New Radiohead

Best band ever. No info on the new album ever, even for the band who got album of the decade for the past 2 decades. Then all of a sudden, *bam* "we have an album out in 5 days".

I only listen to Kid A and Ok Computer and I think both are pretty great. I always mean to check out the rest but have yet to grab another album. I think I'll buy this record as an early birthday present for myself (Feb 23) :P just because I can. Also been meaning to buy either Ok Computer or Kid A LPs on Amazon as they are both cheap.

Get the rest of them, it's pretty neat. Even tho their newer stuff (In Rainbows) isn't much like the old Radiohead it's just as good

what the hell, I ordered the new one but its not shipping until May 19th, but a digital download will come Saturday. I guess that is to be expected when there are no limited quantities leaving thousands of people to order.

I don't like it as much as In Rainbows. Feels too short. Maybe it'll grow on me.

when you can get over the excitement of it as a NEW RADIOHEAD ALBUM and just settle down with it, it turns out to be a set of pretty great songs.

Isn't there a second part of the album coming out? It's grown on me quite a bit. But every Radiohead album feels pretty different than the pretty different than the next, or feels like a spiritual successor (first 5 tracks of In Rainbows and Ok Computer mix together if you have a 10 second fade between songs, for a 1-2 hour super-album). This happens to feel like Amnesiac/Eraser 2.0 for me. Its growing quite a bit

Amnesiac is clearly the superior album. And the only real choice for real men.

Yeah the last track is called "Separator" so people are assuming that there is more. It also wouldn't make sense for a 37 minute album to be spread over 2 vinyls.

I really like this album, the song structures don't appear as complex as their other stuff. But there is this nice laid back feel to the whole album, like there's not much going on but still enough to pull a reaction from you. Lotus Flower has to be one of the catchiest songs they have made. Plus the video rules: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cfOa1a8hYP8

Well you are right about that. It may grow on me in the future, but I can't say I liked anything from it with the first 2 listens.
