first impressions?

having listened to the whole thing all the way through for the first time i can safely say i probably won't like this as much as In Rainbows. However after hearing the single i thought they were going to make a straight pop album and i was worried. That single is the only really accessible song on the album. The album has much more depth than that and has the potential to be a real grower.

On to listen #2.

Re: track listing & single

Right on man.
He just looks retarded in there. I used to respect him as a musican for staying cool and "relatively" low key but I am not sure I will after watching this horrible video.

I never understand how people can think they are the best band int he world. They are rather consistent but they never peaked like or as long as Stereolab.

Re: first impressions?

I sat down and listened about three times through on headphones last night. I like it a lot. I suspect threre's a part 2 looming, a la In Rainbows.

Re: Radiohead 'King of Limbs'

It's a great little album! I really like it.

I've got a feeling they'll drop a few more tunes soon.

Re: Radiohead 'King of Limbs'

I listened to it twice last night with my man. there's nothing to dislike about it. nothing really stood out though. I wanted a "Reckoner" type moment. perhaps in time...

is good but not great

after many many listens now and *ahem* differentiated orientation...i think i got a grasp on it.

i don't think it's one of the better Radiohead albums unfortunately. Not near In Rainbows anyway. Below average for Radiohead, but still good in the larger scheme. Even Radiohead NOT on top of their game is still rewarding listening. i am comforted in the fact that they did try something new again. They didn't rest. They didn't go backwards. No new barriers smashed either, but it's still not exactly like any of their other albums. Similar to Amnesiac in my opinion, but not exactly. It's a little brief and leaves me wishing for more, which is probably what they intended. i was thinking that if i had to make a mix cd of my favorite all-time Radiohead songs, i don't know if any of these songs would make the cut. Maybe Codex. That said, i still like the album a lot. Radiohead just sets the bar so high for me. i'm hoping they do release some more stuff from this session.
