The fact that this came out as a pay-what-you-want album on their site is insane.

Favorite tracks: 15 step, bodysnatchers, reckoner, jigsaw falling into place

At a time when studio production and overdubbing has the ability to make sound bigger than it actually is, the magic of creating a full and immersive sound that seems greater than the sum of it's parts seems to be something that is taken for granted.

But, to watch Radiohead play this album live (For example, on their live from the basement video) is pretty amazing. The full and encompassing amount of sound produced by just these 5 guys and their instruments is pretty incredible..

This is an intensely personal album to me for reasons I won't go into here. This has been a go-to album when struggling with personal issues. I have probably heard it 50 times but went back to revisit it just now and still notice things that I didn't before.

Radiohead playing in different time signatures (15 steps) and still making it sound good is like Aaron Rodgers escaping the pocket and instead of getting sacked, throwing a touchdown. Bodysnatchers is a total "bends" song and the part between the first half grungy part and the final guitar wild part there is a part where the guitars lie in the mix for a 30 second window that reminds me of Coldplay at their *very* best - yet somehow half a minute of Nigel mixing seems to eclipse their entire discography as Thom beckons "this is the 21st century"

Weird fishes has to be one of the greatest songs ever. Great music great lyrics, great execution. No fancy production doesn't need it, Johnny's guitars and Thom's vocals are at their all time best. A lot of this record is mixed very up front without much fancy stuff, and it's not needed, just great instrumentation and strings around this whole things. The rhythm sections on these songs is also fantastic.

Oh, and also I forgot "Reckoner" is on this thing. Another candidate for "Best Radiohead Song" - although at this point there are so many that it's hard to keep track of. And why bother, just grab one of their many classic tunes and lose yourself in it.

I am 100% guilty of crooning over Radiohead. To me - someone who totally buys into their sound - they have certain albums that are just seem above reproach. When listening I feel like it's something *different* than listening to other music. I'm on a higher plane of existence. I'm in rainbows.

It is Radiohead at their most creative, and as a result, it is Radiohead at their best. They experiment, but simultaneously they take their experience from previous albums and stick to what made them successful, resulting in the best music Radiohead has put out. Thom Yorke gets personal and vulnerable. Rather than sing about a political agenda, he sings about personal subjects that I personally find more relatable than anything else he's ever written.

OK Computer or Kid A are great, but this album is an amazing ride from start to finish. Maybe it's more of a personal choice, but this is the ultimate Radiohead album.

PS: Jigsaw Falling into Place makes me lose it every time! 2nd favorite song of all time probably.

The most danceable album that Radiohead produced, with more upbeat songs throughout the album.

I consider myself to be a big Radiohead fan, but it took me a while to reach that stage. I'd heard the Bends a few times, and liked it quite a bit, although I didn't really pay enough attention. I liked OK Computer the first time I heard it, but some of it was a bit weird for me, and I just couldn't understand Kid A. Then I heard In Rainbows, and I loved it right from the start. Reckoner is my favourite song of all time, and Videotape, Jigsaw, Weird Fishes and Nude are all up there as well. I've since gone over the entire Radiohead discography a few times, and I love pretty much everything they've done, but that love started with In Rainbows.
Top Tracks: Reckoner, Videotape, Weird Fishes, Jigsaw, Nude
Worst Tracks: I could do without House of Cards, tbh. I still think it's a good song, but whenever it plays, I kind of wish I could skip to Jigsaw.
