Did Chris Martin suggest the album title?

Also, these guys went to private boarding school; you'd think they'd know proper grammar.

I absolutely love what they did with Silent Spring. I feel that both Identikit and Ful Stop are big improvements over the 2012 live versions (love the new intro for Identikit). True Love Waits... not so much.

But there's tons of stuff going on so I'll wait a bit for further impressions.

If you ever wanted to know what would happen if Faust ARP and Reckoner were mashed together, have I got the album for you!

This album needs to see a doctor because it's sick.

I'm liking this song a lot. Jonny is all over this record, which is not surprising.

There's tons of atmosphere on this album. I think only Kid A qualifies as being this moody and cinematic in my book.

It's the only track here that really employs their electronic influences, but in a subtle Backdrifts sort of way, not like a full on Thom solo track. The jittery, ominous outro definitely reminds me of HTTT. It could be an absolute beast live.

True Love Waits sounds good, they did a great job of applying the album's overall aesthetic to it in order to make it fit.

The reviews are making me even more excited to listen to this. The power of Radiohead. #1 on the U.S. iTunes Store, dethroning Drake and Beyoncé.

I just miss the guitar on True Love Waits. Those hammer-ons. One of my favourite songs to play on the guitar.

The acoustic guitar remained on Desert Island Disk and The Numbers so I don't think it would be out of place.

On my second listen. The intro to Glass Eyes is indeed gorgeous.

My only disappointment is that the two singles were right at the beginning. I was hoping to hear them contextualized in an interesting way. But, honestly, Burn the Witch is a pretty powerful opener. Not sure what else I would slot there. Plus, Daydreaming and Decks Dark are a great duo.

It's funny how well the alphabetical track listing turned out.
