An Album of 2 Halves - 4.5 Stars,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The King of Limbs (Audio CD)
The King of Limbs certainly feels like a fresh start for Radiohead.
The title of this review refers to 2 Halves, and I say so because the first 4 tracks sound experimental and at times somewhat repetitive, as though the band are trying to work their way into new musical surroundings. However, from Lotus Flower through to Codex, Give Up The Ghost and finally Separator, the quality reaches new heights. Haunting, emotional and beautiful.
Radiohead have a knack of being able to blend guitar music with electronica and other variables and produce quality music and the aforementioned 2nd half of the album is a prime example of this. If the next album is along the lines of the 2nd half of The King of Limbs, it'll be outstanding.
