    I never understood the public thing. Where would you end up seeing who people voted for anyway?

    i voted for kid a since the question was Best album. in my opinion it is by far there best, most influential, and challenging work.

    as for favorite i would have to say in rainbows, simply because that album has grown into me...

    I voted amnesiac. In Rainbows and Kid A are my personal faves at the moment, but long term I think amnesiac is their best work personally.

    Computer. That album changed the way I listen to music. I simply cannot listen to Radiohoad on a crappy stereo anymore. There's so much spatial depth to OK Computer....it's quite beautiful.

    I cant really choose because it just really depends on my mood. But for the sake of the poll i chose Ok Computer. I also don't see why so many people hate Pable Honey. Its definitely not close to their best but it still isn't a bad record.

    Kid A.

    Hail to the Thief & In Rainbows have been growing on me a lot lately.

    Kid A for me as well.

    In Rainbows is growing on me, I think almost tied with OK Computer.

    I'm constantly surprised by the love for In Rainbows...

    Not that it's bad, but I feel Radiohead could have made that album in their sleep

    I can't make an informed decision without listening to all of their albums again.

    I must make the sacrifice.

    Wow, this crowd swings young. Most people my age would say OK Computer or The Bends, easily. Less experimental, but the songs were just more inspired. I like OK Computer better as a cohesive statement, but "Fake Plastic Trees" or "Street Spirit (fade out)" are probably their best songs, and they're both on The Bends.

    I quite like In Rainbows... much better than Hail to the Thief.

    All of their albums have song that I love, obviously.
    Kid A, i think is their best.
    Ok Computer is my fave.
    In Rainbows, has really grown on me. (then again I haven't stopped listening to it since it came out.)

    Do you agree with this review of KidA? I don't, but i wanted opinions..


    Instead of simply adding club beats or sonic collage techniques, Radiohead strive to incorporate the unsettling "intelligent techno" sound of Autechre and Aphex Twin, characterized by its skittering beats and stylishly dark sonic surfaces, for Kid A. To their immense credit, Radiohead don't sound like carpetbaggers, because they share the same post-postmodern vantage point as their inspirations. As a result, Kid A is easily the most successful electronica album from a rock band — it doesn't even sound like a rock band, even if it does sound like Radiohead. So, Kid A is an unqualified success? Well, not quite. Despite its admirable ambition, Kid A is never as visionary or stunning as OK Computer, nor does it really repay the time it demands. OK Computer required many plays before revealing the intricacies of its densely layered mix; here, multiple plays are necessary to discern the music's form, to get a handle on quiet, drifting, minimally arranged songs with no hooks. Of course, the natural reaction of any serious record geek is that if the music demands so much work, it must be worth it — and at times, that supposition is true. But Kid A's challenge doesn't always live up to its end of the bargain. It's self-consciously alienating and difficult, and while that can be intriguing, it seems deeper than it actually is. Repeated plays dissipate the mystique and reveal a number of rather drab songs (primarily during the second half), where there isn't enough under the surface to make Radiohead's relentless experimentation satisfying. But mixed results are still results, and about half of the songs positively shimmer with genius.

    I totally think IR is a better album, as do a lot of people I know. Personally, HTTT was a huge letdown for me.

    Neither is their best.

    Tough choice, but I had to go with Amnesiac. Both Kid A and Amnesiac really go hand in hand. They're taken from the same studio sessions, right? The Bends might be the most consistent all the way through, though...
