    its terrible, really dull and lifeless and awful. ok, i'm not a radiohead fan but i did love "Kid A" and thought it would be something similar. no such luck. just yorke moaning on over some rather dull beeps and bleeps. there are way, way better electronica albums out there than this. its getting "respectful" reviews because its Yorke but it just doesnt work at all.

    On first impressions it was really grim. will give it some more spins when i'm feeling sufficiently depressed.

    I really like it, I like a lot. Not for everyone, but I'm a fan of minimal techno and Yorke straddles this

    i'm a fan of minimal techno too and this has nothing in common with that! lets get real here - its a dog of an album and it needs to be put down

    Pilchard, take your head from your ass. I like the album, i think it compares to some of the minimal stuff out there. I didn't say it was minimal but similar.

    Im getting in to it now despite some reservations at the start but the first track (The Eraser) is one of the best songs Ive heard in a long while.

    There are two good track on it: And It Rained All Night and Harrowdown Hill, everything else is total pap. The pap just sounds like a really s**te Third Eye Foundation demo or something.

    Actually, I think the record would be better with no vocals. Yorke's voice is annoying when he lo-fis it.

    dude, u said it "straddled" minimal techno so if u want to have a punch-up bout semantics, lets trade shots. una is right - its yer man's whiney voice that brings the album down (down, deeper and down)

    I've changed my mind. I think it's pretty decent.

    there was a great (well, scathing) review of this on Pet Sounds last night - i think yorke was refered to as a moany hole at one stage. vicious reviews can sometimes be great fun

    A good bad review of a sh*t album or movie can be very entertaining!

    you should read the Da Vinci code review in the New Yorker. Absolute genius.

    It was quite funny but the day I take musical direction from Stuart Clarke is the day I stick a knitting needle in my ear because I'll no longer want to be able to hear. Poor Tom Dunne won't let the whole "Kid A is rubbish" thing go. Perhaps it's time to admit that he's lost that argument. I'm a little bemused by the universal praise American V has been getting too. Not as good as the previous ones but I suppose it's hard to view it outside the context of Johnny's death so for that reason ... Personally I thought American IV was the perfect epitaph to his career.
