I don't get the "I don't get Radiohead" argument. Take out Kid A and Amnesiac and they are a great rock band, there really isn't anything to "get." I also consider OK Computer just as accessible as The Bends.

In Rainbows has already achieved classic Bends and OK status for me, I could listen to that album for years (been listening to it every day since the release). Thom Yorke's The Eraser kicks major ass as well.

P.S. Thanks for the link. Will give it a listen asap.

OK Computer should be above The Bends in my opinion. ;)

Thanks for the heads-up, jav.

Hm, Kid A is actually my favorite Radiohead album. Amnesiac is up there. I'm not really a fan of The Bends. Ok Computer is an excellent classic. In Rainbows is pretty great.

Oh, and I absolutely despise Coldplay.

Also, javeryh, Kid A was the first Radiohead album that I actually liked. Everything else I'd heard up to that point (which was extremely limited) sort of turned me off of them.


Agreed on all fronts.

Ok Computer should be be so high up it is off the chart. It is easily their best album.

If you guys don't like the techno like I do, then no way you guys like Thom Yorke solo effort which I think is amazing.

I don't particularly like techno but I love The Eraser. Shit's not even techno, it's much more melodic electronic shit whereas most techno is the same shit over and over.

Not if you're a fan of the purely instrumental Radiohead. OK Computer was a terrific album, don't get me wrong, but I put it below The Bends because 1) The Bends (IMO) is one of the best rock albums ever recorded, and 2) because OK Computer was the start of the "musical experimentation" Radiohead, only the very-lite version.

Another great release...


thanks Javeryh. didn't realize this was out.

question: does this one "rock" a little more than disc 1. don't get me wrong, disc 1 is great (it took me a few listens to warm up to it though) but i'm looking forward to something a little closer to the bends which is my favorite.

I doubt we'll ever see anything even close to The Bends from them again. That's come and gone.

I totally agree. I really don't like techno at all but I love "space rock" (for lack of a better term) which is what I'd categorize it as... although it is heavy on the beats as opposed to someone like Failure who is more rock and less space. The Eraser is awesome.

It "rocks" less than Disc 1, unfortunately. It's still very very good though.

You know Failure, therefore you win. Do listen to Autolux?

Also, I wouldn't call Radiohead's latest stuff or The Eraser space rock, but moreso just electronica-rock, if we want to get into labeling it, that is. I just say that it's good, forward-thinking music.

yeah, I like Autolux but I think I tend to like the Ken Andrews projects more (ON, Year of the Rabbit, Replicants, etc.). His new solo CD is pretty good too.

I also agree with "electronica-rock" as a better label for The Eraser - I love that stuff. Know of any similar sounding bands that rock out but kind of have some beeps and whistles and shit going on in the background? The Postal Service is similar sort of but a lot lighter/softer sounding music...

So should I check out Andrews' stuff?

Dntel is close to very close The Postal Service, since half of TPS is Dntel himself. I can't think of any others right now 'cause I'm at work, but I'll try to let you know later.

Absolutely. The first ON album (Shifting Skin) is one of my all time favorites. Every song is great (and it's similar to The Eraser in that it's heavy on the electronica). If you have trouble locating it I could send you a copy - I try to get as many people as I can to listen to it because I think everyone should like it as much as I do.

I've got the most recent Dntel album - it's pretty good. Actually, song #4 (the duet with Jenny something) is fantastic. I'd love any other suggestions you've got...

I'll second pretty much everything here...Shifting Skin is one of my great "underappreciated" CDs, and his new solo stuff is really strong, too.

That's Jenny Lewis from Rilo Kiley. You might dig their new CD, Under the Blacklight...it's got some swanky electro elements to it.

Well, your chart does equate In Rainbows with Pablo Honey which is just crazy talk.

The real order:
The Bends
OK Computer
In Rainbows
Kid A
Hail to the Thief
Amnesiac
Pablo Honey

Fair enough - to each his own. I think more importantly we can agree on the OPINION (don't flame) that The Bends is their best work. For most people, it seems to come down to the Bends/OK Computer debate, but for me, every single song on The Bends is amazing. I can only say that about a handful of albums I've ever heard.

But then again, I am getting off topic.

yeah - I waver between those two all the time. If "Fitter, Happier" wasn't on OK Computer I might give it the edge because everything else is amazing and the best songs on OK Computer blow away the best songs on The Bends. However, I can't ignore 4 minutes of total nonsense in the middle of the disc (thank god for easy removal on the mp3 player) so The Bends edges out OK Computer.

I posted this in the OTT once upon a time when the conversation turned to all things Radiohead and thought it might be worth suggesting here, as well.

Stereogum assembled a 10th anniversary tribute to OK Computer...it's a bunch of indie-rock/unsigned bands doing track-by-track covers.

It's mostly hit or miss but generally pretty interesting. It by no means improves upon the original.

I honestly can't even see a comparison between the Bends to OK Computer...

OKC is in such a different realm to me, I guess it just came in at the right time in my musical taste's development that I have such reverence towards it.

And I find myself listening to Hail to the Theif much more then the bends..who knows with their diverse sound there is going to be many people that enjoy their changing style, well others loathe it.
