You couldn’t get away with paying what you wanted this time, but Radiohead’s eighth album arrived just as suddenly as its predecessor, accompanied by little fanfare save for a video of Thom’s unsuccessful audition for the next series of So You Think You Can Dance. Its low-key release was appropriate – this was an album that revealed its secrets reluctantly. Heavily influenced by the sinuous electronica of Four Tet and the emerging UK bass scene, its slithering grooves also housed some of Radiohead’s most affecting melodies, not least on the heartbreaking ‘Codex’.
