Is "In Rainbows" underrated??

I really don't think this album gets the respect it deserves. In my opinion, it's Radiohead's second best effort. I rank it just slightly below "Ok Computer". Not a weak song on it! Does anyone agree?

Well, I think that it is not only their strongest album, but the single best album of the 2000s. The critical consensus was also overwhelmingly positive in terms of both content and distribution method. I would say that it gets the respect that it deserves, but I also suspect that there will be posts claiming that it is overrated.

Agreed.

Overrated. But then again I tend to think this for every Radiohead album except for The Bends (their best) and Pablo Honey (who cares).

Although it DID get good reviews, the reason I'm saying it's underrated is because imo, it gives Ok Computer a run for it's money as "best radiohead album created"

Yeah, I have the same opinion. It's good, but not BEST MOST ALBUM EVAR.

No one around here says that, but it's a very good album.

This is all completely true. The problem is your first line and, by extension, the purpose of this thread. IMO, there is no such thing as an underrated Radiohead album, and I say that while adoring most of them. It's convenient that I do love the band as much as I do, or I would probably consider their fans as insufferable as everyone else does.

"One person the other day" must be an old user; nobody is allowed to have a name that long anymore. Narrows it down a little.
