Radiohead used to be one of my favourite bands, but Kid A made me loose interest in them. The two last albums have been OK I heard.

Coldplay are boooooooooring. Despite all the bad reviews on X&Y it sold more 10 million copies.

I'd like Radiohead's next album to be a rock n'roll album ("Pablo Honey", "The Bends" come to mind) instead of
an experimental, depressing one.....

Few artists in the last 20 years have put out anything nearly as good as The Bends or OK Computer. But I agree, they lost me at Kid A.

Coldplay has some excellent songs. But as albums, I find them to be a little bland.

Kid A is amazing, you just gotta play it over and over and over until you get it.

Radiohead are just pure innovators, and Thom can write the sweetest melody. I love those guys

it's worth it. It's a really beautiful album. It really isn't that "difficult". The Beatles made weirder stuff than Kid A

I like Kid A a lot. I think it's a natural progression. I'm glad they take chances with each record. Heck, I liked Pop a lot by U2, and most people hated that record. It's one of my favorites by them. You just can't expect people to repeat themselves over and over again. Otherwise it gets a little boring. :roll:

REM - new adventures in hi-fi is another one that's different but great.
