4 stars I thought it was about time I reviewed this since they've just released a new album. "In Rainbows" is the best album they've put out since "Kid A" in my opinion, and it's in my top three favourite albums from them. So yeah I like it. I love the fact that this clocks in at around 42 minutes as well.

"15 Step" has this in your face beat as the vocals join in. Guitar before a minute then synths a minute after that.This really does sound amazing. A top three. "Bodysnatchers" has these fuzzy guitars and a beat as vocals join in. Love the sound after 2 minutes.The guitar is prominant late. "Nude" is where they slow it down with those mournful vocals adding to the depressing mood. "Weird Fishes / Arpeggi" sounds great with those intricate drums and the guitar as vocals join in around a minute. A top three. "All I Need" has this beat but also a fuzzy beat to go along with it and vocals. Piano before 3 minutes when the vocals stop.

"Faust Arp" features gentle guitar and vocals. Strings too in this cool sounding track. "Reckoner" has a heavy beat as vocals arrive before a minute. Strings later. "House Of Cards" is my other top three although it might be because i've heard this song a few times previous to listening to the album. "Jigsaw Falling Into Place" is fairly uptempo as vocal melodies then vocals join in. "Videotape" has these reserved vocals along with piano before a beat joins in.

Man these guys sure know how to create a mood, and also some fantastic music. An easy 4 stars.
