Released: October 2007

'In Rainbows'' finest moment had actually been around for several years before its 2007 release. Although the early incarnation of the song bore scant resemblance to its finished state, the band apparently liked Jonny Greenwood's instrumental part so much that they decided to turn it into an entirely new track, but keep the same title. What 'Reckoner' does so effortlessly is show that Radiohead can still be masters of subtle, guitar-based songwriting. Thom Yorke has rarely sounded as soothing, and with the band's superb off-kilter playing seeming ever so slightly out of step, the song is one of the most captivating of their career.
