Of course they hold up. Radiohead is our Pink Floyd (or is Tool our Pink Floyd? depends on what angle you come at it), our U2 (even though I'm old enough to have had U2 the first time) and they deserve the mantle. Those records are perfectly of-their-times and slightly timeless.
OK Computer is the classic end-of-the-century album people make it out to be, and no more really needs to be said about it, but I wish to give a shout-out to Amnesiac, the instantly maligned follow-up to Kid A. The techno-infused tracks rock that cyborg rock with ice-cold blood dripping from its chassis, the swooner hits like "Knives Out" sound like what big hits should sound like, I guess, and "I Might Be Wrong" which is somewhere in between the two might be the best muzak ever made. A man could buy the most tricked out iPod available listening to that song.
