In Rainbows is much more 'love-able.' I just find it delightfully accessible and real ear candy, especially thru track 2 to 9.

Kid A is hard to disresepect. Idioteque is possibly R-Hed's greatest moment.

Why bother with The Bends then, if OKC failed it impress?

I had the utmost admiration for R-Hed after I finally learnt to appreciate and discovered the appeal of OkC, and Kid A and especially HTTT heightened that level of praise, while The Bends has significantly undermined that somewhat.

If Radiohead aren't doin' it for ya....Travis' The Man Who is an immensely sweet album to own.

You're one of the few people (or even one and only person) I know that doesn't like the Bends. Doesn't mean he won't like it either!

COBL_04, I think OK was a bad place to start. Yes, I know I said get it if it's on sale. But... The Bends is a LOT easier to get into! I don't see the Bends steering you away from radiohead any more than you already seem to be after listening to OK.

Yes, thank you. I still don't see how you can dislike OK Computer either, but that's your opinion I guess. No matter how wrong it is.

Check out the Gin Blossoms, too. Their 2 songs kick too much ass!

And don't forget to check out The 4400 and Battlestar Galactica, but only watch the latter if you're going to appreciate the dense political subtext.

Gin Blossoms have about 50-odd songs, to say that they only have one song is to say that Radiohead only has 1 song.

Corrected for truth.

Has this entered Interference culture?? I think it has. At least in B&C anyway.

And Zootles I checked out the Radiohead section, unfortuantely all the albums were $27, which was too much I'm afraid. I did like Fake Plastic Trees though. And I will revisit OKC one day. One day. And I trust me, I do NOT fail, my ipod kicks ass, men.
