Re: Radiohead is...

I have two of their albums Kid A & OK Computer, Not bad but not as good as all the hoopla that surrounds them IMO. I voted overrated

Re: Radiohead is...

They are arguably the biggest and most innovative band in the world right now (although bands like Arcade Fire give them a run for their money).

I would have voted for them as best band of the last 10 years, but if you make it 15 I'm not sure if they quite top acts like Pearl Jam.

Radiohead are great.
I like Arcade Fire, but they are not bigger than Radiohead.
Sorry, I made a major typo there. I meant to say there's like 8 of them....therefore they're a bigger band.....get it....get it?
Haha yeah, I think that's cool though. I want my badn to have like 7 people.. but under my direction
Make them take an oath.

One of the greatest bands in the past 15 years but not THE greatest band.

I'd say they're a bit overrated...but they're also very good.

Re: Radiohead is...

i think they are one of the greatest in the last 15 years, no doubt. There are some solo musicians id put ahead of them, and maybe some bands like Pearl Jam, REM, and The Tragically Hip. But they are definitely not overrated, they are very interesting talented and innovative.

I'd go with this. The Bends and OK Computer are perfect records, and that's two more than most bands have. But the rest of their work varies in consistency.

DITTO I don't think the word "greatest" applies to any rock band. They are all great in their own way. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

i actually prefer the opposite, i love their post OK Computer albums and thin they're all great while i think the Bends and OK are shaky at times
