IMO they've made three great albums:
The Bends, OK Computer and In Rainbows.

I don't really like it when they do those
computer effects and that bleepity bloop
B.S. (like the last album and Thom's
new solo one)

For some reason I still like The National
 Anthem and Idioteque, though.

Oh come on, Radiohead aren't even that experimental or abrasive or challenging.

The other two are actual bands, both quite experimental, sonically  halfway between a cheesegrater on a ventillator rotor licking your eyelids, and an 18 wheeler speeding over shipping containers with 20 000 wineglasses for cargo...

Radiohead are joyless muck.
Their singer is a miserable dwarf with absolutely nothing to say.

I used to like Radiohead then every song started to sound the same after Kid A. Then all their albums just started to blend in one after the other.

They got boring.

Comparing U2 and Radiohead is like comparing apples to oranges. They may have had a somewhat similar sound at one point or similar sonic origins but the ambition and sound of both bands are very different now.

Coldplay, well I guess I agree with that.

I am also a huge fan of Radiohead and I know that they are great live, but they still haven't got close to what U2 did with Streets in JT Croke Park or Elevation Slane.

Oh there is no doubt that I prefer U2 to Radiohead.

Don't care about Radiohead. Very much like Coldplay, but neither are in the same league as U2 for me nor IMNHHO should they be for others who look at the body of work of each of them.

ill never understand the Coldplay is ripping off Radiohead! arguments. The u2 rip off thing, maybe, with VLV only, but Rh? They both play the piano on some songs. End of comparisons.
