Based on samples and truly unique for electronic music. This album is underrated and under-appreciated. You want something to chill and lounge to? look no further and go on The King of Limbs journey

I probably listen to this once a year, but always look forward to hearing it. The second half is much better than the first half.

Was reading a few comments on here last night suggesting that Supercollider, The Daily Mail, Staircase, and The Butcher could've fit on here. After listening to these songs, I can totally see Staircase and The Butcher fitting in here somewhere, but definitely not The Daily Mail or Supercollider.

A sublime and extremely atmospheric record from Radiohead that has proved itself to be very underrated indeed. This is a record that functions on rhythm, rather than melody or guitar riffs, and is all the more rewarding for it. Let it seep into your skin, and these dark, gorgeous tracks will begin to unravel. My personal favourite is "Codex" which has to be one of the most stunning tracks they've ever done, up there with "Pyramid Song" & "Idioteque".

The most underrated Radiohead album, and by a mile. For me, this is their second best behind only "In Rainbows". This album is just a masterpiece. I didn't like it on first listen, but boy, this album grows on you if you allow it! "Morning Mr Magpie" and "Separator" would be my two favorites right now, but this is bound to change since every song is great (except maybe "Feral", which is an ok song in the context of the album, but might be weird if taken out of context).

I've only listened to this album twice, but it's become one of my favorites by Radiohead. It's them at their most experimental, yet their softest and most mellow, this album has to be one of their best. To me it only rivals In Rainbows for 2nd.
