A week and a half ago, you joined us for a live listening party to take part in the collective head rush surrounding Radiohead's new album, which was announced on short notice and dropped a day early. Now that the frenzy has died down, Bob and Robin take a moment to consider how The King Of Limbs stands up on a second, third and fourth listen.

Also on this week's All Songs Considered: a track from Animal Collective's Panda Bear, whose long-awaited fourth solo album comes out this spring. Plus: music from electronic pioneer Bruce Haack, indie folkers Alexi Murdoch and James Vincent McMorrow, and psych-rock duo The Dodos.

And, on a bittersweet note, Son Lux's album-in-a-month project comes clattering to the finish line this week. Hear the products of his last, precious few days in the studio.
