#20. Radiohead   Jigsaw Falling Into Place In the months before “Jigsaw Falling Into Place” was released, Radiohead were given inch after inch of column space of praise and criticism for the innovative marketing and release tactics they employed for their name-your-price 7th LP, In Rainbows. It wasn’t until XL’s proper, industry standard release of In Rainbows that people seemed to remember that Radiohead actually made music.

In a very un-Radiohead like move, “Jigsaw Falling Into Place” — the most The Bends/OK Computer-sounding track on In Rainbows — was released as the album’s lead single. No other mainstream rock act has the audacity or talent to create most of the music Radiohead has consistently delivered over the last 10 years, and with this song, Radiohead showed everyone that they can not only create a devastatingly beautiful electronic album like Kid A, but can also follow basic pop-song structure and still outshine contemporaries likes Muse and Coldplay.
