I've always said that.

In fact I like it more than all their albums.

I like guitar pop, even when it's not ground-breaking...

It was recorded during the same sessions as Kid A and has a similar sound. I like it, but I also like Kid A.

Kid A will be good as long as Idioteque, Everything In Its Right Place, and National Anthem exist.

I thought Kid A was ridiculously boring when I first listened to it. But after years of all my friends practically blowing it (which looked really wierd), I listened to it again. A few tracks stuck, but I was still dissatisfied. This happens with me about every 4-6 months. Ive owned Kid A for about 3 years now, and Im finally beginning to take a liking to it (though I still prefer OK Computer and The Bends). Its the ultimate "grower" of an album for me in terms of sheer length of time it took for me to like it.

What I liked about Kid A was that I was able to hear good Radiohead songs without having wade through godawful attempts at "rocking out".

Agreed, especially The National Anthem


It also took me while to actually like the album after my first listen the only song I liked was Optimistic. But I still like Ok Computer and The Bends better too.
