:wow:

ok computer is dope but Kid A is prolly their best album

maybe it's just because i'm such a dark brooding emo fakkit

lol...OK Computer is even more dark and brooding than Kid A to me. The whole concept is supposed to be from the perspective of some depressed guy living in a dystopian police state.

I like The Bends 2nd best...Kid A 3rd.

yeah, thematically ok computer was radiohead at their darkest....but the reason it's so revered is because they incorporated those themes of despair and isolation over catchy pop rhythms

kid a had the same feel to it, only with the music to match :manny:

i don't really care for traditional cac rock, which is more or less what the bends is, but i've grown to appreciate a few tracks from it.....fake plastic trees, street spirit and the acoustic version of black star are classics

Charmander fukking with Radiohead huh :dwillhuh: No love for Hail to the THief ? so fukking underrated man, how dare you leave that shyt out.

Punchup at a wedding and There There >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

OK Computer is a top 10 album ever for me. Climing up the Walls would make a perfect hip hop sample, that Banks track doesnt do it justice either so dont go mentioning that.

@charmander, you should start fukking with Tool, the Smashing Pumpkins too if you like Radiohead.
