I just wanted to revive this absolute masterpiece of a thread. If there's was an @U2 Forum Hall of Fame, this would be in there.

I suspect many Radiohead fans would stand by firmly by the band even if they released 40 minutes of a car alarm for their next record.

King of Limbs is to me a fantastic, beautiful and deeply clever record....I can however see why some people wouldn't appreciate it.

I concur, I just love the minimalism of it.  Bloom is as fantastic an opener as any in their impressive catalogue and what a thrill it was live.  This record truly came alive when they performed it live, the From the Basement session is brilliant stuff.  I quite love Morning Mr. Magpie, Lotus Flower, Give Up the Ghost and Separator.  The b-sides from that era were also good.

I am very tempted to get this.  Remastered and official studio versions of Lift, Man O War and I Promise is just beyond what I could ever hope for.  I do own it on CD (it's one of my favorite albums), but I could use a vinyl and I don't even really collect it, thinking about starting to though.  I wonder if they will do this for Kid A in 2020 as I'd be all eyes and ears.

Happy 20th birthday OK Computer.

Radiohead's best - toss up to me between OKC, IR, KidA or HTTT

Back to OK Computer - came out the same year as Pop. 'Nuff said!

Whether we like the album or not, in terms of cultural impact OKC eclipsed Pop and pretty much everything else that came out in the world of rock in 1997.
