This album is one of my favourite political albums and has the most variety of all of the Radiohead albums but not their best in my opinion. It is a great listen from start to finish and because it has so much different styles it stays very interesting. Like the whole album but 2+2=5, Sit Down. Stand Up., There There and A Wolf At The Door is my favourite ending to all their albums. A great listen and underrated in my opinion.

I love Radiohead, but this album can be maddeningly inconsistent. There, There and 2+2=5 stand as some of the band's best work,though, and so HTTT still stands as a truly captivating album

another great effort - "I Will" is such a great song with superb harmonies; whilst I absolutely love "Punch Up At A Wedding" - the lyrics are amazing.
Only down point on the album is Myxomatosis, not a big fan of this kinda non-melodic stuff that does feature in later albums also

One of my favourite albums of noughties - there are a lot of different songs for any mood state - fast and dynamic, slow and soft, bittersweet and melancholic. I love that way traditional guitar sound merge together with electronic sound. And of course lyrics are awesome!

Radiohead are still finding their way after "Kid A", "Hail to The Thief" feels like a middle ground between kid a and "In Rainbows", It is complete in ways, and incomplete in others. I think If Amnesiac didn't existed and in it's place there was hail to the thief with some replaced songs we could be looking at some high tier stuff here, but what we have here is something that is pretty good, but could definitely be even better.
"A Wolf at The Door" still stands as one of my favorite songs from this band.

I think "Hail To The Thief" is Radiohead's least consistent album in their post-The Bends era. There are great highs ("There There" might be my favorite Radiohead song ever), but also a few lows that sink the album a little bit.

Don't get me wrong, it is still a very good album. But for me, it just doesn't have the intangible that make so many Radiohead albums great rather than just good.

I am genuinely jealous of anyone who really enjoys this album, it's very inventive and original. But I can't stand listening to most of it, and I have tried several times, give me OK Computer anytime. There, There is by far the best track.
