I dont think you will be able to convince me to your way of thinking

I believe my way is 100% right

I am now off to make my carbon footprint even bigger - might sleep with the computer, speakers and lamp on considering i dont have to pay for electricity bills where I am

Goodnight - make sure you remember people are dying in Africa as we speak

Perhaps a copy of Kid A will save them or maybe Amnesiac. Discuss.

I think that's a fair assumption. I, of course, would give OK Computer that title because I like every single song on it, but it's perfectly understandable that someone else would give it to In Rainbows, which is arguably their most "crafted" and coherent album.

No Surprises and The Tourist are sort of low points for me on OK Computer, whereas there is really no low point on In Rainbows for me, which is why I rank it slightly ahead.

I agree with that. In Rainbows is probably the only Radiohead album in which I like every song a large amount. I would have said The Bends could challenge it if it wasn't for High and Dry and Sulk. OK Computer is probably the closest in terms of consistency but there are just a couple of songs I can't get into on that. No matter how much I try, I can not get into Subterranean Homesick Alien.

I think OK Computer is absolutely brilliant thematically, which pushes it ahead of everything in their discography. The production is incredible too, superior to In Rainbows. Still, I'll give that album its props. It's certainly one of their four classic albums.

2+2=5, There There, A Punchup at a Wedding, Myxomatosis, and A Wolf at the Door are all great tracks.
The best song from those sessions is "Gagging Order," sir.

If you walk the streets they follow you for ages - they think just because your from the UK you must be loaded. If you gave a penny to everyone who asked you'd end up on the streets yourself.

When you stop at traffic lights they bang on your windows.

Its not just India - i dont care about homless people in the UK if they are druggies - should have thought otherwise before becoming wasters
You'd hate Slumdog Millionaire.

The album just seems awkward, like I just hear Dollars and Cents and Morning Bell Part 2 and Life in Glasshouse and Sardines and think oooh....it's not such a beautiful day today is it, that's not to say I hate the songs, just they don't make me go out and wanna enjoy life....

It's personal, the songs might hit me, but don't hit the spot like a good block of chocolate or a good European beer or whatever......
I don't know why I cherry-picked this post out, but it cracks me up.

This post is quality, so here's a treat. Go to Google Maps, search "8 sampsonia way, pittsburgh PA," click Street View, and turn slightly to the left.

He remembered that 2 years ago, a battle was fought on that hollowed ground. And that he, and only he, would be the one to tell the entire world about it.

Naturally, they forgot and read Twilight and listened to Oasis, but he carried that seed in him... and now, he has left that seed in you.
