So Radiohead's latest, bewildering, brilliant album is here. But, if you're at the water-cooler and don't know what to say about it, here's a handy review by an eight-year old so you know what's what.
After nearly the entirety of the internet chipped in with their thoughts on the collection of tracks, it's interesting to see what the youth of today think about indie-music's shining light.
The little scamp called 'Burn the Witch' "festival like" which is a pretty glowing reaction compared to 'Daydreaming' which gets, "A long song kind of boring" - brutal. Track four, 'Desert Island Disk' is initially the child's favourite, yet later 'Tinker Tailor...' gets a special circle round it and is now called, "My favourite song on the album".
For 'The Numbers' he says, "reminds me of Kung fu Panda", which we assume is a good thing? There have been quite a few sequels, but if it's the original you'd assume it's a positive. 'True Love Waits', the album closer is assessed as "could make people cry", not wrong there, either. At this point I think I'm meant to say, 'This kid gets an A'.
You can see the full review here, and to be fair a lot of it is spot-on, although the 7/10 for an album that makes you cry is a bit harsh:
