Been reading comments by radiohead fans about anyone's reviews on ok computer that are not hailing it as a godlike work of genius which mine is one of, and have got to ask the question "radiohead fans what's wrong with them" it seems like most radiohead fans be they old or young seem to be in a state of arrested development and just haven't made it out of their angsty pretentious teenage years yet. The response to any difference of opinion is the kind of adolescent rubbish most grow out of long before they turn 16 so why is it most radiohead fans can only really come up with one response to the opinion that radiohead are not the greatest thing since the wheel namely "your stupid and don't understand"

However if someone happened to be a Plan B fan it would presumably be ok to call BBC reviewers, one of whom had written that Plan B was banal and going nowhere, "total cretins who know absolutely nothing about their subject". Not a lot of difference there from where I am sitting :-)

I'm with Philip on this. Just read your "review" - http://www.amazon.co.uk/review/R1W1X6T022Z5RW/ref=cm_cr_pr_cmt?ie=UTF8&ASIN=B000002UJQ&linkCode=&nodeID=&tag=#wasThisHelpful - for anyone interested.

Let's be honest; your bit is about as constructive as the people you're criticising here, just silly nonsense about 'whining'. OK Computer is an album about total alienation from society. If you've never felt that way it will be largely meaningless to you, but it's not an easy listen even if you have. The album doesn't give up its secrets lightly.

Do I think it's the greatest album ever made? No, but I also don't think the Stone Roses debut (which is another album that huge numbers rave over) is either. But both deserve better than some vitriolic trolling.

I don't know what OK Computer is about, I have read some of the lyrics and they are mostly meaningless to me, I do however consider it to be a work of god-like genius (or at least pretty f***ing brilliant). Work that one out.

actually im not a plan b fan in the least I merely mentioned it as it illustrates how poor the bbc reviews seem to be like him or not plan b seems to me to have had some success though you would never know from reading the bbc reviews, as to not being any different im not and couldn't care less im opinionated and childish and don't see anything wrong with that just wondered why most radiohead fans seem to be that way too as clearly im not a radiohead fan

I'm going to presume the Plan B album is Who Needs Actions When You Got Words - as it's the only BBC review I can find for him

That one is his first album where he apparently tries to come off as some bad @ss gangsta rapper, and if the review is accurate, fails dismally at what is a rather dismal genre (gangsta not rap in general). The album for which he became famous (Strickland Banks) is (again from reading the reviews as I've heard neither) a complete reinvention of his sound to blue-eyed soul singer. Try putting things in context.

think you would be better advised to actually understand what your talking about before commenting I may not be a fan but even I know that Plan B switches between the rap and soul genres and I have heard that his debut album is quite critically acclaimed though not by the beeb obviously

I have no problem with the music of Radiohead. Unfortunately, it comes as a package with Thom Yorke's terminally morose vocals.

OK Computer is one of the most over-rated albums in recent years imo. Never saw the appeal of Radiohead, rock music for people who don't like to get loose.

I think they're a great band and I love getting loose !! Whatever that means.

TheFoe says:
Rock music should be exciting and make you want to jump about and feel alive, not make you want to sit in a darkened room and slit your wrists. By getting 'loose' I just meant feel energetic as opposed to sitting down and wallowing in self pity. Each to his or her own I guess.

Clearly there's no point in me trying to have a reasonable, grown up discussion with you.

TheFoe says:
Grow up Red! I'm entitled to an opinion as are you, just because we don't agree about this band doesn't justify you being snotty towards me.

Might I suggest not listening to them, as I promise never to listen to Plan B.
In answer to your initial post I do have a dull pain in my elbow if you have any suggestions.

Seems like you are guilty of exactly what you claim most Radiohead fans, young or old to be,
I suspect you know less than a millionth of 1% of Radiohead fans and that roughly that %age have written about and commented/voted on here

Red Mosquito says:
Sorry TheFoe I thought you were just being silly. If I'd have suggested that listening to Folk music and watching Tottenham Hotspur should be exciting and make you want to jump about and feel alive, not make you want to sit in a darkened room and slit your wrists. You'd probably think I was being silly, and you'd be right.

I would suggest that listening to radio head would dissuade you from slitting your wrists (under any lighting conditions) as you would see there is someone worse off than you.

First two Radiohead albums were cracking. After that, no, not for me.

And?? Folk music and Spurs aren't under the moniker of 'Rock Music', so your point is completely invalid. You like Radiohead I don't, move on!

Do your parents know you're on line at this time of night? I think we're on completely different wavelengths here. My point had nothing to do Radiohead

You're the one who told me to disrespectfully go away. I'll drop it when I'm ready
