RADIOHEAD FROM WORST TO BEST
This is a debate my friends and I have in person all the time. It's a topic I could discuss forever so feel free to chime in.
- •PABLO HONEYThis is not even up for debate. If it appears anywhere but the bottom of your list then you are Radioheading wrong.
- •THE BENDSI love this album. It beats the brakes off of most things that came out in the 90s. Their discography is so strong that an album that gets that much praise still comes in at #7. Arguably better than The King of Limbs, but they were still a guitar driven then and they almost don't even seem like the same band today.
- •THE KING OF LIMBSI was a little disappointed when this one came out given that it was only eight songs and that there were no immediate standouts besides "Lotus Flower." Saw them on this tour though and seeing the material live took it up quite a few notches in my opinion.
- •HAIL TO THE THIEFThe album of theirs that is most unfairly maligned. It has some of my favorite songs though: "A Drunken Punch Up at a Wedding," "Myxamatosis," "2+2=5," and many, many more.
- •AMNESIAC"Pyramid Song" might be be my favorite song of theirs. Some people condescendingly refer to this album as "Kid A throwaways," but it's spectacular in its own right.
- •IN RAINBOWSSo many great songs on this one like "Videotape," "Weird Fishes," "All I Need," etc. This is the most straightforward material they've put out in a long time, but it is incredible stuff.
- •KID ANobody knew what to make of this when it came out, but songs like "Idioteque," "Everything in Its Right Place," etc. are some of the best they've ever made. This album showed that they weren't content to sit on the success of OK Computer and would continue to push themselves to great heights.
- •OK COMPUTEROK Computer is **THE** album of the 90s in my opinion. With the emergence of new technologies, people started feeling a bit more alien and nobody expressed this feeling of being adrift at sea better than Radiohead. The entire thing is a classic from start to finish. Not even a hint of a weak song anywhere. Most bands would've done well to write one of these songs in their entire career and they created an album full of brilliance here.
