Musically superior in every aspect.
Most accurate post so far, I concur.

That being said, I also am a fan of Coldplay.

How can you compare these 2 bands?

1. Six albums out so far
2. OK Computer hailed by fans and critics as one of the greatest albums of all-time.
3. Changed their sound dramatically but still managed to maintain a huge following.

1. Two albums out, okay Three in June.
2. Both were very successful but I doubt if it was even close to the success of OK.
3. Havent really changed their sound much from what I've heard so far and are probably still growing.

Anyway........... judging by the songs I've listened to (which is not necessarily a good indicator), I prefer Radiohead.

I might be more than a little biased though, since the only Radiohead songs I've heard are: Creep, We Suck Young Blood, The Gloaming, Fake Plastic trees, and Where I end and you begin.

I find them both to be utterly lifeless, sterile and soulless.

Coldplay - I say this because although I am also a huge Radiohead fan, i'm very passive when it comes to some of their work (particularly their work since Amnesiac). It's hard to compare based on the difference in quantity of work, but I have throughly enjoyed everything I have heared by Coldplay.

I'm shocked it's even a debate, but to each his own.

Radiohead. Despite their last 3 records.

But it's hard to compare a 6 album cult band with a 2 album band that has the privilege of mass radioplay.

Bends is overrated. OK Computer and HTTF are a lot better.

A rush of blood to the head is possibily the best album so far this century. (Competition comes from: Foo Fighters TINLTL, and U2's HTDAAB)

I agree, Radiohead has no competition

If you can't appreciate Kid A and Amnesiac, that's your own loss. To each his own.
