Ahh ok. See, I still listen to mostly CDs, and that doesn’t come out until late July. Which is why I thought it leaked.

This is the first time Yorke's solo material has come close to the transcendence he long ago discovered with his bandmates in Radiohead. I especially love how organic instruments are used in this record - sparingly, but with massive impact nearly every time. Everything here just seems far more thought out, cohesive and hard-hitting. Twist and Dawn Chorus will likely be the best one-two punch of the year.

Well, in your defense, the marketing campaign for it was cutting edge, batshit and also terrible.

In the sense that it was nonexistent or something?

Oh, it was very existent.



"Mysterious posters advertising something called “Anima Technologies” have been popping in London trains, The Dallas Observer, and phone booths in Milan. All of them include a phone number that will supposedly help you remember your lost dreams with something called a “dream camera.”



These posters are, in fact, advertisements for Thom Yorke’s new solo album. If you call the number, a voice says, “You are hereby advised that due to serious and flagrant unlawful activities, Anima Technologies has been ordered by the authorities to cease and desist from undertaking its advertised business and further, from taking any telephone calls in relation to the aforesaid business.” And after a tone, part of Yorke’s unreleased solo track “Not The News,” which he debuted live recently, plays.



There’s also a website for Anima Technologies. If you visit it, a statement claims that the site has also been “seized by the Authorities” to prevent the company’s “serious and flagrantly unlawful activities.”'

i still have my copy of The Universal Sigh, released in conjunction with TKoL at record stores, so it's pretty classic "Tom has a laff" bantz

'it's not a huge surprise that they feel of a kin with 2011's perennially underrated, brilliant The King of Limbs.' (2). Nice.



Yeah I'm liking this a fair bit so far, need to let it marinate a little but the early signs are positive. I actually really enjoyed 'Eraser' but his other solo stuff has left me cold.

yo, this slams.



Marketing was alright fun, much unlike the cringe that Arcade Fire did with their latest release.

This was pretty great. A little sleepy at parts but even in those moments there were interesting things going on.
