They should cease sounding like Radiohead. Everything else is up to them.

A Moon Shaped Pool didn't sound like typical Radiohead at all. It was way more dulled down and easy listening. Not a bad thing, since I actually like it. Also, Thom Yorke actually made me not want to cut my ears right off for once.

This doesn't make a lot of sense considering the diversity of their discography

It makes sense when you remember how ineffective diversity was at bringing Radiohead out of mediocrity.

There's nothing diverse about them except for the recent album.

AMSP was a complete 180 from that suckfest, The King if Limbs.

Both accurate statements.

If TKOL proved anything to me, it's that they had used all of their best ideas for their alternative/experimental/electronic styles up. I mean, their albums were all quite different until the 2000's. They used the same tricks for five albums, and it got tiring by TKOL. If you ask me, AMSP is just an example of musical growth.

Their recent album is probably their most derivative of their previous work any Radiohead album has ever been are we even listening to the same band here

In fact like half the album is composed of songs written in previous eras and it shows

The only time Radiohead released back to back very similar albums is Kid A/Amnesiac
