Great collection of songs, undeniably consistent, just shy of a perfect score.

It is safe to say this is one of the band's goofier outings, and it's what makes it so likable. The sound of their music fits the mood its trying to invoke.

A great album and overall a joy to listen to but the songs are very forgettable. After listening to this album I didn't feel as moved as when I listened to Kid A or In Rainbows. This is a great album but doesn't compare to some of Radiohead's other albums

Favorite Tracks: Sit Down. Stand Up, Where I End and You Begin, and A Wolf at the Door
