I picked up Radiohead's "Hail To The Thief" the other day. As with the first listen of any Radiohead album, it's a difficult listen. I think it'll grow on me as I get further into it.
You know, I downloaded the unmastered MP3s a few months ago, listened to them each a couple of times, wasn't that impressed. Bought the CD on Tuesday, listened to it a couple of times in the car, wasn't that impressed. But today, I gave it another spin in the computer, and really got into it. Listened to it another 2 1/2 times.
Radiohead albums are historically difficult to get into at first, in my opinion.
