3 of 3 people found the following review helpful By NeuroSplicer HALL OF FAMETOP 50 REVIEWER on Oct. 24 2007
Format: Audio CD
Over the past 3 generations, music industry executives (most with no or little musical education) have reduced the quality of popular music to the lowest common denominator. Vapid lyrics, forgettable tunes, total absence of original music composition and absolutely no innovation. The creativity well is so dry that remakes have become the norm, not the once-in-a-while. Yet, by controlling most of the radio air-play, music CDs still get sold by the millions.

The patient is supposed to be dead, his electroencephalogram flat-lined, when unpredictable spikes such as this one occur. THE BENDS is one of the rare exceptions of a great group putting out a MONUMENTAL album.

If I had a nickel every time I heard that OK COMPUTER is a better album...I have them both and let me tell you: whereas I do take out and listen to OK COMPUTER once in a while, THE BENDS never comes out of the 18CD-charger of my car.

This Album has a beginning, a middle and a finish. No, I cannot distinguish any of the pieces above the rest - they are all gems and part of a ever-shifting musical picture. The level of this Album's artistry is simply unsurpassed - even by RADIOHEAD themselves.

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

Probably one of the top albums of all time.Melodic,powerful and Thom Yorke at his best.

First time I heard this I fell off my chair.I could't stop listening to the album.Fake Plastic Tree,Street Spirit (fade out),Just...Basically,the whole album is wonderful.

My favorite is Sulk...what a song!

Stuck on a desert island...The Bends is my choice.Personnaly the best album I have in my collection!!!

OK. I've listened to just about everything this Oxford quintet has to offer (except "Pablo Honey"...sorry folks!). Maybe I'm a square or something, but "The Bends" certainly contains Radiohead's best--and least experimental--music. No doubt about it.
This CD is the only Radiohead album that is consistently strong from start to finish. Songs like "High and Dry", "Fake Plastic Trees", "Bullet Proof...I Wish I Was" and "Street Spirit (Fade Out)" are stunning in their virtuosity and beauty. "Just" is a really catchy tune that sounds upbeat--if you ignore the lyrics. The title track and "Bones" are the closest thing to head-bangers that you'll get from RH, and "My Iron Lung" is experimental without the pretentiousness that has sandbagged some of their later efforts.
To put things in perspective, the much ballyhooed "OK Computer" has stronger individual songs than "The Bends", but it sputters to a close for much of its second half. I admire "Kid A" for RH's daring electronic experimentation and their unwillingness to make "OK Computer, Part 2". Some of its songs are great, but overall "Kid A" lacks heart and it left me a little cold. While "Amnesiac" has some jaw-dropping moments (e.g. "The Pyramid Song"), it's perhaps RH's most inconsistent album. However, "The Bends" is strong from start to finish and it doesn't let up.
Ergo, I would recommend "The Bends" as the best place to start for the casual Radiohead listener, then proceed to the other CDs if you really like these guys.
Two final things before I go:
1. Why can't Radiohead make a decent-looking album cover? I don't know who designs their stuff, but they really need to hire a new crew or something. "Kid A" was their best album cover, but it looks like a high school art student's interpretation of J.R.R.

Loved this album when it was new and love it even more on thick vinyl. The album is much more meaningful when I sit and listen to the whole thing.

Excellent album! Not Radiohead's best, I prefer their later, more challenging records but The Bends is the first truly incredible Radiohead album (sorry, Pablo Honey). The streak of tracks from Planet Telex to Fake Plastic trees is perfect. The rest of the tracks are great too, no filler whatsoever. Just-->My Iron Lung is a two-track power grouping, it's awesome when the two most intense, rockier tracks are side by side. Oh, and who can disagree that Street Spirit (Fade Out) is one of their very best 90's songs? There's a lot to say about this album. If you haven't listened to this album yet, definitely do so (the vinyl is excellent as well). If you've never listened to Radiohead before, this or OK Computer is where you should start. All of their albums from The Bends on are fantastic from start to finish. 10/10

If you take a profound interest in Radiohead, you have to get this album.
I'll pick up some remarkable tracks in this album.

"High and Dry" and "Fake Plastic Trees" are awesome tracks known as expressing their beauty and fragility.
On the other hand, "Just" and "My Iron Lung" are thrilling and disquieting tracks.
All these tracks are known as the masterpieces of Radiohead.

To this day, Radiohead have kept up innovative experiment and development.
Therefore, It is difficult to express their current musicality.
However in this album, they were melodic, poetic and ironic guitar rock band.
I love them in those days, too.

I think it would be a good idea if you added a link to your web page that would allow people to hear the cd before they review it. Just a thought.
