Radiohead has returned with the apparently very good A Moon Shaped Pool. I have yet to buy this album but I'm certainly looking forward to hearing it (though I did listen to one song, Burn The Witch, and it was decent). It took me a good while to get into Radiohead, and though I wouldn't call myself a big fan of them, it's nice to get a new album from them at last. Reviews are very strong right now so I'm expecting a really enjoyable record. I love the album cover and the rather elegant name.

I have friends who love Radiohead and are raving over this. I've not managed to get into Radiohead properly but I feel like I ought to. I've got OK Computer which I think is pretty good good but also suffers in my mind by comparison with the contemporaneous Porcupine Tree releases; I've read that Steven Wilson was influenced by Radiohead (The Bends gets a mention on Stupid Dream, and I can certainly hear similarities to OK Computer in certain songs) but I will always prefer PT. Still, I've given A Moon Shaped Pool a stream once through and it sounded pretty good so I'm willing to give it a try.

It looks like the physical release isn't happening until mid-June which is a bit annoying.

Was it you or was it me? Or was it he or she?

NB: despite what my name may suggest, I was not born in 1972 tongue

Just listened to the album tonight. It was... okay. Decent. Definitely need to listen to the album two, three, maybe even four more times until I can form a full opinion of it, though.
