Radiohead - In Rainbows

- This is the new 2022 price increase for all Radiohead albums
In 2007, Radiohead's seventh album In Rainbows fundamentally changed the way albums were released.
In Rainbows, as a title, implies a sense of comfort and delightfulness. Symbolically, rainbows are more likely to be associated with kittens and warm blankets than the grim and glum circumstances Radiohead is known for soundtracking.
There's a slight, if expected, twist at play. The band is more than familiar with the unpleasant moods associated with colours like red, green, and blue all of which, of course, help make a rainbow, all of which are present, and even mentioned, during the album. On a couple levels, then, In Rainbows is not any less fitting as a Radiohead album title than "Myxomatosis" is as a Radiohead song title.
The album is very song-oriented, with each track constantly moving forward and developing, yet there are abstract electronic layers and studio-as-instrument elements to prevent it from sounding like a regression.
Featuring the singles: "Jigsaw Falling into Place", "Nude", "House of Cards", "Bodysnatchers" and "All I Need".
Heavyweight vinyl produced by XL Recordings.
