In Rainbows (Disk 2)

Update: 2023-02-06


The Big Mates discuss Nestle, Rage Against the Machine, the murky depths of Adam's YouTube history, and In Rainbows (Disk 2) by Radiohead.

Adam, Steve, and Lucas continue their deep dive into the career and discography of Radiohead by tackling the bonus disc of their highly praised seventh album In Rainbows. They talk about the leftovers from the album sessions and offer up analysis, opinions, and thoughts from three differing perspectives on music, from being deeply into analysis and music, to not caring for art or critique, and everything in between.

They also explore what Radiohead and the band members got up to immediately following In Rainbows, including their eco-friendly world tour, the release of The Best Of Radiohead, their performance at the Grammy Awards, Thom Yorke's contribution to the second Twilight movie, and the releases of Harry Patch (In Memory Of), and These Are My Twisted Words.

How do these songs stack up the actual album? How many times has the word 'berserk' been used in a song? If it's not spooky, why is he making the noise that ghosts make? Find out on this episode of What Is Music?

Our next episode is out on Monday February 13th and will feature some fun commentary for Radiohead's performance at Reading Festival 2009!
