4 stars Well, it is quiet nice to be an outsider.

I also have been the kind of follower who finds any kind of peep hole to appreciate those musicians I considered my favorites.

Fortunately, for an impartial review of this album (or band, whatever comes your way), I have never been a RADIOHEAD cult follower less a fan. To be honest their highly praised works (by their followers , never found a way to my personal tastes. Considering them, like Bowie by the way, vampires of other people musical languages, blending n' mixing it all, in honor of "sampling", and coming up with this liquid formula and call it Radiohead, whose band name, will reinforce my point of view.

Anyway it is quiet nice to be an outsider, you kind of see the "kingdom" without the sand castles. The naked King for those acquainted with the fairy tale.

Probably my favorite Radiohead album "In Rainbows", 2007, has a maturity and unpretentiousness that clears its way by not forcing itself to be "artificially" groundbreaking at all costs, less interfere with the course of their naturally aquired sound, which is quiet "folkish-Rock" (rhythm acoustic guitar based in other words), as their later albums will consolidate.

A purified musical language, meaning maturity and simplification, recorded with their always top of the tops sound engineering, it adds up easily to ****4 Crossover/Prog, PA stars.
