The art of creating an album is one of the most understated aspects in music. There's something magical about how music ebbs and flows during a single sitting and takes you on a journey. Each song has a very specific placement within the track listing; there is a natural flow that invites the listener to keep listening from start to finish.

 

Here at Runaway Music, we have provided you with the "perfect albums" of some of the most influential artists of all time. These songs — comprised of both hits and deep cuts — work together to create a cohesive album that serves as more than just another greatest hits compilation.

Led by frontman Thom Yorke, Radiohead's influence on rock music for the past two decades is unrivaled. With albums like OK Computer, Kid A, In Rainbows, The Bends and A Moon Shaped Pool headlining their nine-album career that spans 23 years, Radiohead has remained one of the most consistently great acts in rock history, thanks to the superb songwriting of Yorke, as well as the arrangements of guitarist Jonny Greenwood and production of Nigel Godrich. One of the most enigmatic bands in history, Radiohead is one of rock's greatest acts — and still have time to solidify their ranking among the greatest of all time.
