Released: June 1997

Listening back to everything Radiohead have done since 'OK Computer' is weird. Let Down sounds so...simple and unassuming. It's almost Byrdsian in its guitar sounds. But it's weighty, clever, sleek and soulful. How many times do you find yourself saying that about Radiohead in 2011? The best bit arrives at 3:37, when Thom just loses it amid the band's gloriously uplifting crescendo. "You know where you are," he coos over and over in his best choirboy voice. He sounds unstoppable. (MW)
