When it comes to Radiohead I find myself to be quite biased. When I found out their new album was going to be released within days I literally jumped up and down with excitement.

My initial reaction is I felt they have come home. Home to the music of Kid A, but a grown up version. There is an electro beat bumping drive that is at the forefront in most of the songs that just makes me want to dance. Bloom, Lotus Flower, Codex, Separator are the stand out tracks on this 8 track long album… I have to question the length of the album for a moment, they have never released an album this short. I am about 95% certain that the Newspaper Album will have quite a few more tracks on it which means there is more new music to come as well as a tour in the works. It is going to be a good year.

On their website, Dead Air Space they thank us for waiting… I want to thank Radiohead. Thank them for the beauty they bring me everyday, thank them for helping me to feel it “all”. Thank them for the music they continue to bring us year after year.

    Well said.

    Although I don’t have a problem with the length of the record nor am I expecting any extras. I think we should appreciate what we’ve got and not berate the band for anything.

    Great album!

    Just for the record I in no way feel that this 8 track album is not enough. It is amazing. Even if no other tracks are on the Newspaper Album I would not be disappointed by any means.

    Hi Rachel, I’m not nearly as devoted a Radiohead fan as you are but I really like this album a lot, can’t stop playing it, and am completely in awe of how they are so creative and continue to put out such quality. It’s one I am very glad to have.
