Alright, but what made you think that? It's one of their more experimental offerings, less tangible, less memorable individual compositions even than their other stuff, but it has a really atmospheric, interesting, organic sound that really carries it. One of the most experimental things they've done to date, and it's an album that is really distinct, it doesn't sound like anything else in their discography. The FlyLo inspiration on Thom's part is there, certainly, but the textures and layers of sound are brilliant and subtle. I tend to listen to it in bed and it's perfect. Bloom, Little by Little, Lotus Flower, Codex, Give up the Ghost and Separator are all cracking. The only song that doesn't do it for me is Mr Magpie, but regardless, I think it's a really good album.

Really I always thought it was filled with great songs and it's only fault was it was too short and the singles that came out afterwards should have been included on the album.

The albums too repetitive, not enough variation throughout the tracks to keep me interested. Radiohead always peaked my interest because of how unpredictable they usually are, but king of limbs is so half-assed, it's laughable. 4 years after the brilliant In Rainbows and they gave us garbage, pardon me for not indulging in everything they pass off.

Hmm what about Bloom or Codex or Give Up The Ghost or Seperator or even Little By Little. They all had their own sound and every sing pretty much changes up the type of song while maintaining that woozy hazy kind of feel. It's not their best but it certainly isn't bad.

do you know something. after listen to king of lambs today i still maintain it is a good album. but after listen to it after in rainbows i was kinda disappointed. i will still have it in my top 5. see this is what i like about radiohead where every you expect them to go next they always go some where else. i would say that i think there albums are being more and more dominated by thom yorke love of electronica. as where in rainbows seemed more like a band album. if that makes sense.

I'm weird.

1. In Rainbows
2. Kid A
3. Amnesiac
4. King of Limbs
5. Hail to The Thief
6. OK Computer
7. The Bends
8. Pablo Honey

Also AMOK and Tomorrow's Modern Boxes are the bomb.

Glad so many people love Kid A! I agree it is their best. You people are so cool!

As long as Pablo Honey and King of Limbs are on the bottom, that's all that matters.
