Radiohead - A Moon Shaped Pool Album Wiki

A Moon Shaped Pool is the ninth studio album by the English rock band Radiohead. It was released digitally on 8 May 2016, with CD and vinyl releases in June 2016 through XL Recordings. Radiohead recorded A Moon Shaped Pool in southern France with longtime producer Nigel Godrich. It features strings and choral vocals arranged by guitarist Jonny Greenwood and performed by the London Contemporary Orchestra. Several songs, such as "True Love Waits" and "Burn the Witch", were written years earlier. The lyrics address climate change, groupthink, and heartbreak; many critics saw them as a response to singer Thom Yorke's split from his partner Rachel Owen. The artwork was created by Yorke with longtime collaborator Stanley Donwood, who created abstract works by exposing his paintings to weather. Radiohead promoted A Moon Shaped Pool with singles and videos for "Burn the Witch" and "Daydreaming", a viral campaign of social media and postcards, and a series of video vignettes. A world tour began in May 2016, with legs in 2017 and 2018 and headline performances at festivals including Glastonbury and Coachella. The tour included a controversial performance in Tel Aviv, disregarding the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions campaign for an international cultural boycott of Israel. A Moon Shaped Pool appeared in many publications' lists of the year's best albums. It was the fifth Radiohead album nominated for the Mercury Prize, and was nominated for Best Alternative Music Album and Best Rock Song (for "Burn the Witch") at the 59th Annual Grammy Awards. It topped the charts in several countries, becoming Radiohead's sixth number-one album in the UK, and was a bestseller on vinyl. It was certified certified gold in the UK and US in 2018..

  • Radioheads Achieves Masterpiece: Album So Weird No One Listens To It

    From least to most favorite, I've found all of Radiohead's albums enjoyable, that is, through In Rainbows. Since then, it's like they just don't care anymore. Hey, maybe they don't and that's fine. "Make the music you want to make" should be every artists goal. Sadly, as a result, I've haven't been able to enjoy anything they've done since 2007. They've de-evolved into a mystic yet soulless sounds like some kind of electronic jazz where everyone just does whatever the hell they want. I'm sure their hardcore "they can do no wrong" fans love it, as it seems they always relish being the only Radiohead fan in the room. "You just don't get it..." which naturally gives one a sense of superiority. Yep, you're right. I don't get it, and I'm not ashamed of it.

    This is the album, you put on on the bleakest night in the dead of winter. Sit tight by the hearth, listen to the fire crackle. Let it coincide with Thom's delicate whispers, and moans. The chill mountain air will bite at you while, Desert Island Disk, sets the tempo for the night. And Ful Stop resonates and joins the chorus of wolves howling off in the distance. I should know I live up in the Mountains of Montana. GET THIS ALBUM!!
  • Wow...

    A beautiful, haunting, and poignant record. Subtle yet full of visceral emotional power. I've played it through a few times and it grows on me more with each listen. One of Radiohead's best albums but I advise giving it time to absorb. Brilliant stuff.
  • Best work in years

    Man. iTunes deciding for whatever reason not to sell the “specter” single, and the band’s refusal to do the same with “ill wind” is such a bummer, I bout the deluxe thingy, but for saps who didn’t have 80$ to blow for one extra song.....c’mon. I SAY THIS BECAUSE THE ALBUM IS SO, SO GOOD, YOU SHOULD BE ABLE TO EXPERIENCE THE WHOLE STUDIO SESSION. It’s gorgeous. Just beautiful. Kid A will always be my fav, but this one is damned close. Totally redeemed after King Of Limbs.
  • Sonically dense ambient rock.

    Before I start, I will note that I am rather new to Radiohead. AMSP was released just as I started listening to them. They couldn't have released a better record to draw me in. A Moon Shaped Pool satisfied my preference for alternative/art rock, but also catered to my ambient/electronic tendencies. Put simply, AMSP is delightful.
  • Who copied who?

    Well now. Everyone demonized Coldplay for copying Radiohead. Take a listen to Daydream, 2016 and then Coldplay’s song O. (2014). Yes Radiohead copied them!!

    Like Japan who started a rock band but ended with David Sylvian solo career... Listen to Japan and their individual work and you will heart where Bjork and Radiohead came from...
  • Great album!

    I'm not a diehard Radiohead fan. Normally, there is a song here and there that I like, but my interest in the band has always been casual. This album took me by surprise. It's one of those rare albums one can listen from start to finish... and then start over again. Beaufiful song writing, fresh melodies, rich textures. By far, one of my favorite albums of 2016.
