Thanks for all of the discussion. I think I'll go a little more in depth now.

The only thing I like about Pablo Honey is Creep.
The Bends is great for alternative fans, or Smashing Pumpkins fans.
OK Computer was their first experimental album, and really represents their complete body of work the best.
Kid A is great, but I think it overshadows OK Computer with fans too much.
Amnesiac is also very good, it has a more jazzy sound, which I respect completely.
HTTF was the last album that I listened to by them, and boy am I glad I did. It's great.
In Rainbows sounds a lot like OK Computer, but without Karma Police, No Surprises, or Paranoid Android, making it just a "meh" album for me It does have it's high points though (Reckoner, Nude).
The King of Limbs is overall, a bad album, but songs like Little by Little and Feral get a bad rap even though they would probably be loved if they were on HTTF or Kid A.

P.S. I'm a Radiohead superfan.

when people make that first statement it's hard for me to believe they've really listened to it more than once I mean


creep might not even be the best song on the album

I agree Ripcord, Vegetable, You, Anyone Can Play Guitar, and Blow Out are all just as good if not better maybe Lurgee as well. I mean it's by no means a great record, but it's certainly pretty good.

This is because I haven't heard the rest of it. Glad to be enlightened! Though, after looking up all of these songs, I still probably like Creep the best. Most of them sound like the B-Sides from The Bends, which aren't terribly good. The worst songs on Pablo Honey are about as bad as the ones from The King of Limbs. So, Radiohead came full circle in terms of quality? Maybe. Or maybe it's just that my taste lies heavily in the middle of their career, and the fringes aren't enjoyable to me.
TL;DR Thanks, but meh. I don't like their first and last album as much as the rest.

OK Computer! Back when the rest of the band seemed to have more creative input.

Favorite is OK Computer because none of the others come close in terms of cohesion..

And before anyone even goes there, yeah yeah Kid A is great and all, but the concept is not nearly as well thought out and presented.. The meandering stuff sometimes feels like it lacks purpose.

Yeah Ok Computer for me too. Closely followed by In rainbows.

The choice between Amnesiac and Kid A is tough, but ultimately I think they should've released the best songs from those recording sessions in a single batch. Idioteque and I Might Be Wrong belong on the same album! As do Pyramid Song and Everything In Its Right Place.

From the 90s, I'll take the Bends (songs) over OK Computer (production)
