Hidden Gems #3

17 04 2009

I could have written this about most songs on The Bends, its by far and away my favourite album, but as I have been listening to A Letter from God To Man off of the Dan Le Sac vs Scroobius Pip album that uses this sample, I am going to write about Planet Telex.

While songs like Street Spirit, Fake Plastic Trees and High and Dry get all of the radio air play, and deserved plaudits for being brilliant, the album opener never seems to get a look in.

From the opening bars of the keyboards to hook you in to the album as a whole, and the start of Thom Yorkes falsetto odyssey, the cry of “Everything is Broken, Everyone is Broken” gets me. I’m not sure what this song is about, probably lost love and broken hearts, if its not, then it damn well should be.
