 2011.

Take a listen, tell us what you think.

So far into it, it seems really mixed up, but in a cool way.

A full review to come.

A slow burner and another new direction for Radiohead,I can definitely see dub-step influences in this one.I don’t see why it got so much hate
4/5

Well, I got it the day it came out, and I loved it. It was my first Radiohead album, actually. I think my favorite track was Bloom, and they did a rendition on the Colbert Report that was just awesome. I’ll give it a 9.5/10.
