Albums of Influence - Radiohead's "In Rainbows"

I was never really a big fan of Radiohead.
I was always under the impression that they were the type of band that made these huge sonic albums on computers, and then would be forced to play a completely stripped down version of the same song on stage.
That being said, it wasn't really the record "In Rainbows" that made me fall in love with Radiohead. It was the accompanying videoed studio sessions in which the band performed each song from their new album live. All of them. Live. And they sounded amazing. Even the songs with weird ambience, or a really glitchy Roland 707 (see video below).

After watching Radiohead make all of these amazing computer-like sounds live I couldn't help but be in awe of them.

Radiohead was also the very first group to release an album as a "Pay What You Want" download, much like we did with our album "Understanding More About Nothing Than Anybody Ever Thought Impossible or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Music".

Download the entire album for free HERE, or check out the entire "Scotch Mist" video HERE, then run out and check out a Radiohead show, as they put on probably the most amazing live show you'll ever see.

Other amazing Radiohead albums include: The Bends, OK Computer, and Kid A.


  1. Radiohead is an influence for many teenagers actually for me because since I listened Radiohead's music I began my own musical career that's perfect I hope play like them.
