    Out of those definitely get 'Kid A'.. but that is if you've already got 'Hail to the Thief'. Hm? If not, get both.

    Hmm, I haven't heard all of Hail to the Theif, but of those three I think you've made the right choice.

    Even though it's got fake plastic trees on it. It has got '[nice dream]', my iron lung, planet telex, sulk, street spirit and the title track - any of which would make up for fake plastic trees.

    I might have to listen to Amnesiac and Kid A again though. I always thought that Amnesiac was the better of those two.

    Cubby didn't know how to turn off sigs!

    I have OK Computer and Pablo Honey, and Hail to the Theif is on it's way.

    Not Amnesiac - not bad by any means, but probably the least likeable of Radiohead's albums.

    The Bends is amazing if you just want an emotional reaction to music. Kid A is better if you want to listen to it with your headphones and stroke your chin.

    Hmm.

    /strokes chin

    I'd go for the Bends, myself. It's the sort of album I'd be willing to buy again, in the sale, just because it's in the sale and I like the idea of buying it.

    Well, I think Kid A is one of the best albums ever, or at least one of the best albums of the last ten years. However, if this will be your first Radiohead album you may be better off buying The Bends or OK Computer (although that one isn't on your list). Just make sure you buy Kid A after that.

    I gave away ' the bends' because I didn't listen to it. The person I gave it to subsequently gave it away for finding it complete shite.

    This was quite a few years ago and my preferences have since changed from metal to classical music, but I don't recall it being that great. Rather boring, actually.

    if I get my hands on it I'll give it another listen.

    I'd say as a metal album, it's pretty shite. It's probably a much better classical album :)

    /Didn't really like anything they released after OK Computer

    The Bends & OK Computer are two of the best CDs I've ever heard.

    I found OK Computer to be a little... disappointing? Sure, it grew on you but it was fundamentally a bit "meh" at first...
