Makes sense. All this knowledge in response to sarcasm!

Exactly. No wonder King of Limbs (an album most bands would be lucky to have in their catalog) get so much shit.

It is funny, but I kind of agree. The more I read the less I laughed. Ok I laughed through all of it, but I also felt bad for laughing.

Yeah, I wasn't quite old enough to appreciate NIN's trajectory in real-time (though I went back to it in my teens), and I only caught the tail end of Radiohead's with some understanding. You make good points though. As far as other bands with similar three album jumps, I'm gonna throw out a personal favorite of mine - Silverchair Neon Ballroom - Diorama - Young Modern is quite an epic journey. Especially if all you remember is their early Frogstomp days.

I think that's a definite "no," at least where their legacy is concerned. If you stand back and look, is there anything about The Bends that's truly unheard of? Not at all. It's just a fantastic guitar rock album. Add to it the idea that a lot of fans long for them to go back to it (and secretly wish they would have stayed this way) and it's power increases. Their legacy is in their progression. I mentioned it below, but Radiohead's legend derives from the three punch combo of The Bends to OK Computer to Kid A. THAT'S unheard of. THAT's what shot them through the stratosphere. Just think of that: two albums after this was Kid A. What the hell?? Some obviously lament that trajectory. Everyone has their tastes, that's fine, but I tend not to respect those people's opinions too much in regards to music haha. Fan or not, this band's output is among the all-time greats.

I'm having a hard time reconciling the idea that there are faint traces of Pretty Hate Machine in everything but not Radiohead somehow. I think you're stretching it a bit because you love PHM. Haha

I think Radiohead did so much, they made it very hard to really "sound" like Radiohead without being completely obvious after a certain point. You could get away with sounding like The Bends and be fine, but aping anything after and it's blatant. I think bands followed Radiohead's ideas more than their actual sound. Elements of their ambition and appropriation are spread out all over the musical landscape. Hell, I dare say Kid A brought electronica into the indie-sphere full force. Before that you rarely, if ever, heard "indie" bands doing blips and bleeps.

Great writeup. The Bends is a fantastic album, nearly flawless. I never got around to this album until after Kid A had erased my mind and replaced it with another, so by then, I couldn't help but hear The Bends as a great rock album, but not a great Radiohead album, if that makes sense. It's context for sure. Had I heard it first, I probably would hold it in higher regard. But it is a fantastic album that is essential in appreciating the trajectory of possibly the greatest band of a generation. The Bends to OK Computer to Kid A is almost an overwhelming progression, and recognizing the power in that three album combo is the key to their greatness and legacy.

Haha that'd be funny if you really did say "sick" in '92. "Sounds like U2, only sick"

The backlash to "Go" still angers me. That (and this new one) are some of the best material she's ever put out in my opinion. I hope she can follow her gut and just make good stuff for her new album. I fear she'll let what others think get the best of her.

Ok, terrible is harsh. It is boring though.

Really? I thought that Grimes video was terrible. I like Grimes and the scenery is pretty, but watching her awkwardly dance around isn't my idea of an intriguing premise. The song is great though. I love the rest of those. That Carly Rae video made me smile so hard. http://26.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_lnf0043SAH1qb6180o1_500.gif
