Vinyl Therapy: Radiohead "King Of Limbs" (2011)

Extremely adept at reaching all levels of their fan spectrum (from the casual fan to the rabid completist)  Radiohead have once again presented their newest album in several formats.  They've offered everything from quick and easy digital downloads of "King Of Limbs" to traditional CD packaging to this... The super-deluxe "Newspaper Edition" of the album.  Radiohead have (once again) seen fit to present several versions of a release so that each listener can choose the level at which they wish to engage with the recorded material.  They've taken the best parts of the 1970s and '80s "deluxe double album" model with a nod to the digital immediacy and versatility that a music fan in 2011 demands.
