Hail to the Thief is AMAZING. If the Bends is above that for you, I have a band you may never have heard that will suit you perfectly. Coldplay.
Finally, someone who makes a list and gives Hail to the Thief the credit it deserves. I’m so sick of how many RH fans ignore that album and then have the balls to say that the bends is better. Then again it’s those same annoying people at the concerts screaming for them to play “blackstar”, but all is fair in love and Radiohead. Different strokes i guess.
And OK Computer AT NUMBER 1? No way. Yes it was the beginning to their near flawless like albums but to say that it is superior to Kid A, Amnesiac and Hail to the Thief well that is a hard pill to swallow. I am just one of those fans that think Kid A is when they really started making perfection. And lastly In Rainbows will one day be recognized as a perfect album as well. Due to the age of most of the songs on there it sounded like older material but polished to the present tense (pun intended for all fans waiting for that song).
