Review by admireArt
3 stars Thom Yorke's 2014, third "solo" release Tomorrow's Modern Boxes plays again his abstract concept of electronic music, which covers a fair amount of contemporary stylings: Dub-Step, Electronica, Trance, Psych-Trance Drum And Bass, Techno & etc.

It will turn out to be an oddity that this kind of electronic styles will appeal to the average prog enthusiast who hardly considers this to be prog music.

I will agree on this by the cold fact of how oblivious the prog community is of their own Progressive-Electronic genre. Anyway, this project is not the best defense for this outside of prog electronic music.

Music wise it starts with the most memorable song of the album and from there everything becomes a super-extended remix of ambiental dub-step passages alongside Yorke's eerie and boyish manner of singing. Some splendid highlights here and there but composition wise I have heard a thousand guys doing this and Thom Yorke's proposals are quiet lame in comparisson.

Although the impeccable sound-engineering, (which in this kind of music it is the usual deal), the un-melodious abstractions as such sound completely replaceable, I mean you could take away or remove any track but the first, and it will be the same.

Could appeal to prog Electronic people or Post-Math followers or Radiohead's heads
