Rolling Stone (p.68) - Ranked #5 in Rolling Stone's '50 Best Albums Of 2011' -- "This was a record that grew all year -- in your room, and onstage."
Entertainment Weekly (p.73) - "Thom Yorke's vocals, usually a wild counterpoint to the band' hyper-controlled rhythms, are especially abstract and supple." -- Grade: B
Alternative Press (p.99) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "There's just incredible depth to THE KING OF LIMBS, and if you're impatient, you'll miss it."
Magnet (p.39) - Ranked #12 in Magnet's '20 Best Albums Of 2011' -- "KING OF LIMBS' eight songs are ghost stories from inside the machine."
The Wire (p.62) - "'Codex' is a post-traumatic ballad, its lushly decaying piano chords, disconsolate horns and aphasic vocals resonating with cryptic affect."
CMJ - "Thom Yorke's signature delicate floating falsetto is the primary vocal method....The vocals are used mostly as another tonal instrument to add to the soundscape-style songs..."
Clash (magazine) - "Piano ballad 'Codex' is the standout song, slow and insistent in pace with a smattering of brass and strings..."
Record Collector (magazine) (pp.94-96) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "KING OF LIMBS is a conglomerate work, part soundtrack, part reverb and part voice/rhythms....'Lotus Flower''s distinct shuffle is certainly worthy of single status."
Uncut (magazine) (p.34) - Ranked #7 in Uncut's '50 Best Albums Of 2011' -- "[A] suite of eight limber, nagging songs whose organic and electronic origins became more blurred than ever."
