    It´s the best band of the last years, and one of the best of all time(IMHO). I know there are several radiohead fans out there in the JC, so I thought we could talk about Thom, Ed, Jonny, Colin and Phil, and their great music.

    Amazing music. OK Computer, KID A, and Amnesiac are three of the best albums ever IMO.

    I bought "I Might Be Wrong" but I'm not sure it was really worth it. They don't do anything different with the songs live, except speed up I Might Be Wrong (making it worse IMHO), so the songs are just less tight versions of the normal versions. This version of "True Love Waits" also lacks the keyboard...though I guess it's a good listen if you haven't heard them live.

    I love Radiohead!

    My favorite songs are "Packt Like Sardines in a Crushd Tin Box", "I Might Be Wrong", "Paranoid Android", and "How to Disappear Completely". (I listen to that one every time I'm upset about something.)

    "Amnesiac," "OK Computer", and "Kid A" never leave my car. "OK Computer" is in my car CD player right now. I'm going to have to buy a second copy of these CDs just so I'll have copies for the house. :p

    Does anyone else get dizzy listening to "Like Spinning Plates"? It's amazing what they are able to do with that song to make it have that effect on people.

    Radiohead is the most original band around in years.

    I'm more of a The Bends era fan, but I like more than my fair share of OK Computer. "Subterranean Homesick Alien" remains my favorite song on that album. Kid A and Amnesiac are nice, but I would put them on par with Pablo Honey - a few nice songs, but not my favorite by far.

    It wears me out...

    "Subterranean Homesick Alien" also remains to be my favorite OK Computer song QS, a masterpiece of drumming, lyrics and completely bizarre guitar work.

    Personally, I prefer the Amnesiac and Kid A era of the music, mainly because the rock type music of the earlier works transcends into trace type beats and electronica.
    The typical "I'm in a troubled relationship" theme of The Bends' songs gives way to darker, story driven tracks.

    I've yet to find any other band that started out writing songs about relationships that evolved into writing songs about decrepit androids and empathetic aliens.

    I love Radiohead, and especially The Bends. Fake Plastic Trees in one of their greatest songs, if you ask me.

    yup Greenplastic.com is a rockin site.

    Long live Mortigo Tempo :D

    re: True love waits - i too love the version with the keyboard loop! much much better. I also thought they could have shoved on knives out and pyramid song, both these songs sound great live i think.

    Any audiogalaxy fans here? if so how about recomeding some downloads? I recomend "Lucky - Acoustic" and "Big Ideas (don't get any) acoustic or full band version".

    :) :)

    Has anyone any idea where I can find the Radiohead cover of "Sunday Bloody Sunday"? I had the MP3 at work, but since I left, I haven't been able to find it.

    I live in a town,
    where you can't smell a thing.
    You watch your feet,

    Depends on which album you buy.

    Pablo Honey - early 90s rock
    The Bends - early/mid 90s rock, kinda dark
    OK Computer - experimental rock/electronica
    Kid A - electronica/pop rock
    Amnesiac - electronica/pop rock

    Their style is never quite the same on any of their studio albums (I can't speak for the live shows, and the b-sides are too diverse to categorize). They like to experiment with sound and beat; mixing 90s rock with surrealism. Take the best of Frank Zappa with the best of Trent Reznor with the best of AC/DC with the best of Tricky, and that would come within spitting distance of Radiohead.

    Radiohead is my second favorite band! My friend got me a Radiohead poster for Christmas, but i need to find a place to put it in my room. I personally think Kid A is their best album, but i love them all. I saw them in LA on August 20 and it was one of the greatest moments of my life! I can't wait to hear some new material from them.

    Was that really RH? I've seen that discussion on a lot of other boards and many have said it is really U2 with the Edge on vocals, so that's why it's confusing.

    One of my favorite bands at the moment. I don't care much for Pablo Honey, however. I like most of The Bends, though I don't think it's their best work. IMO, they really got going with OK Computer, which I regard as one of the best albums of all time, by anyone. I put it up there with Pet Sounds, Revolver, A Kind of Blue, and Dark Side of the Moon.

    My favourite songs are Airbag, Kid A and The Tourist and I am more partial to their OK Computer era.

    On a different note, has anyone heard of the Beta Band, Thom Yorke's favourite band?

    OK, I just bought The Bends, my first venture into a different kind of Radiohead music from the other three albums I own. I'm debating buying Pablo Honey and Knives Out. Could you guys let me know what you think of these albums? I really like Amnesiac, OK Computer, and Kid A, but I've been hearing so much about their earlier stuff that I wanted to try it.

    The Bends is my favorite Radiohead album. "High and Dry" is too, too poignant.

    It's a little like U2's Achtung Baby mixed with The Cure's Bloodflowers. A little rock, a little dark, and more than a little moving.

    Of all these wierd creatures
    who lock up their spirits,
    drill holes in themselves,
    and live for their secrets.


    And on that note, off to bed. What else can I say about long days of studying:

    They wear me out...

    EDIT- colors, lyrics, and album titles
