First impression:

some very beautiful stuff that takes the band in a slightly altered direction while mostly holding onto the minimalist ooooooaaaaahhh bleep bleep bloop that has characterized the second half of their career. I like it but I'm not sure it makes the kind of commanding statement I was hoping for like IR. I don't think it sounds uninspired, but it almost feels like the band feels they have nothing left to prove. I wouldn't say I am disappointed, and because it's Radiohead it's really difficult to make a judgement based on one listen, but I wish there were a little more energy on the album. Like a lot of their newer stuff, it's hard for me to shake the perception that Thom Yorke is doing 75% of the work

~Apparently Johnny Greenwood had a lot of input, writing the string parts, etc.

I don't like the snoring sounds at the end of 'Daydreaming'.

Downloading it now

Don't have to feel bad because I already bought the CD, I'm just waiting for it. So, I'm not really pirating any more than I would be if I just ripped the CD

I don't know why I'm justifying this as some exceptional case when most of the music I have on my harddrive is pirated anyway

It's so much like Faust which has to be one of their biggest influences

All of this stuff does what I think Radiohead did best with Kid A this Krautrock with a singer with an ear for pop hooks

It just sounds like more radiohead, to me.

I like it more than TKOL
the strings are a hit or miss for me, but I'm glad they went that direction, it is like the opposite from York's solo stuff

does anyone else think ending with True Love Waits is a really weird choice? how many of these songs are old?

tbh it's sounding a lot better to me today. coming around on it.
some of it still sounds oddly non engaging though. i'll listen to it a few more times before i'll really have an opinion.

soooo this album might actually be a work of staggering genius. There's a lot to digest. This is the most subtle Radiohead album, and everything came to life in a different way with good headphones and hellatrees in my mind.

lolol guys

well the most incredible thing happened.
after smoking the weed i had bought, and not feeling a goddamn thing over a couple of different times, tonight i went over to beavis' house and smoked a phat joint that got me really tripping.

i have thought of what could cause such a perplexing conundrum, and have arrived that the conclusion that i must have smoked it wrong.

thank you all for you time.
