Anima represents an impressive evolution for Thom Yorke. Yes, this is still the immediately recognizable voice and talented songwriter of Radiohead but on this new record, Yorke the solo artist really spreads his wings.The sound of Anima is anxious and beautiful, soaring and ghostly. It’s more electronic-based than usual, with massive washes of sound, futuristic bleep bloops, and cinematic synths. It’s an epic response to 21st century turmoil and disruption and another strong argument for Yorke as one of our most brilliant contemporary artists. Surprising, cathartic, and shockingly beautiful.
