Grade: B+

After releasing seven albums since 1993, Radiohead has just debuted their newest album “King of Limbs.” Previous album norms consisted of melodic guitar-centered compositions. However, “King of Limbs” does not specifically follow these patterns, for it is more electronically centered.

Many fans are distraught by the lack of substance in the album, as it is only 37 minutes long, and feel that tracks end abruptly. The sudden stop could be intentional, as previous Radiohead albums are much more lengthy.

“King of Limbs” toys with various elements previously explored in original albums, but expands musically as well. Many songs consist of loud drum loops, piercing horns, clattering, and sharp vocals from singer Thom Yorke that combine to create a heavy presence of electronic percussion. The album definitely has an interesting sound and is something worth checking out.
