Hail to the Thief

Hail to the Thief is Radiohead's sixth studio album, released on June 9, 2003 in the UK and June 10 in North America. After two albums of mainly electronic music, with heavily processed vocals and few guitars, the band moves at least some of the way back towards their earlier guitar rock style on Hail to the Thief.

Critical reaction was mixed but tended towards the positive: Neil McCormick, writing in the Daily Telegraph, called it "Radiohead firing on all cylinders, a major work by major artists at the height of their powers", but the NME's James Oldham saw it as "a good rather than great record" and Alexis Petridis of The Guardian called it "neither startlingly different and fresh nor packed with the sort of anthemic songs that once made them the world's biggest band".
