Hahahhahahah.... the album that made me say "meh" when talk about Radiohead in the first place. Yeah... maybe it's time to try it again.
Thanks!
Anyway, I'm still accepting suggestions.

Kid A took me 10 full listens before I fell in love with the whole thing, but I did enjoy individual tracks ("Idioteque," "Optimistic," "How to Disappear...").

The best thing to do is wait until nighttime, get a stellar pair of headphones, lay in bed, and just focus on that for 40 minutes... it's the best way I've found to listen to it.

OK Computer and The Bends kick copious amounts of ass and are highly recommended to anyone who likes things that are awesome.

Awwww, Martha, cute doggie!

Actually, if I have to name names, OK Computer is my fave. But I will admit 'Planet Telex' and 'Sulk' will always have a top spot in my

Those are the only three tracks that I enjoy off Kid A, as it turns out.

I absolute love the first-half of Kid A (even 'Treefingers'), but after that it really goes downhill for me, with the exception of 'Idioteque' which is just a hundred kinds of greatness.

The title track is one of the worst things I've ever heard, as well as the horn part of The National Anthem. Just awful.

You may be on the same path then, good sir.

"Treefingers" is a great atmospheric track... reading about how it was produced added to my appreciation as well.

OK Computer is my favorite overall Radiohead album. Hell, I even like "Fitter Happier."

'Fitter Happier' > 'Electioneering'

Yes. Sleeping on the bed. My side.

But not my pillow.

That I don't disagree with, and I also tend to enjoy Everything in Its Right Place live (I generally like Yorke's vocals, but six dubs of him simply wailing over himself played all at once isn't a great listening experience during the studio version).
