The King of Limbs is a reference to an oak tree in Wiltshire, England's Savernake Forest. Thought to be more than 1,000 years old, the ancient tree and Savernake Forest are located close to Tottenham House, where Radiohead recorded part of In Rainbows.

None of that stops me from thinking of King of Birds.

Speaking of which, REM have a lot of "King Of" titled songs.

And now we've got a chance for both the best and worst albums of the year to have four word titles beginning with "The King."

Impy was not a fan of The Decemberists' new album, The King Is Zed.



Zed's dead, baby. Zed's dead.

I think The Decemberists album is great, so he must be expecting nothing from Radiohead.

I don't have a well formed opinion on the Decemberists' album because I've only listened to it once.

What? You can't form true impressions on an album after only one listen? I'm glad I was sitting down when I read that. Shocking stuff, Peeferoni. You're a different breed.

Excuse me if I'm an idiot for a moment, but what the hell does this actually have to do with the newspaper? Is it just that it's releasing on the weekend (Sunday morning in the UK, I assume)?

Your guess is as good as anyone else's, Scumby. I'm assuming it has everything to do with the packaging of the LP.

Lance is already drafting some variation of a "newspaper album" joke which includes a budgie and a birdcage.
