Well, if there was a 'I hated "Creep" but like everything from The Bends onwards' option I would've picked that, but decided "It's all good" was closest.

Interestingly, Radiohead's material from Kid A onwards is my favourite, but it's all good so I voted for that.
Wish has a smattering of decent songs on it, and the non-album tracks from the '90s (the one on the Crow soundtrack, and the "Wrong Number" single at least) were good, but Disintegration is the last great Cure album.
Technique is great and I think New Order became pretty much rubbish after that.

Yay, great poll :)

I agree with you on The Cure, though would possibly replace Wrong Number with The Big Hand (a B-side from the time of Wish).

As for New Order, I'd draw the line on albums after Power, Corruption & Lies, though there have been brilliant singles since then (from Bizarre Love Triangle to Here To Stay).

re: Radiohead, I wanted a "Pablo Honey kind of sucks, and I'm not that into Hail To The Thief" option.

I picked Wish, because it's decent, if not great.

I should point out that my Cure answer is more a reflection of Disintergration being pretty much my least favourite Cure album. Wish is in fact one of my favourites, largely on the strength of "Doing The Unstuck".
