But I would say The Suburbs is as good an album as Ok Computer and better than anything by the other bands I mentioned - I think it's been rated as high or higher by a lot of people, too. For me, it's a combo of a great instrumentation, lyrics etc.

Depeche Mode I don't really like, they're naff, but recognise their influence.
Well, i have pretty much all of Radiohead, and I have Funeral, Neon Bible, and The Suburbs....but I haven't listened to AF in a while. Not because I don't like them, just getting more music altogether.

I think overall I'd classify AF as a "greatest hits" band.....where if I was loading a player with limited space I would just choose certain tracks from each album and not the entire albums. But of course, YMMV.

I own no Talking Heads, Echo/Bunnymen, or Depeche Mode, either.
