Radiohead Free Stan

You never really grasp a Radiohead album the first time you hear  it, so I'm not in total shock that I'm not immediately bowled over by their eighth offering "King of Limbs".

The album it most resembles is "In Rainbows".

But without a track as strong as "The Reckoner".

And much, much. much, much shorter.

Let me listen to a couple of dozen times and I will report back.

Meanwhile I recommend  Track 6 "Codex" and Track 8 "Separator" - these two are likely  to be coming to an upscale coffee house near you real soon. They're both definitely well crafted and tonal - superior chillout music. Too early to tell yet if they're anything more important than that.
