Best Ever Albums - Top 1,000 Albums # 6 Radiohead - In Rainbows


I like and respect Radiohead as much as anybody but it still seems strange to be in a time and place where they are set in stone as the best there has ever been and possibly ever will be. This is the first of three of their albums in the Top 6 of this rundown. It's an excellent but slightly indistinct record to my mind.

This still sounds very modern and state of the art more than twenty years on. Everything slotting into place and Radiohead embracing Durch Spring Technik. An imaculately functioning modern Krautrock band at the height of their powers.

Whether it all sounds like a coherent album is another matter. Producung those has never been the band's strength to be honest. Nevertheless, this is a wonderful series of funfair rides.Or an hour in the Modern Art sections of The Louvre or El Prado.
