    If you dislike boring alt-rock with little originality, you should avoid the Bends. It is almost as bad as Pablo Honey, in my opinion, and the quality of their later albums makes it sound even worse.

    Singing along to Radiohead is perhaps the worse idea ever.

    I do it all the time :ninja:

    Get it all. Then get the 'Towering Above The Rest' which includes a load of b-sides and live stuff.

    Street Spirit does, yes. The others are all dull and uninspiring, which is why I haven't listened to the Bends in its entirety for almost four years.

    there will be a lot of album tracks that won't be on the compilation. I'd suggest buying the bends and ok compute to start with, they won't cost that much and you'll usually find them in hmv in the '2 for £10' sections.
    then i'd suggest listening to the more recent stuff like kid A and hail to the thief
    This.

    :eek: Are you guys saying that I should get EVERY single album? well, except Pablo Honey......

    Amnesiac, Hail To The Thief, OK computer, The bends, Kid A - That's £4.98 x 5 = £24.90.

    Is it worth it?

    Also, just curious; how many of them do you guys have.

    Yes it is worth it. Pablo Honey is worth it aswell to be honest.

    I reccomend only buying a couple at first though, and then if you like them enough go and get more.

    I have them all plus some non-album stuff

    As an actual member of Radiohead I have to say my favourite album is Kid A, it will be your favourite after listening to them and playing them 100 times each.

    Favourite moments:

    Drum intro to morning bell (ahh..the seamless transition from Idioteque makes it all the better..)
    Drums coming in halfway through pyramid song
    Drums fill before beastly bass in exit music..
    Lovely drum fills during the climax "ooohhhh" in Optimistic

    ARGH lets scrap the drummer persona for a minute, I am in love with Radiohead. I must have listened to OKC, Kid A and Amnesiac 10 times each in the last 2 weeks!

    Anyone else want to share their favourite moments, a la mine but not so drum oriented :P

    Why have you cited High and Dry and Black Star as reasons that the Bends is GOOD? O_O

    I must admit I've never really got into HTDC, everyone over on the atease forums adore it. I'm sure it'll come in time.. will it?

    Only recently did I fully appreciate Kid A as an album so maybe it will happen eventually.

    I love the whole structure of it.. particularly treefingers -> optimistic -> in limbo -> idioteque

    I'd say get OK Computer, then Hail To The Theif, then Amnesiac... but seriously mate it's worth getting every album. They've all got a different feel to them, and like others have said definently get them in albums rather than just getting a Best Of cd... you'll appreciate them a lot more.
