  • Comment: Radiohead, stuck in a downward spiral, made this album too slow and slightly annoying. Every song seems like a repeat, and, the great Optimistic excluded, it never really takes off, like it's stuck in limbo. I still have good hopes for Amnesiac and Hail To The Thief, and here's to hoping they'll make another album like The Bends again. But why, and I do ask why, did I give How To Disappear Completely such a low score before?

  • Comment: I am now probably the only person who considers this Radiohead's weakest album, but I don't care. It's weak. Very weak. The sound has changed, has become more experimental, and has lost everything that made The Bends and even OK Computer great albums. The songs are incredibly slow, repetitive and over-all very boring. I have now lost hope for another album like The Bends.

i'm in total agreement that The Bends is superior to Ok Computer, though i'd give Pablo a little more credit, so far so good though!

I'm sure more people would give Pablo Honey a little more credit. I just wasn't impressed at all, not even by Creep (which was a good song but not as great as I was expecting).

And I personally don't think they'll beat The Bends

Great list, very commendable. I agree that "Pablo" is their weakest effort...but then again I feel "OK Computer" is their strongest album (far outshining "The Bends") and "Kid A" is vastly underrated, so...what do I know?

You know your own opinion :P

And I can guess why some people like Ok Computer and Kid A More than The Bends. The styles are just different.

Nicely put.

Thanks. It was the only way to say it without making it sound...weird
