Atoms for Peace are of a sort of "supergroup" (don't groan!) fronted by Thom Yorke of the popular beat combo Radiohead. Around the table with him are long-time producer Nigel Godrich, the serial collaborator Flea from Red Hot Chili Peppers, REM/Beck drummer Joey Waronker and another Chili Peppers' luminary Brazilian percussionist Mauro Refosco. Radiohead's last album "King of Limbs" split the jury with its freeform, quirky and mechanistic beats not least in its first half. It was nonetheless a grower and in any case Yorke shows no desire to play to the gallery and return to the big rock sounds of "The Bends" or "OK Computer".
This project according to Yorke was the product of a session which involved rather too much wine and spirits where he and Flea ended up "tired and emotional" after spending hours listening to Fela Kuti. The influence of African funk rhythms can be clearly located on "AMOK" not least on the nice opener "Before your very eyes" but if anything the star of the show is Goodrich whose synth playing is everywhere. Overall "Amok" is a much happier affair than the "King of Limbs" although in parts its does have some experimentation that's a bit undercooked and for this reviewer doesn't have the immediacy of "Eraser". The album is about shifts and contrasts no more so than on track such as the excellent "Default" with its slabs of synth and typical Yorke lyrics about "making my bed and lying in it". The fourth song "Dropped" is possibly the best thing on "Amok". It is darkly twisted and has a beautifully cynical York vocal which echoes back to "Hail to the Thief" era Radiohead. Some songs, however.Read more ›
Thom Yorke never fails to excel in his art.
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.
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.
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.
