The Big Mates discuss radio presets, Foghorn Leghorn, gummy bears, and Amnesiac by Radiohead.

Adam, Steve, and Lucas continue their deep dive into the bands fifth album, Amnesiac. They finish up their track-by-track dissection of the record, offer up their final thoughts, and attempt to assign it a score.

They also talk about the album in comparison to Kid A, as well as the albums that came before it, and how the album rests within the context of the Radiohead canon.

What do the Big Mates ultimately think of Amnesiac? Is the album disrespectful? Can Pulk/Pull Revolving Doors be classed as music? Find out on this episode of What Is Music?

Our next episode is out on Monday September 26th and will feature insightful commentary for Radiohead's performance live on Canal+ in 2001.
