Radiohead has dehumanized me. That has always been their ultimate motivation, hasn't it?

Right, and I'm saying that Lotus Flower isn't. I find the music pretty intense, actually.

i agree that this album is going to age very well. i also agree that Lotus Flower is as "big" (if there's such a thing with Radiohead's catalog) the other songs mentioned above.

It does get better with every listen. But I agree with some that it lacks that one, big song. Codex and Separator are closest to this IMO. I would just wish if both of these songs had a more majestic build-up to them. If anyone can build up a song, it's Radiohead. Most of my favourite songs of theirs are structured like that (Climbing Up the Walls, You and Whose Army?, Fake Plastic Trees, How To Disappear Completely...).

I'm thinking this gets forgotten when list-making time comes around at the end of the year. It's only been out for a week and I'm already starting to forget about it . . .

It makes me laugh that the UK still gives any sort of remote shit as to what those jokes have to say. Then again, they were the country to continue to pretend Oasis were good for more than a decade past their two album period of decency, so I guess I shouldn't be too surprised. I used to think the UK had good taste in music, that seems like a loooong time ago.

I think that you are right about this - not necessarily about Pitchfork, but about the critical consensus on general. Reviews coming out in recent days are already more positive than the initial (knee-jerk) reviews, and I suspect that this album is going to age exceedingly well. This and Destroyer's album are going to fare well on the end-of-year lists, whereas something like Zonoscope or Dye It Blonde, which is strong but reveals most of its charms upon first listen, will end up in the middling section.

There was a time when all I listened to was British Music, to the point that if someone asked me what I listened to, I'd even respond "mostly British bands".
I realized a couple years ago that it no longer the case.
That being said, I still hate when people ask me that question. How are you supposed to answer without sounding like a total a-hole? Can't name bands to most of the people who ask, I refuse to use the term 'indie', can't say alternative because it sounds like you listen to new rock stations, cant say rock because you sound like a huge skid...

Ha, this applies to me word for word back when I was in college and a few years after. Sure doesn't now though.

I haven't listened to this album in about a week. Should probably change that.
