Radiohead - The King of Limbs
This is definitely an album that requires multiple listens, much like “Amnesiac” and “Kid A”. But when I listen to other Radiohead albums, I feel like I have been on a substantial journey. I don’t get that feeling after listening to “The King of Limbs”. It’s not just because the album is only 8 songs and clocks in around 37 minutes. I think it’s also because the album pretty much hovers around one energy level. I really wish there was at least one high energy tune. A chill song like “Codex” would have had a lot more impact if it followed an energetic song. My favorite tracks are “Morning Mr. Magpie”, “Lotus Flower”, and “Give Up The Ghost”. I love the muted guitar parts in “Morning Mr. Magpie”. “Lotus Flower” is groovy and melodic. The vocal loop in “Give Up The Ghost” is really cool…This album isn’t going to rise to the top of my list, but it’s enjoyable.
