The King Of Limbs: a review and a preview. File under: Satire

The release of Radiohead’s ‘The King Of Limbs’ is only two days away, but Vice Magazine has a track-by-track review online already. Plus, Radiohead have fans over at Heckler Spray… and Kelly Clarkson is doing a Radiohead. Sort of.

After reading the review by Vice, we’re really looking forward to the track ‘Tailback On The Lunar Express’. Here’s Vice’s final verdict:

Another classic: one that marries the taut electronica of Pablo Honey with the anthemic Britpop belters of Kid A and the complex prog of The Bends. A radical reinvention that fuses timeless langour with post-modern darkness over towering ziggurat electronica. It is a quantum leap; in the sense that it transplants you inside the body of a West Virginia stripper in 1967 who has to solve her brother’s murder with the help of a computer called Ziggy. Innovative use of physical product… saving record industry… blah… reluctant stars… contrarians… pioneers… Godrich, their fifth Beatle… still ahead of the curve… blah shellfish… Glastonbury… picnic… shoes… bus… car crashes… Global warning… more than just an album… etc.

Read the full track-by-track review.

The true fans can be found over at Heckler Spray. They haven’t heard the album yet, but already made their minds up:

As ever, we can imagine that songs will be based around Thom Yorke’s insultingly obvious observations about the world, channelling a feeling of disenfranchisement after having watched Falling Down with Michael Douglas for the thousandth time. Filled with a feeling of sticking it to the man, Thom could have written a song in character, as a pre-packaged sandwich from Asda, filled with self-loathing and worry about those caught in the rat-race… a rat-race Thom Yorke hasn’t ever been part of… but he’s seen Falling Down, so that’s okay.

Only a day after Radiohead announced their new album, Kelly Clarkson did same. On Facebook the American Idol winner said she’s close to finishing her album. Influences? Yup, Radiohead and Tina Turner!

  • The tracklist mentioned before (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J-yEh7JPXJg) IS the actual tracklist. The owners name is thekingoflimbs, the web page of the channel is the official page kingoflimbs.com. The tracklist and one song came on the same date (too fast to be a prank) plus all the clips have layers, inside sounds and all this things only obtainable in a studio version.
    Listen carefully to the present tense clip, its got a backfilling sound that could only be part of the studio sound, not a live performance.
    We have had the tracklist in front of our noses all this time

    GOOD ANALYSIS.

  • @kidsk

    Not sure whether the video you link to shows that this is a hoax, or just that Radiohead have a sense of humor. Call me crazy, but I don’t find the latter option to be much of a stretch :)

  • waste of my time

  • Great Post!! Thank you very much!

  • Where the hell do these media company’s get there 100 year old photo’s of Thom from? I’m sick to death of seeing ok computer era photos – get some in rainbows ones!

    Btw I kinda hope that tracklisting is legit because then it will be a mostly new songs rather than ones we have heard.
