4 Short but sweetkidandroid | 22/03/2011 | See all kidandroid's reviews (4)At eight tracks and thirty-seven minutes The King Of Limbs is not what you'd call a big, sprawling album, but the quality of the music here is up to the usual Radiohead standards, and the record's brevity makes for a smooth listen. Opening track "Bloom" is the band at its brilliant best and, with its wonderful use of brass, strings and rhythm, sounds as exciting and vital as ever. There's the lush instrumentation and beautiful vocals in "Little By Little", the dark and addictively atmospheric "Feral", the soul-crushing simplicity of "Give Up The Ghost"...to name just a few highlights. That a band this far into its career still sounds this fresh and invigorated on its eighth album is actually quite impressive and rare. A grower!
