Having been a pretty dedicated fan since 1994/1995, but not seeing them live until 2003, I had years to really absorb the released material and nothing to contrast it with. That being said, once I saw them live, two things happened: A. They ruined me proverbially on any other band, live. B. The studio albums (up to that point, which was HTTT), just weren't the same anymore. I've always view bands in a certain context with quite a few of them sucking live; good ones being as decent as their studio recordings; the few stellar ones transcending the studio. Radiohead clearly falls into the last category. Something about the energy flow between band and audience, it just cannot be beat. I'm not saying that I don't like the albums, but the live experience is how I feel RH should be ingested, if you will. Does anyone else feel similarly?
