Now playing:



Was a bit underwhelmed by this one at first but upon further listening I think its very nice.
Quite a mellow album by Radiohead standards - I am looking forward to the new one!.

Still in the getting to know it stage with this album - think it has promise.
Don't know if anyone else is the same but it takes me a few listens to really get the most out of anything new.
A very polished album for sure - don't think it deviates from the tried and true B & S formula much.
Think its hard to find a bad B & S album - I cant think of one.
It would be nice if the group tried something different I guess - maybe part of their charm is that they never change (they have just become a bit slicker with the passing of time).

Really like "Play For Today" and "Enter Sylvia Plath" from that one.
