An underrated and melodic offering by radiohead. Interesting beat running through the album, courtesy of Phil Selway's drums. Bloom is unlike anything previously by radiohead and sets the beat for the rest of the album. There are some instantly likeable tracks, for example Codex and Give Up the Ghost, and others that really grow after a number of listens, like Little by Little, which at first I found Thom Yorke's vocals a tad whiney, but after hearing it live with better vocals, started to really appreciate the song, especially the unusual out of kilter timing. The album has a dreamy trippy feel at times, summed up most by the final track Separator with Thom Yorke falling out of bed from a long and vivid dream to an almost George Harrisonesque twinkling guitar riff.
A great album that deserves repeated listens to really appreciate it. A definite 5 stars.
