About this deal

Hail to the Thief is a really good album, there there and Myxomatosis are some of my favorites from the album, so why not get the CD? I know there's some confusion as to which release sounds the best, who pressed what when, etc, but if you can get your hands on this 2021 re-issue, you're on the true path. Confirming Thom Yorke in the role of a modern seer and soothsayer, it doesn't flinch from whispering uncomfortable secrets about our society's slow slide into drugged sleep. In the ethereal Sail To The Moon he dreams of a future where a president might "know right from wrong"; where a saviour might "build an ark and sail us to the moon.

Instead, they use eloquent metaphors and complicated arrangements to express the uncertainty, fear and anger arising from the 2000 US presidential election and a post-9-11 world. Moving slightly away from the heavy electronic influenced last two albums and back towards more intense numbers (a la 'OK Computer'). Volume 2 of Madness B-Sides "I Do Like To B-Side The A-Side", across 11 hit singles from "Driving In My Car" to "(Waiting For) The Ghost. There's still room for hope, Yorke seems to be saying; there's still time to wake up and take charge of our lives rather than living at the disposal of dubiously motivated leaders, corporations and conglomerates.

I have been collecting these 2 CD DVDs from Pablo Honey up to Hail to the Thief and yet more beautiful music from Yorke and the gang has been produced, my only dissapointment was in the DVD which was a little lacking in body, especially when you compare it with The Bends, the bonus material almost double the content of the main disc, with tons live vids and alternate takes on the DVD, yet hail to the thief only had about 15 mins of content. Escaping this sorry world in dreamland, a vague Beckettian indicnation surfaces- "We don't want the loonies taking over" as sublime backing vocals and fractally-fractured guitars bend and chime- Where I End and You Begin is another of the more instant songs- something uncertain between and lost, the vague theme of the album?I know a few people who didn't get on with this album initially, but after hearing it on LP have got in to it and now love it! That ish was unlistenable; sounded like it had been dubbed over to a blank cassette, then pressed to uneven vinyl with rough edges and off-center stickers. The vinyl LP on my system sounds way better than the CD, (where most CD to LP comparisons on my system sound 'different - not better or worse', this is clearly better than the CD).

Certain items can take longer to source than the estimated week, particularly during busy trading periods and may take longer to arrive at our warehouse. Radohead progress further on from 2000's Kid A and 2001's Amnesiac (which were hardly commercial flops- both hitting the top echelons in the US charts!Additionally make sure your User-Agent is not empty and is something unique and descriptive and try again. The raindrops, the raindrops, the raindrops, the raindrops, the raindrops, the raindrops, the raindrops. one of the most acclaimed concept albums of all time, 'the wall' from 1979 is renowned as roger waters' rock opera dealing with. And in I Will, Everyman calmly turns the tables on those who'd deny him a future: "I won't let this happen to my children, meet the real world coming out of my shell . Like all Radiohead albums, it's a slow grower, a densely packed collection of rapidly mutating sounds and surfaces that takes a while to comprehend.

We also specialise in Limited Edition coloured vinyl so if that’s your thing you have come to the right place.Cada disco viene en una funda con el arte de Stanley Donwood lo cual hace que la parte gráfica se pueda disfrutar más. A Punchup at a Wedding is another fused track, mixing electronic drum sounds with emotive piano and a choir of trading vocals, as a subtle riff underpins the song. Like the band's best work, Hail to the Thief requires more than a few listens to fully appreciate, but those who stick around will be richly rewarded.
