Radiohead: The King of Limbs 

Radiohead's new album is not a waste of your money. The King of Limbs is fine.

The point of this review is this: Radiohead's new album is not a waste of your money. The King of Limbs is fine.

Yes, fine - because that's all it is. When you think about the grand scheme of modern music, purchasing a Radiohead record will never, ever be a bad thing. What you get from this band is always intelligent - no matter how much you've convinced yourself that Hail to the Thief was a bad record.

But when you think about the grand scheme of Radiohead, The King of Limbs is nothing impressive. Let me tell you what was impressive: the jarring synthesis of electronics and wailing vocals on Kid A. The integration of downbeat on "Backdrifts." Or the drum-driven In Rainbows. Radiohead will sell millions of copies of The King of Limbs over the next few weeks. People will call it genius. But it is hardly the band's most salient moment. Sorry.

Recommended download: "Little by Little"

    Little Bites: Thanksgiving Dinner is Served! Restaurants that will cook for you on Thursday

    While many of us are going to be slaving over stoves, stuffing, brining or the always fun deep-frying our butterball turkeys this Thursday, there are options for those who don't feel like sticking their hands in the cavity of a 20-pound bird or cutting up the neck to stew some gravy. For all of you who would rather have a skilled chef prepare your fixins, here's a list of restaurants serving Thanksgiving Dinner, courtesy of Visit Bend.
