Radiohead’s the best band today. There is really no reason to deny this. Ok Computer and Kid A will continue to amaze and entertain. Who else is with me?
Seriously, why be so dogmatic? Tell us you like them, tell us why, but don’t act as though what’s best for you is automatically best for all.
There’s a lot of subjective factors which go into crowning any band as “the best,” but there are quite a few objective criteria as well, such as the technicality and originality of the music plus record sales. Ever since the release of OK Computer, I really don’t know any other band whose ‘next album’ is always a major international event. Mind you, I quit buying Radiohead albums after Hail to the Thief, and didn’t even listen to that one much, but you gotta give credit where it’s due.
