The Best Song on In Rainbows
Radiohead – Reckoner
Unfortunately, not only is the video quality awful on YouTube — so is the audio quality. I wish I knew a place to host MP3s. Too bad that WordPress doesn’t have imeem.com support. Even with this shit quality, the song is still amazing. Yorke’s voice hasn’t had the chance to shine much over the course of the past few Radiohead albums, but it is truly showcased in this track. The percussion is really catchy as well. And of course, each guitar string sounds perfectly plucked. The song is probably my favorite from Radiohead since “The National Anthem” and one of the best songs of the year.
