    Doesn't matter what year it is. A great song is a great song. The Bends is arguably the best album they ever made, although you could make a strong argument for OK Computer. Song-for-song, it's one of the best of the past 20 years.

    The Bends is overrated.

    I agree. It's actually my least favorite of their albums, disregarding Pablo Honey.

    Uh, yeah it does, considering that Radiohead is pretty much now an electronica/experimental rock band, they'll never go back to the breezy alternative rock of Pablo Honey and The Bends.

    It was good, but I get tired of hearing about that album from fans who want a return to that old guitar rock. Everything they've done since has been far more interesting.

    Interesting does not equal great, though. Pretty much every song on The Bends is great. That's what determines if an album is good or not: a lot of great songs, and few-to-no bad ones.

    This is exactly how I feel.
    MacGuffin, you're my new best friend.

    Your saying this from the perspective of a casual listener. To Radiohead fans, what they released post-The Bends has been far more amazing. OK Computer, Kid A, hell, even Hail to the Thief is better than The Bends.

    Pablo Honey and The Bends are quite different, and it still does not matter which year it is. It will always be the same sounds coming through the speakers. I can listen to music without putting any biases of what has come later into the equation. Look at Black Eyed Peas. They'll never go back to the pre-Fergie pleasant, positive party-rap they used to make. I really wish they would, though, because they are atrocious now. Or Paul McCartney. His crappy solo stuff doesn't make The Beatles less good. Neither does Elliot Smith's great solo stuff make Heatmiser particularly great. I just don't think Radiohead got better post-OK Computer. Kid A was great, Amnesiac less so, Hail to the Thief not great, and In Rainbows a nice rebound.

    Don't tell me I am a "casual listener." I was listening to Radiohead before you were in kindergarten, and I have seen them twice. I totally disagree with your assessment. Many people I know would agree with me.
