4.0 out of 5 stars Cheap Cardboard Covers?, 18 July 2006
This review is from: The Eraser (Audio CD)
First off, this is pure Thom genius. Haunting, melodic. If I have a criticism it's that it's not particularly surprising. If you'd have thought about what a Thom Yorke solo album would have sounded like before you heard it you might well have imagined this record. Which may well be a good thing, hey?

Some dunce gave this album one star and complained that it even came in a 'cheep (sic) cardboard cover'. Having had the luck to have a little inside insight on this project I think you should know that the cardboard was very deliberately chosen for its lack of environmental impact. I also think it's rather more beautiful than the same old plastic crap.

The gorgeous cover's designed by Radiohead collaborator Stanley Donwood BTW, I heartily recommend his book, 'Slowly Downward', also available on this site.

and in any case, cardboard covers are actually MORE expensive not less...

I've always hated cardboard cases (having a case that scratches the disc kinda defeats the purpose, no?), but this accordion thing still has to be the most annoying one I've ever seen.
