Radiohead is one of the bands I've always wanted to love but still haven't quite embraced to their fullest. Their originality, musicality, expressiveness, talent, the undeniable influence on so many others; it's all there. I don't really understand why I haven't connected more strongly with this band. Kind of a "perfect match on paper but for some reason, no chemistry" story for me. Giving 5 stars to show the respect they deserve.

Listening conditions - home theatre, without distraction. Albums First Rodeo? - No way Stand out tracks 15 Step - wonderful guitar, sick drum and bass style beat - that time signature!!!!! Bodysnatchers - classic Radiohead track. Like something from the early era. Turn it up! All I Need - moody electro and unsettling lyrics carry this track to it’s perfect crescendo. Jigsaw Falling Into Place - I was close to awarding a stand out to the track before, House of Cards for its attempt at a striped back track. Then JFIP hits with the perfect balance of simplicity and production. One of the best tracks outside of the powerhouse duo up front. Videotape - Play is out boys, play us out No misses to note what a phenomenal album.

My first experience with Radiohead. I want to hear more, but I think I did them. This album wasn't distinctive enough to really capture my attention the whole time, but the music was good. I'll be back for more

Amazing. A fucking masterpiece of worldclass. The motifs they use in their songs can be described as intriguing, intense and insidious. They perfectly combine dark tones with dark lyrics in their more oppressive songs. They know when to rattle you with some upbeat melodies with harsh vocals and accompanying instruments. I have had a deep respect for Radiohead for experimenting, but damn I don't think I've ever heard this album before.

Con Radiohead tengo una relación bastante cordial, jaja, porque me gustan los discos que he escuchado, aunque no me clavo con ellos. Son pocas ocasiones en las que me dan muchas ganas de escucharlos y bueno, ahora tras reescuchar el In Rainbows con intención de evaluarlo, quiero decir que es un disco sin skips para mí. Hay muchas cosa acá, mezclas, con cuerdas, percusiones, que su rock, que sus sonidos electrónicos, etc. Me gusta todo, desde lo más "rockero", como "Bodysnatchers" o "Jigsaw Falling Into Pieces", hasta lo que son casi baladas, como "Nude" o "Videotape" con su pianito. "Weird Fishes / Arpeggi" me gusta mucho también. Un sonido que pues yo digo que sí ha dejado huella para muchas bandas. También muy padre eso de haberlo lanzado en línea y que pagaras lo que gustaras por él. 9.5/10

Nunca entendí el mame por Radiohead, solo escuchaba algunas canciones (incluida Creep porque basic). De este álbum conocía solo “House of cards” que sí me gustaba bien. La verdad debo admitir que este disco me pareció bastante ok, a mi lista de canciones de Radiohead que aguanto ahora agrego “Bodysnatchers” y “Reckoner”. Aunque no sé bien cómo evaluarlos, voy a ser benévola porque cuando vi que tocaba un disco de ellos sentí mucha hueva pero escucharlos fue una bonita sorpresa.

I remember what a big deal this one was. I think they sold it online and anyone could pay whatever amount they wanted to pay for it. Everyone lost their shit over it too, but I never really thought it was that great. I still don't. OK Computer is the quintessential Radiohead album as far as I'm concerned. This is fine, and Reckoner and Jigsaw Falling into Place are great. And I know they have a huge following and they're geniuses at melding instruments with tech music, but it's still a "meh" for me.

This album would be notable alone for the manner in which it was released. However, it also happens to be one of Radiohead's best and by extension, one of the best albums period. Radiohead are masters of crafting songs that ebb and flow in the most arresting ways. In Rainbows never feels rushed. It takes its time to simmer to properly develop its songs and itself as a whole. Radiohead is one of those bands where every single member is absolutely indispensable and contributes greatly to everything they do as a whole.

7th Radiohead album. It was self-released on 10 October 2007 as a pay-what-you-want download, later also physically released. The pay-what-you-want release, the first for a major act, made headlines internationally and sparked debate about implications for the music industry; some praised Radiohead for challenging old models and finding new ways to connect with fans, while others felt it set a dangerous precedent at the expense of less successful artists. I like the sound of this album! Will definitely buy a vinyl!

Un disco más de la la lista de los que debí haber escuchado completo hace mucho tiempo. Recuerdo haber bajado este disco completo alguna vez, pero quizá no lo escuché, o no estaba listo para escucharlo. Mi canción favorita es Nude, desde la primera vez que la escuché. Me parece una canción de las más distintivas de Radiohead, el tono melancólico, la letra con un ligero tono político, y la forma en la que se combinan el Theremin y la voz de Thom Yorke. Quizá quitaría un par de canciones, pero en general me parece un gran disco.

4.5 | Creo que lo escuche 4 veces... fue gracioso, lo recordaba bastante amablemente como un muy buen disco, lo escuché y me dejó un poco sin emoción y algo decepcionado a lo que lo recordaba pero al irlo volviendo a escuchar lo fui reexplorando y recordando por qué se me hace un excelente disco. Creo que es un disco que a final de cuentas puede ser entre los discos más viscerales, consistentes y explosivos de Radiohead, diez años después de lo que pudiera ser su mejor disco de verdad que sí termina probando que todavía tenían suficientes cosas que decir (al menos en ese entonces, hoy en día no estoy tan seguro). Extraño que de hecho muchas de las canciones pueden sonar algo similares al disco Hail to the Thief, que no me gusta; pero creo que en este disco es como si hubieran tomado los sonidos y estilos que en ese momento eran una experimentación o una idea vaga y aquí se perfeccionan. La banda usa los sonidos y la energía y llega a estos picos en las canciones, unos puntos de ebullición que ayudan a que todo el disco se sienta de hecho bastante fluido. Diez canciones, ninguna que se sienta relleno y sigue siendo un album emocional como todos los de Radiohead pero ahora con un poco de más matiz. Canciones como Nude pueden ser sutiles pero expresan a la perfección lo que buscan y si me apuran se pueden llevar de corbata a ratos a Pablo Honey (que la verdad sea dicha, no es malo, pero si muy sobrevalorado en mi opinión) . Muy agradable volver a escuchar y casi inmediatamente redescubrir este disco. Hay una buena cantidad de música de Radiohead y discos que no me llenan. Pero también hay algunos que son muy muy brillantes. Este está entre ese grupito de brillantes. No le daría las 5 estrellas nada más porque creo que a pesar de todo es un poco como para estar de humor para escucharlo.

I know this is a 5, so I'm attempting to review without recently listening to the album. The details are fuzzy, but when I think about In Rainbows I think relaxed. I think about their performance of the album from the basement more than the studio version. They seem like a real band - just the 5 (6?) middle aged dudes standing in a round, facing each other, listening to each other, jamming. It also sounds exactly like the studio album. Flawless but jammy. Thom sounds less uptight when he has a guitar strapped on instead of sitting in front of a MIDI controller and Pro Tools. Did the subject matter change as well? I can't think of a single track that has the classic Radiohead isolation-by-dehumanizing-corporate-technology vibe. The standout memory of In Rainbows is the end of the song (Nude?) where the vocals finish with that ascending major "ahhhh". It's so uncharacteristicly angelic and unironic. I picture Thom's cranky ass rising into the clouds, naked as a hairless cat, yellow-toothed smile, and a halo. A+

I'm not sure what to say that hasn't already been said. Personally, this was my introduction to Radiohead, as I was intrigued by the pay-what-you-want model they were offering. It's a gorgeous album with tight performances, especially on the layered "Videotape". Favorite tracks: "15 Step", "Weird Fishes/Arpeggi", "Videotape", "Jigsaw Falling Into Place"

PSA, right off the bat, friends: I would not recommend this LP to anyone struggling mightily with depression, most definitely including thoughts of suicide. The title, 'In Rainbows,' suggests a colorfully optimistic experience. But, it ain’t. One reviewer describes Radiohead as: ‘pre-eminent doomsayers with an evergreen grimness…’ and this particular LP as ‘not the kind of thing one would play at a pool party.’ I would, however, recommend this LP highly and, if possible, while high. If not, then we’re looking for some kind of mood alteration on the down side. This is not crystal meth Motorhead time. Alcohol, perhaps? Its tricky, being both a depressant and a stimulant. As long as you’re more of a happy, docile drunk, then a few drinks might also aim you in the right direction. Right, with that taken care of… This is an LP of endings. The ending of relationships, of hope, the end of life, the end of all created life. Lyricist and vocalist Thom Yorke- alternating between moments of sheer soaring to stumbling, weary whispers- is a tortured and tattered dude, possessed by a longing for love while never being able to find it, or hang onto it when it is. I hope his therapist is steering the guided introspection towards what Thom might be bringing into these dysfunctional relationships: What are you attracting, Thom, by your past conditioning and habitual behaviors exacerbated by presumptuous misperceptions, all grounded in some childhood trauma that was left untreated? I mean, bless his heart: ‘I am all the days that you choose to ignore (‘Videotape’).’ Terrible self-esteem, this one. ‘Course, you’re also not going to get a lot of second dates with lines like this one, from ‘Bodysnatchers’: ‘I have no idea what you’re talking about. Your mouth moves only with someone’s hand up your ass.’ (Sounds like some apocryphal verse omitted from Bob Dylan’s relationship-gone-terribly-wrong-song, 'Idiot Wind.') Track four, ‘Weird Fishes,’ just speaks volumes: ‘Turn me on to phantoms. I’ll follow to the edge of the earth and fall off. Yeah, everybody leaves if they get the chance. And this is my chance. I get eaten by the worms and weird fishes. Picked over by the worms and weird fishes. I’ll hit the bottom… and escape.’ Musically, of course, Radiohead is magnificent, as always. Wonderful sense of dynamics, with the songs taking time to develop and often building to a crescendo. Not a lot of rock bands are hip to this. There are some other prog rock characteristics, interesting time signatures popping up here and there, for example, but I wouldn’t really call it prog. It’s a far piece from ELP. Radiohead, in their own way, is loose and groovy, like the Stones in their heyday (not the sound, necessarily, but the feel), but also with a very post-modern edge and vibe, including techniques like scratching, along with generous amounts of wonderful, dissonant synth and guitar shit (that Sonic Youthy sound is a sure way to this listener’s heart); or ‘Videotape’s final moments of that surprisingly splendid bit of percussion oddity. (As an aside, what rock band do you know that can insert a song like ‘Nude’ into an LP, and it works?) Echos on the volcals are employed with just the right amount of restraint, only enhancing the experience and understanding of Thom’s natural voice, and giving the whole thing an ethereal quality. I know that’s an overused adjective, but I can’t think of a better one. ‘Weird Fishes,’ for example, sounds underwatery! -only to then suddenly surface with a funky-ass drone (I’ve never seen those two paired together either) concluding the last two minutes. 'In Rainbows' is chocked full of these kinds of moments, sometimes the golden nugget being the entire song: ‘Faust Arp’ sounds like ‘Eleanor Rigby’ for Generation X. Perhaps following all this self-loathing and bitter rejection from others, and lord knows what other psychic damage done to this poor chap, there might still be hope, even while temporarily remaining disoriented: ‘You’ve got a light. You can feel it on your back.’ Prevenient grace? And then, finally, ‘Videotape’ in its entirety: ‘When I’m at the pearly gates this’ll be on my videotape. Mephistopheles is just beneath and he’s reaching up to grab me. This is one for the good days. And I have it all here: In red, blue, green. You are my center when I spin away out of control on videotape. This is my way of saying goodbye. ‘Cause I can’t do it face to face. I’m talking to you before. No matter what happens now you shouldn’t be afraid. Because I know today has been the most perfect day I’ve ever seen.’ Suicide note? Or, perhaps a more positive surrender, one born not from silent, bitter resignation or simmering anger, or despair, but a letting go of a preoccupation with getting so as to be able to better receive what is being given instead. In…THE... Rainbow.

I adore the experimental nature of Radioheads earlier albums Kid A and Amnesiac, but their sound was quite a departure from Radiohead's more rock oriented music. Hail to the Thief - In Rainbows predecessor - was a mixture of both styles, but didn't manage to hold my attention throughout its runtime and probably contained too much filler material. And then came In Rainbows. This is a return to form for the band. Its sound is less gloomy, at times very laid-back, even relaxed!!! There is not one bad song on this album. Standouts: 15 Step, Weird Fishes/Arpeggi, Bodysnatchers, Reckoner. I love it. 5/5

It’s rare for a band to have an album that’s a genre defining masterpiece that’s easily the best album of the year it was released. Radiohead has three albums that fit that category and 3 or 4 more that come pretty damn close to hitting that mark. In Rainbows is one of those masterpieces. It’s amazing how this album is one of their most accessible and “pop rock” friendly while also not losing any of the weirdness, experimentation, and anxiety-inducing darkness that defined their early-00’s work. This album is so good that it’s almost become a footnote that it also completely changed the game on how we buy music. Also, the bonus disc is incredible too.

its just such an accomplished album. they started the swerve away from being a guitar band with the kid amnesiac duo and then came a bit more back to the guitar band thing for Hail to the thief but they got the balance just right with this one. fundamentally a guitar band but with all the electronic enhancement. Arty music that doesn't sacrifice listenability in the name of art and the production of this album is phenomenal, every element is crisp and distinguishable without it detracting from the song as a whole. best listened to with headphones, as are most radiohead albums. at the time of writing this is my favourite radiohead album. but then that probably changes all the time.

I've been sleeping on this album. I never gave the full album its due attention. I was grabbed immediately by Reckoner, which I love and thought the songs before it were only OK, but all 6 songs that preceed Reckoner are each amazing in their own right. In Rainbows is one of Radiohead's finest albums right there with The Bends, OK Computer and Kid A. 4.75 🌟

I've not listened to RadioHead much over the years, except what I heard on indie radio or on compilations I picked up. I assumed that this late-vintage album was chosen because of it's much discussed pay-what-you-can distribution model and maybe not the music. Musically it stood the first test: I listened to it while getting groceries and each song caught my attention. They mix up the styles, bringing in electronics, distorted guitars, strings or hand-claps as needed, resulting in a sound that stays fresh song after song. I was debating a 4 or 5, but it sounded better on the third listen so…

It was refreshing to hear an album not bound by the tropes of popular music, but instead a showcase of the creative output a talented band could have with no strings attached to their work. Production value was top notch, along with the song structures. The only gripe I have with this is Thom’s voice, particularly the falsetto singing, can get a little annoying if it’s every song, but I can look past that to the songs in general and they are all terrific. 5/5

This is my favorite album of all time. Hands down. In a time when the music industry was constantly scrambling over digital music piracy and how to get a handle on things, Radiohead self-released an album on their website with a pay-what-you-want format. The price tag basically said "free". It was huge, considering this isn't some up-and-coming indie band. This is Radiohead, for god's sake. And it was a damn good album. In Rainbows gives you two tracks to set the tone: 15 Step to move through smooth syncopated beats while the rest of the band rides a sonic wave of grooves. Then, blasting onto the scene is Bodysnatchers, a fast-paced distortion-filled barn-burner that is worth the price of admission alone. But it plays a bigger part in the tracklist of In Rainbows as we move from this crazy beast of a song to the rest of the album. From here, the album begins to slow down and appreciate it's own beauty, showcasing the sonic depth and maturity of Radiohead's songwriting and production. Everything sounds lush and purposeful. Not a second is wasted on this runtime. I tend to lump the middle of this album together mentally as Nude through to House of Cards all have a similar atmosphere. Normally I would consider this a bad thing, but each song is still able to deliver a distinct personality that it doesn't feel too same-y. Consistency without boredom. This brings us into the last two tracks, where things start to pick up again. Jigsaw Falling Into Place is an energetic song that that builds spectacularly. This is tied for my favorite song on the album with Weird Fishes/Arpeggi, which is a beautifully sweeping track in it's own right. Our closing song is Videotape, which is a solemn song that utilizes the odd timing and loops to disorient the listener. It's an incredibly powerful end to an album that still manages to wow me to this day. While most people did not bother to pay for the download, Radiohead still made excellent money off of this album. It was proof that people will still want to buy music if the product is worth it's salt (and if you have enough dedicated fans). When the album hit retail shelves, it debuted at #1 on the UK albums chart. Truly, In Rainbows is a testament to excellent craftsmanship and defying industry standards. What a record.

Another great album from Radio and the Heads! Much brighter than the previous (I think this album is notoriously their most accessible and least depressing), lots of tracks on here that I enjoyed. At this point, when I see Radiohead pop up, I know I’m in for a smooth ride. We’ve had two in about a month, and I can’t complain. Favorite tracks: 15 Step, All I Need, Jigsaw Falling into Place, Reckoner. Album art: Another iconic picture, I see this one a lot. Really love the multicolored text, and I’ve barely even looked through to the explosion behind it, but this one is really fun to look at. 4/5

wow this album flew by. I loved the first song 15 Step but that is because it's the song from Twilight that isn't on the soundtrack so that was a nice surprise. I really enjoyed this album, it played all the way through without me skipping anything so that is a plus. It felt very easy to listen to but I still liked some of the more creative beats in many of the songs. Radiohead is one of those bands that I had heard bits and pieces of but not the albums so I'm glad we are getting a few of them on this list. Great album cover too.

Chido, aunque algunas canciones algo underwhelming, supongo que ese era el punto. En este disco, y como en todo radiohead creo, lo que más me gustó fueron las percusiones, tienen un toque muy energetico, son muy ostentosas, de ahíq ue mis canciones fav fueron: 15 step (esta sí se queda en una de mis playlists), Reckoner y Jigsaw Falling into Place. Mood: Frito y triste.

...the one where a hugely popular experimental band finally free of their record deal releases their first independent album by letting fans pay what they want then leads it off with a song in 5/4 time... Big thumbs-up here. :) In Rainbows is probably not the easiest intro to Radiohead (probably the best way to try to ease into the band is to go chronologically (but skip their debut Pablo Honey)) but if you want an accessible-ish great start, go with "All I Need" which is as normal as it gets here, and is still a great song. But Radiohead is not a singles band, meaning it's impossible to "get" or (for me) truly enjoy the band by listening to one song - in many ways they harken back to earlier days by truly being an "album band" - you need to digest this in its entirety to get the full breadth and scope. A song like "House Of Cards" is gorgeous in its layered melodies but it alone doesn't touch upon the organized chaos that the band brings so well in another track like "Bodysnatchers." All in all though, one of my favourite collections from the band and nearly as good as it gets - unlike some of their bigger albums (looking at you OK Computer) this one doesn't peter off at the end and stays strong through the final song "Videotape." Like most of their albums, this one also truly gets better upon repeated listens. Also a perfectly-digestible 43 minutes long (just because CDs ushered in an era where you could jam 72 minutes into an album didn't mean you should...). 8/10 4 stars

Back when I collected these stats this was my all-time most listened to album. Needless to say I loved it. Listening to it now… I don’t know… something is missing. I know, hardly subjective. But this album can’t be subjective. It is all predicated on hitting that emotional spot, like optimistic depression (to me). And now it doesn’t hit it. It sounds hollow. I don’t know. I’ll listen again later, maybe my mood was off.

Jotenkin tämä levy on jäänyt harmittavan vähälle kuuntelulle aiemmin. En erityisemmin innostunut Radioheadin levyistä OK Computerin jälkeen, kenties koska taiteellisilla elementeillä kikkaillut rockyhtye oli muutunut rockelementeillä kikkailevaksi taideyhtyeeksi. Tämä levy tavallaan jatkaa samaa kaavaa, mutta huomattavasti vähemmän häiritsevästi kuin esim. Amnesiacilla ja Hail to the Thiefillä. Mukaan on tuotu myös enemmän elektronisia soundeja, jotka toimii yllättävän hyvin. Varsinkin levyn alkupuoli (15 Step, Bodysnatchers, Weird Fishes/Arpeggi) on aivan huikeata tykitystä ja ihmettelinkin kuunnellessa että miten en ollut aiemmin syttynyt tähän juurikaan. Alun jälkeen taso (tai ehkä ennemminkin tunnelma) ehkä vähän laskee, vaikkei yksikään kappaleista ole sinänsä erityisen heikko. Jos Radioheadin kolme ekaa levyä on 5*-tasoa niin ehkä tämä ei ihan samaan yllä. Vahva nelonen kuitenkin!

Aiemmin tullut kuunneltua Radioheadilta lähinnä OK Computeria ja sitten jotain satunnaisia biisejä. Tämä oli ehkä vähän suoraviivaisempaa ja menevämpää kuin tuo OK Computer. Levy piti kuunnella läpi kolmeen kertaan, kun välillä jäi niin kaiken muun touhuilun taustalle. Piti varmistaa vielä kerran että oliko tämä oikeasti hyvä ja kyllähän se oli, tykkäsin. Erityisesti jäi mieleen Weird Fishes.

I had this friend who was just ... well, he was a good guy but he was pretentious AF. Just really into the "you couldn't possibly fathom this" side of art. He was also the biggest Radiohead fan I've ever met. Consequently, I've never had much interest in exploring Radiohead's catalogue. But, if this project has taught me anything, it's to be open-minded so I approached this album with a clean slate. I'm glad I did. It was not nearly as bad as I imagined it would be. In fact, much of it was exceptional. Was it a bit up its own butt? Assuredly. But the production was stellar and the songs were fun for the most part. Great background music for a morning of "git 'er done."

Disc curiós en la discografia de Radiohead. Va sortir de forma sorprenent amb la possibilitat de descàrrega gratuïta -anys abans de l'streaming, i sense la fanfàrria habitual. Malgrat això, aviat es va reconèixer la seva vàlua, i ja és un dels seus àlbums més apreciats. Mena de calaix de sastre, força irregular, però on els seus millors temes -'Nude', 'All I Want', 'House of Cards' i sobretot 'Reckoner'- es troben entre el millor que ha fet mai la banda

First Radiohead album to pop up on this list, and it's one from 2007 which is a bit of a surprise. Don't recognize any song titles but let's see how this goes, as I really have enjoyed their major albums that I do expect will show up as I work through this. This album *feels* like Radiohead, but it also seems watered down and definitely not as impactful as something like OK Computer, or Kid A. Mostly Thom Yorke wailing along to some lofi instrumentals. It's ok, but hard to grasp why this is on the list. If I'm rating this as a Radiohead album, probably a 3. On its own merits though it's at least a 4

I've always found that Radiohead albums take an extra bit of effort for me to get into them. But once I get over Thom Yorke's whiney voice I can say that the music is undoubtedly nuanced and complex and they certainly have musical chops. This album is very understated and nothing jumps out at you, but there are some very good keepers here, including Weird Fishes/Apeggi, Videotape, and Nude.

On the whole, In Rainbows is a spatial and casually meandering album that feels at once both intricately detailed and yet effortlessly crafted. From reading the related Wikipedia article, it sounds like creative process that brought the band to this end was chaotic, but I would never have guessed from listening. Overall, the mood of the album is very cohesive and gives off an air of genre-bending high-art rock. While the majority of the album flirts back and forth between the upper boundaries of melancholy and the lower boundaries of explosion, the one track that bursts through with non-stop energy is 'Bodysnatchers'. I love this track and would be interested to hear a mix of the album that builds up to this as the conclusion, since it feels like such a perfect culminating track.

I like Radiohead just fine. It's rare that I go out and seek out their records, and if I do, I'm going to pick up The Bends. Really most of their output, for me, personally, can be filed as background music for reading a book, and I don't feel like this record is any different. 3.5*

A very slow, lo-fi rock album leaning to electronic. Kind of nice to have in the background whilst doing work. Will need a few listens to get into, I think it will be one that grows on me. Best: Nude, Jigsaw Falling into Place Worst: All I Need, Faust Arp

I have very mixed feelings about Radiohead. Sometimes I'm really taken in by their music and the amazing production, other times I find them boring and pretentious. This album was very reflective of those feelings. 3 stars.

I knew a few Radiohead songs before ("Creep", etc.) and I was expecting something similar but this album is actually quite good. Thank God I found out that I'm capable of listening to Radiohead without any physical pain, maybe even with some kind of pleasure?

I don't have a lot to say about this record to be honest. I like Radiohead, but I don't love them, and I prefer some of their other albums to 'In Rainbows' which sounds like an album Coldplay would make if they were depressed.

15 steps and Bodysnatchers are really good tunes and a nice 1 2 punch. Once it hits Nude, it all slows way down to ballading grandeous sounds into All I Need, which are interesting but I don't think Thom sounds good on this record.

I really enjoyed this when it came out. The haunting vocals, the alternating dreary and then peppy music. You could actually really FEEL the sounds in your senses. Still a really good album, it just doesn’t have the same feel that it did a decade and a half ago.

I didn't closely follow Radiohead but I liked what I knew. I was a little surprised with how ambient this  was. I was anticipating more songs that were heavy  like Bodysnatchers is. Second listen was better since I knew what was coming.

Wow, quite the sonic experience! I just don't like depressing music. I want music to make me feel happy and joyous. I guess that sounds weird to most music and art and literature fans because depressing definitely sells and earns high praise. I am into pursuing joy. That is what will save the world, not depressing things. The sounds I heard while listening to this album were sometimes beautiful and certainly achieved a level of creativity that is unusual to hear in pop music. But make me happy and bring tears of joy to my eyes and I will sing your praises!

Needed more rainbows to bring any kind of vibrancy to this one. False advertising cover art. Started quite positively but then quickly descended into the same old dreary Radiohead for me. I just can't get on-board with Thom Yorke's vocals. Best track: Bodysnatchers

Aburrido. Pasan sus 43 minutos (afortunadamente es corto) sin darme cuenta de nada. No hay subidas, no hay bajadas, solo la voz quejumbrosa de este wey y algo de movimientos en las cajas de ritmos que más que atraer el oído fastidian. Si bien, el único gran aporte que le veo fue ese rollo de venderlo como 'pay what you want' en 2007, que para la época (e incluso ahora) es totalmente novedoso. No lo volvería a poner.

I went to a Radiohead headline set at Glastonbury in 2017. Lasted 5 songs before getting bored and wandering off to watch the flaming lips kill it on another stage. This album is even duller than that live set was. Its remarkable to use so many intricate musical techniques and still make a record as dull as this. In its defense the last two tracks are great and its worth sticking with through the dull bits. Anyway... I'm off to listen to some Flaming lips. 2/5

I love Radiohead when they are producing thoughtfully, but I feel like a lot of what gets onto the albums subsequent to their attaining fuck you money is just them messing around in the studio and might not necessarily end up in the final production if they had to think about the listener a bit more.

Endless. Thanks to every song being sung in falsetto (or at least, the upper range), it got tiresome pretty quick. Didn't hate but definitely not adding.

Avevo ascoltato 'The Bends' e lo avevo trovato più simile ai miei gusti di quanto pensassi. Ora mi aspettavo un sound più rock e non così pop. Pop non è la definizione giusta, piatto lo descrive meglio. 'Reckoner' è forse la migliore di un album veramente scialbo.

Hard pass! I know it’s Radiohead and all that. Indeed this why I bought it when it was released (on cd). Revisiting it again now I find it just as unlistenable. Were they completely stoned when they made this album? Were they just bored of everything? Is it possible they were both? Last track is passable, maybe that’s when then woke up. Sorry diehard Radioheads.
