Hail to the Thief captures the intensity of the band that seemed to me to have been put on hold while they experimented with Kid A and Amnesiac. I loved both albums, but they lacked the consistency of previous and subsequent efforts. Song highlights for me are 2+2=5, Sit Down Stand Up, I Will.

It starts with what is still surely one of the most thrilling sounds known to modern man - a guitar being plugged into an amp. It's tempting to interpret that distinctive, buzzy pop as a statement of intent; enough of the radical experimentation, Radiohead seem to be saying - we're back and we're ready to rock.
It's not quite that simple, of course. Their sixth album may see Radiohead pulling back a little from the electronica-injected, multi-textured soundscapes of both 'Kid A' and 'Amnesiac' but it's by no means 'OK Computer', part II. 'Hail To The Thief' rather occupies a confident, half-way ground; it's the sound of Britain's most consistently challenging chart act achieving some kind of equilibrium, finally at ease both with themselves and with their status as this country's sole, meaningful commercial rock band.
Thom Yorke has described the album as Radiohead's "shiny pop record", which is of course his little joke. The title refers to George Bush's dubious election result in Florida and titles such as 'We Suck Young Blood' and 'Myxamatosis' imply that love songs are again thin on the ground. Themes of paranoia, ignorance, systemised political deceit, powerlessness and evil abound, but although Radiohead don't deny having a serious agenda, they have no interest in music as manifesto. "Are you such a dreamer, to put the world to rights?" are Yorke's first words (in '2 + 2 = 5'); he understands that it's a futile exercise, which is why his band concentrates rather on shining the light of their intelligence on the world around them, then reflecting it back at us, brilliant tunes attached.

I had all the songs from this CD already. They are great. This is maybe one of the best albums they have come out with so far. Every song is just great. BUT, i ordered the special edition because I was expecting it to be as good as the Amnesiac Limited edition cd which was actually made to look like a library book. Sadly this special edition is terrible. I can beleive this is a radiohead cd. The Cd package is of very poor quality. The whole thing looks like it will fall apart. I am a designer and I have to say this special edition is not worth the extra $$$$. Get the normal version.

People have been talking so much about how this cd will either be a "glorious" return to RH's earlier, rockier styles, or it will permanently exile them from pop music charts as they plunge deeper into eclectic sonic experimentation and artistic grandstanding. It's neither.. rather it is an exact and natural extension of the sounds they began hinting at with Amnesiac.
Kid A suprised the world with its electronic bleep-and-swirl jive, but Amnesiac was dismissed (by some) as just another set of songs from the same mould. But Amnesiac showed Radiohead maturing in its use of autre, electronic jiggery pokery into fluid natural textures, making use of them just as they do any other instrument, witnessed in "Pyramid Song" and "Spinning Plates" both of which are heavily doused in electronics but sound as if they could have come from any decade in modern music.
Hail to the Thief takes this concept further and shows a band very comfortable with who they are and their abilities. They no longer feel the need to experiment so deeply to show their "artsiness" and as a result, simply rock. But don't expect them to "Bends rock" or even "OK Computer rock" for that matter.. this band may be comfortable playing real instruments again, but they are definately not stupid enough to backtrack or devolve musically. The songs here comprise a certain angst that seems so true to todays world, full of lyrics about self-doubt, insecurity, mistrust in others, and the choice of whether to become involved, or watch it at home on the television. We need this album today, and we need Radiohead today, to be telling their message. There are many more radical bands out today, many with harsher views or more personal involvement.

Format: Audio CD
The latest Radiohead album, Hail To The Thief, is actually a tricky one to review. While it can't be denied that it doesn't match their two classics, The Bends and OK Computer, it is still a piece of art that proves the genious of Radiohead and shows some real music in comparison to today's majority of acts who are either schematic, uninspired, silly, or absolutely devoid of any talent.
One thing I'll have to admit is that so far I have listened not to britpop or alternative rock, but to American alternative post-grunge metal or, if you will, to much-hated nu-metal. And it is noteworthy that Hail To The Thief was the album that showed me how wrong I was.
The secret of Radiohead's music lies, in my opinion, in its unexplaiable expression. It was of course present on The Bends and OK Computer, but, as the new album is considerably less melodic than both, it is one of the first things that attract the listener's attention and make him fall in love with the music. Radiohead's ability to express feelings or states of mind or to recall situations from life in their music is untopped. Tom Yorke's vocals and lyrics (on Hail To The Thief they are deliberately 'childish' - just read the song titles - but it really helps settle the mood, making the album a slight medieval gothic flavour) suit the instrumental parts ingeniously well and alltogether they paint a wonderful atmosphere.
Some listeners say Hail To The Thief hasn't got a topical unity as OK Computer did, but I have to disagree and point out that the feeling of doom, end, and inevitable danger can be seen in any of the album's 14 tracks, giving the album a universal, apocalypthic side that so far has been absent in the group's catalog.
