And that entire Radiohead thread is just proving exactly how overrated they really are. oubleyawn:

I used to like Radiohead a lot, then they got too weird. At some point "art" becomes "weird" to me. They crossed that point with the last song on Amnesiac.

nice... It took me 1/2 hour to read through the Radiohead thread (that rhymes...) to find that the info I needed was the second last post: the new album will be released on CD in early 2008.

I'll wait for it on CD thanks, I don't need some crazy $80+ boxed set or the hassle of downloading tracks...

I like Radiohead quite a bit; they have really grown on me over the past couple of years.

I liked The Bends and Ok Computer, but with each release it just got harder for me to like them, and now I don't even care.

Just give me some straightforward rock and I'm a happy girl.

Kid A









Just kidding. I'd start with The Bends. It's the most accessible, to me at least.

OK Computer or The Bends are probably the most accessible...

I started with OKC and it's one of my favorites albums of all time. Exit Music into Let Down rules. So much good stuff on that album.

Mia, are you a fan of U2's "more experimental" stuff like Passengers?

Then you would probably like RH...

You have to like his voice to start, some (like my wife) find it whinny and annoying, I can see past that...

For me I have had to give them repeated listens to really get into them. Their newest album for example (Hail To The Thief), has taken me a good month to really get into...

I like that about them though, I find it very rewarding when it finally clicks but even I find some of their stuff a little too much... Like for some reason, I really don't like Pablo Honey very much, it's probably my least favorite out of all of their albums and it's the most straight-forward "rock" album...

If you try them out, I would suggest getting the albums in this order:

OK Computer
The Bends
Kid A
Amnesiac
Hail To The Thief
Pablo Honey
