    It’s super pretty. I’m happy to hear a proper version of Identikit.

  • Wizza

    Well thanks, Radiohead, for hugely de-incentivising the purchase of a physical product by for no reason not including a download alongside. So, as someone who will always want a CD copy of an album, I won’t be hearing it until June while more casual listeners get it now. Very disappointed. What possible reason could there be for doing that?!

  • Rob Maher

    This band is amazing. I can’t even say that I love the whole album but I don’t even care. I’m just so glad that Radiohead is still making the music that THEY want to make. And it always tends to be completely brilliant and fresh.

    Re: my initial assessment of the album. I like Burn the Witch a lot. I like Daydreaming. I LOVE Present Tense.

    And I love that True Love Waits has finally been recorded 21 years after they initially debuted it live. Amazing. Talking about patience; waiting 21 years to finally come to an arrangement worth recording. But it makes sense. After all, true love waits.

  • Tiago Maia

    I’m not ashamed to reveal that I almost cried hearing “True Love Waits”.
    I can’t quite give full grades to all the songs yet, but this record is beyond good. very pleased to be a Radiohead fan.

  • Ian Cisneros

    I absolutely love the album. I’ve only listened to it once but I’m waiting until tomorrow to give it a second go. I read a story in NME’s Website of this being Radiohead’s swan song. At first I thought it was non-sense but then I remembered that each of the Limited Edition prints will have a piece of their recordings, You could get a a bit of recording from Kid A or any other of their albums. I know it may sound crazy, but maybe it’s symbolizes something? With each album, they’ve taken longer breaks. Maybe they pulling away from the music scene? Maybe their publicity stunt from erasing all record from their social media is sign of this. Would like to know the input from anyone about this 🙂

  • Rob Maher

    I think that it’s impossible to say whether or not Radiohead will put out any more music. The plain truth is that no one knows, not even the band themselves. Why bother deciding whether or not to make any more music in the future? They just put out this awesome album. If they want to take an indefinite break from music now, of course it would be understandable. If then, in the future, they decide to get together again to make another record, they can. If not, fine. No decisions on the band’s future need to be made right now.

  • I was wondering the same. The immediate download is included in the premium box but only a delayed download option for vinyl and none at all for CD does not make sense to me.

    liking the new album more and more with each listen. However true love waits was always one of my favourite radiohead songs ever and this version feels like a missed opportunity. From the reviews i’ve read i am in the minority with this thought, but its feels wafer thin as though it’s tacked on as an afterthought. If only they took the acoustic guitar of the live version and built an epic orchestral arrangement around the wonderful lyrics with the band kicking in halfway through maybe, then this could have been an amazing song. As it is the off kilter piano sounds out of time with his voice and one of my favourite songs has now been ruined. I’d rather it had been left off the album rather than this version and i think daydreaming would’ve made a better album closer.

  • Brine Crow

    So you can listen to it for free on YouTube or via a streaming service (other than Spotify). Not a big deal, really.

  • Wizza

    I don’t want to listen to a new album for this first time on youtube, and I don’t pay for a streaming service. It’s a huge oversight, and really leaves a sour taste in the mouth.

  • Rob Maher

    I disagree, as I bet a lot of people do. You’re entitled to that opinion though. The I Might Be Wrong Live Recordings version is already a really nice acoustic guitar arrangement. The 1995 Brussels recording is a great rendition of it too. This new version attacks the song from a different angle. But I think the sparse piano arrangement really works well with the feeling of this song.

  • YrCityIsASucker

    Agreed. Love the new take on it. It works great as an album closer here. Man, I used to frequent this website back in the day to get my lyrics covered. Nice to see it again.

  • YrCityIsASucker

    Ugh. I hope this isn’t the end, but if so, what a way to go out.

  • radiohead saves the days… again
    well done.

  • Tobiashy

    Radiohead, I actually dont like Thom Yorke much but this group is really good. A Moon Shaped Pool really good album.
