    Part of me wishes Thom would have a breakdown again... so we could get another Kid A...

    Not quite sure what I was expecting from Amok... but after two listens I'm finding it a little mediocre.

    My main problem is how subdued Yorke's vocals are on this, they seem to get lost in the sea of analogue synths and complex rhythms and never really burst out.

    I think this is going to be another King of Limbs in all honesty, which (in my opinion) had some good Radiohead songs but no great Radiohead songs, then they started playing the album live and the songs really exploded into something which were often a lot better than the studio versions (again, in my opinion).

    I can see the stuff on Amok sounding a lot more alive and full of energy when performed live.

    I'm liking it. I've never been keen on Thom Yorke's doodling style but it's grown on me quite a bit. I'll want to listen to The Eraser again next.

    Once an eagle taught me courage. And I will never forget that day

    Whilst I like TKoL, I agree: From the Basement versions are infinitely more wonderful. Live they're even better.

    I'm also a little underwhelmed by Amok, although my expectations were sky-high. I guess I can't really hear a band... The Eraser sounds more like a group of musicians to me, this sounds very much like just Thom and his laptop. That said, I've already listened to it about 20 times, and it's growing on me. The title track is fantastic, wish it was longer.

    I've listened to it a dozen times now and really like it.
    It's somewhere in between Eraser &TKOL


    8/10, Pretty neat!

    This, didn't really like TKOL but seeing them do those tracks live really boosted my appreciation of them.

    I'll never get my Orc looking the same again.

    @AdamAsunder
    It's a fold out , like a double, double gatefold sleeve. It has shiny foil embedded in it.
    The art style is similar to The Eraser,

    From the look of it, LE is a bit like The Eraser. A lrge fold out of 8 pages or something like it. Regular is a smaller fold out. 4 pages.

    I received shipping info. Should be waiting on my doorstep when I get home.

    The video to Ingenue is fantastic, even if it is just an expansion of the Lotus Flower video. My can that girl move!

    @Trafford

    Thanks for the intel. I really like the art style and the fact it's a continuation although I'm getting fed up with all these awkward cases. it's ironic that a lot of the artists I like keep releasing cardboard cases that open in weird and wonderful ways.

    Nothing beats The White Album so far in my collection for sheer arsery. CDs and leaflets go everywhere every time I get that one out.

    Standard edition for this methinks, I was tempted by the vinyl double pack but I haven't got round to buying a turntable yet.

    I watched that today. He's definitely into his impressionist dancing at the moment. The song instantly grabbed me though, he's getting better and better and folding his voice into the music. Can't wait to blaze up a dooby and listen to the whole album. Between this and Yeah Yeah Yeahs set to finally release a new album I'm very happy at the moment.

    Hope they release more of the Amok sessions.


    I see the Steve Reich/Radiohead project premiered last night in London.
    Versions of Everything in its Right Place & Jigsaw Falling into Place.
    It's on I player/Radio 3

    Thom removes The Eraser and Amok from Spotify. About time someone took a stand against Spotify who have gradually become worse than iTunes when it comes to paying back to the artists what they deserve.

    It's arguable he accelerated the devaluation of music with his pay-what-you-want scheme for In Rainbows. Be careful what you wish for and all that.

    A strange game. The only winning move is not to play.
