Atoms For Peace is a recently formed supergroup which consists of Thom York (Radiohead frontman), Red Hot Chili Peppers bass player Flea, superstar Radiohead producer Nigel Godrich, Joey Waronker of Beck & R.E.M, and Brazilian percussionist Mauro Refosco.

Thoughts on the Atoms For Peace album after a few listens through:
1. Great album to listen strait through, but no individual songs really really stand out
2. Sounds just like a Radiohead album
3. The production (Nigel Godrich, radiohead’s producer) is amazing & how he gets those crispy hats to go with the low bass percussion is a work of magic. Seriously one of the best in the game
4. Flea really getsdrown out on a lot of the tracks & you really have to have decent headphones / speakers to admire his work
5. That being said more of a synth bass is used on a lot of the tracks (ala radiohead) rather than Flea’s signature slap bass. Me disappoint
6. The percussion really is amazing & a focal point
7. Super repetitive, but makes the little things stand out / matter that much more
8. Thom’s vocals are lovely as ever
9. Pretty damn good (4 or 4.5/5) – I rate full albums hard – I’ll probably give it a lot of air time this next year but probably won’t come back to it 10 years from now
