The most underrated Radiohead album, and by a mile. For me, this is their second best behind only "In Rainbows". This album is just a masterpiece. I didn't like it on first listen, but boy, this album grows on you if you allow it! "Morning Mr Magpie" and "Separator" would be my two favorites right now, but this is bound to change since every song is great (except maybe "Feral", which is an ok song in the context of the album, but might be weird if taken out of context).

I've only listened to this album twice, but it's become one of my favorites by Radiohead. It's them at their most experimental, yet their softest and most mellow, this album has to be one of their best. To me it only rivals In Rainbows for 2nd.

Weak, uninspired and droning, this album seems to be coming from an exhausted band who've completely depleted every good idea they've ever had and are struggling to forge on in spite of that. Well that's what I originally thought until AMSP put Radiohead back in my good graces again. And as much as I love this band overall, the "can do no wrong" nature of a lot of fellow fans can be a bit much. Sure we all have our favorites amongst their work, but complaining they have a couple of albums that aren't rated #1 in their respective years is a bit much.

OK Computer, Kid A and In Rainbows are Radiohead at their best. Albums like The Bends and Amnesiac are more then respectable. This is Radiohead at their most labored and desperate. That said, I personally couldn't be happier that they rebounded after this even if it took almost a decade between good albums.

Worst album by Radiohead, not cohesive at all. I really like last 3 songs, but I wouldn't recommend this album to a friend. 5/10.

This a really good album that gets a bad reputation because it so often gets compared to other Radiohead masterpieces. It is a little slow but the whole project is aesthetically pleasing.

An amazing record that pales in comparison to other Radiohead records because it has two of the group's weakest tracks (Feral and Morning Mr Magpie), and considering that this is only 8 tracks long, that's actually a considerable part of the record (25%). However, the second half of this record has some of the best Radiohead songs ever. Seriously, it's one great track after another.

This album left an impression on me. I heard this album is one of their worst. I must've heard wrong. Every piece is beautiful and I can say it fits as a good prequel to AMSP.
