In Rainbows is gone-zo.

In Rainbows. While really good, it can't match the brilliance of these 3 albums. Maybe one of the better 3 album stretches of any band I can thank of right now.

I'm sure someone will prove me wrong in about 10 seconds.

30?

In Rainbows is pure genius. After 2,3720 listens, it's hovering right alongside OKC as my second favourite.

Kid A.

Do it! Do it!

Don't listen to the hype.

Have you tried the 01 and 10 tracklist perchance?

It weaves In Rainbows in and out of OKC for a really interesting experience. It's hard to listen to either album the same way again.

This won't last, but I'm really enjoying seeing Kid A in the lead here.

Dark Side of the Moon / Wish You Were Here / Animals

In any case, however much it pains me to do so, I vote for The Bends. It is a superb album full of exquisite songs, but it simply lacks the cohesion of the other three.

I've heard about that, but haven't tried it...yet!

I guess I need an argument of some kind in here, so I'll say that I think In Rainbows is the most emotionally available collection of Radiohead songs. Understated and beautiful...I'll stop before I get all gushy.

Let It Bleed / Sticky Fingers / Exile on Main Street

Hunky Dory / Ziggy Stardust / Aladdin Sane

Ten / Vs. / Vitalogy

Pure musical bliss right there.

Station to Station / Low / Heroes, fool.

And obviously Sgt. Pepper / White Album / Abbey Road

Derrogatory connotation?


I went with "In Rainbows", but now I'm second-guessing my decision.

Obviously.

But where does The Bends / OK Computer / Kid A rank in all of those?

It's gotta be in the top half, at least.

Wild, Innocent, and the E Street Shuffle / Born to Run / Darkness on the Edge of town FTMFW.

Let's not get into the whole "gay" = "stupid/lame/dumb" debate in here.

Uhh, Magical Mystery Tour and Yellow Submarine came out between those, and Let It Be is before Abbey Road anyway.
