But I do think there is a difference between overrated and overhyped.
I've never liked WOWY all that much. It's relaxed, but it's the most overrated/hyped of the three. Streets is good, but comes to life when played live, and ISHFWILF is my favorite of them. I really like that one.

But it's all about 5-9. Every song in that stretch is perfect. And I mean EVERY song.

My case for The Bends over OK Computer:

- Less depressing overall... happy balance of joy and sadness

- More consistent... great songs from start to finish, no slight dip in quality after song 6

- Cos it has Fake Plastic Trees, Nice Dream and Bulletproof

Okay scrap the last one.... personal pref

Trip is the perfect song for its place on the record. The song is so natural, so fun. The lyrics are rock solid. Think about the songs that surround it; Trip is a natural piece of the puzzle...the song that keeps the album from sinking under due to its own seriousness.

Gosh, JT would have been so boring and sullen had they not included Trip. Good call, Edge.

The Bends
dips in quality on track 11 other than that incredible album

but is it better than the OKC ?

it doesn't have "Let Down" or "The Tourist" therefore NO!...


"Let Down"

My case for OKC over the Bends:

1. Has more life/energy in it.

2. More variety.

3. Has a genius lyrical thread/theme running through it. Bends has "I used to fly like Peter Pan".

4. Better instrumentation by far; I'm not sure if Bends-era Radiohead could have recorded a solo as awesome as Paranoid Android's.

5. Better sequencing. High And Dry--->Fake Plastic Trees is a disgrace.

6. Less filler.

7. OKC has SHA on it, and Bends doesn't. That's the wild card.

8. Personal preference.

Btw, I see what you say about Let Down. It really IS a feel good track! I just feel euphoric when I listen to it. How ironic!

But anyway, Black Star gives me that same euphoric feeling. And Street Spirit is as good a closer as The Tourist IMO.

I don't see even one track on The Bends that qualifies as filler.

Bones + Sulk

I like them both, but they're filler. High And Dry was put on for sales only; the band hates it.

You got to feel it in your bones!!!!!!! It's such a rush of music!

It's a rush of blood to the head.

That's how I feel about "Sulk". It's a song that has such a release! I love it!

And Street Spirit and The Tourist are miles, miles, MILES better closers than Motion Picture Soundtrack!!!! That's right!
