In Rainbows' Murky Twin,
This review is from: The King of Limbs (Audio CD)
This low-key 37-minute long gem is not as warm or as sensual as 2007's 'In Rainbows', but after a few listens it becomes apparent that it is from a similar musical stable. From the opening of 'Bloom' the listener is taken on a journey of otherworldly beauty, but what most staggers the mind is how Radiohead are once again able to imbue a strong naturalistic feel among such electronic sounds.
Special honours go to Phil Selway and the brilliance of his drumming, which are pushed to the forefront over the first half of the album, while Thom Yorke's voice is eerie and angelic in equal dosage, none more so than on the spine-tingling 'Codex'. Overall, 'The King of Limbs' represents a splendid progression of the Radiohead catalogue.
