Well, I voted for Kid A.

The problem is that all of these albums are so damned good. There's not a lot of fluff on these.

Looking at how I rank the songs in iTunes, they're all quality:
The Bends: 12 songs out of 12, 5 stars
OK Computer: 10 out of 12, 5 stars (the others at 4 stars)
Amnesiac: 7 out of 11, 5 stars (the others at 4 stars)
Kid A: 6 out of 10, 5 stars (the others at 4 stars)
Hail To The Thief: 9 out of 14, 5 stars (the others at 4 stars)
In Rainbows: 10 out of 10, 5 stars

I might pick OK Computer first place overall for historical import and because the great songs are SO great, even though there are a couple songs that I don't like as much.

And yet, it gets played less than the others.
That's exactly how I feel as well, I think it's a testament to RH that the difference from my most to least favorite albums is very slim... But in a good way

I totally agree. After PH, they're all more or less 5 stars in my book.

I was torn between The Bends and HTTT, but ended up choosing HTTT...

What's so great about Kid A compared to the others?

It has several songs I like a lot, but it also has Kid A, Treefingers, In Limbo and Motion Picture Soundtrack, which don't do that much for me.

Amnesiac gets me more excited.

The whole album is great. It has incredible atmosphere, sequencing, and most of the tracks are fantastic. Certainly not the worst of the bunch.

I cannot believe that anyone on Earth does not like The Bends. It may be true, but I personally refuse to believe it.

OK Computer is going to win this draw easily.

Tough call between Amnesiac and HttT, but I have to go with the latter.

Who doesn't like The Bends? You know it's not me. I made that clear, right? RIGHT??

Even though I love Amnesiac, I'm surprised HTTT isn't surviving longer. It certainly has more palatable "songs" than Amnesiac, and I would have thought the Bends/OK fans would be more partial to it.

I still wonder if more people would like it if you lost the three least-accessible songs (namely I Will, We Suck Young Blood, and The Gloaming).

^ I agree, laz. But I've always been completely and utterly mystified by how many fans dislike HTTT, and how much so. I cannot understand it. Do people really think I Will is inaccessible??!
