03.12.18 Radiohead- Worst to Best

Radiohead- Worst to Best

Just my opinion
Pablo Honey

It's an average rock album. Thom's voice is nice. It's acceptable.
The King of Limbs

Songs like Pakt Like Sardines, Pyramid, and I Might Be Wrong are memorable, but songs like Morning Bell are snores.
A Moon Shaped Pool

The production is really nice. Burn The Witch will always be a great track. That second half of Decks Dark is gorgeous. However, overall, compared to their other work, the project can feel like it lacks energy.
The Bends
Hail to the Thief

Great balance between live instruments and electronics and the instrumentation is more diverse (in terms of the physical make-up of the instruments). Thom's voice sounds great. The only tracks that I don't particularly enjoy are There, There, Scatterbrain, and the closer.
Kid A

One of the best openers to any Radiohead album, Everything In Its Right Place demonstrates their ability to mix great melody and instrumentation with amazing production. The National Anthem is one of my favorite tracks Radiohead has recorded. Optimistic is a nice break from obtuse song structures, but I find myself skipping it when I re-listen to the album. Treefingers features gorgeous sounds, but the chords and the sounds alone aren't enough to sell the track in my opinion. Idioteque is some of their best work. Overall, the album does lack a certain flow that projects like Ok Computer feature. The jump between Kid A and the National Anthem and the jump between In Limbo and Idioteque feel forced.
OK Computer

A string of Radiohead's second most cohesive work begins from the start of Airbag to the end of Fitter Happier. Every song in that string is fire (not really counting Fitter Happier as a fire song, more as a fire end to the first of the two more distinct sections of the album). Though the second section is still strong work (Electioneering, Climbing Up The Walls, No Surprises), Lucky, and to an even greater degree with The Tourist, isn't nearly as beautiful or exciting as the rest of the album. I would've been happier if they'd just ended the album at Lucky.
In Rainbows

15 Step is Radiohead's best opener, Videotape is their best and tightest closer. Their song writing is punchy, concise, and the production is gorgeous. The end of Bodysnatchers is so exciting. Weird Fishes is beautiful as well. Nude is one of, if the not the most beautiful songs Radiohead has written (and Thom has sung). Speaking of which, I think Thom's voice was the strongest it would ever become at this point in his career. All I Need is probably my least favorite song, but the end redeems itself. It serves as a great transition into Faust Arp. Speaking of Faust Arp, the chorus and the "Chupacabra" section are amazing. Reckoner's percussion is both fluid and solid, with the 1st and 2nd beats being hit in great time, but the beats in the middle moving with musicality. House of Cards is great and I think Jigsaw speaks for itself. Overall, the best Radiohead album in my opinion.
