People keep talking about them, so, are these Radiohead kids any good?

If you like vocals reminiscient of cats being strangled and music that is less experimentation and more sticking a fork up one's arse, twisting ten times, and calling it experimentation, then yes.

Otherwise? Hell no. I find this forum's fascination with all things Radiohead to be incomprehensible.

I hope they received a government grant for their music

No! I can't quite pin down my distress. You not knowing the craptitude of Radiohead, freely loving Meatloaf (even that 45 minute epic which makes people kill themselves, the one about doing anything EXCEPT STOPPING THE FUCKING SONG?)... and then I got distracted and forgot the rest.

:grumpylove:

They sing Creep, Karma Police, and something else which might have been released here. They're not commercially successful unless you count the very commercially successful indie scene of Aus.

Don't think I've heard Karma Police. I think I would remember if I did as karma is decided by ones own actions not any outside party. Dropkicks.

I am having some serious trouble trying to find a fault in this sentence, not only for the use of words, but also for the accuracy of the statement.

I like the list, but Zeppelin IV is below Nevermind? That's like eating a turd sandwich over a BLT or something.

At least I know if I'm in Australia, they have good music to choose from.

Radiohead isn't a singles band, their strength is in making albums, which is one of the reasons I love them.

OK Computer from start to finish is fantastic, but like it's been expressed already in this thread, Radiohead's a "love 'em" or "hate 'em" type of band, there rarely is an in-between.
