In Rainbows-Radiohead


Recommended Posts

There was a lot of hype around this album for mainly two reasons.

First one being this is their first album without being on EMI and second one being that you could buy it online for any price you chose to pay.

It's hard to pinpoint how this album sounds to their previous ones, there are hints of Kid A and hints of OK Computer, but nothing like The Bends or Pablo Honey. It is not guitar ordinated by any means(like The Bends is). It's not quite as electronic based as Kid A is though. Besides one track it's very mellow and has a moody laid back feeling to it(think Tom Waits' Closing Time gone electric). It's sparsely produced which makes it very different from Ok Computer and gives it a warmer feeling to it. The only complaint I have is that Thom's voice sounds a little too forced on some tracks and too "raw".

Overall one of their best albums and highly recommended for any Radiohead fan, whether new or old.
