Radiohead is one of my favorite bands, and The Bends is (if I had to choose) my favorite album by them. Thom Yorke is a great singer and lyricist. I also really like some of the guitar riffs on some of these songs. This album was a big hit in the UK, but not so much in the US. Though not popular at the time it became more of a classic by them. If you haven't heard Radiohead, this album would be a great place to start.
