About this deal

It was released on 9 June 2003 through Parlophoneinternationally and a day later through Capitol Records in the United States. Cada disco viene en una funda con el arte de Stanley Donwood lo cual hace que la parte gráfica se pueda disfrutar más.

i love radiohead and i want the better copy so to me it was worth the extra cost and time tracking them down. Like all Radiohead albums, it's a slow grower, a densely packed collection of rapidly mutating sounds and surfaces that takes a while to comprehend. Scatterbrain is another blend of drum machine and sublime guitar riffs, reminding me a little of Morrissey's I Know It's Gonna Happen Someday, but with an eye on a vanishing future, rather than a vanished past.We use cookies to give you the best possible experience on our site, provide personalised content and advertising, analyse our traffic, and ensure you see more of what you love. is a minimal track, which builds a distant chiming guitar around REM/UP style drum machine, before veering off with "THE RAINDROPS".

In the ethereal Sail To The Moon he dreams of a future where a president might "know right from wrong"; where a saviour might "build an ark and sail us to the moon.I have some very good LP pressings in my collection, and this is one of the best, if not THE best sounding of them all.

Hail to the Thief is pretty much packed with forward thinking songs (though Myxomatosis sounds a bit duff- despite having lyrics found like Knives Out on the KidA-booklet)- the album rails at the 21st century waking nightmare. Its title implies that this is a collection filled with songs of anger and dissent, but Radiohead no longer howl at the moon like they did on 1995's The Bends . Hail To The Thief' is immersed in dread and paranoia, albeit a more visceral, emboldened dread and paranoia. Like the band's best work, Hail to the Thief requires more than a few listens to fully appreciate, but those who stick around will be richly rewarded. Although I think of myself as a big Radiohead fan (been listening to them since 97), Kid A alienated me hugely and I stopped following them for a long while.

Imagine a more subtle I Might Be Wrong; would make a good single along with Sail to the Moon, Where I End. Hail to the Thief is a really good album, there there and Myxomatosis are some of my favorites from the album, so why not get the CD? Radiohead's definition of pop has evolved from guitar-driven tracks with a Beatles influence to textured, willfully complex songs dripping with Pink Floyd-like ambition. Radiohead's Hail to the Thief bridges the gulf between OK Computer 's epic progressive rock and Kid A 's skittering electronic theatrics, borrowing equally from each.
