I like their approach.
Thanks for waiting, we're gonna release a record like, this week, hope that's cool with everybody.

They've not published a tracklist anywhere, have they?

In Rainbows was staggering, I have high hopes for this record.

Yeah I'll download it but I've never greeted Radiohead news or listened to a Radiohead album with any enthusiasm. They've had a few good tracks in the past though.

I mean I know Radiohead is a big deal and all that but I hit maturity way past their initial "holy shit" factor so now they just sound like Radiohead and not some world-moving game-changer (which I'm not even sure they were, but w/e).

I kind of have to agree. Not saying everything else in the decade sucked, but I really liked In Rainbows.

Still can't sign on to preorder this without hearing at least some of the material first.

I mean, I was pretty excited, but I think Radiohead is passed the phase of actually releasing monolithic albums. They'll still release a great product, I'm sure, but I'd be surprised if it was a magnum opus.

Damned if In Rainbows wasn't a great album, though.

Loved In Rainbows, can't imagine I won't love this too. Pre-ordered the "Newspaper Edition", if its anything as awesome as the discbox I'll be pleased. 2x clear 10"s are hard to argue with.

Oh right. Well yeah, I don't think even Radiohead thinks that, seeing as they're waiting til 5 days before releasing it to let everyone know what's up.

EDIT: Kinda bummed that they're not doing pay-what-you-want this time, I was looking forward to not paying very much for this.

I actually think In Rainbows was as good as OK Computer/Kid A, it just wasn't seen as an artistic leap forward or whatever.

Whatever, they're my favourite band and they're bringing out a new album this weekend. FUCK. YES.

Hey I enjoy Radiohead's music a lot but it's not like they're the Second Coming and all, something a large number of Radiohead fans seem to think. I thought In Rainbows was their best effort since Kid A and am looking forward to this one (but not the inevitable wave of Thom Yorke dick-sucking)

This, pretty much. I like The Bends and OK Computer, but I feel like I was more into this band growing up. I mean I get they're influential and blah blah, but I really don't think they're anything special anymore.

Radiohead still and always probably will hold a special place in my heart. The first band I ever saw in concert. And it was amazing.

  • uh oh

I've been considering what to make of this sudden announcement and the album's immanent release, and while I would be loath to lavish all kinds of praise on Radiohead, they consistently release records I find something I like in, and I've never completely ignored a Radiohead album the way I did, say, The Suburbs. So while I'm not gonna get huge hopes or expect anything in particular, I'm definitely going to listen to this when it comes out.

that last photo pretty neatly encapsulates why I dig Radiohead more now than when they were doing all the "important " stuff they did.

Hey, kids! Do you think "King of Limbs" is an extremely dumb thing to call a record? You're right, but it turns out the explanation behind it is actually quite cool;

Quote
The name of the new album relates to an oak tree in Wiltshire’s Savernake Forest, thought to be around 1,000 years old. The forest lies around three miles away from Tottenham House, a listed country house where Radiohead recorded part of In Rainbows.

This was posted like 30 seconds ago. Enjoying the song, it's sort of HTTT-esque. Video's funny too. Director is Garth Jennings aka Hammer & Tongs (of the Blur "Coffee and TV" milk carton video).

Song was apparently played live a time or two, but Radiohead previews stuff live a lot.

So it's out now for anybody who has bought it, or like me bought it as soon as you read that it was out already even though it still says pre-order.

Opens strongly.

Wow, this is too electronic for my liking.

Even after In Rainbows? Thom Yorke seems to be incorporating some of the influences that he first put forth on 'The Eraser', and I like it.

Also, listen to Codex some more. What a track.

I am loving this. Wine might be helping.

Just finished my first listen, and was really impressed. It sounds like nothing they've done before, but exactly like Radiohead. I can never really tell about the quality of an album after one listen, but here are some thoughts:
1) The first half is certainly the most rhythmically complex I've heard from a Radiohead album. I think KvP was right about the HTTT reference, it's got the same feel as The Gloaming or Backdrifts. I think it does sound electronic, but not in a Warp sort-of-a-way they've done before, sounds like they've used the electronics to provide trickier rhythms to some of the songs.
2) It doesn't sound as varied in tone or style as In rainbows. I get the feeling they restricted their palette alot more for this album than their previous 4 or 5.
3) The bleeding from Codex to Giving Up The Ghost is utterly fantastic.
4) It is the exact correct length for an album.

John A said this one should be on Warp Records. Fair assessment?
Present-day Warp, sure. The B-side (tracks 5-8) are really quite different from the first 4, though. Might've worked better as a double-EP.
