Okay, so I have made several posts here about my passionate hatred for Radiohead and the unabashed fellatio they receive from most music critics. I got Hail to the Thief and it all just seemed so pretentious. Fast forward about 6 months...

I put on Hail to the Thief again..."2+2=5" just blows me away, and "There There" is just incredible. There are a few others as well, but then I bought OK Computer to see if it was the real deal.

This was about the first week in January...so now it's Feb 1, and I own all major studio albums except for Pablo Honey, and the other 5 are probably in my top 30 as far as all albums I own. I got on this Radiohead kick and I haven't stopped all month. It's just crazy.

So since we haven't had a Radiohead topic in 2-3 months, give me your SINGLE favorite song..tough since they have done so much top-notch stuff, but I say...

"How to Disappear Completely"....so emotional, so picturesque...it's just incredible.

How bout everyone else? Anybody else had this experience with other bands?

It depends on what you like. If you're into more guitar-type stuff, The Bends is really good...not as creative as OK Computer though.

If you don't mind some electronic stuff, you should get Kid A.

I think that right now, Kid A is my favorite album. Amnesiac would be if they would've taken out "Pulk/Pull Revolving Doors" and put one of the really damn good B-sides in there instead.

kid a is one of the most emotional songs i've ever heard. strange because the lyrics are gibberish, and the song is pretty minimal, but i got that album in a horrible time in my life and it really strikes a chord with me, almost to the point of tears.

exit music, let down, and karma police are three of the greatest songs ever, oddly placed right next to each other on the greatest album ever made.

I picked up the Kid A book version the other day but can't say I listened to Radiohead in the last year. I lost interest.

These two plus A Wolf at the Door (Hail to the Thief) and Paranoid Android (OK Computer) are brilliant pieces of music. Radiohead are geniuses. All their music rules. The lyrics on A Wolf are extremely well done.

I can't decide which one of these means more to me right now, but...

Backdrifts - not sure why but this track has always been one of my favourites. There's nothing to this other than the music though, i just think it's a really good song

Morning Bell - Maybe it's just because it's near the end of the album and is a create 'outro' for Idioteque but i always get shivvers when this track starts playing. Kid A is an important album for me, sentimentally, so the effect of this song is pretty influential

Knives Out - Again, not really sure why, just liked it from the first time i heard it, it's the only one i remembered properly after listening to Amnesiac for the first time and it has seemed to keep it's grip ever since.

I like pretty much all of Kid A, the album. It's just amazing. I like the free jazz sample they have in "National Anthem", because it's really awesome. Also that one... "Exit Music for a Film". Rocks my boxxorz off.

I really love There There. I wrote a piece of fiction that intertwined the mood and lyrics of this song into it, and I guess it just kinda means a little extra to me now because of it.

I can't pick a favorite Radiohead song, so I'll just say No Surprises, since that song got me into their music and through some bad days.
