Nationwide Mercury Prize artists


Radiohead are simply a class apart from any other band. People who do not get Radiohead just don't understand.They change direction and style of track effortlessly, and Thom Yorke has to be one of the best front men ever.

Beautiful record.But what is it with the woman doing these profiles? She seems to have no idea and no connection with any of the music, just some vague sense of media consensus. Hope the judges have put more thought into the music.

Nick Brookfield
Awesome band that just kees producing great albums. sounds as fresh as if it was their first.

Steve Martinez
Me and my mate think from sunny Spain that Radiohead IS the best band in the last 20 years.
