2 stars IMO, the best thing about this album is that it can be free if you decide so. And there are a lot of reasons not to spend a lot of money for this effort.

At this time of their career, it seems that "Radiohead" didn't have much to say nor prove. No real break through here. Just another "Radiohead" album. Of course, the ambient and boring (but that's only my opinion) atmosphere from "Kid A" and its clone "Amnesiac" are almost gone, but very few songs shine here.

On the rhythm end, I guess that "Bodysnatchers" is going to please any fan. On the mellowish end, "Nude" is probably what I can stand best from this work. But usually, I preferred their up-beat songs. So, to have this feeling is no good. FYI, I consider "Pablo Honey" as their second best album.

It sounds as if the band is also willing to alternate between upbeat with the excellent "Weird Fishes Arpeggi" and slow paced "All I Need" (rather boring to be honest).

And this is the feeling that prevails during most of this album. Repetitive, emotionless and dull. Like "House Of Cards", but there are more in the style (like Videotape which is extremely poor. I'm looking hard to find any kind of novelty, any trace of enthusiasm, any grand moment. But I can't find any of these. Or so little.

Two stars for this cheap album.
