This is how I interpret Radiohead's albums and what they've meant with each release.Buy the album when it's released in a few weeks or download it from InRainbows.com now. Remeber, you can play as much or as little as you want. Hell, you could even get it illegally for no reason.
Pablo Honey - "Hello. We're Radiohead. This song is called Creep".
The Bends - "FUCK OFF, critics. We're not a one hit wonder, assholes. This album proves we're a million times better than that yet-to-come faggot Chris Martin"
Ok Computer - "FUCK OFF, mainstream rock. We're going to produce an electro-computerized-guitar-rock album that blows your fucking mind and sets off the alternative craze for generations to come."
Kid A - "FUCK OFF, commercial success and radio/mtv outlets. We're sick and tired of being so damn glamorized that this album will be so experimental and radio-unfriendly that we're hoping to shed off a bulk of our bullshit fans, and yet it will still kick major fucking ass."
Amensiac - (same as "Kid A" but part 2)
Hail to the Thief - "FUCK OFF, George Bush for stealing the elections. And fuck you if you thought we didn't have it in us to produce a more commercially sound album, again."
In Rainbows - "FUCK OFF, RIAA! This album kicks insane amounts of ass and you will not make a penny off of it, you dirty money-hording grimy lil' bastards."
And THAT, my friends, is why I have so much damn respect for Radiohead.
