First off if you haven’t seen the Netflix short film accompanies this album. – Stop reading this and enjoy 15 or so minutes of bliss!

Yorke is back with his third solo album. Full of the pops, clicks and glitches expected from the Radiohead front man. – It feels like flying through a dystopian landscape.

Transporting us through a dystopian landscape this album reaches truly beautiful heights especially with “Dawn Chorus”.

This album reaches beautiful heights especially with “Dawn Chorus”. The ANIMA opener (Traffic) surrounds us with its jagged beats and syncopated vocals. This marks a deep dive into an album full of claustrophobic, Orwellian nightmares.

Collaborating with a long time partner-in-crime Nigel Godrich. Yorke delivers an album that makes the “sad” beautiful and the vulnerable accessible.

Final thought: If you’re not already a fan of Thom Yorke and Radiohead this probably isn’t for you. If you are… welcome to a glitchy synth driven masterpiece.
