    Yeah King of Limbs produced some better live tunes, the studio album just falls flat in comparison.

    They have been recording on and off ever since KoL came out... So I'm hoping September will just be the start of the final phase and we will see some kind of release in the first half of 2015

    Ok Computer and Kid A are kind of equal for me.

    Ok is hugely important to me as it came out at a time when I was pretty disillusioned with life in general after moving from London to live in a small country town where I knew no one, didn't like the people I had sort of fallen in with at my new college and didn't know what I wanted to do with my life.

    It's one of those rare perfect albums where each track is unique in it's own right and there is no filler tracks on the album. Each track feels necessary and important in the grand scheme of the album, and at the time, that really spoke to me. Still to this day if I'm feeling a bit bleak or pissed off with the world I can stick on Ok Computer and just feel this connection to it and it's message.

    Kid A is just a masterpiece of music that perfectly reflects a band being pulled apart and slowly rebuilding themselves as something they want to be, rather than what their army of fans and the music industry wanted them to be. Again, it's a perfect album which flows from one track to the next perfectly, and as much as everyone calls it experimental, I don't really think it is. It just is what it is, a dark follow on to the pessimistic view of our world that Ok Computer was, where Yorke and Co. come to the conclusion that our world is always going to be messed up regardless of what you do, so you might as well just let the madness swallow you.
    Great read. Nice to hear albums that have a personal attachment to people in regards to their life circumstances at the time, especially the likes of Kid A and especially OK Computer. OK Computer is my second favourite, but they are a few tracks that I loved that on that album I listened to during bad times back then.

    I was spending a lot of time on the motorway when Ok Computer came out, and it made driving a much more enjoyable experience. I did not get to a point of being bored of listening to it, even when I had it on three times in a row.

    Hollering along to Subterranean Homesick Alien and Karma Police really helped the miles go by.

    Easily my favourite album by anyone, ever.

    OK Computer is also one of the most spectacularly produced albums ever. There are so many levels to the music in each song and subtle production ideas that help reinforce how epic the whole album is.

    The one which comes to mind for me is the final two minutes of Let Down, where Yorke is signing two different verses, one in the left stereo, the other in the right, and then as he reaches the chorus both voices merge together effortlessly.

    There are wonderful little things like that in each track. And don't get me started on the wonderful artwork...

    The way Karma Police lifts at the 'For A Minute There...' is spectacular.

    Kid A is my favourite Radiohead album and my first. I will definitely agree that KOL comes alive live but for me it's not as satisfying to listen to as their other albums. I appreciate the songs on a technical level but the album just feels a bit piecemeal as a whole.

    Excited about a new album as always though.

    Kid A and In Rainbows are tied for me. Both completely different, but both are iconic albums that will hopefully live on for a long time.

    New album coming is there?

    The Bends is my favourite. I'm pretty sure I own all their albums, havent given The King ofnLimbs enough time yet.

    Some of the remixes that Yorke commissioned various electronic artists to do for KoL tracks were also more interesting than the original album version and some of them sounded like they should have been made by Radiohead as well.

    It just felt like a very lacklustre album from them. Which is a shame considering how long we have to wait now a days for new material from them.

    TBF, we've always had to wait for Radiohead albums. Nothing new in that.

    Hopefully KoL will prove to be a low point and spark something different with the next. I thought they were moving in a(nother) new direction with In Rainbows, but KoL felt a regression to the Kid A-Amnesiac-HTTT era. Whilst I love Kid A and enjoy the others, I'd welcome something a little different with their next...

    Why look, it's a blog:

    Get a feeling that Radiohead will go in tandem with what sort of sound is vogue in the electronic world. With Kid A, it was all IDM. King Of Limbs took its cue from bass, UK funky and the Flying Lotus sound (kind of compounded with Flying Lotus touring with Yorke).

    Sorry, Thommy.

    Would love a new Radiohead album.

    Same, as long as it's not as dull as KoL. How could they create that after the excellent In Rainbows? Johnny Greenwood needs to pick up a guitar and melt my face off.

    Hah, when's he ever done that? Not even in the early days.

    As ever: KoL wasn't the best, but live some of those songs are superlative. I absolutely adore Bloom.

    The new single is growing on me already. Not instantly amazing, but i'm liking the noises. Would love to hear how he plans to perform it live.

    @RedSparrows

    Eh? He did it occasionally (Paranoid Android, The Bends, My Iron Lung, Just) and those songs were all the better for it. Unless that was Ed?

    Saw them perform some of the KoL songs live and I still couldn't get on with it - apart from Codex and possibly Separator it's totally throwaway. For me, the first half of that album is the worst stretch they've ever had (save maybe Pablo Honey).

    Hey, let's not forget Philip Selway has a new album out next week too. Seems very similar to the last one, which is no bad thing in my book.

    Honestly - can't think of a poorer run. What do you think's worse?

    Pablo Honey is way worse. Not just saying that as a 'cuh, guitar Radiohead? Urgh' wanker, I love the Bends and OK.

    Give up the Ghost and Codex are exquisite, and Bloom is a kaleidoscope of everything. Three belters. The rest vary for me, but still good.

    As for 'melting my face', you're right, I guess - they did pull out some pretty good guitar from time to time, but I suppose I've never thought of them as that kind of band - not like, say, Rage. The guitar was always part of the song, not some entity sent down to dominate it. That and they've moved away from that a lot, although HTTF of course had 2+2, etc.

    Face melter was definitely the wrong term - I just like an old-fashioned guitar freakout. Greenwood is such a good guitarist it pains me to see him on the keyboards/something electronic most of the time.

    Thought they struck the perfect balance with old/new on In Rainbows and then KoL dropped and showed they'd moved back to the 'electronic' extreme. Don't have a problem with this (Kid A is my favourite album of theirs) but the quality just wasn't there for me. Seemed like they were following the current trend instead of forging it.

    Pablo is indeed the worse but I thought we didn't count that one? :D

    This is how it goes:

    In Rainbows > Kid A > OK Computer > Amnesiac > HTTF > KOL > The Bends > Pablo Honey

    The Bends needs moving about three places to the left.

    Top 3 matches up with mine, albeit in the wrong order.

    In Rainbows is their crowning glory. Even the bonus (disc) is amazing. If they'd held onto that and glued on the final four tracks from TKOL they've had very nearly equalled it.

    I wish I had the In Rainbows bonus disc still. I had the deluxe box set, but sold it for a ton before xmas that year. The disk rip I made of the bonus album is long gone : (

    You can buy a digital version of the bonus disc from their website. It's about 6 I think. Well worth it.
