see...I'm a huge radiohead fan and have been since I was very young and I happen to think HTTT is near flawless.

The best two radiohead songs of this decade must be Wolf at the Door and Life in a Glass House.

I could lie down and listen to Thief all night, and nary would I want to skip a track.

There I would have to agree with you. Glass House might be my favorite Radiohead ever, or at least in my top 5. I'd love to see them explore that area a bit more as well.

Hmm... I don't HATE HTTT, but I don't love it either. I really like about half of it, and the rest bores me to tears. Not because it's ambient and electronic... Kid A is my favorite Radiohead album. Just... doesn't work for me. I won't say it's bad, just that I don't care for it much. I would like to see them move in a different direction though, but not back to their rawk days.

Same goes for me. Aside from maybe one or two tracks, I adore HTTT. 2+2=5, Go To Sleep, Where I End And You Begin, There There, Myxomatosis, and A Wolf At The Door are some of my all-time favourite Radiohead songs.

"Life In A Glass House" moves me to tears! The ending is astonishing!

I make everyone who knows Radiohead for "Creep" only listen to this song and it punches them in the face. They weren't expecting this.

i like httt, but it's missing something. i think the production absolutely sucks and that's what keeps it from being a classic.

i don't like nigel. is that ok?

2+2=5 could have been so. MUCH. BETTER.

I'm with Basstrap on the major love of HTTT, I wouldnt change a thing (at least that I can remember, it's been a while since I last listened to it......)

That being said, they really can do whatever they want with their next release and I'll be happy. Do they want to do nothing but electronic tracks? Fine by me. Do they want to do orchestrated pop? Sweet. Do they want to scream lots and throw things? Sounds like a good time. Whatever they do, I'm sure they'll make it work.

yeah, they can pretty much do anything and make it sound awesome.

i think i'd like an album's worth of where bluebirds fly, but seeing how many people hate that song, i guess maybe they shouldn't for their own sake.

have you heard it live? it's mega-sweet.

Oh, I have heard. And I too like that tracky, it's almost Autechre or Boards of Canada esque. IDM? Or should I say ISM for my fellow atsleazers.

Havent heard Life in a Glass House.

Mind you I'm only a amateur Radiohead fan. Only got into them last december, and I've only got 3 albums.

Ok Computer is a 5 star album and legendary

Hail to the thief is astonishing (The Gloaming, Wolf at the Door, Myxamatosis and Where I end and you begin are remarkable)

But i find the Bends is ridiculously over rated. Only give it about 3 stars.

Really wanna get Kid A and Amnesiac soon though...


Hope the new album is good.

1. Deadly. Can't get enough of it.

2. Sometimes I wanna rip this thing out of the cd player and fling it across the room.
