Achingly beautiful. I stood in awe for 3 hours.

They are awesome live, best concert I have been to. I saw em in Berkley about a year ago and it was hilarious how Thom almost fell out of his bench while leaning over during the opening "you and whose army."

...BTW, my vote is for 'The Bends'

Does anyone know where I could buy the Amnesiac B-sides?

I'm listening to Amnesiac again after 6 years (I really could not get into it when it first came out) and I'm digging it. It helps that it sounds sublime on the L3000.

I voted for The Bends, it has held up well after repeat listens.

The Bends all the way!

Pretty funny that there's no votes for Pablo Honey. That's the only RH album I don't own. I believe they once called it "the greatest hits of an unsigned band". Sounds like even they didn't like it.

OK Computer FTW!

IMO it has 2 of the best songs RH have written: The punky, ultra-aggressive "2+2=5" and the Pink Floydish "Sail To The Moon".

Wolf at the Door in particular is genius. The best ones are always underrated in my opinion. ;-)

I don't really like to seperate Kid A and Amnesiac, but since we have to, i'm going to have to say Amnesiac just wins this one for me. Pyramid Song alone makes the album, and it finishes on a high with Life in a Glasshouse. But then Kid A has The National Anthem, Idioteque, Everything...

Bear in mind, my opinion on this is subject to change on a daily basis!

I just checked Amazon and it looks like they never did release a comp of the b-sides from Kid A/Amnesiac like they did for some other albums. So it would be difficult to buy them at this point I'd guess. I have all the singles. I could probably help you out if you need them and can't find them anywhere.

I can't decide between OK Computer and Kid A. They are both great but different.

Really? Lots of good RH tracks on that disk but I have to go with "Backdrifts" and "Go to Sleep" as my picks. IMO, It's still crushed by OK Computer though.

EDIT: I forgot "Myxomatosis"! With that crunchy bass it's a great track.

If you like tracking down rarer stuff, all of the Kid A and Amnesiac era b-sides were released on two 5-track Japanese releases, the Pyramid Song Maxi Single and the Knives Out Maxi Single. They were spread out across two CDs each for the UK, Pyramid Song CD1 and CD2, and Knives Out CD1 and CD2.

Check out eil.com for purchasing info.

The Bends for me, although I'm partial to the more rock direction Radiohead began with I can appreciate OKC, Kid A, Amnesiac, and Hail to the Thief as they'd be my 2-5th choices respectively

Pyramid song is an utterly AMAZING track. So much so that I think I have forgotten to listen to Amnesiac as an album in a long while. I'll have to queue that up.
