No one fucks with The Bends. Pretty much the only irreproachable Radiohead album.

Everything else falls in the
categories 'rookie', 'overrated', 'tuneless', 'crawled up their own arse' or 'lousy songwriting'.

You really love that song? I think it's a half-assed version of what they would later perfect on OK Computer.

On a more positve note, Fake Plastic Trees is one of the top 5 songs of the '90's.

High and Dry is ok. Except that Yorke's falsetto on the hiiiighs and driiiiiies isn't very immaculate.

The Bends is a good song with great guitar.

Those are the only 4 songs I've heard on the radio recently. So, I'll stop there and go back and listen to the rest.

The radio is the last place where I'd listen to Radiohead! In fact radio stations around here hardly play any Radiohead at all.

Besides.. I think the best songs on The Bends are Nice Dream, The Bends, Bulletproof, Black Star, Sulk, Street Spirit and Fake Plastic Trees of course!

Pfft, you'll never change.


I reread the entire thread, ahh the memories. Remember when this was the Radiohead only section of the forum? Oh the memories, I wasn't all crippled and cracked then.


No one has still ever taught me how to be a holy cow.

Satellite radio plays Radiohead constantly. I actually enjoy the satellite experience better than making my own playlists with an Ipod or whatever.

The element of surprise and discovery is much stronger when you don't know what's coming. Plus, when hearing all kinds of songs next to each other that seemingly don't belong next to each other is a better platform for getting a handle on the strengths and weaknesses of various songs.
