The Big Mates discuss witches' fingers, woke biscuits, spooky ghosts, and Hail to the Thief by Radiohead.

Adam, Steve, and Lucas continue their deep dive into the bands sixth album, digging further into their track-by-track analysis, comparing it to other Radiohead albums, music that was around at the time, and weighing it up against their expectations of the band.

What will they make of the album? Are Radiohead rated on a different scale to other artists? Is Saving Private Ryan Jaws? Find out on this episode of What Is Music?

Our next episode is out on Monday October 24th and will conclude the deep-dive into Hail to the Thief.
