Radiohead "In Rainbows"

I will not praise this album as most people do, "In Rainbows" is a great album by British rock band Radiohead, and it`s probably the best album of the year, it`s maybe the kind of thing you like over repeated listening, or in time, but for me it`s a lot above average but not that good, again, it`s my personal opinion because this is my blog, you may agree or disagree.

Wikipedia classifies it under art rock, which is pretty correct, alternative rock is probably no longer correct because the genre started as a general "alternative" classification of rock bands that didn`t fit elsewhere. So far so good, you can`t really compare this album, for me it kinda feels like Coldplay mostly, as for this year there is at least one album in this style, that is Arcade Fire "Neon Bible" which i like more. There are a couple of songs that i enjoy from "In Rainbows" one of them is "Jigsaw falling into place" but if i`m not in the mood for it i just find myself yawning... a lot.

Finally, to sum things up... i like it, but for some reason i like Arcade Fire`s album more because it`s more dynamic and the sound is a little more colourful, i would recommend both, but don`t expect much from the first listening.
