I always think Hail to the Thief is a good choice.

I got into Radiohead with Kid A, so I wasn't really shocked by it. I remember the first time I heard OK Computer, I was completely stunned; I wasn't sure what to make of it. Now it's my second favorite Radiohead album (Kid A is my favorite.)

I don't think they've really released a bad album yet. Pablo Honey is really underrated, IMO. Yeah, it's not The Bends or OK Computer, but it's a solid rock album.

Humorously, that's probably my most listened to song form the album over the last 2 or 3 years. I love it, but a lot of that probably has to do with how much more accessible the live version is because you can actually understand Thom..

Hunting Bears has become one of my most listened to tracks from Amnesiac as well.

I think they're songs that were easy to dismiss early on when all I wanted was straight forward Radiohead pop songs. They're both quite good for what they are though.

The horns are the best part of National Anthem, lol.

I love it, too. I think I've said this before but I fell in love with Kid A traveling a lot that year. I love listening to the title song while roaming through airports because not understanding Thom reflects watching mouths move but not having to overhear people's stupid conversations, especially the ones happening on cell phones.

Preface: I hate horns in just about anything.

That said, somehow the horns in National Anthem are pure tits.

Thanks.

I think they've gone back into the studio to record. Don't quote me on that, though.

I think we'll see a new Radiohead album either late this year or early 2010.

Hmmm... heard Hail to the Thief (again, an album that I've heard before, but I don't think that many times. Maybe one or two times.)
Weak, weak album when compared to the others I've heard. Maybe too much songs? Maybe it's a grower? I don't know. But at this listen it seemed weak. I believe the songs are too similar, but I don't know. It's still a good album though. I'm saying weak when compared to Bends, OK, and Kid... albums that I've enjoyed a LOT. "2+2=5.(The Lukewarm.)" and "A Wolf at the Door. (It Girl. Rag Doll.)", which are respectively, opener and closer, happen to be the strongest tracks.
Like I said, maybe it's a grower... I'll give it another listens with time and see what happens.

But I'm still loving Radiohead and from now on I'm not familiar with any other album except In Rainbows... so I want another suggestion. Which one now? Amnesiac? Pablo Honey? Any great EP?

Of these two: Amnesiac.

You're right. But I grabbed this quote from wikipedia (I know wikipedia isn't always reliable, so take it with a grain of salt):

Quote:
Radiohead toured North America, Europe and Japan in 2008 to promote In Rainbows.[48] They also discussed recording new songs once the tour was finished.[65] In March 2009, Radiohead will play concerts in Mexico, Chile, Argentina and Brazil with Kraftwerk,[66][67] the band's first ever tour of South America and their first dates in Mexico in 15 years

Radiohead - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

My three favorites from that album are There There, A Punchup at a Wedding, and A Wolf at the Door.

And go Amnesiac. Pablo Honey is very plain.
