It really is I saw them in Manchester in November and was surprised how well the HTTT tracks sounded live.

Pablo is rough. OK & The Bends are smooth - classics

Kid A, Amnesiac & HTTT could have been produced by a completely different band. They are comparatively difficult to get into but interesting none the less. You have got to persist.

If you do get into Radiohead. Take a look at the "7 television commercials" DVD. It contains 7 videos from OK and the Bends. I got it from CDWOW for £6.49 (using £2.50 off vouchers).

Don't bother with the "Meeting people is easy" DVD. I saw this rocumentary on TV once and was disappointed.

I agree with Crouching Tiger.

I had HTTT for several months and only listened to it with the fast forward button on. I then saw them at Glastonbury and was totally blown away. The power, the energy and the emotion of the stuff they do reaches a completely new level live. I then went and saw them another twice later in the year. I used to think they were very overated, now they are one of my favourite bands!

Like I said earlier in this thread, I recommend trying to get hold of a live recording from last year and I am sure that even the cynical will be converted.

I saw radiohead live in 2001 in oxford. The Kid A and amenisac stuff sounded much better live.
They are a great band. Just hard to get into if you've not seen them live.

The recent stuff is much better live with the exception of Hail To The Thief, which is pretty live in the first place, like The Bends and OK Computer.

Hail To The Thief has some nice bits but the ending just seems to dribble away and I usually can't really be bothered listening much after track 10 or 11. The first two tracks are great, as is the Neil Young-apeing "Go To Sleep".

picked up My Iron Lung EP for £6 at Borders (with student discount)

these early Radiohead songs dont sound very good quality though, needs some remastering

no wonder my MP3 didnt sound too good.

Sound okay to me, but then I'm used to it I guess. My MP3's sound good, though.

Still reckon Knives Out is a rip off of the fabulous 'Trickster' myself.

I can't believe it's 15 years since Kid A was released!

Hated it when I first heard it and love it to bits now, but then I thought the same of OK Computer.

It's aged amazingly well I think.

Indeed it has. Was way ahead of its time.

I remember climbing over the school gates at lunch to go buy this at Woolworths during my lunch break. Getting back and showing my mates the secret booklet with the Tony Blair picture.

Got home and didn't know how I felt about it. Quite a big departure from OK (although not really once you listen to the B-sides). After repeated plays I grew to love it.

This is the one Radiohead album I would most likely to listen to today. Also a big fan of Amnesiac too.

I still don't like it.
Hail to the Thief and In Rainbows are masterpieces, though.

Same here, Kid A and Amnesiac are both awesome, I'd put them on a par with OK Computer which is as high praise as I can give.

It's the insightfulness that gets me. They cut right through the waffle and get right down to the hard talk.

Possibly ColinP should see if he they could come on as a reviewer?
