This band need no introduction, any album with Thom Yorke usually sells.
So no surprises here. The vinyl is very well made and package.

First listen, did not get into it. The music kind of aimless... I guess Thom is in his dupstep mode again. Flea as usual with all his funk in his blood, very predictable.

Second and third listen, I gave it another shot. It is a ok album, nothing special nothing fantastic. This isn't his best work, I still very much prefer the old Thom in Radiohead.

Having said all that, it is still a good album to owned and listen to when you feel like dancing.

Superb album,and a real grower. Each track is a different emotional trip for me and is Thom Yorke at his best. Superb vocals and a great sound to the whole album. Awesome....

It took me a few plays to get into this album but now i cannot stop playing it.
Thom Yorke never fails to excel in his art.

Got the cd but then managed to get hold of the ltd edn 9 lp screen printed box set. Resisted opening it for 4 months but now played it. What a revelation1 The vinyl is a universe apart from the cd...now in a magical world rather than a pleasant place. Donn't need to say any more apart from just get the box set (if you can)

Very good. Not quite all the way through but it is very good on a few tracks...now I must get around to buying the Eraser by Thome Yorke and would be very cool if he and the rest of Radiohead were back to recording a new album.

Thome Yorke and the rest of Radiohead are for me a modern collection of musical geniuses.

Not many around anymore and Floyd, Moby, Jarre, Oldfield along with a few others like the Doors and Zeppelin belong to this unique group, for me, of creating ground breaking music...so you tend to pay attention to anything they do! Lol.

For me, Thom Yorke's debut solo album, The Eraser, was already on a par with if not superior to the best of Radiohead's output. Amok, technically recorded by Atoms for Peace though Thom Yorke's direction is unmistakeable, continues and reinforces that trend - Amok outshines anything Thom Yorke has recorded so far, as part of Radiohead or otherwise. This is a bold claim but the strength of this record is such that I am more than happy to make it.

The production on this record is something I have never before experienced - utterly perfect and mesmerizing. The percussions alone would make a fine album. Add in the base, the keyboards, the voice, the electronic tidbits and the vast array of instruments and this is a classic album in the making. All the songs seem to surpass each other and they're already all favourites of mine.

Of course I need to make clear that I love Thom Yorke's development as an artist from alternative rock to electro-rock and that for me the best of Radiohead's work starts with Kid A, much as I like The Bends and OK Computer. If you're fortunate enough to own a decent and above average sound system, this record will titillate your ears and your mind in a way that no other record in existence can quite manage - of course, this is my personal opinion.

I cannot thank Atoms for Peace (and Amazon) enough for this gem of a record.

Five stars easy

With Thom Yorke as the front man you know exactly what you are going to get. An electronic experimental album... but it is not really that experimental as both the recent Radiohead and solo albums are quite similar. Flea (RHCP) brings a bounce to the baseline which actually gives all the songs a quick pace... unfortunately this also makes them a little samey.

...I suspect you will love this also!

Although an almost out and out electronic sound has be opted for here this album retains Thom Yorke’s distinctively melancholic, brooding and almost maudlin signature style.

This is a great album by Thom Yorke and his great choice in percussion artists. The unexpected sound (with which we were slightly familiar from previous Radiohead albums) give a great balance to Yorke's voice and guitar.
