About this deal

I think (I hope) most Radiohead fans like to play albums from beginning to end in one - touted as a companion piece to OK Computer this album has highs and lows but throughout maintains the bands emotional and eclectic sound whilst immersing the listener in a deep well of transcendental alt. The tinkling piano behind the cold sonic surface of "Backdrifts" and the brief, swooping melody in the middle of "Sail to the Moon" are islands in a sea of confusion. I know a few people who didn't get on with this album initially, but after hearing it on LP have got in to it and now love it!

In the ethereal Sail To The Moon he dreams of a future where a president might "know right from wrong"; where a saviour might "build an ark and sail us to the moon.Coldplay release their ninth studio album Music Of The Spheres which features 12 new tracks including recent no. I know there's some confusion as to which release sounds the best, who pressed what when, etc, but if you can get your hands on this 2021 re-issue, you're on the true path.

After transitioning to a more electronic style on their albums 'Kid A' (2000) and 'Amnesiac' (2001), which were recorded through protracted studio experimentation, Radiohead sought to work more spontaneously, combining electronic and rock music. Radiohead's Hail to the Thief bridges the gulf between OK Computer 's epic progressive rock and Kid A 's skittering electronic theatrics, borrowing equally from each. Hail To The Thief’ is immersed in dread and paranoia, albeit a more visceral, emboldened dread and paranoia. The technical storage or access is strictly necessary for the legitimate purpose of enabling the use of a specific service explicitly requested by the subscriber or user, or for the sole purpose of carrying out the transmission of a communication over an electronic communications network.Hail to the Thief is pretty much packed with forward thinking songs (though Myxomatosis sounds a bit duff- despite having lyrics found like Knives Out on the KidA-booklet)- the album rails at the 21st century waking nightmare.
