The King Of Limbs - Radiohead's newie

Ok ... In.My.Hot.Little.Hands. ... well not exactly. I've unzipped the file and am now listening to the new Radiohead album - The King of Limbs.

Its too soon for me to write a review but on first listen, it pretty much picks up from where In Rainbows left off. There's no pay what you like gimmick this time round, but for £30 you get a bit of bang for your buck. In addition to receiving the album as a download, you can look forward to the following hardware delights (which they are tagging as the world's first newspaper album ... yah your fucking guess is as good as mine!!) when they are shipped in May:
  • Two clear 10" vinyl records in a purpose-built record sleeve.
  • A compact disc.
  • Many large sheets of newspaper artwork, 625 tiny pieces of artwork and a full-colour piece of oxo-degradable plastic to hold it all together
And one lucky owner of the digital version of The King Of Limbs, purchased from the website, will receive a signed 2 track 12" vinyl. (Fingers crossed!)

The "Single" released is Lotus Flower and the video shows a rather gaunt Thom Yorke ... wait for it ... Dancing!!!! I'm not sure how comfortable I am with this, but you can judge for yourself. Tell me what you think.
