I don't really understand why the Wilco bashing is being made to seem like it came out of nowhere; Lance mentioned Sky Blue Sky, Laz said he didn't like it as much as IR, and we were off.

The only ones currently complaining about it are the previously-mentioned "Wilco sycophants" anyway.

So...how about The Bends? Looks like it's about to choke its big lead.

IR is just two votes down. There's still time.

Sorryyyyyy!

Though I think you already know my feelings, let me clarify that I do think Wilco are talented and good at what they do. I can't get into it much, but admittedly every time I do hear them I end up thinking "this is far better than I give it credit for". Anyways, I feel bad now.


Back to Radiohead, it's interesting to see what different albums we all seem to attach ourselves to. I'd be interested to see data on what year/era people became fans during, as I'm sure this greatly changes the albums or types of albums of theirs we all like. Being from the era when all we had from them was essentially The Bends and OK, it crushes me to ever read anyone saying anything bad about either of those albums! It's like reading someone saying something bad about your family members!

Pfft...WTF kind of single is that? Looks like something U2 would release. No b-sides, no demos, nothing...

Ummm.....the 2 live tracks are the b-sides. I know what you meant, but by definition anything on the "b-side" of a single fits the bill.


Can anyone validate this is legitimately what the single will be and isn't a fan created item?

I voted for The Bends. It's a great album, don't get me wrong, but I listened to it recently and it seemed so dated.

(Bring on the hate.)

No worries--wasn't directed at you. It just seemed like it wasn't going to stop and the thread was getting derailed, and we'd already just had one derailed thread closed. And you know how grumpy I can be about Wilco-bashing. I certainly don't mind constructive criticism, though, and you are the master there.

I became a Radiohead fan with the release of Ok Computer and quickly caught up with The Bends (many songs of which I already knew but didn't own the record yet) and Pablo Honey. I loved The Bends right away. It's just that I think Radiohead is a band that got better so I tend to love each record a little bit more. I personally think that's a rare and amazing thing with a band. Similar with U2--I was there at the beginning. I basically had Boy the minute it was released in the US because my boyfriend brought it home from the record store he was working in. I loved Boy, I liked October, I loved War, I loved UF, I loved loved loved JT but when AB was released I went completely crazy in love and then pretty much rarely listened to the earlier stuff ever again. Doesn't mean I don't still love the earlier work; they just got better for me. That's GOOD. Until..well...the last couple of records, which I like but don't love.

I really don't want to split this thread again after Sicy already had to.

Let's please just get off the Wilco talk. Seriously, if a Radiohead discussion can't carry on normally in this forum, then I highly doubt you're gonna be able to make it through an entire Survivor series...I'm not gonna wanna have to referee every single thread.

Also, please try to be respectful of the opinions of others. One person's favorite album could be another person's least favorite album...but that doesn't call for insults or bashing or anything else of that nature.

Also, I don't want anybody who doesn't enjoy Radiohead Survivor to get the idea of continuing this behavior just in hopes of this thread getting closed and the Radiohead Survivor not continuing...because that will just cause trouble for you.

I'm having a hell of a time deciding between The Bends and In Rainbows.

The Bends has Planet Telex and the title track and Fake Plastic Trees and Just and Bulletproof and Black Star and Street Spirit, but, but, In Rainbows has Reckoner and Jigsaw and All I Need and Nude and Videotape and Faust Arp...

That's when you take all 4 and let them fight it out.

You know what happens when you put 4 sharks into the same tank, after all...feeding frenzy

Are we going to be including any of the b-sides? I forgot what was decided.

I'm loving Gagging Order more and more everytime I hear it, and there's some other great ones as well.

Maybe a bonus round of just the well-known b-sides?
