4 stars Hail the The 8or The Gloaming). At first it might sound like a combination of Amnesiac's mild electronic experimental jazz and The Bends"s catchy pop hooks, but once you get past that you'll see that Hail to The Thief is unlike any previous Radiohead album in a good way. The music is simple in it's own right but the song structures are very experimental. Everything from "2+2=5",s energetic chorus to "Sit Down.Stand Up.",s trance rock build- up to the angst-ridden anti-bush anthem "I Will" to the barked rapping of Thom Yorke on "A Wolf At The Door", Hail to Thief is a brand new sound for Radiohead and another step in their evolution. I can't ing wait for the next album if there is one. While this is album is great, it's not quite a classic as Ok Computer and Kid A were but it's still a must-have for any fan of prog, rock, or techno.
