A fascinating album. I admit, it took me until a couple months ago to start to actually buy into the Radiohead hype. If you're like me, keep trying and things will eventually click. Glad I'm finally able to get all that's happening here. The collision of genres, the beautiful lyrics and the depiction of despair is all so incredibly well executed. Bravo.

This album is a perfect follow-up to In Rainbows and The King Of Limbs. This series of three album is as solid as it can get, not that many bands have made three close-to-perfection albums in a row. I'm a huge fan of Radiohead, but mostly of their music from 2007 and on. This is where they went from great to legendary in my mind. And this album is a good example of what I love about this band.

A Moon Shaped Pool is a powerful album that you really have to listen to and to experience. It cannot be described by words (well, I can't). And it ends up with the most devastating song ever, True Love Waits. This song will break you into pieces.

Amazing album.

A beautiful album full of strange and eerie songs that only Radiohead could deliver.
Following this release, Radiohead broke an international cultural boycott by playing in Tel Aviv, enabling each of the band to fund their very own moon shaped (swimming) pool in exotic locations (best avoid the west bank and Gaza chaps as the locals are a little rough).

listened again after a lot of time and now I'm pretty sure it's my 3rd fav radiohead album after ok computer and kid a. the beginning of tinker tailer with its 2 simple layers is the only part that isn't masterful. I think radiohead took the spot for my favorite band of all time from the beatles, if still not as important/influential/necessary, when this album moved up to my top 3 radiohead albums yesterday.

I'd be more than happy if their next album tied the quality of my 8th favorite from them (hail to the thief or king of limbs, so close it changes all the time). what an amazing band.

I can't think of any movie/book/videogame/album I'm looking forward to more than the next radiohead album.

(sorry for leaving like a million comments on this album!)

The way Radiohead mixes ambience, minimalism, and electronica is really great here, with only a couple dry moments that you find yourself drifting away from. It's another great Radiohead album for sure, but it likely does not deserve a rating of 88/100, or to be 159th in the overall chart.

Radiohead are like the musical version of Cold War espionage thrillers aka the Ipcress File and Funeral In Berlin. If you don't know what the hell i'm talking about you have some catching up to do. I have two other Radiohead albums, OK Comuter and Kid A, however my favourite track over the three albums is 'Burn the Witch', the upbeat feel to the track and superb synth string textures lay the foundation for some of the best vocal I have heard on a Radiohead track. The rest of the album has taken three or four listens for me to really get into it. Over time I see this rising to be another classic comparable to Kid A.
