Radiohead: In Rainbows

I've only ever heard bits of Radiohead songs in the past (Karma Police, Subterranean Homesick Alien, Paranoid Android, Creep). Several times I've almost bought the album OK Computer, hearing that it was there best one. I just could never get past their odd and very different sound (compared to most music I listen to).

I then heard about their newest album, "In Rainbows," and how they were going to sell it for whatever you want to pay for it (even as low as $0). This intrigued me, and after doing a little research I found that the album received some pretty good reviews. So I decided to download it, and on principle I did pay more than $0. It took me a couple of times listening to it to start to appreciate the uniqueness of their sound and really start to enjoy them. If you've ever found yourself in my shoes, give it a whirl.

The first two songs (15 Step and Body Snatchers) are quite the adrenaline pumping songs, and then Nude and Weird Fishes mellow you out as you enjoy the rest of the ride through the album.
