    (Original post by Sorry...Alright...Well...)
    I'm interested to know why you think OK Computer beats The Bends. For me, it would be a toss up between the two, but I cannot pick between them. Both albums mean so much to me.
    er OK.
    I chose OK Computer above The Bends as personally I feel that OK Computer is radiohead's definitive album. I think it's rather more interesting musically and lyrically, and listening to it the whole way through is a pretty amazing experience. It's like an emotional rollercoaster.

    The Bends has fantastic vocals, but in terms of song order is less well thought out. Street Spirit although a great song in it's own right, to me doesn't sound like a good finisher (perhaps due to the songs leading up to it not fitting in either). The tourist from OK computer I feel is much more suited, and the tracks are more ordered hence the overall effect of the album is intensified, e.g. No suprises being the "calm before the storm", Karma police nicely leading onto Fitter Happier (while although Fitter Happier is not radiohead's best song, it does set the mood very well for the 2nd half of the album).

    The Bends has some nice lyrics in it (I particularly like the title track). It's opener is very good also (but again I feel it's weaker than Airbag). Though some of the tracks aren't particularly strong. It's kind of a mix between very strong (e.g. Fake Plastic Trees, Street Spirit, The Bends) and kind of average/week (Bones, Sulk). Also High and Dry personally I don't like so much, although it's a great song, I think it's inferior to Fake Plastic Trees and suffers from preceding it. The talent of arranging songs in such a way to inspire emotions (and emotional changes) in the listener I don't feel were employed to great extent as other albums. OK Computer was the first to do that, and Kid A also doing that well (in fact all their albums after The Bends have done that well).

    The Bends although had some great guitar parts weren't as inventive or interesting as the Radiohead sounds albums after it. Having said that, I do believe Fake Plastic Trees is the best radiohead song (the emotions in conjures are incredible). I probably rank the radiohead albums as follows:
    OK Computer
    Kid A
    Hail to the Thief (which I believe is underrated)
    Amnesiac
    The Bends
    Pablo Honey

    There I believe I have given you an answer.

    I'd say it was alright, you had Oasis, Nirvana, Pearl Jam, rap's best generation imo and lets face it we'd all prefer to be listening to the 90's rather than the 00's....

    Bah... Then Massive Attack & Prodigy had some sweet stuff too from what I remember...

    Too much good music, xD. Then they'll be the albums I haven't even heard.... Too hard to narrow it down to one. xD

    If I had to choose one right now.... My gut would go with...
