One of my least favourite Radiohead albums. It's just a load of blippy bloppy noises with very little melody or feel. There are some nice grooves and textures but as a collection of songs it falls very flat for me. It seems they've forgotten or don't know how to write songs anymore. I can never remember a thing about it once it's finished.

This album is very cool, it just sits weirdly in Radiohead's catalogue because it sounds a lot like Thom Yorke's solo albums. (which are great btw)
Perfect album to get lost in.

KOL is a beautiful but difficult album. It takes time and a few listenings in order to appreciate it. With such experimental music, Radiohead reaches true art. The live "From the Basement" really helps to realize how great this album is.

This album is kinda boring. In my opinion, it doesn't really hook onto me and is a little overrated. I might try it again some other time, but I don't see myself listening to it anytime soon. Don't get me wrong, I like slow albums like a moon shaped pool or to be kind, but this is lackluster.

the first half of the album (except Bloom) is sometimes a exhausting listen but there are certainly beautiful parts as well there... the second half of the album (starting from Lotus Flower) has many of the best songs of Radiohead, beautiful, haunting, just primo Radiohead. The combination of trying new things and going new ways (the software of Jonny Greenwood, the percussion of Phil Selway) and the sheer beauty of Thom Yorke, makes this album a beautiful and nice journey to a colourful world.

I don't get people saying Lotus Flower is the best song here. I guess I have not heard it enough. Favs: Little By Little, Codex, Give Up The Ghost.

By far, Radiohead's most experimental album, or at least, the band's most electronic record. The first half is full of blips and bloops but then the second half has more organic sounding songs. It's not the band's best, but it's not as bad as many people consider it to be. From "Lotus Flower" to the end of the record, it is a very enjoyable experience.

I suggest listening live version (From The Basement 2011)... I think you will reconsider this album!

Codex is a masterpiece.

This is in no way a bad album. It has many beautiful moments. But... this is one of their weakest releases they have put out. Radiohead has put up a standard to their art that can be very difficult to match. I appreciate them taking a risk on this album but it just didn't work as well as some of the albums before it. That is the simplest I can put it.
