So, one of my favorite parts about any Radiohead music is the ability to have a headphone experience. This music does not disappoint. In addition, it is beautiful.
Never in a million years...
I never thought I would have anything negative to say about this band. They were my grunge years/high school favorite and kept being great until In Rainbows. All albums after that record, I didn't hear the same beautiful music that left me wanting more. They have gone a to such a different place that I cannot lie and say they are still great and innovative. Some will say they are great just because they are Radiohead, but I won't and cannot listen to the music they have been making.

Radiohead - Still Overrated and Awful
By Creswell Vandal
Good Lord. These guys have been awful and overrated since O.K. Computer and this collection of 'B' sides is strictly an 'F'. However people are free to like what they want, which, explains Radiohead doesn't it?
Double the Rainbow
By A critic's critic
In Rainbows was already a landmark album for these masters of music innovation. But the addition of this bonus material simply makes the In Rainbows era of Radiohead music one of their most fertile times of quality song writing, second only to the OK Computer era. While not every song on this bonus album is par with the immaculate standards of In Rainbows, there are several gems in this material that could have easily made the album if it wasn't for style differences. "Go Slowly" is the best cut on the bonus album, delivering perhaps some of the most gorgeous moments of Radiohead music from any of their tracks. "Bangers + Mash" pounds you with deliciously chaotic guitar riffs akin to likes of "Body Snatchers," and "Electioneering." "Down is the New Up" highlights fantastic drumming, and a tightly constructed song framework. "Lasts Flowers" boasts another superb vocal performance from Thom, and is well worth a listen. What more is there to say: Feel the rainbow, hear the rainbow, taste the rainbow...
Surprised this was put on iTunes and Streaming
"In Rainbows Disk 2", a 2007 B-Sides collection released as part of the special edition of "In Rainbows" featured 8 songs not on the original album, and it's clear to see why. These songs actually seem to fit better together than combined with the songs on the final album. Highlights include every song not including "MK 1" & "MK 2".
First! Christmas came twice this year!
