BernhardGJul 28, 2006I've never been a fan of Radiohead, so I wouldn't be able to compare them with Yorke's solo effort. But this album has been a revelation, the dark, dancy mood - as if Malcolm Middleton should combine efforts with Morrissey - makes this a personal favorite this summer. The slight Sigur Ros-like touch to several of the songs just makes the melancholy even more intimate and real. I usually agree a 100% with the Pitchfork reviewer, but this time they've either put the wrong guy on the case or given him a different album to review. This is a classic. Mark my words, people will still refer to this album a decade from now.… Expand
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.
RHJul 10, 2006This is the album that fanatics of Kid A, like myself, have been waiting for. Your nervous system will instantly connect with these "pitter patter" electronic tracks, and there's no nonsense like the last two Radiohead albums. Definitely a nice surprise, and one of my favorites of 2006.… Expand
caroJul 18, 2006This is a very haunting album from the genius behind Radiohead. Don't forget that Thom isn't backed by the other guys (i.e. Johnny Greenwood & co.) so this is just from Thom's mind. I was very pleasantly surprised by this album. Just give it a few listens, it really isn't like anything else out there.… Expand
AndyJul 13, 2006Its pretty good... More or less... I wouldn't call it groudbreaking because there isn't anything new here, but for once I can actually understand most of the lyrics without a sheet. It works, if you like the sounds. Check out a single or two before buying... Just don't expect Radiohead… Expand
