Customer Review

on 17 October 2011
It's fair to say that 'The King Of Limbs' was recieved with little more than muted praise, something along the lines of "Another Radiohead LP of - interesting - experimentation." Which is a shame as 'TKOL' contained some of the most beautiful music Radiohead have ever released. The previous release, 'In Rainbows', saw them embracing melody, simplicity and emotion in a great leap forward from 'Hail To The Thief's' slightly overwhelming screed of protest, bile and musical grit and with 'TKOL' they have completed the journey with exqusite songs such as 'Give Up The Ghost', 'Codex' and 'Lotus Flower'.

With 'TKOL RMX 1234567' they've handed those 37 delicate minutes of music over to a host of remixers and let them do their thing and in a move similar to the way 'Live Recordings' reflected different aspects of 'Kid A' and 'Amnesiac', here elements of 'The King Of Limbs' are removed expanded, polished, spun and re-ordered to create something entirely new but wholly satisfying.

At a little under three times the original LPs running time, there's considerably more to get your teeth into and many of the remixes are far more full bodied than the original tracks on 'The King Of Limbs'. Interesting.

The good news is that it works brilliantly, with the remixers managing to keep the emotional essence of each of the original tracks intact whilst making them entirely new.

Radiohead must be thrilled; I know I am.
