All influence is ripoff. Every artist is a cannibal, every poet is a thief.

I love Coldplay, but they are sometimes guilty of being the most awesome U2 tribute band.

Radioed made a good record in 1997 (OK Computer). But I'm not a big fan. There's far too much buzzing and screeching and not enough actual music. And Yorke can't sing.

Neither are in the same universe as U2.

i like Radiohead, but lately i just can't bear to listen to Thom Yorke.
he produces the same sound, over and over!

i very much prefer Philip Selway's solo albums.
that drummer guy is versatile!

Yeah, Phil Selway's Weatherhouse is excellent!

I understand music is subjective, but boring? I find most of Radiohead's output much more engrossing than, say, ATYCLB or HTDAAB.

I don't care for Coldplay, but Radiohead I used to like a lot, nowadays only like them a bit. Never liked them as much as U2, of course.

radiohead or coldplay have never ,ever reached the heights of u2 and never will. Enough said.


Never liked Radiohead, I just can't get past Yorke's vocals.  I never understood the U2 comparisons from Coldplay either.

Personally I find Kid a and In Rainbows far more interesting than anything U2 or Coldplay have done in the past 15 years.

And Yorke can't sing? Really? Bono has praised Yorke's singing voice.

Radiohead is from the generation of one-hit "alternative rock" wonders of the 1990s. Soul Asylum, Runaway Train; Candlebox, Far Behind; Toad The Wet Sprocket, All I Want; Mr.Big, To Be With You; Deep Blue Something, Breakfast At Tiffany's; Stone Temple Pilots, Plush; Crash Test Dummies, Mmmm mmm mm. Those were great ear candy back in the day.

Radiohead has Creep. Great ear candy in retro playlists. But comparing them to U2? Seriously?

Cheers,

J

LMAO!!! HTDAAB is my favorite album and ATYCLB is not boring by any means. It's so uplifting.

Regarding Radiohead, it's not an apples-to apples comparison since they never pined after fame the way U2 has done (or made music that deliberately appealed to people, at least not in a while). Coldplay on the other hand....

I love Radiohead, but for completely different reasons than why I love U2.

This.

Its totally ok to love both bands you know. To all those Radiohead haters, get a grip when saying they are **** just because you don't happen to like their music.
