“This dance is like a weapon”
Haunting and heartbreakingly beautiful
This album deserves your time and patience
This isn’t an album to have on shuffle. It’s not one to listen to randomly when you’re driving down a loud freeway or anything else where it’s just on in the background. This album is intimate, emotional, and beautiful. Any of the reviewers saying “it’s just sounds” or “it’s boring” isn’t giving it proper attention. Listen to it with headphones, sink into it in a dark room. This album is strong, and with a gripping opener, and emotionally crippling ending, I don’t see how anyone who actually listened to it would rate it less than 3 stars.
Me: *sees the song title “burn the witch”*
Also me: *gets Harry Potter wand* DONT U DARE TOUCH QUEEN BELLATRIX LESTRANGE

It grows on you, Great Album
An Absolute Masterwork
Deeply mature and continually complex in every way in which music is capable. It is haunting. It touches my soul. This is one of their greatest works. Please take my advice - buy it.
The Emperors Have No Clothes
By Treasure Tones
A lot of years wasted. Nice toe tappers here and there since OK Computer, like Good Morning Mr. Magpie, but nothing nearly as satisfying as a whole. But if subpar electronic Jazz is your thing, these fine Englishmen have plenty to offer. Maybe they’ll get tired of their nearly 20 year gimmick and start writing and recording good songs again. I wish them well.

Radioheads Achieves Masterpiece: Album So Weird No One Listens To It
From least to most favorite, I've found all of Radiohead's albums enjoyable, that is, through In Rainbows. Since then, it's like they just don't care anymore. Hey, maybe they don't and that's fine. "Make the music you want to make" should be every artists goal. Sadly, as a result, I've haven't been able to enjoy anything they've done since 2007. They've de-evolved into a mystic yet soulless sounds like some kind of electronic jazz where everyone just does whatever the hell they want. I'm sure their hardcore "they can do no wrong" fans love it, as it seems they always relish being the only Radiohead fan in the room. "You just don't get it..." which naturally gives one a sense of superiority. Yep, you're right. I don't get it, and I'm not ashamed of it.
By The Wolf At Your Door
This is the album, you put on on the bleakest night in the dead of winter. Sit tight by the hearth, listen to the fire crackle. Let it coincide with Thom's delicate whispers, and moans. The chill mountain air will bite at you while, Desert Island Disk, sets the tempo for the night. And Ful Stop resonates and joins the chorus of wolves howling off in the distance. I should know I live up in the Mountains of Montana. GET THIS ALBUM!!
A beautiful, haunting, and poignant record. Subtle yet full of visceral emotional power. I've played it through a few times and it grows on me more with each listen. One of Radiohead's best albums but I advise giving it time to absorb. Brilliant stuff.
