From SamAndreas 3 days ago
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.

This is the album that got me into Radiohead. While not as strong as most of their predecessors, the second half in particular just rolls from one great track to another.

To appreciate it this album, you have to listen to it almost within it's own vacuum and with an open mind. Once you've figured that out, it's a really interesting 40 minutes. This was my favourite for a time until I 'got' In Rainbows and Ok Computer properly.

This album has aged so well for me. It has so many layers, and I almost like how people dislike it so much. It's something that I can hold near and dear to me without too much white noise from the angry fans.

This album is simultaneously under and over appreciated. It gets a ton of hate, but that's just because its probably the worst album in Radiohead's discography. That being said, the worst album in Radiohead's discography would be one of the better albums in any other bands'. I'm not sure if it deserves to be ranked this high though...

From garycottier 09/21/2017 17:41
One of my least favourite Radiohead albums. It's just a load of blippy bloppy noises with very little melody or feel. There are some nice grooves and textures but as a collection of songs it falls very flat for me. It seems they've forgotten or don't know how to write songs anymore. I can never remember a thing about it once it's finished.
