About this deal

I think (I hope) most Radiohead fans like to play albums from beginning to end in one - touted as a companion piece to OK Computer this album has highs and lows but throughout maintains the bands emotional and eclectic sound whilst immersing the listener in a deep well of transcendental alt. In the ethereal Sail To The Moon he dreams of a future where a president might "know right from wrong"; where a saviour might "build an ark and sail us to the moon. There are so many delicious melodies here, so much that's both soothing and twisted and catchy, so much to sing along with, even if our prognosis is grim. I know there's some confusion as to which release sounds the best, who pressed what when, etc, but if you can get your hands on this 2021 re-issue, you're on the true path. i love radiohead and i want the better copy so to me it was worth the extra cost and time tracking them down.

Yorke's voice has never been better and the stark mechanisms of Kid A and Amnesiac have come to some kind of accommodation with melody. Radiohead’s ‘everything but the kitchen sink’ album, Hail to the Thief saw the obstinate Oxonians leaving behind a fair bit of the bleakness of the Kid A and Amnesiac period in favour of a lighter, rockier style. Additionally make sure your User-Agent is not empty and is something unique and descriptive and try again. Cada disco viene en una funda con el arte de Stanley Donwood lo cual hace que la parte gráfica se pueda disfrutar más. To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average.This album is a biting commentary on modern times, its condemnation of right wing politics and the I'm-Alright-Jack attitude of society at large remain hugely relevant. Radohead progress further on from 2000's Kid A and 2001's Amnesiac (which were hardly commercial flops- both hitting the top echelons in the US charts!

Hail to the Thief is one of the highlights of the year thus far, adventerous songs that engage with a world from a controlled distance.

Radiohead's definition of pop has evolved from guitar-driven tracks with a Beatles influence to textured, willfully complex songs dripping with Pink Floyd-like ambition.

Radiohead's Hail to the Thief bridges the gulf between OK Computer 's epic progressive rock and Kid A 's skittering electronic theatrics, borrowing equally from each. begins slowly, like the end part of Paranoid Android, before veering off into manic Fugazi-sounding territory where Yorke repeats the anti-matra "YOU HAVE NOT BEEN PAYING ATTENTION!

Certain items can take longer to source than the estimated week, particularly during busy trading periods and may take longer to arrive at our warehouse. Escaping this sorry world in dreamland, a vague Beckettian indicnation surfaces- "We don't want the loonies taking over" as sublime backing vocals and fractally-fractured guitars bend and chime- Where I End and You Begin is another of the more instant songs- something uncertain between and lost, the vague theme of the album? I have been collecting these 2 CD DVDs from Pablo Honey up to Hail to the Thief and yet more beautiful music from Yorke and the gang has been produced, my only dissapointment was in the DVD which was a little lacking in body, especially when you compare it with The Bends, the bonus material almost double the content of the main disc, with tons live vids and alternate takes on the DVD, yet hail to the thief only had about 15 mins of content. Confirming Thom Yorke in the role of a modern seer and soothsayer, it doesn't flinch from whispering uncomfortable secrets about our society's slow slide into drugged sleep. Imagine a more subtle I Might Be Wrong; would make a good single along with Sail to the Moon, Where I End.Volume 2 of Madness B-Sides "I Do Like To B-Side The A-Side", across 11 hit singles from "Driving In My Car" to "(Waiting For) The Ghost. I have some very good LP pressings in my collection, and this is one of the best, if not THE best sounding of them all. This song tells you everything you need to know about the world today, just in an otherworldy way- deja vu. Hail To The Thief' is immersed in dread and paranoia, albeit a more visceral, emboldened dread and paranoia. And in I Will, Everyman calmly turns the tables on those who'd deny him a future: "I won't let this happen to my children, meet the real world coming out of my shell .
