4 stars I definetely believe that radiohead is a prog band. The songs like paranoid android and exit music set this one in stone. One of the most influential album of the 90's that dominated the charts in 1997. Im happy to say that radiohead has found this fine line between radio friendly and experimental rock which they will find again with the release of In Rainbows. Because of their popularity, they arnt afraid of finding that new sound that most newish bands (with the exception of sigur ros) cant get away with.

There are some songs on the album I just cant get into unfortunately like Airbag and Electroneering, which is the reason its not getting a five star rating. Every other song on the album is simply a great song when it comes right down to it. Radiohead did not go wrong. This is definetely an album you pop into your car CD player and listen to all the way through if possible. The songs themselves are enhanced somehow when you listen to them all together.

If you havnt picked this up at your local CD store, its a great addition to your collection, and definetely deserves a spot in the prog scene, other than that, I dont have anything else to say.
