Canadian Press, June 4

A decade into becoming one of rock's more enigmatic bands since their first album Pablo Honey, Radiohead's outlook on the world has not budged. "It's fears of the future based upon fears of the present," O'Brien says of the meaning behind the title Hail to the Thief, set to release June 10.

Led by singer-songwriter Thom Yorke, Radiohead have garnered a reputation for being outspoken on global affairs and mistrustful of large corporations. They are informally boycotting venues owned by American entertainment company Clear Channel Worldwide, which has been accused of attempting to monopolize the music market.

The last time I heard anything good with the term Radiohead was the Talking Heads song of the same name (albeit the two-worded kind). True Stories was indeed a fab LP.

I love Radiohead! I must admit though that it's taken me a while to get into this newest album. While somewhat depressing tends to be the norm this album seems both depressing and mellow. But it's definately starting to grow on me.

I did get tickets for the upcoming Toronto show. All Hail to Me for getting through before they sold out!
