RADIOHEAD ~ THE KING OF LIMBS 20 HOURS LATER>>>

I've been listening to the new Radiohead album almost non stop since it came out, and since I refuse to believe that this new release was a travesty. All set aside and especially my first review of this album, I just want to say that when one sits down and really listens to the album in it's entirety for 20 hours straight, it grows on you a bit. Not really 20 hours straight but nearly just as well. I started to slowly take apart each song and verse and beat and note for gods sake. I am an analyst. Now I know where the word anal comes from and it's not the one you're thinking. This album has been transcendental for me and I've been places and feel like I've gotten so deep into the psyche of  Thom Yorke. I  wish they made a movie called "Being Thom Yorke" because I want to be what I feel right now. I want to reverse things I've said and people I've hurt. I want to make people understand how absolutely deep this album actually is and now I understand why people won't get it. The ones that say they do, say so because they are just following the hype, they really don't unless they really dig into the album and disassemble it like taking apart your grandpas typewriter. The textures and repetitive mantras are so indicative of simmering within your mind without you really knowing it until that one key hits. It's like a hypnotist snapping his finger and waking you up and the world around you has changed like a trip or shamanic dream. It's like looking at a holographic poster for the first time and NOT seeing that sail boat in the picture...then you finally start to see it popping out right in front of you and it's the greatest thing you've ever seen. Then after the sail boat, the birds flying around start popping out from the background, then the trees...The King of Limbs is genius.
