90% of Pablo Honey, to name a few.

POP is dead
Stop Whispering
Sulk
Bones
Lurgee
How do you do
Pull/Pulk Revolving Doors

Of course some people might like these songs, again this is all subjective, and just my opinion

Bullet proof and Nice Dream are some of my favorites off The Bends!!! Thank God Thom didn't listen to some of you!




Kid A is great but The Bends is just awesome from start to finish! It may not have the greatest flow but it's got so many killer songs that defined mid 90s Brit rock for me...

It's obvious that you'll never change your opinion about Kid A, and I respect that. But now come on, you can't get snippy with people for disagreeing with you and praising the album. People disagree with virtually every appreciation/unappreciation thread on this site.

These threads are so pointless anyway.

trust me, buddy. i got my grubby little hands on kid A the moment it was released, and have given it plenty of listens. the verdict: i don't like it. and that's a fact. there are moments on it, and i'll take it WAY before the monstrosity that was amnesiac. but after ample listens, it just doesn't do for me what it does for you. and the clunkers are exactly what keep it from flowing. not a clunker on 'the bends' or 'ok computer'. and from your post, even you feel that there are more than 1 clunkers on kid A. how can an album with >1 clunker be better than an album with none.

thats unpossible.
well, if you just don't like an album, then thats ok

just don't fault the band for the new direction they moved in

They shouldn't. Spin-off threads are only disallowed if the original thread has been closed.

after listening to kid a again, i can say quite comfortably that those who hate kid a are morons.

i think i have a source somewhere...though i can't find it. i'll use myself as a source if need be.

it's hard to even bother to get upset over something like this. when you KNOW something is brilliant, and others are either taking the piss or simply of not the same understanding - so be it.

kid a is better than almost anything anyone else has ever come up with, at least in terms of modern music.

Kid A taught me guitars are overrated.

Don't get me wrong I like a nice three minute pop song as much as anyone else but, while not perhaps not at the level of Autechre or Aphex Twin to name but two I find Radiohead's pseudo-IDM quite pleasureable to listen to.

Nothing else released from 2000 onwards can touch it. There are certain albums from the 90s that can, but even then, Kid A is better than much of the stuff released during that period. Yes, even OK Computer.
