With sumptuous, enveloping production, fluid guitars soaked in reverb, and Yorke's voice at its most soulful, In Rainbows is Radiohead's leanest, warmest and most accessible record in a decade.

Radiohead's sudden willingness to embrace their capacity for uncomplicated beauty might be In Rainbows' most distinguishing quality, and one of the primary reasons it's an improvement on Hail to the Thief.

In Rainbows will hopefully be remembered as Radiohead's most stimulating synthesis of accessible songs and abstract sounds, rather than their first pick-your-price download.

To the casual listener ‘In Rainbows’ is exactly what you’d expect from Radiohead; intelligent, satisfyingly thought-provoking and sure to be lauded by all who appreciate the less conventional. For the fans it’s the latest evolution of something really rather special.

In Rainbows is not Radiohead's best work by any means. But, this is probably the album I can listen to over and over and still get the same feeling of comfort and chills. Combine this with the second disk and you get heaven in one album.

Favourite tracks: All of them

One of the best albums Radiohead have written, and seeing as they have written brilliant albums such as OK Computer and Kid A, that is very, very impressive. Be sure to listen to this album.
