My ratings for the albums pitchfork style

Kid A - 9.7
OK Computer - 9.6
In Rainbows - 8.9
The Bends - 8.6
Hail to the Thief - 8.0
Amnesiac - 6.3
Pablo Honey - 5.1


With 0 being terrible; 2.5 being bad; 5.0 being good (as in enjoyable but nothing special); 7.5 being great and 10 being masterpiece; or something like that

That live version of I Will is only slightly-less boring. I don't see what the big deal is, and how anyone can call Scatterbrain "Radiohead by numbers" when I Will is just totally lacking in anything, including emotion. Makes McCartney's song of the same name seem like a masterpiece.

My rating for OK Computer is even longer than pi, actually. I just wanted to prevent the forum from crashing.

ah fuck

I still can't decide which song goes on my cowboy friend's mix.

It's down to:

Let Down
Optimistic
Go to Sleep
2+2=5

Although I think Go to Sleep is not it.

If not Go To Sleep, it's got to be Let Down. Optimistic is great, but not a track that will get them excited in the band all by itself (it's one of those Kid A tracks that work well in context but feel strange elsewhere, to me anyway), and 2+2=5? Well...they have better songs.

Optimistic was the first Radiohead song I heard. It got me into the band, and I bought Kid A and OK Computer both the next day (the day Kid A came out).

Dammit, I had a good theory going there. Your opinion is of no consequence at all.
