  • The track opens up briefly with an acoustic guitar pattern which continues playing despite a lead guitar part coming in over it which creates an interesting sound
  • I must say that I wished Radiohead would have continued on with this guitar interplay for a bit, but unfortunately Yorke’s vocals come in incredibly quickly, and I must admit it took me quite a while before I could stand his vocal performance throughout the verse
  • The problem I had was that his voice came in incredibly abruptly and it also sounded as if he was a bit off key, though now I don’t really have a big problem with it
  • Overall, I must admit that I really enjoyed the guitar work throughout this track, although I do wish that Radiohead had explored more the interplay between the opening clean rhythm and the lead that came in over it

      Just is a song by Radiohead which appears on their second album, The Bends. The track opens up briefly with an acoustic guitar pattern which continues playing despite a lead guitar part coming in over it which creates an interesting sound.

      I must say that I wished Radiohead would have continued on with this guitar interplay for a bit, but unfortunately Yorke’s vocals come in incredibly quickly, and I must admit it took me quite a while before I could stand his vocal performance throughout the


      verse.

      The problem I had was that his voice came in incredibly abruptly and it also sounded as if he was a bit off key, though now I don’t really have a big problem with it.

      While the vocal delivery throughout the first two verses of the track are fairly melodic, the performance throughout the track is more aggressive both vocally and musically.

      Following the second chorus, the band goes into an instrumental section which features a guitar solo which starts out as distorted but soon ...


      • transitions into a cleaner tone.

        Overall, I must admit that I really enjoyed the guitar work throughout this track, although I do wish that Radiohead had explored more the interplay between the opening clean rhythm and the lead that came in over it.

        I will say right now that the vocals to Just may not be quite as accessible as some of the other tracks on The Bends, but I would say that it would certainly be worth giving this track a few listens before dismissing

        it, because it actually turns out to be a pretty good track.

        What I particularly like about this track is that as it progresses towards its end, Yorke’s delivery just gets even better and if you compared his vocal performance on the final chorus to the first, you’d really get an understanding of this.

        Also, Radiohead chooses to go out with a bang on this track and ends with an entertaining instrumental section, though it unfortunately ends very abruptly and awkwardly.

        Nevertheless, Just is yet another strong product from Radiohead.
