OK Computer, easily. I think Kid A is one of the most overrated albums of all time, and even though I still think it's a perfectly good album the fact that every fan seems to think it's the most experimental, unique alt rock album of all time always sours my opinion of it a little for some reason. I would compare the way Radiohead fans act about Kid A and "Everything In Its Right Place" to the way Tool fans talk about Lateralus and the title track of that album. Both are still really good albums and even two pretty damn great singles. I just don't think they're as special as the hype would lead one to believe.

Radiohead fans are annoying, to put it mildly. To listen to those dullards, music makers from Can to Pixies to ****ing Shostakovich are "precursors" to their idols, who apparently represent the realization of the musical Weltgeist on earth.

(Haven't met a single one who wasn't crazy about OK Computer btw)

But some of the records are very good.

Of course OK Computer is their best album. It's also the greatest album of the nineties.

Second best album (if you're curious)- Amnesiac.

I'll check that dictionary, but in the meantime I'm impressed - as is everyone else in the world - by your eloquence, obvious accomplishments and success, and the evidence of your blazingly high intelligence.

What's wrong with OK Computer or Amnesiac or In Rainbows?

That's a pretty great assessment Tristan, have you considered writing music reviews professionally?
