1. King of Limbs

Represents a band maturing and exploring musical paths without pressure. It's more of a "record" record than In Rainbows, especially with the Codex/ Give Up The Ghost/ Separator outro. It's beautiful. Waking from a long and weary dream.

2. Kid A

One of the greatest records of all time, and a land-mark in Radiohead's evolution as a band. It's all been said.

3. OK Computer

Generally I would say it's this or In Rainbows for 3rd place. Both are similar albums, just a stellar collection of great songs. STELLAR collection. OK Computer I like more though for the lyrics.

4. In Rainbows

Brilliant.

5. Amnesiac

I think many people love this one as much as the other albums, but unless you try to sound original, this usually falls low in the ranking. Why? Pulk/ Pull and Hunting Bears. Those tracks are pretty fucking cool though. Amnesiac also has two of RH's undeniable best songs: Pyramid Song, and Life in a Glass House. However if I want to listen to one of their records, Amnesiac usually wouldn't be first choice, unless I'm really in that Amnesiac mood.

6. The Bends

Fucking great album. A capsule of Radiohead during simpler recording days. One or two weak songs, but no, pretty much all of them are great.

7. Hail to the Thief

HttT is pompous and the tracks are poorly ordered, but that's part of the record's charm. Many great songs on it. That sums up Hail to the Thief.

8. Pablo Honey

Least interesting record. Nothing wrong with it though, and it's excellent for the band's starting point. Blow Out and Creep are still being played during live tours, so this album had something good going for it.

I understand when dumbasses don't like Pablo Honey and they're like "bitch please Blow Out is the only worthy track in that shit", but people who leave it out and only consider their next 7 records, are just plainly ignorant and can go burn in hell.

And that's my rant about rankings.

i am so full of loathing im so sorry

it's just jeremy.com
a babby website

i think jeremy has met all of them. it will be funny when he crosses the second to last mter off his list, an dthe final one is written ''foppe-henk''. and i will manage to elude him at first, as i get a head start when i hear of jeremy's rumored list. i forget abotu him eventually; and then in my travels to the antarctic, to learn of the native animals, jeremy springs from the icewater. he seizes my wrist and forces my thumb against a thin glass capsule filled with ink. the glass breaks, the ink spoils over my thumb, and very soon after my fingerprint is mine only no more.

ugh i wanna be a plane

It's okay bro. Nobody will judge you here. Not your bad. Radiohead had been making bad decisions since 1992. -_-

um, pablo honey really doesn't compare with what came after. i mean, yes it should be included in the list if you're gonna rank em, cuz its one of the group, but i can't imagine any list where it would place anywhere but last.

course they are. probably always will.

but creep and blow out can't really lift the album over any of the ones that came after.

well, some songs on a lower rated album are far better than the above ex:
Spinning Plates is superior to Electioneering i my taste
