8 Songs, 38 Minutes

EDITORS’ NOTES

The second solo album from Thom Yorke shares with its predecessor an exclusive reliance on keyboards and electronics to accompany the Radiohead frontman's haunting vocals. But Tomorrow's Modern Boxes is sparser and less groove-driven than The Eraser. While a couple of tunes are fueled by modified house beats, pieces like the beatless, ethereal instrumental "Pink Section" and the delicately floating "Interference" allow Yorke to achieve the kind of sonic simplicity that becomes difficult when you've got a whole band's ideas to contend with.

Great collection of songs

Anyone who knows Radiohead’s work, knows Thom is the one pushing the electronic envelope. So if a minimal, snappy, beautifully arranged little goldmine of down beat electronic soul with terrific hooks isn’t what you want, see the upset know nothings below.
So for the people who are actually fans, let’s leave Radiohead out of this. Makes it simpler:
It’s better than “the eraser,” or at least more consistently arresting, it moves like an actual album. It’s way more sparse and minimal than AMOK, a couple tracks are very intimate in a nearly bjork (homogenic era). A couple are great dance tracks, especially “the mother lode.” Gorgeous beat, and Thoms vocals are WAY up front, hovering over the electronics.
Short and sweet.
