The band has had every album since 1997's "OK Computer" been nominated for "Album of the Year" or "Best Alternative Album" - now that's recognition and an amazing feat.
"O.K. Computer (1997)" was first nominated for "Album of the Year" followed by another nomination for "Album of the Year" for "Kid A (1998)" and in 2009 they were again nominated for "Album of the Year" for "In Rainbows".
O.K. Computer is one of my favorite albums of all time - it's beautifully dark and melancholy as Thom Yorke's haunting and soft, sweet vocals provides the perfect front for music about isolation, aliens and retribution.
"Paranoid Android" is such an intricate song - moving from the fuzz guitar sounds at the beginning to the slow-core dreamy drift to the end - there is so much variation of music in one song.
I voted "Jonny Greene" as the 10th best guitarists of the Modern Rock era, and Rolling Stone even names the Radiohead duo of guitarists (Jonny Greene and Ed O'Brien) as the 59th and 60th top guitarists of all time - now that's another amazing feat for a modern band to claim.
I can also give creedence to this fact - having seen Radiohead live and hearing the guitar works of Jonny and Ed live, it takes on a different dimension. On stage the concert sounds like a "hard rock" concert with electronic interfades - they are so awesome live.
Anyways folks - give it a listen and Rock On!
