Editorial Reviews

Atoms for Peace is Thom Yorke, Nigel Godrich, Mauro Refosco, Joey Waronker, and Flea. They came together by playing in support of Thom's Grammy nominated album The Eraser. The got a big buzz from those shows and discovered loads of energy from transforming the music from electronic to live, so they carried on for a few days in the studio and decided to make it a loose, on-going thing… since everyone in the band has a day job as well. The standard edition 2xLP plays at 45rpm and includes a MP3 download of the entire album.

When supergroups form from different bands that are quite big in their own right (Radiohead and Red Hot Chili Peppers) it usually brings fans of both groups together and listen to a collaberation that is suppose to show the sounds of those two artists and mix them together to sound great. Despite the fact that I do think this record is great, you most certainly do not get the feeling that Flea had a big influence on this record.
First off, this record is incredibly Electronic based and is packed with tons of Synthesizers that overshadow any real instrumentation. Long story short, this album comes off as "typical Thom Yorke" which means that there is more of a Radiohead's King Of Limbs sound to the album than anything else. I do think this album is a more improved version of The King Of Limbs, so if you liked that record, you will like this record.
I think this album is for more Radiohead fans than Red Hot Chili Pepper fans, it just depends on what you think if Electronic music.

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.

So, Thom wants to have his main focus be electronic music nowadays. That's fine, I have no problem with that.

The issue is that his electronics (I guess Nigel's too, since he's engineer here) have been somewhat undeveloped and sparse. This was less noticeable when he was working with a whole band, simply incorporating electronic elements into what broadly remained alternative rock music. Since The Eraser though, it is apparent that he has become less interested in that sort of thing and likewise, with the electronics becoming more prevalent it is easier to spot the flaws. Most of my issues with The Eraser, and The King of Limbs, was with the percussion. It sounded thin, weak, not well layered or detailed. Amok is a bit of a departure from this. There's tracks like Default, with its filtered sliding noises and IDM-esque samples bouncing back and forth between stereo channels. There's tracks like Judge, Jury and Executioner (album's highlight IMO) that starts out with a reverberated loop that's a bit far off accompanied by humming. It's an improvement in my opinion. Melodically and lyrically, the album is fine. Not amazing but catchy enough most of the time. Flea's bass playing is great.

I read that back when The King of Limbs was made that the "rhythm was the key". Well, that was accomplished better here and the percussion is certainly what stands out the most throughout the album.

Thom's musical endeavors in electronic music, be them solo, with Radiohead or with Atoms for Peace still have a ways to go, but this is a step in the right direction. Given some more time to accrue experience with this sort of style and he could very well stack up with the likes of Aphex Twin or Boards of Canada someday.

The vocals definatly have the sound of Radiohead with Thom Yorke but the instrumentation is very electronica. I enjoyed the ethereal quality of this super-group. Not a top 10 album but worth a few bucks.

Amok is a record not about stories and narrative. It's not a record about capturing that magical spark created by five musicians playing together in the studio. It's not even a concept record about a dystopian society. No, Amok is a record about feel. It's a record about movement and flow. If you haven't been under a rock for the last 13 years then you'll know that Thom Yorke and Nigel Godrich have been experimenting with this sort of music for sometime now. Radiohead's Kid A was the door swinging open in the beat lab and Thom and Nigel screaming "It's alive! It's alive!!" From that moment on electronic music has been an integral part of Radiohead's(Thom Yorke's) DNA. Thom Yorke hasn't made it a secret that he loves dance music as well, dj'ing at clubs and rubbing elbows with the likes of Four Tet, Flying Lotus, and Modeselektor. He's even spent entire videos dancing like a replicant getting electrocuted. The man likes to shake his odd groove thing.

Beneath all the hype -the amazing group of musicians(Yorke, Godrich, Flea, Waronker, Refosco), the shadow of Radiohead lingering over the proceedings, and Yorke and his freaky deeky dancing- this is an amazing album of dark, electro beauty. It's the musical equivalent of John Henry and the steam-powered hammer not in a race to the bitter end, but actually working together to get it done. Man(or men) and machine coming together to create something mysterious and engaging. I don't liken this to a Radiohead side project as so many have. This is Thom Yorke and Nigel Godrich drinking coffee all through the night cutting and pasting, assembling like a couple mad scientists. I see this more as a Miles Davis/Teo Macero-spirited affair.

Saw AFP do two tracks from this live on TV and raced to order a copy of the album.

So I was disappointed to find that not one of the tracks on the album had the punch and dynamic force of the live performances I'd seen.

The album is okay, the songs professionally executed, and it's a pleasure to listen to anything with an analog synth on it even if they don't do anything particularly interesting with it.

But, the iconic bass work that made the live performance so interesting is mixed so far back it is hard for me to make out over the aforementioned synth.

I'm playing it more than I played Bowie's long-awaited bundle of Meh, and enjoying it way more too, it is just so much less than I saw a few days ago (and that was in mono too).

Maybe there'll be a live album of this material. I'd buy that in the hope of hearing AFP at their best.
