Well sorry rock the applecart, but I don't think it's even remotely their best record. Do love it, though.

If there has to be a number one, then my vote goes to OK Computer.

I can't decide. Sometimes it's the Bends, other times it's OK Computer.

I guess if I HAD to pick it would be The Bends.

The Bends definitely has its moments and is a beautiful album. But OK Computer has a lot more to offer sonically (e.g. Paranoid Android) and is a more complete album. If I had to compare them in terms of U2 albums, The Bends = ATYCLB (Thom and Bono are vocally prominent) and OK Computer = AB (Jonny and Edge lead the way).

When I first heard both albums, I liked The Bends a lot more and actually thought OK Computer was overrated nonsense. Part of the reason I believe is because The Bends has strong melodies and is much easier to like on first listen. It feels easygoing and dreamy-like (Bulletproof) but seems complacent at times. Whereas, OK Computer is a much more driven album right from the start with Airbag and doesn't really let up until No Surprises (not counting Fitter, Happier). I think it overwhelms the listener and you can't really appreciate the songs until repeated listenings. Just give it some time and watch OK Computer consume your soul. Fitter, Happier, more productive, comfortable, not drinking too much....

Even U2 can't decide. Bono was quoted saying that The Bends was his favorite Radiohead album. Edge picked Ok Computer.

I'm a little surprised we haven't seen any "Kid A beats them all" responses.

Kid A is like my 3rd fav but I would never say it beats them all.
