There There is the best song on HTTT, and I can name three songs on Bends that blow it out of the water:

The Bends
Fake Plastic Trees
Black Star



And yes, I know you'll pull out the old "oh, but Bones and Sulk suck sooooo hard!!!" (both of which I really like) argument, but you couldn't possibly tell me that We Suck......Young Blood and the miserable studio recording of Backdrifts aren't at least somewhere in that ballpark.

this we suck young blood is meant to sound the way it does

it's a joke song...the band know that
I think it's a pity that more people don't understand that this song really isn't serious.


and backdrifts is awesome..especially live



and Stop mindlessly bashing HTTT

or I'll cut you

lets mindlessly bash HTDAAB instead

will you join me in sniffing babies heads?

I hear they smell like freedom

Jokes aren't an excuse for not writing a quality musical piece to back it. Much like the majority of HTTT, it lacks energy and spark. The only good part of that song is the 10 seconds where it comes to life towards the end...only to die a horrible death immediately thereafter.

And I will never bash HTDAAB. At least U2 sounds like they actually care about recording on that record...even if they occasionally get a bit overzealous.

Are you saying that Bends isn't a masterpiece???

Well, actually, I'd say OKC is their only masterpiece, but Kid A and Bends are both excellent records, while Pablo and Amnesiac are both good in different ways.

LP7 will join Kid A and Bends.

I've said it before, and I'll say it again...I like Amnesiac, but I don't think I've ever come across a record quite as frustrating as it is. This is because, though its defenders may say otherwise, it's nothing more than a slightly glorified b-side collection. Pull/Pulk, a pointless remix of Morning Bell, and Hunting Bears speak for themselves.

However, there are several songs on it I really, really like:

Packt Like Sardines (underrated)
Pyramid Song (bloody amazing)
You And Whose Army (wonderful ending, nice melody)
I Might Be Wrong (rocks hard)

I'm not big on LIAGH or Like Spinning Plates (it got good live) though. But, I do think D&C is pretty cool, and, though I consider it filler, I do enjoy Hunting Bears.

It's a mixed bag, but mostly enjoyable. 7/10.

I disagree with this erroneous statement

calling songs like

pyramid song

I might be wrong

Life in a glasshouse and

like spinning plates...B-Sides is a travesty


although the original track list for Amnesiac included Cuttooth
as track 9 instead of hunting bears


stupid RH for removing it
