Wow, YLB trashing Kid A.

That's pretty awesome.

Also nice to see that intedomine's tastelessness isn't a new occurrence and is clearly something chronic.

Everything is broken
Everyone is broken
Where do we go from here
The words are coming out all weird
Where are you now, when I need you
I wish it was the sixties, I wish I could be happy
I wish, I wish, I wish that something would happen
I wanna live, breathe
I wanna be part of the human race, race, race, race
All your insides fall to pieces,
you just sit there wishing you could still make love
She lives with a broken man
A cracked polystyrene man
Who just crumbles and burns
Now I can't climb the stairs
Pieces missing everywhere
She says she would love to come help but
The sea would electrocute us all
You do it to yourself, you do
And that's what really hurts
I could burst a million bubbles
Blame it on the satellite that beams me home
When the loving comes and we've already gone
Just like your dad, You'll never change
And fade out again and fade out again
Immerse your soul in love
Immerse your soul in love

This, this is our new song
Just like the last one
A total waste of time

Still underwhelming as an album for me, mind you (Nice Dream) has really grown on me the past 6 months or so, one of Yorke's greatest vocals.

My opinions have changed slightly in 2 years, slightly, but I'm still proud of that comment.

I'd have to agree with the OP. The Bends is a beautiful album. I absolutely adore it. For me, its stood the test of time, because I can listen to it all the way through and not get bored of it.

The Bends is indeed a beautiful album, and IMO Radiohead's most purely enjoyable work, Partly because it was made before Thom Yorke, for some unfathomable reason, decided to ruin his naturally gorgeous voice and adopted the strained nasally singing style that to me makes songs like Idioteque a near-torture to sit through. On The Bends though his singing is lovely.

Beautiful , just beautiful. Let the album stand on its own, it does not need comparisons to other Radiohead albums, it stand alone....

I've said it before, and I'll say it again. The Bends is my favorite Radiohead album.

Indeed, The Bends is a terrific, terrific album. I don't give it the credit it deserves sometimes.
