Customer Reviews

Great album although I think it goes a little out at times.
Marc Andrew Hale
As a long time Radiohead fan I found a new interest in electronic music via Thom Yorke's record Eraser.
Sparx
I've listened to this album now several times and enjoy it each time.

This record has been a long time coming. Atoms for Peace initially began when (Radiohead's) Thom Yorke took his solo record on tour. The band's sound adopted a good deal from Yorke's solo album THE ERASER: it's sometimes paranoid, sometimes jittery, sometimes claustrophobic. If Yorke's name wasn't enough, Atoms for Peace sure has the pedigree of a great band: (The Red Hot Chili Peppers') Flea commands the bass, (Ultraista and Radiohead's producer) Nigel Godrich plays guitar, (Ultraista and Beck) drummer Joey Waronker provides half of the percussion with Mauro Refosco laying down most of the electronic beats. The band's music is an interesting mix of electronic and material music, a nd it is often hard to tell where the real percussion stops and the electronic percussion begins.

Some of this material is pretty old, and band members have hinted that they have been sitting on it for a while now before its release. "Judge, Jury, and Executioner" was debuted in 2009 (it shares no relation with the similar Radiohead song). AMOK was created within a handful of days - the writing process for the band started with all musicians in the studio, free-form jamming without creating "takes" or stopping. Afterwards, the hours of material that they created was gleaned through, and the members picked out parts they thought were particularly interesting or beautiful. This makes for a great academic exercise, but what about a great music-listening experience?

The problem with AMOK is also its strength. The album is concerned primarily with being interesting: achieving new sounds, creating strange transitions, using instrumentation in different ways. The chief concern here is not the listener.

it's a beautiful, naive piece of art. thom yorke is more free, relaxed in this album with great musicians and a great producer. it's worth to listen to many many times. thom yorke's music is like it has its own genetic code almost. once you can recognize it and you get used to it, you go into his world immediately.

my personel favourite songs are; unless, reverse running, before your very eyes and amok. especially "unless" is something special, amazing amazing song.

That all i have to say about that. It's complicated music, it's one of the best albums I've listened, not only for this year.

I love this CD. It is unlike anything I've heard from Thom Yorke or Radiohead. The familiar voice is there, but the music itself is fresh, with great lyrics and interesting rhythms. If you like this singer even a little bit, you'll love this album.

I am thoroughly enjoying this wonderful album, beginning to end! It was recommended by a random person I happened to meet, and I am so happy with my decision to purchase it. It is the soundtrack of this part of my life.

This is a very Kid-A like work. I love almost all the tracks on here, but Ingenue and "Before your very eyes" really stand out.

I wanted to share a few comments in regards to Atoms For Peace Amok. Many say Thom Yorke is the new generational star when it comes to pop rock today. If you are a fan of Radiohead, or any work by Thom if its The Eraser, or songs as a solo act like Hearing Damage, this is a must to add to your collection. Keep in mind Atoms For Peace also has the "sixth" member of Radiohead Nigel Godrich. If you like the track Default from Amok, you will enjoy the whole album! I wont go into any diatribe, considering I give this a solid 5/5 stars.... unlike others who just get jealous of Thom Yorke and his utter talent. I highly recommend the video of Ingenue that Thom recently did on Jonathan Ross, trust me, you dont want to miss it!
