Radiohead – In Rainbows

In Rainbows

If you live under a rock and haven’t heard by now, Radiohead has released their new album called In Rainbows which is available for download on their website. Personally I think it might be their best album yet, yes even better than the amazing Ok Computer. The album pulls the best parts from all their previous recordings and mixes it all together into one euphoric experience. If you haven’t purchased it yet, head over to InRainbows.com and pay what you want for it. I myself payed $20. It’s worth a lot more than that.

A great step in the right direction. Soon all the major companies will follow.
