Whenever I think of Radiohead, first of all , I think of a band who is on a quest, on a search. You might say it is only the egotistic quest of a band field with the need to reproduce themselves under different angles, but that it seems to me already a lot to look for something else than only reproducing a scheme answering only to financial realities.
Out of the King of limbs, Codex is maybe the track that brought me back the most to the radiohead I knew, with a thick fluid sound, unfolding a simple and quiet songwriting. But what i like about the album is a search of a fusion between the possibilities brought by a studio recording and the one brought by a live. It is in this fusion or search of a link between those 2 environments that I read the essence of the album. What do you think ?
