    Lotus Flower and Separator are the most uplifting Radiohead songs to me, not sure why.

    It takes some time before I actually listen to this album properly. And it's not bad but kind of underwhelming to be a Radiohead record. The second half is certainly better. More melodic than the first with its loops and samples. Lotus Flower is certainly the highlight of the album. Codex and Separator being my favorites.

    What Radiohead do brilliantly with any album is the atmosphere. This album is no different.

    @Kavigne I don't see how you could compare the two. They're completely different albums.

    They went and ran with their talk talk aping for most of an album after reckoner it seems. Good choice to emulate, though.

    This is definitely a grower. It reminds me of a couple of my favorite albums (Levitate by The Fall and Before and After Science by Brian Eno) in that it sounds like the songs were at one point fully arranged but somewhere along the way they were stripped down to their essence and made into skeletal, rhythmic groovers. Good stuff that sounds more of a piece with Kid A and Amnesiac than it does Hail to the Thief and In Rainbows.

    Let's laugh at those, who say "Hail To The Thief" is better than this superb album!

    Bloom, Lotus Flower and Separator are completely beautiful.
