Oh my God... look what I started here!!!

I've only heard Creep and Stop Whispering which are both awesome! But this will most likely be the last one I get, only cos it seems to be the least preferred.

might be the weakest debut by a great band that I can think of. shows virtually nothing of the genius that would follow.

there's only, what, like 3 great songs on here? I love Lurgee, but even the good stuff is rather generic.

How's My Driving deserves a thread more than this recording.

Their second best album and I think it's amazing. people unjustly turned their back on this album because it was the cool thing to do after Radiohead turned their back on Creep. No offense to anyone here who is a Radiohead fan but here's my opinion:

I was a big Radiohead fan durring Pablo Honey and The Bends. O.K. Computer was great but I wasn't as adoring of that album as their first two. Friends of mine who also loved them felt the same way. Now when Kid A came out I had already been listening to ambient and electronic music while my friends weren't. I found Kid A to be avaerage as far as what it seemed to be going for. Strangely though many of my friends claimed Kid A to be their favorite Radiohead album and praised it for it's "experimental" asspect. Funny. I'm gonna offend people here even though I don't mean to but I honestly belive that alot of Kid A, Amnesiac, Hail fans are fans because it convinces them that they don't follow the mainstreme. Pablo Honey and The Bends became cliches to them and were radio and listener freindly. I believe that alot of people like the idea of liking the post O.K. Computer material more because it makes them feel as if they are true fans and in some perverse way makes them seem "cooler" than the fan who likes the "freindliness" of the older material. Ouch. I know that's gonna make alot of people mad. Anyways I'm not trying to tell people why they like any such thing but to me it seems that the prasie for the newer Radiohead material has more to do with it being Radiohead than the actual material itself.

Well... there IS that attitude of going where your artistic instincts take you and not giving a fuck about album sales or popularity, that is very attractive about Radiohead. Unlike a certain other band.. *cough* That said, I absolutely love Kid A for the music! NOT for the indie appeal. Of course, initially I did have a WTF moment with the Kid A samples I heard online and only bought the cd recently. And The Bends is still my favorite album! Guess I can appreciate both sides of this band... at least so far..lol. But I can't speak for other fans here.

No. I love OKC/Kid A/Amnesiac/HTTT because it's just great music. It takes me to another world. It is brilliant.

Hey Zoot...serious question...Kid A...is it better than Achtung?

No doubt I appreaciate a band making music they want rather than what the fans want. When you stop doing music for yourself and start doing it for others it becomes stale and soulless. I'll always buy a new Radiohead album the day it's released. They're too talented to not give them a chance every time. And namkcuR if you don't mind I'll answer that question.

Q: Is Kid A better than Achtung Baby?
A: HELL NO!!!!!!

Please ask me this in a couple of weeks or a month.. not now. The thing is I'm high on Kid A right now and a bit bored of Achtung. But no way is anything going to overtake Achtung Baby in my mind!

Kid A is barely (maybe not even) better than the Bends. No way is it better than Achtung.

Next thing you know, I'll be claiming that Lovetown's sets were weak.
