Methinks I would get along very well with the Washington State folks in this thread.
Rattler - Pure - Jokeri || Fuse - Roc || Gazelle - xXx || PD - Pred || Wraith

Often found in the bag as well: ZXS (thumbers), S-TD, QOLF instead of S-PD, Flow (still trying it out)

Agreed. I think In Rainbows is badass but it probably ranks fourth for me: Kid A > Amnesiac > O.K. Computer > In Rainbows > The Bends > Pablo Honey. This is just my opnion and YMMV. In Rainbows does get mega props for being distributed for free online (even though the quality was pretty poor...)

Ya, I forgot that Kid A was released in 2000; for some reason, I thought it was earlier. I do agree, it's better than In Rainbows, but is probably the 2nd best album they released in the 00's. Amnesiac has some great songs, but isn't as cohesive. Kid A is a masterpiece.

I really love everything that Radiohead has ever put out, but I think In Rainbows trumps the other 2000s offerings because it is innovative while still catching the organic, accessible sound missing on those other albums that is what made OK Computer so genius.

at the drive-in - relationship of command - for me this one is no contest

Mars volta - Deloused in the comatorium - true player album, amazing from start to finish...wish they could have kept this standard in their later releases

Radiohead - in Rainbows


Forgot about this one:

Death from Above 1979 - Youre a woman, I'm a Machine

scratch In Rainbows although it is brilliant too.

I actually like the cold, barren feeling of Kid A. The fact that the feeling continues though the entire album is what makes it so fantastic. But I think In Rainbows is an easier listen. I have to be in the mood to listen to all of Kid A. I can throw In Rainbows on anytime and listen to it.

That's what I mean by accessibility.

When I play Kid A for friends, they say, "Okay, so some Britpopper got ahold of a drum machine and some effects." When I play In Rainbows, they say, "Wow that sounds just like this part of this song by some other crappy band . . . but better" Then I show them how In Rainbows came out first and they were playing some of this stuff live for the past few years, and they realize that there are tons of bands out there aping (apeing?) aspects of that album.

One of the other things I see is how many covers of tracks from In Rainbows are being played by disparate bands.

Kid A is sweet, Amnesiac extends that, I like Hail to the Thief even more, but In Rainbows is the only one on par (to me) with OK Computer, the band's best work.

3. I'll edit when I figure it out.



I've been thinking about it for a few days, and I've decided that I can't decide.

Kid A is one of those albums I appreciate for art's sake. Much like "Return to Cookie Mountain" by TV on the Radio.

I remember the first time I heard 15 Step off of In Rainbows. You hear the drum machine, and think you've heard Radiohead do stuff like this before, but when that guitar kicks in, I had the widest grin on my face...

Of course, Kid A seems like a pop album accessible to teenie boppers compared to what I listed as my 2nd album of the 00's (Frances the Mute).
