entirely unmemorable on first listen except "runwayaway"

I've been having a very enjoyable first listen this morning. Twist, Not the News, Impossible Knots all sounding great.

I'm maybe problematically fascinated w/ Yorke's divorce coming just some months prior to his ex-wife's death. Can anyone hear this? I don't hear it. It's just more spooky apocalyptic tales. But I guess Moon Shaped was as much a love song than I could ask for from this band

Or, guy. Sorry, everyone else.

I skimmed the Radiohead subbredit thread and someone was claiming to hear their breakup in his last solo album, and this new one is her eulogy. I closed the tab.

I think the designer forgot the final “L”? To go with the Def Leppard cover I mean?

So far the back half of the record sounds more distinctive. The Axe, the dub bassline on the second to last track, and the last track is great.

I loved the sound of Tomorrow's Modern Boxes, and generally like it when there's more Thom piano and guitar mixed in. This is really heavy on the modular, which for some reason I assume is more Nigel's sound? Sounds a lot more like the Atoms for Peace record than anything else.

it's like a deeply broken techno record with thom singing over it. think it's p easily and immediately his best since the eraser

I have just enjoyed the film (on Netflix )especially as it's about 15 minutes long which is as much as I can take of Yorke's voice. Also as it features some pretty good lighting in what appears to be a big concrete cave but which turns out to be (I think) a place called Carrières de Lumières in the south of France, which looks incredible.

Music video is great which isn’t really surprising considering the people involved.

Dawn Chorus synths are gorgeous as hell and they sound as played by a human not a machine (actually I think most of this album achieved this effect rather well) but I don’t care for the spoken voice much.
Not the news and Impossible Knots sound really nice on a good pair of headphones.

Overall I think this might be his best solo album and one of Nigel’s best productions with Thom. Their work together usually sounds too sterile and lifeless for my taste. There’s an Atoms for Peace full concert on youtube which sounds miles better than the album versions, Flea is a highlight and I wish we got those sounds on the actual album.

Manbun Yorke has a Momus vibe to him

Twist is really and abundantly a Boards of Canada song

that employs its last two transcendental minutes to addendum a "no i'm not"
