I popped in Amnesiac yesterday for the first time in a looong time and man, I did not enjoy it nearly as much as I had in the past.

I am a pretty huge Radiohead fan, so I'm excited to give this a go:

Kid A
OK Computer
Amnesiac
In Rainbows
The Bends
Hail To The Thief
King of Limbs
Pablo Honey

The only reason I list KoL so low is I haven't given myself a proper chance to get into it yet. I hope it moves up in my ranking. Pablo Honey is an easy last, although it's not bad. Kid A is the album that really got me into the band and still stands today as my all out favorite. Most people will agree that OK Computer is also an excellent album, and they are right. I'm somewhat surprised that Amnesiac gets such bad reviews on this board considering how many people like Kid A, but to each their own. In Rainbows, The Bends, and Hail To The Thief are kinda interchangeable, as far as placement, for me. They're all awesome in their own way, and I'm not sure which one I prefer overall. And the last two I've already mentioned.

I also really like the I Might Be Wrong disc. It has True Love Waits on it, and that's probably my favorite love song.

For whatever reason, I found that what made Kid A such a beautiful album was missing in Amnesiac. Not sure exactly what that was, because stylistically they do share a lot of similarities, but the magic just isn't consistant throughout that album. I think that's why I'm enjoying TKoL so much, I really hear a lot more of a Kid A influence than Amnesiac in it.

Amnesiac was a b-sides comp that Radiohead tried to pass off as a proper album. It's fairly obvious; half the tracks are either studio experiments or that god awful alternate version of 'Morning Bell', and the other half are tracks recorded during the Kid A sessions that weren't good enough to make it on that record.

Amnesiac goes at the bottom of my list. OK Computer goes at the top. The rest I don't think I could nail down.

QFT.

As far as OK Computer goes, the only reason I put HTTT above it is because that album was my first proper introduction to Radiohead on a full album scale. Definitely will always hold that one near and dear to my heart.

I was really disappointd by HTTT when it came out. I remember it was released on the same day as Grandaddy's Sumday, and I liked the Grandaddy better almost immediately.

For one thing: The title. Radiohead sometimes have a hard time naming albums, but 'Hail to the Thief' takes the cake - especially considering it was released on the tails of Bush's stolen election, the corniness was unbearable. Then there's that terrible artwork, and that loooooong stretch in the middle of the record that seems to consist of one dirge after another. I hear a lot of people say their opinion of that record changed when they heard that material live, but I haven't seen Radiohead since 2001 so I can't vouch for that.
