Cobbler needs to reevaluate his opinion on Amnesiac, or I will throw a disparaging "friggin'" in his direction.

I'm baffled reading some of these posts. Fine, with some configuration Amnesiac could be among their best, but I'm not sure how an album with Pull/Pulk, Hunting Bears and wanky reversed Like Spinning Plates could beat one of the most singular, unique, cohesive, exhausting, creative and CONSISTENT albums of the 21st century. I literally could not imagine Kid A without one of its tracks, whereas so much Amnesiac talk revolves around what one would add or subtract from it. This is not, to me, the mark of a great album.

Opinions...

I like Kid A a great deal. But definitely not in a never-soon-a-shooting-star-before way.

Kid A's a good album, but individually I only like a few of its tracks.

It switches back and forth between 2nd or 3rd. In Rainbows is basically equal. It all depends on my mood.

I'm like double rainbow guy every time I listen to OK Computer.

Kid A really is the total package: stunning individual tracks with a great deal of variety that also complement each other beautifully through mood and sequence. The only other Radiohead album in which I see those traits is King of Limbs, though I know that opinion will be unpopular.

Funny how people define greatness differently, and all that. Although it isn't.

Anyway, good Laz impression.

Imo... IMO, the highs are higher on Amnesiac, Pyramid, Army, Wrong are all much better than pretty much anything on Kid A. The amount of praise and hyberbole heapped upon it are baffling if you ask me. Is Kid A a great album? Yes. Is it some sort of transcendant second coming of aural magnificence? I dont think so...

Peoples opinions, imagine that.

Lol ^

The other day a visitor in our office had the nerve to say to me, right there in my very own office fresh from the RH show, that RH hadn't made a record worth listening to since Pablo Honey and that the only good thing he had to say about In Rainbows was that he got his money's worth with the free download. On the outside I smiled and said, "Really? That's interesting." On the inside I said, "You are a moron, I hate you, your opinion has no value, I would like to punch you in the face, but instead I will deny your existence henceforth."

It is. I think that Rainbows is the finest collection of songs that they have put together on record. Kid A is their most cohesive album, but Rainbows gets the nod from me based on the sheer excellence of every song.

Yes, yes it is.

I've probably said this before, but Kid A is extremely special to me because it opened me to all manner of new genres and styles. Before I heard it, I thought something along the lines of Led Zeppelin and What's the Story Morning Glory - you know, relatively straight-forward rock - represented the only type of "good" music. Kid A changed all that.
