Description
"...the second album by the English alternative rock band Radiohead was subject to much greater critical acclaim than their debut Pablo Honey, and it reached number 4 in the UK album charts. It failed, however, to build on the commercial success of their single "Creep" outside the UK, and its peak on the American charts was Radiohead's lowest position there, at number 88.[1] The Bends was produced by John Leckie at EMI's studios in London, and it was engineered by Nigel Godrich, an assistant at the studio who went on to produce every subsequent Radiohead album. Featuring five charting singles, the album also marked the beginning of a shift in aesthetics and themes for the band, with greater use of keyboards, and more abrasive guitar tracks balancing subtler ones. The introspective post-grunge Radiohead style of Pablo Honey evolved toward more multilayered rock with cryptic lyrics and larger ideas, as the band and singer Thom Yorke reacted against the rigours of near-constant world tours. "Street Spirit (Fade Out)", the final single and last song, became their first top five UK hit. Although it lacked the instant success of later Radiohead albums, The Bends achieved triple platinum sales certifications in the UK and Canada and platinum sales in the US and the EU. It has appeared repeatedly in polls and music magazine lists of greatest albums of all time, particularly in Britain. Over time the album has been seen in the UK as one of the dominant influences on rock music after Britpop.
