Radiohead never fails to impress me. Their latest album, “The King of Limbs” is something special. They announced about a week ago that they were going to release an album on their website and so they did. That’s it. No unnecessary promotion, no lead single, just a cohesive body of work. How refreshing. Granted, not every band has the type of fanbase that allows them to do this, but it just shows that there are still people in the music industry who can think for themselves. The actual music is great too. Thom Yorke continues with the more electronic sound he crafted on “The Eraser” and applies the same sort of vibe to this album. From the electronically programmed drums, to the haunting vocals, to the minimalistic but effective melodies, the entire album is a great listen.
