    Yes it is.
    But hail to the thief is underrated in my opinion.

    Agree with the placing of The Bends after the top three. Personally I would have put it below Hail to the thief. I think The Bends is overrated too (not as much as in rainbows). Whilst it's a collection of good songs (and very strong vocals), the album itself doesn't run as well as the others.
    My order would be:
    OK computer
    Kid A

    Hail to the thief

    Amnesiac


    The Bends



    In Rainbows










    Pablo Honey









    I think OK computer is just a bit better than kid A. Not by much though.

    1. Muse - Origin Of Symmetry
    2. Muse - Absolution
    3. Avenged Sevenfold - City Of Evil
    4. Avenged Sevenfold - Avenged Sevenfold
    5. Dream Theater - Train Of Thought
    6. Dream Theater - Octavarium
    7. Dream Theater - Systematic Chaos
    8. System Of A Down - Mezmerize
    9. System Of A Down - Hypnotize
    10. Muse - Black Holes and Revelations

    In no order, I just wanted to add another band in at the end but nothing really took precedence. I liked MCR's Three Cheers album, and Billy Talent's 2 albums were good, but nothing really came to mind. I guess a Disturbed album could have made the cut...
