In Rainbows: Impressions

I haven’t had the chance to do it, but I’ve been wanting to express my love for the new Radiohead album, In Rainbows. God, it is so good. Seriously, it is exactly what I’ve been wanting to listen to for a very, very long time. I’m not as much a music person as I use to be. The reasons for that is simple. My brain can only do so much. I’m into comics, video games and books, stories. And I write. And I drink. Too much. Often to the point where I’m screaming at little girls in bars. But that’s for another post. In Rainbows has these amazing ups and downs, theses pushes and then these let ups. It is almost like someone put a novel to music, the way the album goes to the high points and these low points. So good. I’ve never been the best Radiohead fan. Ok Computer was OK. I enjoy Kid A and Amnesiac alot. But In Rainbows, in this dudes humblest of opinions, is the high note for them. Curious how creativity comes late in a career, even when you really don’t need it to.
