Radiohead's most conventional album. Personally I like this album more than anything after OK Computer, and maybe even more than OK Computer (can't decide). Track wise it is super solid beginning to end.

The best brit-pop album. Capitalises on the groundwork laid by Blur & The Smiths.

Brilliant opening and closing tracks, and a lot of really good songs in between :)

Favorite Deep Cuts (if Radiohead even has any??): Bullet Proof and Nice Dream both are pretty slow but very deep

Weak compared to other Radiohead albums, but still a consistent, experimental, interesting record. Essentially, it´s Radiohead, just not their best.

Why is this below In Rainbows? It appears in 80 more charts, is it because of having 1 rating lower?

The fact that this is more straight forward rock album than Kid A or In Rainbows doesn't make it less special and great. Songwriting is insanely good and Fake Plastic Trees is their best song ever.

After listening to this alnum for the first time I thought it was rather weak except for two or three songs, but later on it became one of the most emotional albuns I've ever heard so far

The most accessible Radiohead album for those who come from listening to mostly rock, and one of the first that I listened to. This album also has one of the best closers from Radioheads discography.

Best Track: Street Spirit (Fade Out)
