Radiohead - Hail To The Thief 
by Dr Fever

Five Star: A look at albums that are so good that they impress even the most cynical of critics. Very few albums are superior enough to obtain a five star rating but occasionally a band slips through the river of mediocrity that is the modern music industry and they produce an album that restores our faith in the future of rock! This series is a look at such albums. 

I can remember a time that I used to totally LOATHE Radiohead. And, I admit, I loathed them having never heard their music all that much. My hatred was born out of a belief that nothing as pretentious as this band could EVER be good. What can I say....I saw the error of my ways.

For those who have heard Radiohead's last two albums ('Kid A' and 'Amnesiac') then you know that Thom and the boys weren't content to sit around just be the gods of standard Brit-Pop. And, if we've learned anything from Metallica, change can be a bad thing apparently (at least as far as SOME 'fans' are concerned.) But, Radiohead more than silenced their critics and released two of the most critically acclaimed albums of the last few years. "Hail To The Thief" is just the natural progression. 

But, for all you fans out their hoping for "The Bends Rebent" or "Ok Computer Rebooted" or some such thing..don't worry, they've brought back the guitars and found a happy medium as far as combining the two distinct sounds they've created over the years. And, by doing this, they leave no doubt; Pretenders to their crown (*cough* Coldplay *cough*) will have to wait a few more years until Thom Yorke goes completely insane and decided to stop making music. Hopefully, that day is a LONG way off.
