Album

It was self-released on 18 February 2011 as a download, followed by a physical release on 28 March through XL Recordings internationally and TBD Records in North America. Singer Thom Yorke described the album as an. Лента с персональными рекомендациями и музыкальными новинками, радио, подборки на любой вкус, удобное управление своей коллекцией. Released February 18, 2011. Bloom Lyrics. The eighth studio album from Radiohead has a misleading restraint: lush electronics, thickets of digitally tweaked percussion and cryptic lyrics, sung in a prayerlike daze. At 38 minutes, it sounds unfinished and quietly perverse, even more anti-rock than Kid A at first. Repeated immersion, though, reveals a seductive concision and insistent undertow: the space-alien-The Beach Boys effect of Bloom , the dark, muted-treble blues of the guitars in Little By Little the nimble charge of Separator. This was a record that grew all year in your room, and onstage. Admittedly, Im speculating wildly here, but hasnt that always been an easy thing to do with Radiohead The band is still important and were still destined to care because the music they make is still vital. Some will definitely say we need the image, we need the hype that made Radioheads every move monumental and every song an epic,. At eight tracks in just 37 minutes, its the bands shortest album the brevity is shocking, since its been more than three years since its last, 2007s excellent In Rainbows. Many tracks recall the obtuse beat science they cooked up on 2001s Amnesiac and 2003s Hail to the Thief. But even those records had a few driving, granular rockers. It was first released through the band's website on 18 February 2011 and physically on 28 March 2011 in the United Kingdom by Ticker Tape and XL Recordings and in the United States by TBD Records. The album was produced by. And that's not to say that it doesn't ripple with the dazzling sonics or scenery that have become the band's stock in trade, but just that, unlike so many of their milestones, there's no abiding sense of a band defying all expectations in order to establish new precedents

I have a sealed copy of this set which I purchased directly from WASTE when it first came out which I am looking to sell. Is there any way to tell if I have the GZ Media or the Record Industries pressing without opening the bag?

Grari
Great press. Slated as not a good album but while not their best is a great album. Side 2 is much easier to listen to but both sides are equally as good as each other. Once you have started with Radiohead, changes are you buy all albums as they are ALL worth having.
Dagdalas
Yes man, I agree, they are addictive..... my only denial is their very first, it sounds premature and like teen bs, even "Creep" is a theft from a French movie ost......
Stonewing
It's the end of 2019 and to my mind this is possibly the weakest album of theirs to date. That is not to say it is bad, it just fails to mesmerise, baffle, capture or otherwise affect my emotions like the other recordings can in greater or lesser measure. Nothing here is in any way substandard, it just seems a little short on inspiration even if it is well executed. Maybe one day it will all click into place.
DireRaven
Excellent pressing. It's a joy to listen to. Plus the newspaper art is fun.
Jube
I think the bass is is lacking or just weak in this pressing. It doesn't go as deep as the digital recordings I have of this LP. Shame.
Ckelond
I have two copies which come with just 2 10" singles but no CD? Also the cover is just the artwork with no title in white on the cover. (also the front artwork is on the back in both copies I have. I believe they are promo copies but have the same serial number TICK001S.Anybody interested in making an offer on these promo copies go to user/PeoplesSoundRecords and I will send you pictures of this release, because I dont see it here.
Xisyaco
My copy isn't too noisy. However, the bass seems really elevated in the mix.
Best West
From my understanding, during the recording of this album Radiohead members recorded and pressed their individual parts onto vinyl and the sampled them back to create the final songs (similar to Portishead's recording method.) Therefore, the "noise" many of you are complaining about may just be the artifacts inherent in the songs as they were recorded.
Shak
Not the top of the heap when it comes to Radiohead pressings sadly. Pops clicks and sibilance are offered at no extra charge.
black coffe
Although the artwork is actually superb I also have a noisy copy which ruins especially the quietest parts.
Moogugore
does anyone else have "Side One" labels for both sides of the album?
Tar
It is at this point in Radiohead's career where they have shed nearly all resemblance to the Brit-rockers that put out "Creep"... The King Of Limbs is the band at its most abstract, but after a few listens the beauty of the songs really glow through the atmospheric, somewhat experimental veneer. For a record that is deeply rooted in electronica, it maintains an unexpected warmth, especially in its second half. As for the vinyl itself, it is just as high quality as I found my blue copy of OKNOTOK to be-- and that is superb (perhaps not as good as the UK XL pressing of Kid A, but to me, that is the gold standard and hard to top). On "Giving Up The Ghost" it sounds like Thom is in the room with me on acoustic guitar. All the instruments and sounds are clearly defined with no distortion of any kind. It's lovely in all aspects. I've read about other pressings that are not up to par, but this US version is absolutely great. Highly recommended if you like this album-- and listening to it in this format might get you to like it even more.
Inertedub
Great CD well worth picking up. No complaints here. ????
blodrayne
Beautiful sound & beautiful package. Buy it if you ever come across a copy.
Lonesome Orange Kid
I think it is a download card, I bought mine 2nd hand
Arar
Do you know in which way the digital download comes? Is it a common download card or is it hidden in the newspaper? I can't really find it...
Dammy
Well worth listening to and the newspaper artwork is breathtaking.
Ndyardin
This pressing is good, but not perfect. My copy doesn't have the noise mentioned by other reviewers, but there are a couple of clicks and pops, not enough to ruin the otherwise high SQ though.
Amis
Side A sounds fine. Side B is brutal, especially on tracks Codex & Give Up The Ghost. Which is a shame, because those are 2 of my favorites tracks on the album.
Felolune
Does any one have a copy of the bag / 'A full-colour piece of oxo-biodegradable plastic film holds it all together,' which they no longer need / want?If so can you please let me know.CheersDan
Morlunn
the vinyl itself is very clean and I can't find anything wrong with the audio quality. however the packaging makes me very sad. the album cover is very very flimsy, giving this a cheap feel. Hopefully the 2016 remasters have better packaging; I will weigh this in in my future purchases.
blac wolf
Picked this up today and I have to say it sounds pretty good. I don't have another pressing to compare but the sound quality is very good. There is some static though, not major but pretty typical.
Nettale
Continuing with the below comment....and how does it compares to the original 12" 2011 pressing? I'm in dubio as in which one to buy. Thx!
Ballardana
Can someone review this if you own? I want to find out how it compares to the original 10" pressings.
Larosa
Just picked up the 2016 XL King of Limbs last night. It's a quality pressing for sure! But the 45rpm Double 10" clear vinyl blow it out of the water! For instance, while listening to the 10", I frequently get the impression that each instrument is very much a separate entity in the grander performance... Almost as if it were being performed "live"... Having said that, this 33rpm pressing from XL is also excellent.
Delan
Just got these beautiful clear (GZ Media) records and they sound absolutely fantastic. Amazing clarity and separation and dead quiet (for the most part) when it's supposed to be... at least on sides A and B. NOW... if some ill-timed noise on sides C and D is going to drive you mad, avoid this pressing. But if you just write it off as part of the vinyl experience (as I do), buy em and enjoy! The separation, clarity and fullness on C and D is still very much present - you just gotta put up with a little bit of a noisy floor.
Virn
thanks for confirming what has been driving me crazy on side D, so noticeable after upgrading to decent equipment. I feel less insane
elektron
I got my copy a couple of months ago and it sounds great! I have not found any noise or marks. Beautiful album

I was determined to find a quiet noise-floor copy of this record and so I now have three copies (!) in my possession. In doing so, I've noticed there seems to be at least two separate pressings, based on what I can tell from the matrix run-outs. Here's the information I can provide about differences between the different versions:VERY LOUD NOISE FLOOR:(Pressed by GZ Media based on the matrix runout formula)[All machine stamped, bottom of text facing spindle; records have 'sharp' outer edges]Side One: 91880N1/C(B) ENDLESS BRANCHESSide Two: 91880N2/B(A) UNCONTROLLABLESide Three: 91880N3/A(B) A NEVER ENDING MESHSide Four: 91880N4/A(B) INTERTWINED IN TO EVERYTHINGRelease: https://www.discogs.com/Radiohead-The-King-Of-Limbs/release/2851025The parentheses are because of two copies I own w/ this machine-stamped, barely readable matrix, they have differing final letters coming after the '91880N#/' - these correspond to galvanoplasty. All the writing is in capital letters.QUIET NOISE FLOOR:(Pressed by Record Industry based on the matrix runout formula)[All hand-etched, bottom of text facing outer edge; records have 'flat' outer edges]Side One: 89184 1A TICK 001S Endless branchesSide Two: 89184 1B TICK 001S uncontrollableSide Three: 89184 2C TICK 001S a never ending meshSide Four: 89184 1D TICK 001S intertwined in to everythingRelease: https://www.discogs.com/Radiohead-The-King-Of-Limbs/release/8607579 (THIS RELEASE)One other difference I noticed is in the CD packaging. The Record Industry version has a very faint, brownish reflective film over the package, while the GZ Media version does not. This is an extremely small difference and probably would be difficult to determine which it is unless you've seen both or are directly comparing them. Besides these differences, I wasn't able to find anything different between the blotter papers, newspapers, or outer OBD plastic. It would be very useful if others could mention how loud the noise floor is for their pressing. Hopefully this is helpful to some - unfortunately, if the GZ Media version is an intrinsically worse pressing, there's no way to tell until the OBD plastic is opened up and the matrices are examined. Cheers!
Dianalmeena
Thank you for this! I am pleased to know I have the better pressing of this. I paid all of $30 for it a few years ago on here! It's definitely one of my favorites.
Tygrafym
thanks for this! got the GZ pressing :( Will keep an eye open for the other one

Thordibandis
Crazy that this went unnoticed for so long. Cheers for figuring all of this out and doing all the leg work. Apparently I had the Record Industry pressing this whole time.Odd that they'd use two pressing plants for a single release though, especially since they only sold this on their website.
Onaxan
It may take a while but eventually, inevitably, people will come to realise that this is yet another top quality record from Radiohead. They've barely put a foot wrong from Kid A onwards and this is definitely no exception. It's beyond me, that anyone could really consider OK Computer to be a better album than this. Having finally conceded that Killing Joke are no longer relevant as a studio band (and it hurts me to say that) I'm left with the conclusion that Radiohead are just about the only band that still matters. Would love it if they could convince Scott Walker to produce them at some point in the near future.
Dead Samurai
I just got this and I luckily have not experienced any issues with my copy. It sounds fantastic on both sides.
Todal
I love this album, but at this point I've owned two copies of this version and both have had a tremendous amount of noise on side C - two of the songs that demand the most silence from the noise floor. Has anyone else had this experience - perhaps a common pressing defect?
Usic
It's indeed the Newspaper Edition 2 X 10" edition I'm referring to. I was lucky enough to come across lucky number three - which ended up sounding very good w/ a quiet noise floor throughout. I've now noticed, however, that the matrix runouts differ between these versions. There must have been at least two different presses of this edition. I'll leave a separate review detailing this.
The Rollers of Vildar
  mjd5170 Are you talking about the newspaper edition (2x 10") or the regular version 1 LP. I have both versions: the newspaper edition sounds perfect and clean, but on the regular edition side C is full of clicks and noise (it spoils Codex and Give Up the Ghost). Hope that helps.
post_name
I've bought new copy and its dammaged from the beginning . On the second side there is a strange noise on the left channel.... its extremly annoying.. ;/
BOND
Yep, bought new sealed copy from my record store in France, and B side got some small cliks/noise every 3 seconds... For me it's most notable on the beginning and end of Codex and the intro of Give Up The Ghost, kinda ruining the intro :( Except that, A side sounds perfect great, Separator too!
Doulkree
Just received a copy from Amazon which has the same issue, left channel noise on side b most notable when listening to Give Up The Ghost and Separator. Did you return yours / have you had the same issue with other copies?
Haralem
This double 45rpm album sounds absolutely incredible. Sonically rich and clean - a very rewarding, heartfelt and deep record.
Rainpick
This is a totally epic release, both sonically and as a physical product - package.Super quality experience. Thanks Radiohead!!!
Qusserel
Mine came on 180 gram vinyl. A very good pressing of an awesome record. It also has a printed inner sleeve.
Dangerous
Aaaah. Such headphone fodder. Please, please respect the career arc. Do your due diligence. Note that they are building an unrivaled catalog. I can't wait to rock all 37 minutes of Limbs LOUD AS HELL in rural Maine this summer. Fill the forest with sound. Limbs is a cohesive, focused release. Nigel's production is exquisite. Codex is just beautiful.
Flocton
A confident, warm and atmospheric offering by a band who are obviously in their element right now. Musically it's complex, intricate and exceptionally well produced. The tracks play out more like electronica tracks do these days; layered grooves and elements that build over time, but still catch the listener out with cool bass lines and hooks. But the song content(s) are the stuff of indie folklore; lust, longing and often, loneliness. I've got it on repeat.
Rarranere
I opened my sealed copy and the vinyl had already many light marks and parallel scratches, and between the tracks and in the runout grooves it is crackling... does anyone have the same problem?
Mautaxe
My copy is pretty bad and I bought it sealed as well. Affects it heavily, needle is jumping a lot so it is basically unlistenable.
Coron
Yes. Apparently the pressing is bad. I actually have bought several copies of the 12" vinyl and they are all like that some worse than others. It sounds like the audio is clipping. It's amazing that so many are effected and there is hardly anything about it on the web. Also the band have not acknowledged it. This is all I could find on the web: http://www.kanyetothe.com/forum/index.php?topic=47503.0Then I sent a message to Chieftan Mews(Radiohead affiliated) on Facebook and this is what I got back in response: http://i1222.photobucket.com/albums/dd500/mrmagpie2/Mews%20Chat/Mews_official_edit.jpg
Zut
It was probably made cheaply in Eastern Europe, my PJ Harvey LP is like that. I'm still waiting for the special edition multipack. I hope it's not that craply made.
Uafrmaine
thanks for your replies!well, sure, the hairlines and light marks do not really affect playback. it's just sounding a little bit more like vinyl... ;)
Levaq
Yeah, mine's the same. There's a couple of small clicks but it still plays fine so I don't really mind. I wonder where they pressed it.
Ynap
Haven't played my copy yet but it looks to ok to me. The label etiquette has been torn in side one and is spread partly on the runout tho. I've seen this happen quite a few times.
Xtreem
If, for 37 minutes you can put aside the supposed fact that Radiohead are 'meant' to be a Rock band, you will get on much, much better with this album.Overall the album has a very warm, cosy feel to it; achieved by programmed clicks, pops and claustrophobic synth and guitar sounds. Alot of the sounds achieved in tracks will sound familiar: The broken record drumbeat in the opener 'Bloom' for example is very similar to that heard in Jonny Greenwoods 'Nudnik Headache' from Bodysong. 'Feral' seems to lie somewhere between 'Pulk/Pull revolving doors' and 'idioteque' in terms of both tempo and texture. While the albums most syrupy, laid back track 'Codex' makes use of slow, chordal piano playing not dissimilar to 'Pyramid song' yet incorporating the subtle constant bass kick found in ambient techno. In short, Radiohead have finally embraced the sound Amnesiac nodded at and In Rainbows shook hands with.It's true, it's not a ground breaking album. And no, it's not a complete departure from previous efforts. But does it need to be? After 7 relatively diverse albums, one would imagine the band would be allowed to release an album of songs the band simply want to play. An album of the music they like to listen to themselves, but stamped with their own unique trademarks.That said, it still fills out the bands Discography very nicely: lying at the ambient electronica end of their personal spectrum.Rating wise, The King of Limbs could sit at the 4 to 4.5 out of 5 mark. Why? Because it is without a doubt a genuinely pleasant listen - and possibly the bands most accessible album in recent times. In other words: short and sweet.
