The Big Mates discuss minotaurs, labyrinths, ziggurats, and Amnesiac by Radiohead.
Adam, Steve, and Lucas continue their deep dive into the career and discography of Radiohead by tackling their fifth album Amnesiac. They talk about the writing and recording process, the context surrounding the songs, and offer up analysis, opinions, and thoughts from three differing perspectives on music, from being deeply into analysis and music, to not caring for art or critique, and everything in between.
They touch on how the album could be perceived as both a sister-album and a "leftovers" album, how accessible the album really is, and how it feels coming off the back of the infamous "left turn," Kid A.
