It doesn’t stand out compared to everything else but it’s still a fine album. I was listening to In Rainbows followed by The King of Limbs then A Moon Shaped Pool yesterday. Even though I was half paying attention (I was working at the same time), I didn’t find The King of Limbs that much less enjoyable than the other two. In fact I found it more intriguing - it now feels like the “misunderstood” album that no one likes despite it being quite a nice listen.
It’s a fine album if you lower your expectations a bit and think of it as “another Radiohead album”, rather than the magnificent follow-up to In Rainbows it isn’t that everyone hoped for.
