I'm here and I'm ecstatic that you'll be hear harassing people with regularity.

No one knows what the bulbs are for, from what I've gathered. Everyone thought it meant more releases. It could just be for the vinyl and CD releases of this album. It could be Thom fucking with our heads so that he can laugh funny. Who knows.

Do we have any pictures of Thom's mom? I'm assuming this is her.

Album Review: Radiohead – The King of Limbs � Consequence of Sound
Quote:
Have you ever seen David Lynch’s Twin Peaks? It didn’t last long – only two seasons, unfortunately – but it’s retained quite an immaculate cult following…and understandably so. There’s just something oddly jarring and startling inviting about the quaint mountain town that experiences incredibly abnormal instances. There’s the everyman Sheriff, the dopey Deputy, the country slang, the damn good coffee, the lush Pacific Northwest landscapes, and then there’s the death of the town princess by what may or may not be extraterrestrial or supernatural forces — if not both. It all looks normal at first sight, but behind every tree and within every mirror dwell incomprehensible beings, all with the agenda to distort reality. As the show progresses, the more natural and human elements that once acted as common ground start feeling rather loose and slippery. Characters change face, confusion runs rampant, bodies start piling up, and everything takes on this rather cryptic nature. Sound familiar?

Film critics love to throw around the word “Lynchian” to describe genre films that borrow a few of those elements. These pieces shift dramatically in tone, and rather abruptly so, too. There’s this dreamlike quality to them that baits its audience and it’s been programmed that way. There’s a specific reasoning for every image, every sound, and every action. Or, is there? That’s the game. Not to throw around labels too much, but Thom Yorke’s style tends to be very Lynchian.

Are you kidding me?

Pitchfork's founder was on local public radio earlier - says their review will be coming by the end of this week, and personally speaking, his favorites were Codex and Give Up the Ghost, but otherwise didn't give any clue as to what their review will be...

Guys, that's actually a really good review. Don't blame Consequence of Sound if they're writing above your sophomore reading level


edit:
 
and just so we're all clear - i'm being facetious

Yes, our reading level is the issue not the completely irrelevant and arbitrary imagery that takes up over a quarter of the review while adding very little to the understanding of the band or a good description of the album.

Actually, once he gets past the David Lynch bullshit I think it's pretty spot-on. His biggest issues are with Feral and Magpie (easily the two weakest tracks) and he also praises it in the right places, with the exception of seeming a little cool on Lotus Flower.
