I'm bored by it. I just think I'm bored by Radiohead in general, they have a sound that's kinda noticeable/distinctive, but I'm not into it.

Thom Yorke looks like a cock (rooster). He tries to be a funny spastic but he just looks like a grizzled cock.

I've only heard two songs, little by little, and some other song where he's dancing like a dumbass, looking like A Clockwork Borange.

I didnt like the second one, but I actually really really liked "Little by Little".

The production is at least way better than In Rainbows.

- Thom is hot, especially when dancing.
- 'Little by little' is one of the best, but it's hard to say, most tracks are really good.
- It was supposed to be tomorrow, but you know, it came out today. I bought the download on the website, and am waiting for my record to arrive.

Wow, this is pretty boring so far. I mean -- what can I say? It's Radiohead. It sounds like them. This souns like stuff they could have recorded in their sleep. It's not "BAD", just uninspired.

And, perhaps, even worse, uninspiring.

I read somewhere it's taken from Inception (but I don't know if that's true).

EDIT: not true apparently (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_King_of_Limbs)

it's shit. shit shit shit shit shit shit shit.

and that comes from a guy who, 13 years ago listened to nothing else than this band and at that time was seriously ready to punch anyone bad-mouthing them.

but this, this is plain shit.

I'm a big radiohead fan too but I'm not that impressed after my first listen. But sometimes it needs to grow on me. i'll listen to it again tomorrow.

on first listen, this isn't bad (aside from "feral" which really is bad), just very uneventful. "lotus flower" and "codex" are the standouts for me, but neither strike me as anything more than "nice." i guess "little by little" is pretty good too.

i wanna say it's a grower, but i just don't hear any redeeming ideas for it to warrant that tag. i'll listen to it a few more times just to make sure, though.

Well, I like it enough. Although this band has always striked me in a very personal way and the fact that "The King of Limbs" gives a not so impressive first impression, it shows the Radiohead side I prefer and a very pleasant (and to me, strangely "bright" for the band in question) mood, so it might become a grower... Even though I agree it doesn't seems to be, by no means, that great when compared with the best Radiohead output.
