Radiohead - The Bends




Before I post my review of In Rainbows tomorrow, I figure I should provide a frame of reference by reviewing what I consider to be my favorite Radiohead album (and one my all-time favorite albums period): The Bends. Without question, the album is an experimental grunge fest of litany and thematic elements. Guided by Thom Yorke, the band was already well on the way to stardom after their pivotal single release in 1992, "Creep." Pablo Honey soon followed and Radiohead became an international force of sonic movement, along with their rising counterparts stateside in Nirvana. Personally, I love this album because it is personal and you can hear the emotion inherent in Yorke's vocals, and through the rest of the band's vast instrumental harmonies. Standout tracks: "High & Dry," and "Fake Plastic Trees." Rating: 10/10
