I think the new album is excellent - synapse firing, thoughtful music.
But that's me...
I can easily imagine a swathe of people who would just not ... get it.
If you hated Kid A, or In Rainbows, you'll not like this.
If your last 'pickup point' was 'Ok Computer' and you got it because your mate was raving about it and then never listened again... you'll not like this.
If you've never heard Radiohead before, but like esoteric bleeps, whistles, grunge, dub & bass and eerie soulful sounds, you'll like this.
If your name is Dave and you live at No.3 Erstwhile Avenue, Gruntlethorpe, East Gruntstead, you'll definately like it.
On the other hand, if your his neighbour, Jimbo, you'll not care for it one whit.
Having cleared all that up, it's a cracking album full of joyless bleeps, depressing whistles, grinding guitars, soulful wailing and other assorted radiohead shenanagins.
