A Moon Shaped Pool (REVIEW!!!) by Radiohead

1462726126810

After FIVE years of waiting, Radiohead release A Moon Shaped Pool. Will it be good? Will it be album of the year? Of the decade??? I don’t know if it’s supposed to be alphabetical but here it is. Let’s do it. It was supposed to come out in an hour, but someone in google play put it online. I really hope this won’t be another “bleep bloop” album.(((IT JUST GOT DELETED FROM GOOGLE PLAY, SOMEONE WILL LOSE HIS/HER JOB)))

  1. Burn The Witch – What a great opener! This is just how an album should start. It reminds me of Steve Reich, maybe because he did some classical versions of Radiohead songs some years ago? (they were good) Also the video is really nice. Nice bass too. I remember all the hype for this song, it was incredible. 10/10
  2. Daydreaming – Oh god this intro is magically beautiful. Oh my goooood!!. Nevermind what I have said about this song before, this is no filler, this is one of the most beautiful songs of the decade. Thom’s voice sounds incredibly beautiful in this song. Where are the drums though? That’s fine. GOD THE BASS IS INCREDIBLE. Absolutely wonderful. 10/10
  3. Decks Dark – Reminds me of Amnesiac. I’VE MISSED THOM SO MUCH, FINALLY SOME NEW SONGS. And god this song is so good, really Radiohead-ish. THE BASS! GOOD THE BASS IS SO GOOD IN THIS ALBUM. This song is just way to good. This might be the album of the year. 10/10
  4. Deserted Island Disk – Nice guitar, reminds me of Nick Drake, maybe because it’s folk inspired? Yes. Anything with Thom singing is automatically an 8/10+. I think I just heard a Long Season sample? I might be wrong though. “YOU KNOW WHAT I MEEAAAAN” God that part is great. Did Phil get kicked out of Radiohead or what? Nice bleeps and bloops. 10/10
  5. Ful Stop – OH MY GOSH IT’S FUL STOP, THEY ACTUALLY DID IT. Very post-punk-ish intro, that’s really nice. The bass, even if repetitive and minimalistic, doesn’t fail to make me bob my head. It actually doesn’t sound that much like Ful Stop, ’till Thom starts singing. This album has some heavy Amnesiac vibes going. GOD THIS SONG IS SO FUCKING GOOD. WHEN THE DRUMS KICK IN, SHIT GOES DOWN. AAAH THIS IS SO GOOD. AOTY COMING THROUGH. BEST SONG IN THE ALBUM DAMN. 11/10
  6. Glass Eyes – GOD THAT INTRO. AAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH. THIS IS SOME KING CRIMSON LEVEL SHIT. OH MY GOD. HOW DO THEY MANAGE TO MAKE SUCH A GREAT ALBUM (lol not TKOL tho). I love the piano here. Really atmospheric (reminds me of Talk Talk) This is just way too good. Oh. My. God. Ah. Aahhhhh. NO. THIS IS NOT MUSIC. THIS IS POST-MUSIC. 11/10
  7. Identikit – That intro is so incredible, it made my dog jump out of the window (just kidding I don’t have a dog) Why are Radiohead SO DAMN GOOD?!?!?! THE SONG GETS SO MUCH BETTER. RADIOHEAD DOES IT AGAIN. THAT SYNTH HOLY SHIT (AND HOW THE GUITAR JUST KICKS IN) NONONONONONONONONOONONONONONON THIS IS JUST TOO GOOD TO BE REAL. I THINK I AM DREAMING. AM I DREAMING? FUCKING RADIOHEAD, BEING THIS INCREDIBLY GOOD SHOULD BE ILLEGAL. THE GUITAR AT THE OUTRO JESUS CHRIST. 15/10
  8. The Numbers – THEY DID IT BOYS, THEY DID IT AGAIN. ALBUM OF THE YEAR IS FINALLY HERE. “A MOON SHAPED POOL”. 03:00 MAKES THIS AOTY. No. I think this is their best album. 12/10
  9. Present Tense – THAT INTRO. GOD DAMNIT RADIOHEAD. HOW DID THEY MAKE THIS. HOW DO THEY EVEN COME UP WITH SUCH GOOD MUSIC. THIS IS JUST TOO GOOD.I love how the guitar plays across all of the song. AND THOSE OOOOHHHS (By A CHOIR!!!). probably the most comfy song of the album, along with Daydreaming. 10/10
  10. Thinker Tailor Solider Sailor Rich Man Poor Man Beggar Man Thief (god what a long name) – This song is good, just not as good as the other songs. But it’s damn good, that’s for sure. Specially the strings (thanks Johnny!!!) 10/10
  11. True Love Waits – OH. MY. GOD. IT’S FINALLY HERE. TRUE LOVE AWAITS. I’VE BEEN WAITING SO LONG FOR THIS SONG. GOD HOW BEAUTIFUL. THIS IS… TOO GOOD. MAN THIS PIANO MADE ME SAD (as expected from Radiohead) It’s decided. This is album of the year. This is one of the best ending songs ever. It just works so well. 13/10

Just read the song reviews and tell me this isn’t a perfect album. I dare you.

God, this might be Radiohead’s best album of the decade. Also, speaking of decades, this is also the best album of the decade. This was just way too beautiful, from start to finish. Thank you Radiohead for this music. Now I only have to wait for that Fishmans album that is coming out next month

It’s obvious, but I will just say it anyways. This is a 10/10
