My post-title says it all, really. I hope my friend Paul Smith agrees:

The 5th studio album from the Oxford-born British experimental band Radiohead is quite truly seminal.
Recorded the same time as the preceding album Kid A and released in mid 2001, the band reach their creative and socialist apex here. The jazz-influence, particularly regarding the lack of electric guitar (compared to previous albums) and collaboration with The Humphrey Lyttelton Band (on infamous track Life in a Glasshouse), is much more notable than before and the result is startlingly good.
Possibly one of the best albums ever, from a band that are so idiosyncratic as to nearly defy definition. A desert-island disc? Definitely.
