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.
    I and every other Radiohead fan pretty much (not to mention every critic and music publication) believe they did get better post-The Bends, I hate to say it, but you're just being difficult.

    I like Hail to the Thief a lot.

    When I listen to my Radiohead playlist, I usually skip over The Bends to get to the good stuff.

    I am not being difficult, and you're not correct. There are plenty of people who loved The Bends and OK Computer who were down with Kid A but didn't dig the later stuff as much.

    I am just as correct as you are. There are plenty of more people who enjoy their later stuff than people like you who just enjoyed their "more accessible works."

    I care not a bit for accessibility. It's all about the strength of the songs. I took issue with your notion that most critics think the band got better after OK Computer. That is simply not true.

    Yes, it is. And I'm sick of arguing with you. Feel free to stop replying on my threads if all you're going to do is start meaningless and pointless debates. That's not why I started this thread, I started it to discuss whether or not Wall of Ice will actually be released on 17 August, NOT to discuss whether or not Radiohead became a better band after OK Computer, which I personally believe is true in many ways.

    OT: I hate Rolling Stone magazine.

    "Rolling Stone initially gave the album an average rating." Now they give it 5 stars. They did the same to Led Zep in the beginning too. They also go out of their way to fellate every Baby Boomer act that puts out a middling album as a glorious return to form.

    Fuck Rolling Stone.

    You can't expect to express an opinion and not have someone disagree. I just provided ample evidence that OK Computer was the most critically-lauded Radiohead album, followed by The Bends and then Kid A and In Rainbows. You are free to disagree with their assessments, but you don't get to make claims about critical unanimity when the facts don't support them.
