5 - my favourite band of all time. Ok Comupter and Kid A are both top 10 of all time for me. And the latter was also a hugely important avenue into electronica for me.

Radiohead then. I love In Rainbows and Ok Computer. Never really got into their other albums. 4/5

Should we move this to the Radiohead forum?

Not as good as Friends

My favourite band.

All of the albums are a minimum of 8/10 except Pablo Honey. Yes, King of Limbs is an 8/10

Kid A, Amnesiac, In Rainbows and OK Computer are all on a par for me.

I love them, I love Thom Yorke’s solo stuff, I love Colin Greenwood’s aura. Best band

They’re honestly okay. A bit lame though.

OK Computer is pretty bad

And I always call it OK Cupid by mistake - annoying.

Pretty good. Don’t often feel a need to revisit them. Think I got into them too late, after my instinctive love for things teenage stage, more into my 20-something wanting to appreciate things more intellectually stage, when much less stuff stuck.

Also damn you funkhouser I’m not gonna be able to join in on this one as much as I’d like to.

Weird Fishes should be on the playlist, it is genius and one of the best songs ever written. As I’ve said before I can’t articulate my thoughts on music (or most anything) so you’ll just have to trust me.

I don’t listen to them all that often and am largely over them now after my cliché period as a teenager and at uni where all I’d talk about and listen to was them.

But, they’re objectively fucking brilliant. In Rainbows will always have a place in my top 10, it’s near enough a perfect album. 5/5, cheers.

The Bends was one of the first CDs I ever bought and it was love at first listen. Got properly obsessed around OK Computer and went to the Big Top show for Kid A which was genuinely astonishing. Kid A and Amnesiac were my gateway into a whole new world of electronic music. HTTT was a bit of a dip and my interest waned a little but In Rainbows is in my top 10 of all time and I see it as the culmination almost of everything they’d done up til then.

In all honestly, TKOL and AMSP leave me cold, it’s just not really for me, doesn’t click. But for that 10-12 years they were my favourite band, and it has to be a 5.

I’ve picked Fake Plastic Trees ahead of Reckoner for best single purely based on seeing it at Glastonbury 2003, a truly jaw dropping, wonderful moment to be part of. I’ll nominate Talk Show Host and Let Down for the playlist, and maybe True Love Waits.
