    Tonight I found my old Radiohead cd, OK Computer..I totally forgot about this thing, and how amazing their music was. Without going the google route or anything..I have no idea what happened to them, or for that matter, I couldn't tell you what one of their songs means, and truthfully, the singing along part sounds more like long stretches of constanants and vowels linked together instead of words, as I have no idea almost what any of the lyrics were..But this is still some really great songs--Amazing sounds, and I'm sure it's probably deep stuff..Maybe? Are these guys still around or anything? Any other albums of theirs I should go find that would be..Similar to what they did here? I remember I wanted to get the ones after this..But like they went weird or something. Then I discoverd Beck and Moby..

    That was the last cd that I liked from them. I just can't get into the acid-trip shit that is their newer stuff. Both that album and the Bends are actually two of my favorite albums of all time.

    They used to write such pretty music without having to be "experimental".

    Different strokes for different folks, I guess....I know a lot of people that like their new stuff.

    I personally think it's noise.

    I love these guys. They are always trying to do something new. They are now mastering their new album. OK Computer is an awesome album.

    About this time last year the lead singer of Radiohead, Thom York came out with a solo album, The Eraser.
    I think by the end of this year Radiohead's seventh album should be out.
    OK Computer is probably the best album ever. I even named my PC Ok Computer.

    Yeah..It's an amazing album..That again I have no idea what the hell they're on about in any of it..But, it sounds great. Exit Music (For A Film) is a really great peice.

    Everytime someone mentions Radiohead, I think "Scott Titherman must die!"

    I know a lot of people who rave about their most recent album, "Hail to the Thief". If you like OK Computer I'm sure you'd like that too.

    They put on an amazing concert. One of the best sounding live shows I've ever been too. Much more energetic than one would expect.

    OK Computer is a great album. Perfect music for when you need to pass out. Paranoid Android is one of my all-time favorite songs and videos.

    Hail to the Thief is probably my favorite, also check out "Pyramid Song" off of Amnesiac. It gives me chills.

    OK Computer is one hell of a piece of work. Easily one of my top albums of all time.

    I really hope I will be able to see them on tour when they go on tour for their next album.

    Everything In Its Right Place, Creep, Karma Police, 2+2=5 are among my favorite songs from Radiohead. I listen to them almost on a daily basis.

    *listening to Björk's 'Declare Independence' from her new album*

    Despite my sig, I listen to all kinds of music (actually, aside from Transformers I collect CDs...over 1000 now...that's 12,000 songs on the ipod for those who want to go that route).

    I can't pick a favorite Radiohead album as they are all excellent. They all show a natural progression for the band from just loud arena rock to progressive and alternative.

    If you are lucky enough to see them live I can't recommend it enough. They put on one of the best shows I've ever seen. I do highly recommend buying tickets as soon as they go on sale; I've discovered twice how bad it is to wait.

    thom yorke was doing his own thang for awhile, hence the hiatus.

    i dont blame them for taking a break, since their knockoff, coldplay, was filling their spot.

    haha i made fun of coldplay
