Radiohead: The King of Limbs, Continued

Carry on.

Let's see how far we can get without comparing Thom to Bono.

I don't understand the title. Is it an inside joke from the click?

BTW - if I annoy you greatly, it's probably a good time to take a break from the board. I am officially done with all of my cases in Michigan and don't move until the end of March. I'm going to be here quite a bit.

I'm not sure whether you're joking or not.

Here's another review, by the way. It's rather short, but seems to reflect what quite a few here were thinking.

Thom's dance was choreographed:

Nothing else to add really, carry on.

Ok, now I'm thinking that Pitchfork will gauge the less-than-ecstatic reaction on the internet, and try to appear smarter by overrating it even more.

So maybe I should change my guess to 9.4

Also, this thread title is The King Of Limp.

I'm guessing Pitchfork will give it a score in the 8.5-9.0 range. High enough to give it "Best New Music", but not so high that it looks like they're overrating it.

 
Eh, who am I kidding, they'll give it a perfect 10 because Radiohead.

I believe Pitchfork Law dictates any new Radiohead release gets a minimum 9.0.

This one ranks pretty low in my book.

Bloom probably the weakest opener in a long while.

I love Little by Little, Codex, Give Up the Ghost.

I like MMM.

The rest I probably won't go listening to anytime soon.

Some of the sound "gimmicks" are getting tiresome.

Someone posted a pic in the last thread of tree with three bulbs hanging from it with the first of those bulbs being lit up. I believe they said it was someone officially released by RH. Does anyone one know what that was about?
