I wonder how many people will vote 'terrible' just because they dislike Radiohead, despite them not having heard the album.

probably only about a handful...MB is swarming in Radiohead lovers so those few terrible votes won't matter much in the long run.

"King of Limbs" is a masterpiece. Every Radiohead album should be viewed and critiqued on it's own without being influenced by anything that has come after or before it. Every song on this album is perfectly formed and has it's own beauty and story to tell. The only thing that I can complain about is the length which only stands at 37 minutes with 8 songs, but every song has it's place.

My favourite tracks especially are: Bloom, Lotus Flower (Sensational), Codex and Give Up The Ghost.

gonna need to listen a few more times before i can really decide, but so far I'm really really digging it.

The second half (so lotus flower on) is perfect.

The length surprises me. But I can't complain because I'm not a fan of overlong albums. Haven't heard it yet though, maybe it will feel short, maybe it will feel just right.

What exactly leads you to anticipate this being an issue? I'd be more concerned that people would vote "excellent" without having heard it, out of obsessive (and excessive) love of the band - NOT the reverse.

he only said that because he saw that I voted "terrible" is all.
