ANOTHER record which rewards with repeated listens is Radiohead's latest opus.
Finally available in your favourite record store, after Thom Yorke & Co let people pay whatever they wanted for it online last October, In Rainbows is doubtlessly a challenge for anyone hoping for The Bends mkII.
But for those with mind and ears open, there's much to appreciate. The jittery drum machine of 15 Step acts as a counterpoint to the soft key swirls and Yorke's whining vocals, invigorating the whole, while the distorted bass riff of Bodysnatchers and the agitated ennui of Jigsaw recall Amnesiac's atmospherics.
A record you could - and should - live inside for a week.
