Artist : Thom Yorke
Genre : Electronic / Pop / Rock
Date of Released : 2014
Thom Yorke delivers again an exciting album; and this is a fact. The overall feel of the album is quite trippy and hypnotic yet the songs are not boring. The use of electronic elements made the whole album worth listening to and you will not force your ears and mind to make you appreciate the songs in this record. Yorke composed the song and fused with musical backgrounds that are not heady for the brain. As a result, you have a relaxing record, in you fact you can play this album if you want to go to sleep.
Another interesting aspect of this album is that it never sounded like Radiohead considering that he is one of the brains behind this band. In addition, the lyrics are not trite and tried but not too profound that you need time to understand what the song is all about. It is also interesting to note that the songs were arranged in a manner that one is does not break the mood the preceding song intended to do so.
As a whole, Thom Yorke teaches other solo artists how to fuse rock and electronic without sounding too pop. I rate this record 3.5 stars out of 5 stars.
1 star = Ignore it
2 stars= risk it
3 stars = borrow or buy it
4 stars = buy it and keep it
5 = buy, keep, and treasure it
