great album, the one that got me into Radiohead.

"OK Computer" is still their best record though.

Ok Computer is way too depressing compared to the Bends. They achieved just the right balance of guitars and atmospherics on The Bends. I like Ok Computer but it's kinda wacked out. Of course I haven't even listened to Kid A or Amnesiac.

"i keep falling over i keep passing out when i see a face like you.
what am i coming to?
i'm gonna melt down"

black star
fake plastic trees
street spirit (fade out)

the bends is definitely one of my all-time favourites

A fantastic record by a one of my absolute favorite bands. However I do think OK Computer is their very best still.

Sure hope they're working on something new...

I appreciate it.

I admit that I pretty much like everything they've done after that album more than The Bends itself these days though. Once upon a time, it was my favorite. That time has passed.

Such a great album. It's like a nostalgia trip back to the mid 90s! The High & Dry, Fake Plastic Trees and Just videos. This album as well as Blur, Oasis, Prodigy, Massive Attack... all take me back...
