New Radiohead album leaked onto the Internet. I'm worried by this statement:

Early listens to "Hail to the Thief" reveal it to be just as experimental as "Kid A" and "Amnesiac," which debuted at No. 1 and No. 2, respectively, on The Billboard 200. The band continues to dabble in electronic music on such tracks as "Backdrifts" and "The Gloaming," but veers back slightly to the more guitar-centric sound of its earlier work on such cuts as opener "2+2=5" and "There There."

So is it going to be more like Kid A, whose appeal still eludes me to some considerable extent, or Amnesiac, which I got into more because 1) I'd heard the previous album so this one wasn't as big a surprise and 2) it was a better album anyway? Time will tell. Might see if I can download a few tracks...
