OK Computer - 9.8
In Rainbows - 9.0
Hail To The Thief - 8.5
Kid A - 8.5

The Bends 6.3
Amnesiac 6.3


For what it's worth.....


"I Will" is pretty inconsequential as a song on it's own. So short, I don't really have an opinion on it, I do think it flows intoo Punch Up brillianty. It's a bit drab when taken on it's own.

Scatterbrain is Radiohead in autopilot musically I reckon, and that's not a criticism, but something quite cool. It's quite pleasant on the ear, Tom's despairing lyric paints images, very exciting and mysterious.

"Window sill......!"

It was fun and original when LM used it. A second time is just distasteful. Especially when it's vague and ambiguous.

...however, I can support this, because it's directed a stolen jokes and tasteless ambiguity.

meh, to each his own I guess

I stand by Scatterbrain = Radiohead by numbers... it sounds like it could fit on any of their albums OK Computer onward, reminds me of Knives Out but less interesting...

I Will is full of emotion if you ask me, it's like a dark little lullaby told after some sort of apocalyptic disaster...

Totally agree. That's a great description.

...

Fair call. But on album as all-over-the-place as HTTT, it's inclusion on the album is probably warranted. It's less distinguishable than most other Radiohead songs, but it's impressive lyrically, and Yorke's vocal has never sounded so genuine IMO.

I always enjoy it when it comes on.

We Suck Young Blood is downright awful. I can't even listen to it in a broader album context anymore. It's a waste of 5 long minutes.

The only enjoyable bit is the more upbeat piano break in the middle. But that proves to be a cruel deceit, as the song goes right back to its monotony 10 seconds later (yes, I know the monotony is intentional, but it's still dull at best, unlistenable at worst).

And Scatterbrain is very good. Radiohead-by-numbers, maybe, but experimentation is not inherently wonderful, as evidenced by my tearing apart of We Suck........Young Blood. It's just relaxing and enjoyable, hardly a sin.

I think I've listened to it approximately twice.

It's true, but I love that cruel deceit of a piano break so much that the whole song kind of grew on me. I remember vividly the first time I heard it I was cleaning the house I was about to move out of, scrubbing the kitchen floor on my hands and knees, and suddenly I was like, wtf is Thom Yorke screeching about in there?? Somebody just shoot him! I had to stop, take off the rubber clothes, and go investigate the situation, looked at the lyrics, and then hit "next." But like I said, I came to kind of like it.

I sorta like We Suck although it's mostly for the piano part which is pure bliss for 10 seconds
