About this deal
Performer [Radiohead Are] – Colin Greenwood, Ed O'Brien, Jonny Greenwood, Philip Selway*, Thom Yorke How to differentiate this EU 2016 repress release from the almost identical EU 2007 original In Rainbows (see also newly added images numbers 7-10):
No one on here is kidding about the sound quality. The first thing I notice in this rendering more than I ever noticed in any before, is the way that Tom's vocals weave in and out of the soundscape. Incredible! That said, there is a lot of space here, lots of room between the instruments and you can follow each instrument through all of its parts, except where it all gets real heavy and layered, but that was not likely the band's goal in those passages, and it might be one of vinyl's few weaknesses anyway. The depth and dynamism of reverb and fading in and out throughout the music is as good as it gets. The stereo mix is subtle but impactful. I can only compare this to my cd copy and the cd hasn`t been played for years so for me definitely this issue is great. After 15 years of continual, radical transformation, Radiohead found themselves with time, freedom and acquired wisdom. In Rainbows is the result years of jumping into the unknown and pushing one another’s creativity.
