Easily one of my all-time favorites. I enjoy their 'rock' sound more (just more my style), but they're excellent at everything they do.

Creepy. I was listening to Talking Heads when I opened your post, WondMonds.

Good band, I really dug their early stuff, the Bends is one of my all time favorite albums.

I can't find it, but someone needs to post the spoof on the "What is your favorite Radiohead album" video.

When they played guitars they had more appeal to me, they are seminal for sure, and have the warmth of Pink Floyd.

A serious band to a fault

In all honesty....

Pablo Honey 4/10
The Bends 8/10
OK Computer 9/10
Kid A 10/10
Amnesiac 8/10
Hail to the Thief 7/10
In Rainbows 10/10
The King of Limbs 6/10

TKOL was a massive disappointment for me and killed any desire for me to see them live on this tour. In Rainbows is one of the big albums in my early development of music taste.

They are one of those bands that I find myself "saving" albums to listen to in the future. I've gone over and over the big ones...Bends,OKC,KidA,InRainbows...but I can't bring myself to listen to the rest of their stuff till I have time to digest and enjoy then at some yet to be determined point.

When I do that it means I think the band is great.

I like that they kind of "brought back" the Ondes de Martenot.

Make me want to get a French Connection!

I respect your opinion....I just don't know how any of their albums can be ranked over OK Computer.....that is a top 5 or 10 album from the 90's.....and the others would have trouble saying that.....that's my HO.....

The poster of the thread is asking for people who like them, so I'll leave it at this:

Bludgeon ruffola should have been saved for Radiohead :)

"Airbag" through "Karma Police" is alt-rock perfection, but I have always been slightly underwhelmed by the second half outside of "CUTW" and "Lucky".

I'll go with the letter-grade system since this is stupid of me to post this anyway. Here's how I'd rank their albums from best to worst.
A In Rainbows - When I consider the greatness of the songs (particularly those on the bonus disc) coupled with a focus on Jonny Greenwood genius, I have to pick this as the best Radiohead album. That's also not to mention the wonderful album art. Unfortunately, it seemed like people spent more time talking about how they released it instead of how incredibly they layered the sounds.
A The Bends - Mostly for nostalgic reasons, this is my favorite Radiohead album. At times, the quality of the songs seemed compromised (probably due to the pressure of following up Pablo Honey), and I can't help but wonder how much better the album would be if it had been released more recently. But at the same time, I think it featured their best pop moments as if to say, "We've grown up quite a bit since Pablo Honey."
A OK Computer - This is understandably the favorite album of many Radiohead fans, but I would say it's possibly the most overrated. To be clear, that's not meant as a knock--t's an excellent album all the way through--but I feel like some of the ideas should've been developed more. Still, it's considered one of the most important releases of all-time for good reason.
A Kid A - This album features some of Radiohead's best moments (I don't know many artists that can top "Idioteque"), and I admire how groundbreaking it was. On the other hand, it didn't "capture" me in as many ways as some of their other stuff.
A Hail to the Thief - I wasn't immediately enamored with this record, but it kept growing on me the more I listened to it. Maybe I'll like it less/more in the future, but at the moment, I feel like it's up there with their best (although I skip a couple tracks on most listens).
A- The King of Limbs - It blows my mind that there are people out there who liked their previous albums but didn't like this one. I'd recommend that those people give it another listen because they were probably just disappointed with the direction they went. Musically, it struck me as their most collaborative effort and shifted the focus away with Thom Yorke. That might not seem like a good thing, but I thought they sounded more natural and helped enable the songs to flow well from one to the next.
B Amnesiac - This is my least favorite of theirs. I've heard it called "Kid B", and as much as I loved Kid A, it just seemed like a not-quite-as-good version of it. I'm probably a little harsher on this record than I should be, but I fell in love with their ability to change their sound, and they didn't do that here as much as I would have liked.
C+ Pablo Honey - It's a good album that I used to hate but have come around to respect. When I was younger, I didn't "get" music like I do today, but now that I've grown up a bit, I still have to admit there are some boring moments. I certainly didn't expect them to improve as much as they did, but in hindsight, I shouldn't have been so surprised because there were definitely some incredible moments.

'Electioneering' is like the best Muse song I've ever heard...

They were on Austin City Limits this weekend where I am and it was awesome. I also saw them live this year. They are crazy good at their profession. I love seeing their commitment to art, which many try to do and almost all fail. They've made it and are clearly not phoneys.

The Bends was a much better album.
