Radiohead - In Rainbows

Artist: Radiohead
Album: In Rainbows
Year: 2007
Genre:Alternative Rock,Electronica

Fans, music critics, and fellow musicians tend to regard them as among the most fearlessly creative bands of their era, although they are not universally popular. In general, Radiohead's music is more complex than that of other pop musicians, incorporating a wide range of influences across genres and time periods, but they identify with the punk and post-punk movements rather than with progressive rock.
Thom Yorke and Jonny Greenwood are chiefly responsible for songwriting, with Yorke initating a song, while Jonny develops it. In recent years band members have sometimes embraced less clearly defined roles. For example, bassist Colin Greenwood wrote much of "Dollars & Cents", a track on Amnesiac, by playing string samples from Alice Coltrane's work on top of a simple bassline, inspiring his brother Jonny's subsequent arrangement. Yorke, who usually plays lead, switched to bass guitar on the song "The National Anthem", the instrument usually played by Colin.
