Radiohead King of Limbs first impressions

Radiohead..as an engineer I revere them as masters of loads of reverb on Herr Thom Yorke’s vocals, generous use of (yet not too much) delay and lashings of Space Echo again? And as a creative music maker and experimental music artist, I appreciate how they manage to keep their authentic rare sound but still be pop(ular).

And yet more space itself ie. separated yet so gracefully unified.

Another collab with Nigel Godrich?

Well on first headphone date, it’s another lush swirling stereo dervishing treat.

Sometimes would have liked a breather from the drum rhythm loops, but o so nice round warm bottom end as ever.

Nice to hear the electronic elements slipping back in too.

Lotus Flower and Give up the Ghost my favourites so far..
