Re: Tracks that take on a whole new life through headphones.
Radiohead sounds awesome with headphones, couldn't pinpoint exact tracks as I like listening to it from beginning to end. It's like it's telling a story, I guess everyone interprets music differently, which is the beauty of it really. Especially the Ok Computer and In Rainbows Cd's. It is very experimental so when you listen on headphones you hear a lot of quirky sound effects that you might normally miss. It's not really the type of music that you have as background music when you're chatting with your mates, rather in a dark room with no disturbances and a clear mind with massive FUCK OFF headphones for the full immersive experience.
I was also gonna suggest Porcupine Tree and VAST but someone already has so
Yep. Radiohead's layers in songs reminds me a lot of Pink Floyd. There are things you'd never even notice without headphones on those songs.
Vast is criminally overlooked. Up there with NIN and Tool for my favorite music.
The background vocals on the chorus would never be heard on regular speakers.
