Radiohead - Hail to the Thief

Radiohead - Hail to the Thief 2003

Hail to the Thief is the sixth studio album by English alternative rock band Radiohead, released in June 2003. After two Radiohead albums that featured heavily processed vocals, less guitar, and strong influence from experimental electronica and jazz, Hail to the Thief was seen as a slight return to the band's older alternative rock influences, drawing its sound from every era of the band's existence. Recorded relatively quickly in Los Angeles, the album was described by band members as an attempt to find a more "swaggering" sound and a relaxed recording process, in contrast to their tense sessions for Kid A and Amnesiac several years earlier.

At nearly an hour in length, Hail to the Thief is the band's longest album, although many of its songs are within the three minute range, shorter than the band's average. Thom Yorke said he was inspired by Beatles songs of that length. Yorke said his songwriting on the album had been much affected by current events, but he denied having a strictly political intent. It debuted at number one in the United Kingdom and at number three in the United States, where it sold a greater number of copies in its first week than any of Radiohead album to date. Hail to the Thief largely received positive reviews, and the singles taken from it were "There There", "Go to Sleep" and "2 + 2 = 5".by wikipedia
