I feel that this is a fantastic record, although I do feel that this album is far overrated and has many 90's cliques that isn't that interesting.

Sure this is a great album, but there's no way it should be in the top 20!

Jóia do Radiohead. Após um debut morno, chegou The Bends com aquele amadurecimento no cenário e vários hits. O meu álbum favorito junto com OK Computer.
Músicas favoritas: Blackstar e My Iron Lung.

This albums shows the promise of one of the best bands of the world. Certainly not perfect, but including at least one perfect song (Street Spirit).

Wasn't crazy about it at first, but with a few listens I grew to love it!

A great conventional rock album, but it doesnt touch on the innovation of the rest of radiohead's body of work. Still a joy to listen to though

Also, it's not depressing enough :)

Pretty insane that an album of this caliber is only their fourth or fifth best (still deciding where to put AMSP). I don't think it touches OK Computer, Kid A, or In Rainbows, but it's still really great and consistent. I think the only thing that holds it back from being an all-time great album (for me) is it's not that adventurous musically. It's a really, really good generic rock album.

Best tracks: Street Spirit, Fake Plastic Trees, Just, High and Dry

Radiohead's best conventional rock sound. Best conventional alt rock of the 90's. I'm glad they have consistently expanded their sound like no other rock band. But I wish they had more albums in their past like this to listen to. The world would be a better place if they had just put twice as many albums, since even their worst albums are very good.
