Very tough one. I have all 4 albums and would listen to them regularly enough. 

 

Gone for Kid A and Wish you were Here.

 

I reckon Pink Floyd and Joni go on from this group.

Blue and Wish You Were Here. I’m not a big fan of Pink Floyd, however, I find the Sex Pistols unlistenable and I don’t enjoy Thom Yorke’s vocals.

 

I’ve often heard people say Kid A is a masterpiece but it could have its work cut out making it past this round.

Kid A is Radiohead's finest work for me. Idioteque is my favourite song of theirs. I don't like Pink Floyd, although if I had to listen to anything by them it would be Wish You Were Here. Blue is timeless and while I liked Never Mind The Bollocks when I was younger I can't really picture myself listening it it now. So, Kid A and Blue.

I am basically going for albums that meant something to me at the time they came out rather than the aesthetics and where they stand in 'greatest' lists , so The Pistols and Floyd here.

Same for me.

Imagine going back to 1977 and telling the Pistols "one day, you'll be in an album poll and people will be voting for you and Pink Floyd".

I had to listen to Blue, Kid A and Wish You Were Here, because I'm not familiar with them.

 

Joni was pretty good.  The other two were like aural narcolepsy.

 From Adam & Eve until eternity, there will never be a better song written than Shine on you crazy Diamond.

 

A simply majestic piece of music.

12 minutes? Fuck that, I'm going to bed.

If you struggle sleeping, listen to it.

 

Neil Young, for example, does a lot of songs that are 12 minutes or more, but at least something happens during that time.

David Gilmour making sweet love to his red Stratocaster is happening throughout.

It takes him 5 minutes to play the first four notes.  I mean, I hate show-off, speedfreak fret-wanking as much as anyone, but four notes in five minutes is taking the piss.

They should rename this "Stonewash: the movie"

Kid A and Wish you were Here for me. Loved the angry rebellious feel of the Pistols when I was 14 but it's completely of its time and sadly it comes off as a bit cartoon-ish now. 

 

I've no desire to hear any more of Joni Mitchell because what I have heard previously (Ladies of the Canyon) bored the living shit out of me.

 

I still listen to WYWH and Kid A on a regular basis.
