This Rock is Art Rock

In Rainbows, Radiohead's seventh studio album released as a pay-what-you-want download in 2007 (a first for a major music act), ten years after the release of OK Computer. The album shares in many of the elements found in OK Computer, but with brighter and more orchestral themes. Critics met In Rainbows with universal positivity: praising Radiohead for what many consider to be their most accessible though intimate work.

Double Dip Monday

I've missed two Music Mondays in the Finals Week rush! Forgive me, nonexistent followers! In light of this unrecognized grievance, I present a Double Feature: Radiohead.

Great alternative rock and great experimental rock and great everything in between and beyond. Often the greatest. Radiohead and their albums have earned praise and nominations and awards from all manner of websites, magazines, organizations, and music-liking people throughout their careers. One of the most critically and commercially successful bands of the past few decades, Radiohead and its members, Thom Yorke, Jonny Greenwood, Colin Greenwood, Ed O'Brien, and Phil Selway, have given us a great gift by means of words and sounds and feelings. In fact many great gifts.

Two of these gifts are OK Computer and In Rainbows.

Thanks, Stefan.
