I love Radiohead. I’ll get that out of the way so you know. In Rainbows is an album that has 0 filler tracks. Each one was meant to be there. It’s fantastic, sounds nothing like Radiohead have ever recorded, yet is still recognisable as Radiohead from the first 5 seconds of mashed-up drums that introduce ’15 Step’. It’s lush yet sparse. The strings (and there are a lot of strings on this record) are beautiful – the arrangements really show off Jonny Greenwood’s classical leanings – and Thom’s voice is amazing, despite years of touring and knocking on 40’s door at this point. Every time I hear the songs, I pick up something new. I highly recommend you give it a listen on headphones at some point – it’s a real trip.
