1. Solo artist. Good at what he did but no match for the collective musical interests of U2 and Radiohead's members.

2. None of his records sold enough copies to suggest an artistic u-turn might be in order.

It wasn't that bad, but i sure hated it.
And "not that bad" isn't good enough for Elliott Smith.

If you are suggesting that Elliott Smith's musical standards are somehow higher than Radiohead's... :lol:

Love Radiohead or hate them, it is downright laughable to suggest that Elliot Smith held higher standards for what he would release on an album than Radiohead. Seriously, welcome to earth, enjoy your stay...

Thanx for the lecture, but i think it's downright laughable to assume what "standards" Radiohead or Elliott Smith can have.
But thanx for taking this way too seriously, and thanx for the reality check...
I wonder why some people hate OB.

These are the people who would have us believe that The Bends is Radiohead's best album. Go figure.

I'll never claim this album or that album is their "best", but i'll gladly name my favorite one if it comes in the conversation.

It's only as serious as you choose to make it. If you want to go around insinuating ridiculous things about Radiohead be prepared to hear criticism on it.

I really think you're misunderstanding what Buffalohed is trying to say here.
