lol, I love when people react like this. I do not care what some person on the Internet thinks about a band. Do you seriously think you're the only one with this opinion?

Wait a few years and try again. First I listened to them I didn't like them that much. The next time I listened... oh wait I haven't listened yet. No point in listening to something I don't feel a tenacious need to listen to. :/

Anything that's "meh" is worth more listens. I know I've grown to like some songs that at first listen didn't really stand out to me.

In my short experience, if it's meh then you're not relaxed enough. Not every song is made to wow you in a hugh way.

Some of us thrive on intensity, savor the energy, and save it for rainy days when the world is thwarted by ambiance.

Everything they've ever put out is decent, but not spectacular.

Except for the From the Basement version of TKoL, that's great.

I find Radiohead to be pretty awful. Maybe I've not heard their best songs, despite having their "best of" compilation but what I have heard of them is so depressing. It's like suicide on a CD. How can people enjoy listening to that?

There's your problem. You should be listening to a full album.

Though if melancholy isn't your thing, perhaps you really shouldn't bother.

what's wrong with the comparison

both have exquisitely engineered albums

radiohead is more rock-orientated and coldplay more pop-orientated, but both experiment with electronic music (x&y, kid a, amnesiac etc) and put out consistently good albums (though coldplay's latest works have been superior to radiohead's latest)

i've never understood the hate towards coldplay (or u2, for that matter)

I think a friend of mine brought that very same CD once when me and my friends were on a holiday.

To be honest, I actually enjoyed listening to it even though I don't care much for Radiohead. I agree that the music was very melancholic, but personally I kind of like that. I don't think I would want to listen to it too often though.

what

the differences are more astronomical than the similarities

you don't say jeans are the same as chinos just because they cover your legs, just like you can't say jeans are the same as a jacket just because they're both made of denim

I totally see what you're getting at, but Coldplay fail to be clever or moving.

You should cut off your ears and never listen to anything ever again because it's pointless.

You never made the Radiohead 10 playlist?

If you play the tracks of OK Computer and In Rainbows like this

1
1
2
2
3
3
4
4

etc. etc. except on the occasion of karma police is followed by fitter happier,

put a ten second crossfade on it, and it all plays like ONE CONTINUOUS SONG

If that isn't the most amazing album easter egg, then what else could be? It was 10 years of planning.
