Product Description

BBC Review

It's fitting that The King of Limbs is the first Radiohead album to receive the full-length remix treatment. It's their first album since 2000's Kid A to swing away from traditional rock techniques, seamlessly incorporating electronic music elements at the heart of the songwriting. Where much of Hail to the Thief and In Rainbows seems to have originated on guitar or piano before taking on additional digital light and shade, the loops, samples and textures of The King of Limbs are integral parts of the whole.

It's also the album that most blatantly foregrounds the extraordinary power and flexibility of Radiohead's rhythm section, and especially Phil Selway's virtuoso drumming. So great is the impression it leaves that when Modeselektor roll out a standard thumping kick drum, on Good Evening Mrs Magpie, disappointment inevitably results. Despite some other lacklustre inclusions (SBTRKT's vocal garage take on Lotus Flower, Pearson Sound's unremarkable 808 reconfiguration of Morning Mr Magpie) , invention just about has the upper hand on this 19-track double album, which compiles tracks originally released on limited-edition 12-inches between July and September.

Modeselektor - lauded in electronic music circles, perhaps previously unknown to a fair proportion of Radiohead fans - are among the better-known names represented here, many of whom reflect the ear for the electronic underground long displayed by the playlists Thom Yorke posts on the band's blog, Dead Air Space. Other more widely known names include Four Tet, Caribou and Jamie xx. The first of these, who supplied a superb remix of Atoms for Peace, from Thom Yorke's solo album The Eraser, invests Separator with a muffled beat that moves at a half-speed lurch, cunningly clumsy and euphoric all at once. Manchester's Illum Sphere shifts the desolate Codex into a more upbeat register, but transmits melancholy via a ringing, recurrent two-note synth stab. Berlin producer Shed, whose own work shifts skilfully between genres, brings an authentic techno mentality to his remix, stripping down Little by Little to build a grainy rhythmic grid from a handful of its original elements. Less complex but still compelling, Blawan reconfigures Bloom (the most popular track among the remixers, featuring five times here) as a relentless, juddering slab of dubstep-inflected techno, the song boiled down to a series of protracted, growling chords pinned beneath an oppressive beat. Caribou swaps the knotty rattle of Little by Little for an airy harp riff set above a crisp breakbeat and metronomic bass pulse, fragments of Yorke's treated vocal passing back and forth above the track.

Perhaps best of all is Nathan Fake's take on Morning Mr Magpie, where mournful pads, organ-like groans of modulated guitar and a rapid-fire percussive shuffle develop into psychedelic grandeur. It highlights what's most appealing about this remix package: its most successful examples retain some Radiohead DNA, but reconstituted into a new form. That's fitting testament to a band that remains eager to avoid repeating themselves.

Format: Audio CD
It's fair to say that 'The King Of Limbs' was recieved with little more than muted praise, something along the lines of "Another Radiohead LP of - interesting - experimentation." Which is a shame as 'TKOL' contained some of the most beautiful music Radiohead have ever released. The previous release, 'In Rainbows', saw them embracing melody, simplicity and emotion in a great leap forward from 'Hail To The Thief's' slightly overwhelming screed of protest, bile and musical grit and with 'TKOL' they have completed the journey with exqusite songs such as 'Give Up The Ghost', 'Codex' and 'Lotus Flower'.

With 'TKOL RMX 1234567' they've handed those 37 delicate minutes of music over to a host of remixers and let them do their thing and in a move similar to the way 'Live Recordings' reflected different aspects of 'Kid A' and 'Amnesiac', here elements of 'The King Of Limbs' are removed expanded, polished, spun and re-ordered to create something entirely new but wholly satisfying.

At a little under three times the original LPs running time, there's considerably more to get your teeth into and many of the remixes are far more full bodied than the original tracks on 'The King Of Limbs'. Interesting.

The good news is that it works brilliantly, with the remixers managing to keep the emotional essence of each of the original tracks intact whilst making them entirely new.

Radiohead must be thrilled; I know I am.

In typical Radiohead style this album avoids all the usual `remix' clichés & heads off boldly down it's own path.
There are no shrinking violets here as every track is given a big makeover and all are presented loud and proud.
To be honest not everything works but with such a lengthy selection to choose from you are bound to find a few that appeal. I have never been much of a fan of drum & bass and those tracks that are re-worked heavily in a D & B style don't convince me to change my opinion. However there are a generous amount of mixes here that really do show an understanding of the Radiohead style and manage to add a unique approach that surprises the listener.
A sound reminiscent of BOC & Stars of the lid with a Solar Fields vibe is to the fore amongst the first half of the album and makes for a laidback and chilled atmosphere that always seems to have something unexpected lurking to catch you unawares. This is particularly the case if listening on headphones.
Some tracks that stand out to me are the Caribou remix of 'little by little', a looped beat is suddenly completely overrun by beautiful harp track & sampled vocals that drift in & out of the track. 'Morning Mr magpie' Nathan Fake remix remixes the vocals & Thom ends up sounding like Perry Farrell with Stars of the lid like loops.
The Blawan remix of 'Bloom' is potty with a thumping groove & stereo effects buzzing left & right. Not sure if I love it or hate it but it's impossible to ignore & pretty much sums up the whole album.
I have been listening at night on my i-pod with the lights out and the opening half really works as far as I'm concerned with a great showcase for some top notch programming and mixing.

having already got every radiohead cd ever made, this was a compulsory purchase, it certainly put a different slant on some of the tracks, but it's a cd to listen to when you have time to hear it properly, preferably through a good set of headphones

If you enjoy the modern sounding Technical and complex sides to experimental music, then you will absolutely love this Remix album. This Album represents evolutionary experimentation of where Thom Yorke is at right now.

The depth of musical knowledge and open minded abilities of Thom Yorke, is truly ore inspiring to any like minded music fanatic...

Although it has to be said that the style has moved on from the original days of Radiohead. I can only see this as a positive step forward, as they clearly display the sign of the times in how they perceive and appreciate all kinds of music. Exploring the depths and spectrum of Technical Electronica.

All in all an exceptional move forward in modern music....

Radiohead are as they say like Marmite. You either love 'em or hate 'em. As one firmly in the love 'em camp, TKOL Rmx is like Marmite with even more Marmite. First listen my reaction was 'this is a step too far' with disk 1 challenging and the second unfathomable. I know one fan who sold it after one play but as with many Radiohead albums TKOL Rmx gets under the skin after a while and reveals some great tracks. A month or so down the tracks I would now say that disc 1 is for the most part interesting with one or two tracks rivaling if not surpassing the originals. However disc 2 is still largely bonkers and one for the most ardent of fans only. All in all, not the best Radiohead album by far but worth having in your collection if you are prepared to give it a few listens. Marmite on the other hand, well that's a different proposition altogether!
