PopMatters

"Burn the Witch" itself is quintessentially Radiohead, suffused, from the first burst of pizzicato string-twitches to the final chorus-swirl of orchestration and anxiety, with the band's ethereal crypto-rock aesthetic.

This late into their career and Radiohead continue to show major progression in their sound with what's probably the biggest single of 2016. The urgency of the strings and the minimalistic percussion brilliantly build suspense and greatly intensify the chorus which only feels like classic Radiohead with Thom's nasal wailing on the line "WE KNOW WHERE YOU LIVE." LP9's looking to be one of the band's boldest efforts and I can't wait any longer.

Fuck yeah! new Radiohead, and it's actually really good, hyped for the album, hope it's better than King of Limbs.
