Radiohead, one of the greatest bands of all time.

Radiohead is amazing. Their music is so….atmospheric. I’ve been listening to their newest album, In Rainbows, quite extensively lately. Their music is so hard to describe…this album has a very cool feel to it. The songs sound solemn, but at the same time they sound quite lively and quirky. For instance, the song 15 Step strikes me as a song that’s both happy and sad at the same time. You have to hear it for yourself to experience the “feeling”.

Another awesome song is All I Need. It’s probably one of the most atmospheric songs that I’ve ever heard. The bass line sounds so….ominous…I love it. The ride beat at the end is just amazing. It gets my adrenaline pumping everytime. You just feel like your in the “zone” when you listen to this song.

The thing about Radiohead is that they are so good at setting moods through their music. Each and every one of their songs makes you feel something. It’s not just a matter of listening, it’s a matter of feeling. I have a deep respect for them, I believe that they are musical geniuses to put it bluntly. They are not musical geniuses in the conventional sense, as in virtuosos with amazing chops and complexity in their playing. They are masters of their own craft which is “music that makes you feel like you’re in a trance”. Long live Radiohead.
