Nice Dream is one of my favorite songs by any band.

See, I absolutely adore Kid A too but songs like Bulletproof and Nice Dream are in my Radiohead Top 10, maybe Top 5. Fantastic stuff!

Planet Telex is one of the great openers, love Sulk too. I could easily mount a case for any song on that album, I don't know how most feel about High and Dry but I think that has a worthy place too.

Is this Chuck Eddy Guy the dad of every Pitchfork reviewer?

And Sulk is in my RH top 6 or 7.

My Iron Lung is one of my least favorites on the album these days.

I go through different phases with different tracks being favorites and least favorites, but at the end of the day, this is easily my favorite Radiohead album.

I have never liked My Iron Lung or Just very much, and that probably colours my impression of the otherwise stunning moments on the album. They were still in a transitional phase at the time, I think. Still moving out from under that early 90s thing, and on their way to what they would become.

I love the verses and guitar in My Iron Lung but the chorus sucks, and I don't like Just much.

Have never understood the ambivalence for High and Dry though, love that song.

Yeah High & Dry is beautiful - one of their most natural and effortless melodies.

What I anticipate will be an unpopular opinion: I prefer King of Limbs to The Bends, as great as the latter is.

I think Cobbler nailed it. It's always been my least favorite, but the verses don't bother me. The chorus is meh. I don't really like the guitar either, though.

Just is prob my second least favorite, but there's a big gulf between.

Bulletproof is my #1

Even though the Peter Pan lyric bugs me I like how Thomas holds the note in Bones.

Bulletproof (I Wish You Weren't) is still the best alternative song title I've gotten from Interference. Sounds like a Jack Nicholson Party song.

Hasn't Thom Yorke put a bullet in his head yet? Just kidding, not really, but yes this was a great album. Although much like U2 I dont think Radiohead has ever made a bad album in my opinion. Will be interesting if they put out another album and I hope they do.
