3 stars Comparing to OK Computer this record is a step backward to brit-rock but a definite progression towards Pablo Honey. Radiohead is always applying themselves to renew their styles and pushing further and further and further....

Wanting or not, this album pushed the limits of the band to the edges of a decent art rock. Everything is fitting into places; again. In their rock years, few could compete with the enormous intelligence radiating from those 5 guys. Yorke and the Greenwood brothers are aiming almost perfectly at every song. A nasty blend of fury and melancoly that makes your foot stomp but also forces respect because of the great writing.

Of course, this is not old fashioned progressive rock but why bashing a band that much? Some are missing a point here: this has as much 'progressive' potential than Styx, Supertramp or the late Rush years. So bashers, please back off.

I still remember reading in Rock n' Folk that Radiohead could be the new Pink Floyd. Actually, that could make a lot of sense. From Ok Computer and up, it's not entirely crazy.
