While I haven't listened to all of their music (since it doesn't thrill me even the slightest bit), I have listened to In Rainbows, Pablo Honey, Kid A, yada yada yada, and I cannot, for the life of me, justify any of those albums being considered life-changing or insanely awesome. I don't understand OK Computer's place in The Canon, to boot. I've even tried waiting a few months between album spins in hopes that I'll like each album better than last time I heard it. Unfortunately, I haven't had any luck with that. The fact of the matter is that I like three songs by Radiohead, and that's it.
