I can't get into King of Limbs. I just can't. There's nothing to grab onto.

I'm not even sure I qualify as a Radiohead fan anymore. I suppose they're kind of the defining band of my generation (90's kid), and I've been loyal to them since I first heard "High and Dry" before the Bends came out... it seemed to have substance to it- good pop song. Though honestly at the time I thought BLUR was going to be the band that blew up.

then Radiohead happened. Now they're the standard. But I'm bored with the new shit. I've been bored for a while. Hoping for a return to form at some point, but starting to lose faith.

But remembering the good times... what's you favorite Radiohead album?

I Might Be Wrong the live album is up there for me.

Is it just me, or does the production on their albums completely limit this band? It took this video for me to completely realise this:

This.

I always thought Pablo Honey was just kind of boring. Not a terrible album, but there are far better albums by others artists that approached music is a similar way to Pablo Honey.

OK Computer
Kid A
Amnesiac

Not common for me to listen to these albums, but I really enjoy them whenever I do.

I guess I'm just barely a fan of them. I mean, I like them. But I only really listen to Kid A, which I enjoy alot. I like OK Computer and Amnesiac too, and those earlier ones. But I never listen to them, just Kid A really. Which is great haha.

The Bends and OK Computer.

Mostly cause I haven't really listened a lot to any of their other albums..

The live versions of the "King of limbs" songs are really far better in my opinion.

Radiohead are one of those bands I'd enjoy a lot more if they weren't hyped up as this perfect band that does no wrong. That and if they weren't so pretentious.

Still, they write good songs and have released good records.

The Bends
Kid A
OK Computer

Amnesiac has some of my favorite songs, but consistently I prefer those three. Pretty much the same with Hail To The Thief; Has more misses than direct hits. Didn't care for In Rainbows. Pablo Honey is generic bland modern rock of that era with some decent songs in between the rubbish. King Of Limbs is awful.

yeah, i like all of their albums.. even the King of Limbs (definitely their worst album since Pablo Honey tho), but there are other things i'd rather put on nowadays when i feel like listening to Radiohead. I Might Be Wrong is one of them.

y'know -- I like King Of Limbs quite a bit. But I agree it is one of their weakest albums most likely since Pablo Honey. So yeah. I'm not huge into Hail To The Thief either honestly. But again. It's good. Just not as great to me as all the other albums.

I'm still convinced that most of the people who think there's not much to listen to in TKOF songs are missing out a lot of the mind poisoning work hidden in those tracks.

They're at their best when they're rocking. Kid A is cool, and definitive, and blah blah, but they're really a great pop band and should stick with that.

NEway, for me it's: Hail to the Thief > OK Computer > The Bends > Kid A > all the others blend together in one long depressing drone.
