In Rainbows - From the Basement

Radiohead’s video album In Rainbows - From the Basement is incredible. About an hour ago I downloaded their album from iTunes and I’ve been watching/listening to it ever since. I’m amazed at how many instruments lead singer Thom Yorke plays on various tracks — guitar, piano, drums.

I’m not one to watch music videos but I found myself glued to my screen as Radiohead played 10 tracks from their last album, In Rainbows. The performances are flawless and show how tight the band is when they play live.

It is also interesting to see how the band creates their sound — you get to see who is playing a xylophone or guitar or singing during each song. Very few elements of the music are sampled and most of it is performed live.

At the bargain basement price of $7.99, Radiohead has one of the best video albums I’ve seen to date.
