  1. 8.3 |   A.V. Club

    The best of these remixes excite and innovate in ways their counterparts didn’t

  2. 8.0 |   Drowned In Sound

    It grows, fades and breathes like an album should, it provides enough singles to make it the envy of many a record, and it also demonstrates what a perfect stem the original TKOL was

  3. 8.0 |   Clash

    These tracks are both club and headphone worthy, insular and expansive, ephemeral and dense, lush and skeletal

  4. 8.0 |   Mojo

    This collection showcases work by 19 of the band's favourite electronic minds. Print edition only

  5. 7.5 |   The Quietus

    The sound of Radiohead engaging with a creative underground they've both inspired and draw a great deal of inspiration from

  6. 7.0 |   BBC

    Its most successful examples retain some Radiohead DNA, but reconstituted into a new form. That’s fitting testament to a band that remains eager to avoid repeating themselves.

  7. 7.0 |   Slant Magazine

    Does a better job at delivering Radiohead's snowy ennui than its forebearer, suggesting that the band should have collaborated with these electronic purveryors from the get-go and skipped The King of Limbs altogether.

  8. 7.0 |   music OMH

    The album's cold soul does not lend itself to a carefree, fun-loving dance floor, and as such, the mutations herein are tentative, fragile things built on the backs of their producers

  9. 7.0 |   The Line Of Best Fit

    This remix project turns the album’s weaknesses into a strength by providing plentiful building blocks for the artists on remixing duties

  10. 7.0 |   Consequence Of Sound

    It expands substantially on the tangeted, capricious nature of the record that many complained about to begin with, and ultimately serves as a very compelling companion to The King of Limbs

  11. 7.0 |   Daily Telegraph

    These are darker, sexier, nocturnal interpretations that synth fans will love and guitar-favouring Radiohead fans should probably give a miss

  12. 6.0 |   Q

    As long as you're up for more mood and texture experiments there's plenty of interest. Print edition only

  13. 6.0 |   Pitchfork

    Too many of these 19 artists seem content to settle for bland beauty, or simply apply their usual sonic tricks without pushing themselves in the slightest

  14. 6.0 |   Uncut

    Radiohead appear to have commissioned a remix record that sounds, in tone and mood at least, rather a lot like Radiohead. Print edition only

  15. 6.0 |   The Digital Fix

    Diverting and interesting rather than captivating. A curiosity only. None supplant the originals but there’s no filler here either
    Read Review

  16. 5.0 |   PopMatters

    Too often TKOL RMX 1234567 feels as calculated and mechanical as its soulless title
    Read Review

  17. 4.0 |   The Independent

    Most [tracks] are dully baffling
    Read Review

  18. 4.0 |   The Guardian

    This set intensifies the dilemma of its parent album: ostensibly unconventional music that feels all too familiar
