It's probably the least depressing album they have and dare I say it sounds "lightfooted".

Amnesiac oscillates for my top spot. Come on, Ty Cobbler.

I'm afraid, outside of Packt, Pyramid Song and Glasshouse, I really don't enjoy it.

If we have nothing else, Imp, we have this.

I think the consensus on Feral being crap is one of the mote overwhelming consensuses we've had with this band in a while.
It's an opinion I was wrestling with only shortly after its release, but I know people around here tend to flip their shit even more at extreme reactions closer out of the gate. It's not exactly a personal revelation. At the very least I think it's their most consistent, sonically profound production, and there's not a single moment on the album I don't really like, which I can't even say about Amnesiac which I'll admit still has higher peaks (I think "Knives Out" is an outright stinker, though... the one blemish on an otherwise masterful album).

Also, I don't really subscribe to "bests" in any form of art or entertainment, as it's a bit of an arrogant ascription of quality to a subjective reaction to artistic expression. So yeah, the most I could ever say is that this album is the one that resonates and "gives" the most to me personally. But by all means we can roll with the notion that I'm a pure contrarian. I haven't really been doing enough lately to up my sustain my snobbery.

This. Probably why whenever I go to a U2 show I almost always end up thinking 'Christ, I hate U2 fans.'

As for Radiohead, I'm starting to doubt they'll produce anything again that's up to the quality level of 'Hail to the Thief,' much less The Bends/OK Computer/Kid A. (I did finally get around to hearing 'Supercollider' which I'll admit was pretty good)

It bugs me to no end to have tracks in iTunes with no cover art, so I made this:

You could have said that that was the official artwork and I totally would have believed you.

I was briefly exciting thinking the studio version of the song was available on iTunes. Curse you, Danny Boy.

It's just a pic I found that I thought looked Radioheadish, but thanks just the same.

Maybe I would have believed it if the words looked like:
