the king of limbs

Radiohead kind of sprung this album on us, so it’s unfair to say “it was worth the wait”, since the wait was only four or five days — but it’s pretty incredible so far. I love the OK Computer/Pablo Honey/The Bends era Radiohead, but my music taste has evolved over the years and a lot influencing that evolution has included Thom Yorke’s solo effort in The Eraser, and then Radiohead’s previous LP, In Rainbows. The King of Limbs leans more towards The Eraser and In Rainbows, and I’m digging it. I will post more impressions after a couple of listens.

Notable tracks after first listen: Lotus Flower and Codex.
