I haven't listened to the Basement thingy, though I've heard some TKOL tracks live, and they didn't really impress there either, so as much I as I don't like the production, I think the songs are really not to my taste. But maybe I should check it out anyway.

"Thom Yorke has threatened to "sue the living ****" out of David Cameron if the prime minister uses a Radiohead song in a future election campaign."

OK Computer is a great album, it's the first one I heard from Radiohead. First song off of the album I heard was "Let Down", I was hooked after that.

Sorry I was so late; AMOK has leaked. I'm making my final preparations for my first listen right now.

A newer member here, and without reading the thread, it seems I am one of the few that actually like TKOL, although with the caveat that I listen to it on my home system cranked up. I hated the album when I first got it listening in my car and PMP only to discover it came to life (for me) when given the benefit of my home system.

It showed me just how much of a difference a good amp, good speakers, and lossless audio can make.

TKOL is more than sound, too, but when I bundle it with the extra tracks they've put out since its release, it makes for a nice album and a fairly radical departure from what In Rainbows had been and similar to the way Kid A departed from the OK Computer sound. Then again, I've always been considered weird by friends who don't understand why my favorite Radiohead albums are Kid A and Amnesiac (and TKOL now) rather than the Bends, OK Computer, or In Rainbows.

Kid A and Amnesiac have never gotten old to me while the other three albums have not aged well for my ears. The Bends and OK Computer sound a bit dated to me now. My brother-in-law thinks TKOL, Kid A, and Amnesiac will only appeal to people who like Electronic or Jazz music. He may be right.

Nah, I don't listen to electronic music or jazz, and I love Kid A, so he's wrong. :p What do you mean by dated, though? I find both The Bends and Kid A to be kind of timeless. Great production and sweet songs can never grow old, in my opinion.

OKC drags for me, but the Bends is just a nice, fun album, good for road trips and such. I agree that TKOL was a pretty nice departure; some critics complained that it just wasn't different enough, but I thin they were just caught off guard by it. I mean, it's pretty hard to be as radical as Kid A, but it only had one song that really resembled anything of the past, and that was Codex. IR, on the other hand, sounded very much like upbeat HTTT, yet it garnered great acclaim, especially over TKOL.

i probably already said this
