Coldplayer;4299073 said:That's not a real album. I tried to listen to it that way and it sounds way better seperated.
rab39;4298959 said:I love all three of Radiohead's phases but I still prefer the middle one. The "My Iron Lung" EP was groundbreaking...and the resulting full lengther "The Bends" showed and proved that the band wasn't a one-hit-wonder band. I wish they would release a true follow-up to that, but doubt it will ever happen.Rolling Stone ranks it highest although most everywhere else says Ok Computer.Any and all Radiohead is great.

Whow. Disappointment.I'm just halfway through the album but meh.After the awesome Harry Patch and These Are My Twisted Words (both two of my favorite Radiohead songs) I expected something great.But you know how this album feels? Like Amnesiac 2.0. And Amnesiac is definitely my least favorite album. Although even songs like Pyramid song, You And Whose Army or I Might Be Wrong are at least awesome standout songs, while on King of Limbs I'm not sure if there is anything awesome on it. Yeah, I'm not through yet, but this thing is only 38 minutes long (really short for calling it an album). I'm on track 5 now. Lotus Flower. The first one that sounds solid. But still not really outstanding.I know, Radiohead albums always need some time to get into, but this seems ridiculous.EDIT: Are there any guitars on that album? xDEDIT2: Oh, and don't get me wrong. It's not bad. But also not really that great.EDIT3: Okay, the end is getting better and there are some highlights finally! Codex is beautiful and Give Up The Ghost is actually one of the songs I knew already and definitely the best so far on this album!(LAST?) EDIT: Ok, I'm through. Last song was ok, but little bit repetitive. Maybe needs more listens. Well. Only two good song, while Give Up The Ghost is actually great. But other than that... it's short and I expected much more.

Runesmith;4304993 said:This album confirms my idea that Radiohead (at least post-The Bends Radiohead) doesn't write songs, but jams. It's both a good and bad thing.
afterstasis;4308646 said:It's a good album, but in the wake of the release I'm reminded that it's genuinely depressing how much attention this band gets at this point.
