Thom Yorke's stab at a solo record will probably appeal to Radiohead fans, but those that don't like his band shouldn't quickly dismiss Yorke's album: it lacks the (faux?)-grandiosity that turns some away from Radiohead records. "The Eraser" is surprisingly modest, a collection of bare electronica pieces about environment and coldness and Dr. David Kelly. "And It Rained All Night" could rake in converts, while those less-skeptical folks should be able to make an ecstastic forty-one minutes out of pieces like the darkly slinking "Black Swan" ("Cause this is f____d up/F____d up") or the one about Dr. David Kelly ("Harrowdown Hill"). There isn't enough to warrant four stars, but there's more than enough to defend this against those angry people ready to leap upon the record as mere trite Radiohead-lite.
