  1. There should be more music critics like you. Today music criticism is so casual; even old farts like Robert Christgau. Is In Rainbows your top album of the decade?

  2. Hey just wanted to say this was really great. I love analyses like this about movies/music/etc. I’m sure this took you a good amount of time but I think there would be a market if you were to do this with Radioheads other albums and other meaningful musicas well. Regardless, good work on this one… have always loved this album
