      Radiohead’s new album The King of Limbs was released this morning by surprise instead of Saturday. It seemed as though this enigmatic album popped out of nowhere. It starts out with a track called “Bloom” it begins with a blur of sampled piano, blipping synth, and a cool dark pad. Thom Yorke’s voice rings in with that distinct tenor.

      Bloom is a very glitchy yet beautifully dark song filled with interweaving lines


      of harmonics. “Morning Mr. Magpie” track two is the polar opposite of bloom.

      Starting with a muted arpeggio with a funky twist on the drums making for some very unique instrumentation. Plenty of small breaks that twist into a semi-electronic darkness. “Little by Little” A very untraditional song even by Radiohead standards, littered with minimal drum sequences and what sound like tapping on metal.

      Thom’s echo laden voice almost makes you slip into a trance. “Feral” Very quick DnB like drums and a very well spaced synth stab. Heavily modulated vocals are played flipped and flipped again that is almost unnerving but could perhaps make a good dance track.

      “Lotus Flower” Makes your head spin into orbit. A blend of chimes, break beat drums, and numerous synthesizes. Thom utilizes his amazing falsetto in this song, the repeating lyrics blurring and buzzing around in ...

      your head.

      “Codex” A classic grand piano breaks the silence setting up for Thom’s vocals all of which dark yet cleansing. String arrangements by The London Telefilmonic Orchestra making this song into the perfect song to stop thinking and start feeling. “Give Up The Ghost” Sounding like it was recorded in a forest complete with birds chirping in the background.

      A flawless acoustic kicks in with a subtle reverb giving a natural

      atmosphere so dense one would think you were sitting in a forest. The Final track “Separator” Yet again we have a funky drum blending in perfectly with a deep bass. Vocals making the best out of stereo headphones blending two choruses at once.

      With very light guitars like chimes echoing and echoing.

      This album makes up for its time (37:24) with amazing quality and experimentation that we would only come to expect from Radiohead.
