3 stars Well, this album starts good, with their best electronic track »Pact like Sardines...« but all other electronic tracks are so simple and not progressive at all. Singer's voice made me once again annoying. It is just too much monotone. He creates good voice effects in Pyramid Song, but the rest of singing is not my favourite. It is obvious that this is not album that made Radiohead famous at all. Too many electronic experiments put excellent sounding Radiohead's guitarist, and their wish to make something different should have been connected to more complex music. This is not complex work at all, and one can get a feeling of this as some EP, or hard fans-only release. Obviously, they did not care if some tracks will have any meaning, like »Pulkpull Revolving«. Maybe that this album together with album Kid A, with some tracks trown away would be radiohead masterpiece, and classical work of modern rock. They were just too afraid to make guitar-filled album because of its potential commercial succes, and turned to some simpler electronic musical toys. All in all, album is not quite bad, interesting to hear it, but not essential at all.
