A lot of the songs, besides True Love Waits, aren't that old. They've just been been played for the past few years. And check when they toured in 2006 - they played the majority of the songs on In Rainbows before it came out. Nothing new for them.

Anyway, this album is going to take some digesting but holy fuck, a lot of the soundscaping is pretty incredible. It's all so dreamy, delicate and orchestral.

Looking forward to delving into this, I hope it does more for me than Gore.

It doesn't necessarily grab me after the first listen, but i'm listening to it while at work. Not optimal conditions for enjoying music, i guess. I'm pretty sure I'll be in love with it soon enough, though.

the 2 biggest keywords for them always seem to be "gorgeous" and "haunting". as usual, both those words describe this album.


also: DECKS DARK! that choir. the bass. Phil's drumming. oh my god.

Yeah. The drum SOUND on Decks Dark.

That's how you engineer a drum sound right.

Good driving music on Ful Stop. Perfect for the morning drive

Yea Decks Dark is so great. Idk why but I feel like that song has an old school feel to it. I think it's Thoms vocals .. Anyone else getting that? Cant wait to see them in August.

3:50 of Tinker Tailor Soldier... is reminiscent of a part of one of the godspeed albums, can't remember which.

After further listening, I really like A Moon Shaped Pool, but I'm also sort of wishing it wasn't so aggressively gentle. Don't get me wrong, I enjoy slow ballad type stuff, but outside of Burn the Witch and the end of Ful Stop, there are hardly any bangers (excuse me for the played term) on this album. Even The King of Limbs had more tracks that cook than this.

I'm also finding Thom to be almost too restrained. He's coming up with a lot of gorgeous melodies, but I still miss the "Thom spazzes out" moments of songs like Paranoid Android ("Gucci little piggy!"), Idioteque ("This is really happening!"), 2+2=5 ("You have not been paying attention!") and even Nude ("You'll go to hell for what your dirty mind is thinking").

I kinda love the restraint after the last two albums were so...vibrant. Also glad the soundtrack work has bled into their songs - really suits the visual quality of their music. Been listening to it nonstop.

Anyone seen this? http://thenumbers.rocks
Somebody should do the same thing for Deftones. Way better than all those eliminations.
I hate White Pony.
