Radiohead are a very good band but not the best.

I will say that I wish the band would come out with something more akin to the more radio friendly confines of The Bends and OK Computer.

With artistic integrity unquestionably intact and having made Pearl Jam's self imposed seclusion look like a well thought out boy band marketing blitz, it's time for Radiohead to follow up In Rainbows with OK Computer's natural sequel.

I think Muse beat them to it with Origin of Symmetry and Absolution.

Anyone worth his/her Rock & Roll salt knows The Replacements are the best band ever.

Explain your reasoning. Radiohead's line-up blows U2 away. I can honestly say the drummer and bassist of Radiohead are far more adept then U2's Larry Mullen and Adam Clayton. Radiohead is also incredibly experimental

OK, this idiocy ends here. I am sick and tired of this B.S. about how "incredibly experimental" Radiohead supposedly is, coming from the mouths of those who clearly have scant knowledge of anything vaguely esoteric.

mofos.


As for the beloved "You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login", turns out it has fewer chords than "You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login"...

So much for the whole "two-chord" criticism. And incidentally, if In Rainbows had "Coldplay" on its cover then no-one extolling its virtues on this forum would touch it with a bargepole. From track three onwards it's a collection of their most insipid ballads yet, finished with a rehash of "Pyramid Song".

Full disclosure: I have Kid A, Amnesiac and Hail to the Thief, and don't intend to use any of them as coasters.

Agreed.

Besides, Achtung Child can't even name the drummer and bassist from Radiohead, and still says they're better than Larry and Adam, but that is subjective.

I'm pretty sure he has crawled into a hole because he knew he was gonna get bashed for saying such sometimes ridiculous things.

Or, look at it another way. If Coldplay were actually capable of writing anything nearly as good as In Rainbows we'd all be loving them and already be extolling their virtues.  :)

Iannis Xenakis. Good sh**. 

Radiohead are an experimental rock band, not makers of experimental music.  However, they are a wildly innovative rock band.  And Phil Selway is a much better drummer than Larry.  His parts or much more complex, and he's more versatile.  Colin Greenwood, same thing - much better than Adam.  Johnny Greenwood is one of the most talented musicians working today - he can play many intruments, all very well, and his arrangements are stunning.  Way better than Edge. Thom Yorke - not a better singer than Bono, but his lyrics are a lot better  - they are not embarassing or vague to the point of being meaningless, as Bono's can be. And he's a better musician too.  Excellent guitar and piano player, and he puts together some amazing beats.  They are a more versatile band than U2, who are really good at putting a new dressing on the same salad.
