Pretty overhyped band, and I myself am a pretty hardcore fan. Adore OKC, adore 5-star albums KidA and In Rainbows, and do enjoy Amnesiac and HTTT from time to time. The Bends is bollocks though.

Horribly overrated. Some good ideas, they just don't use them as well as they could. Kid A is their only album that is decent all the way through, I think.

it's interesting to me how any band can be considered over-rated on this website, when reminded that this place is actually about u2.

They are experimental garbage...sorry i had to get that off my chest.
You're right, they have no relation. Radiohead's recent output is actually good.

Well, I obviously disagree with the notion that Radiohead are crap, as I enjoy most of their output. However, I do think it's fair to say that they are overrated at times, especially here.

Will someone lock this thread, please? We don't need some generic, trolling, and useless "criticism" of a obviously important and respected band cluttering up the forum.

This easily could have been posted in the In Rainbows discussion thread, where it would be equally ridiculed and dismissed as CRAP.
You sure do get riled up over nothing at times, laz.

Parts of this reply were very inappropriate. Simmer down, please. If you disagree with the opinion of another person, there are nicer ways to present your argument. I also find that if you want to debate something, doing it in a nicer way is a lot more effective.

They're alright. made some good songs, made some bad songs. fair play to them for trying to change their sound and experiment. They are somewhat overhyped though.

Sorry, but this really came off as trolling to me, and as I said, we have a clear thread about Radiohead already active and on the first page.

"They are crap...I feel that people say they like them to feel sophisticated and have a "good taste" in music. They are experimental garbage." That doesn't sound like baiting? It's as insulting as ANYTHING I responded with. I was just called a poseur, and don't appreciate it in the slightest.

If this had been some actual critique I wouldn't have responded so harshly, as I'm not some kind of rabid fan that finds no fault with the band.

The original poster deserves some kind of reprimand as well, for making what is essentially a post screaming "RADIOHEAD SUCKS!!!" and then running away? Certainly that's not the point of this music discussion forum.
