I’d been after this album for a while, and I got the CD for Christmas! I’ve been through it three times since boxing day and I’m entranced.
Here we have a super-group of Thom Yorke, Nigel Godrich, Mauro Refosco, Joey Waronker, and Flea. They’re named after a speech Eisenhower gave at the UN in 1953 (and the subsequent program).
9 tracks in 45 minutes, it’s equally ethereal and immediate, mature and playful, and entirely engaging (and well it should be, given the crew involved). It sounds like anything could happen at any moment, and it’s a beautiful thing.
