UrbPerhaps an EP would have better-suited Yorke's solo aspirations. [Jul/Aug 2006, p.115]
KGJul 10, 2006This is a masterful album filled with uniqueness and creativity beyond almost anything else I've heard before. Beautifully constructed This is a masterful album filled with uniqueness and creativity beyond almost anything else I've heard before. Beautifully constructed music with many layers that blend well together. But as with Radiohead's music, Thom's voice is that final bit of glue that pulls it all together. Definitely best heard with good headphones (not iPod ear buds!)… Expand
DavidGJul 31, 2006Such a refreshing album to listen to, its not trying to prove anything to anybody, if you like this album it really does send you to a nice place...
PHNov 7, 2007The album is amazing, the texture manages to be both lush and sparse at the same time, leading to a unique aural experience. A complete triumph.

It's the type of music I could listen to while watching people shopping at Target, selecting the perfect spatula, out of dozens of choices, to match their "kitchen colors". It's been on repeat for some time now. Lyrics are tasty little treats: "buy a ticket and get on the train" "no more talk about the old days, it's time for something great" "you will be disposed with, when you become inconvenient" "It's all boiling over" I often get the sense this is pre-World War 3 music at its best. My only problem with The Eraser is that I want it to go on and on. Just when Cymbal Rush gets going nicely, it ends. Oh well, it was sweet while it lasted.… Expand
