4 stars 01. Airbag The atmosphere is claustrophobic. Indeed it is synonymous with Radiohead, but while the melody takes you by the heel and makes you get on attentive ears. A programming covers a little bit the drums of Phil Selway, and the bass line simple of Colin Greenwood is perfect, while the two guitar players of the band (Ed O'Brien and Johnny Greenwood) always build lines disconcerting. Aside from the melodic lines of that Thom Yorke is one of the most vocal of all the legal 90s, is the emotion at the tip of the tongue. 02. Paranoid Android I think it's one of the majors claustrophobic music i've know, insane it squeezes the chest, from beginning to end the feeling is almost indescribable, a line of strange guitar, vocals, breaks on all sides. The guitars always very sharp and full of 'pain'. Before doideira greater weight and a low line of very good, excellent! So here it is a beautiful coral of a Byzantine (laughter, because you refer to the church, but not sure if it is). 03. Subterranean Homesick Alien From a subtly absurd! The name referred me directly to the Underground Homesick Blues by Bob Dylan, but what we heard here is a melody to draw your breath. Those difficult people forget so soon. Remember! 04. Exit Music (For A Film) Melancholy? No! This is more than melancholy! If you have suicidal tendencies pass away (laughs), and if you don't take care it'll brings you down too. Only a voice and guitar and keyboards, macabre. 05. Let Down Strange combination! After a 'down' track what you hear on Let Down (the name fits) is a song almost-happy, almost-happy. What we have here are guitar lines that combine with each other strangely, and a base well built. It is always good to hear the bass lines of Colin very well built in music of the band. The end is full of smart 'noises' and melody. 06. Karma Police This here is the ultimate in anguish in music, starting with the original piano, through the voice of Thom that always emanate some kind of real suffering of those who feel that is really singing, not just words in a melody. For the first time a keyboard is really ugly ina a song, but build a divine melody. And in apocalyptic climax reach its end. 07. Fitter Happier This is the height of experimentalism. You've seen those computer programs for blind people that every thing you write is repeated by a robotic voice? So, is what it is. Only the background noise experience. Listen and doubt. 08. Electionnering Rock And Roll Noise! This is the beginning, a melody more 'common', which is not very common on the disc. Vocalizations fuck that the bottom of the music. Guitars everywhere. 09. Climbing Up The Walls The feeling of climbing the walls here is put it in more abstract. With almost electronic percussion, and vocal badly treated. Only the middle forward that music becomes more 'human', but the tone of the disc is computadorização that is a luxury. (laughter) 10. No Surprise God that thing beautiful! The beginning of the guitar imitating a box full of music the melody of lyricism and souvenirs. It is a challenge to listen without thoroughly stir the emotional vocals of Yorke is not even more powers. Sensacional, is well to the senses. 11. Lucky Down the front, severe, with accompanying guitar fingering sensitive. And is not that the guys are good in chorus? When refrões striking, with good melodies go. A rare thing in the bands that are more experimental. There's even some jazz means bids near the end. 12. The Tourist Many may find boring, I agree that we have time to hear the sound of the guys, it is not for everyone so I can say.

Radiohead, certainly not a band at all! Take your own conclusions and leave your comments.
