King Of Limbs isn't that bad. I would listen to it over Pablo Honey everyday. And the complaint about the repetitive songs has nothing to do with the songs on the album sounding like each other, it means that the songs themselves have repetitive song structures. As in a sound effect starting the beginning of the song and lasting until the end of the song, NEVER CHANGING. I liked the record upon first listen but it's sorta gone stale for me. That doesn't mean that the record isn't solid, it's just forgettable. I would give it like a 6.5/10 and maybe a 7/10 on a good day.

Also I noticed a lot of fans like Amnesiac a lot?? It's probably my second least favorite (King Of Limbs is my least favorite). I hate to be that kind of guy but it just sounds like leftovers from Kid A.





You're damn right I said it.

This list is a real struggle to make. OK Computer and Kid A are the top two, but their positions are questionable, and it just doesn't feel right to not include In Rainbows, the Bends, Hail AND Amnesiac in the top 3 because they are all so incredible saying one is radiohead's sixth best album doesn't really do it justice...radiohead is just that good.

This is exactly my list (I guess earlier in the thread I had Amnesiac and HTTT switched, but whatever, I disagree with that now anyway).

I think I've changed my mind and decided that Amnesiac is #1. Their darkest and most experimental, it's so raw and mangled, with clattering acoustic parts and glitchy low-fi beats; it really gets under your skin. I'd argue there's a bit more character to it than overall than Kid A... it's a close call though. And Life in a Glasshouse is their best finisher ever.

This is absolutely true. Might be their best song, period.
