He's left his mark!

I especially like some stuff on Chrome because it's heavy enough for me to bang my head to. Fuck yeah.

Yeah, I think this is how you'd enjoy them:

Pablo Honey
Hail to the Thief - a good album, but it's got 2-3 too many songs.
Amnesiac

Did you end up listening to the rest of their catalog? I'm interested what you thought of it

What a guitar riff, too.

NSW advised me only to download Ferment, Chrome, and the b-sides/rarities compilation, so those are the only ones I got. Haven't got to the b-sides yet; I began with Ferment and let it settle in for a couple of days before moving onto Chrome yesterday.

I've liked Ferment and Chrome enough that I'm becoming genuinely curious about the direction they pursued on the later albums though, so I'll probably download them.

If you didn't like Kid A you will definitely not like Amnesiac

In Rainbows is really good, I am still surprised by how much I like it, it’s their most accessible album imo, even my wife likes it and she hates Radiohead.

Pablo Honey is terrible, even the band doesn't like it

just be prepared it is different but it's not as bad as many would have you believe...

What did you think of their cover of Wish You Were Here?

ETA :woops! try reading elfa! you haven't listened to the b-sides yet...

I'll give it a shot; I'm pretty favourably disposed towards them right now so I figure it can't go too badly.

Actually, I was curious enough about the WYWH cover that I gave it a spin last night. I was expecting it to be shoegazy and ... it's not, it's different, but very competent, very well done. I was impressed.

Well, after Catherine Wheel songs like Kill Rhythm and Crank put me in the mood for something that's really fuckin' heavy, I just had to put on Opeth's Bleak. Now there's a song that makes me want to stand up and headbang every time. And come on, it's got Steven fucking Wilson. God yes.

But with that, I'm exhausted. Night, folks.
