For the completely new Radiohead fan..

.. what do you recommend to buy for the first album?

I've been interested in them since Kid A came out, but only recently did I decide I needed to get one of their albums. :P So.. recommendations for a new fan: what album should I start with?

sweet...

I only recommend The Bends to start with, not because I think it's their best album, but because I think it's their most accessible to the average rock fan who might be curious about radiohead

Nope.. just my name. Irish and Danish background.

that is soo awesome you love that cd! id never have guessed it, but then again, it was kid a that got me into radiohead in the first place, and atyclb out of u2.... :S

i really really hope u2 can get me to be excited about them soon, i really want to say their my fav band...but man guys.... a little more punch and creativity like you did up to and including pop would be nice.

id recommend downloading I Might Be Wrong, the song. any version, live or studio will do.

however next album, i say ok computer.

Well, I first got interested in them back when it came out.. and then Amnesiac only intrigued me more. ( the Pyramid Song) I'm glad I finally listened to it.

Yeah.. I agree. ATYCLB was good (it was what got me into U2, after all) but I still think they should be more experimental the next time around.

I Might Be Wrong... hmm.. unfortunately I don't have a program to download mp3s with except FTP. Does anyone know of any good RH FTPs?
