Normal The Bends is a damned beautiful album!!!

While driving home tonight from the pub I listened to the better part of The Bends again. This album strikes me again and again. What a wonderful piece of music from one of the best bands around.....

sorry just had to write that....

ya it is great, but you know, if it didnt have fake plastic trees, i bet it would fall into third place behind ok computer and kid a for me...

all i know is ok computer is my fav, and the bends and kid are right behind it.

no need to rank them though, man am i dumb.

its my favourite Radiohead album too. Though I have listened to the last 2 on the advice of some others here, I thought they were pretty good, but maybe a bit patchy, or else too weird for me.

I love the bends though, especially High and Dry, and Just but they're all great tracks.

Always a very beautiful and moving album..has such a melancholic spirit to it which captures a time and place for many...Fake Plastic Trees, (nice dream), Bullet Proof, Street Spirit, Black Star...so many gems
