When OK Computer hit the airwaves, people were lauding Radiohead as the 'next Pink Floyd'. So, what happened to Radiohead? And why are they now dwarfed by Swilson by prog fans, amongst others?

Because Steven Wilson is more innovative/versatile and his music is more emotional, it's deeper. Which doesn't mean Radiohead are bad, this band is probably the best thing happened to mainstream rock since mid 90s.

^Hmm..Deeper? Perhaps. But more emotional? I'm not too sure about that.

Because they have long since stopped making anything resembling prog in the conventional sense (and maybe OK Computer was the only one that had it anyway).  They have kept changing their sound with their album and with the last one, moved way out of the comfort zone of most classic rock aficionados.  Whereas Wilson has been moving in the opposite direction, bringing his sound closer and closer to the 70s prog sound and with that endearing himself more and more to the prog audience.

Yea this isn't right.

Radiohead still are making great music, their most recent though wasn't one of their best.

It was a hilarious comment, not necessarily because Wilson isn't emotive (though he's not my cup of tea), but because Radiohead are one of the most incredibly moving bands out there.

Well, then you should said that freely.

p.s. Radiohead' songs that you set above are emotional, of course, but in a way that is emotional every (goodpost rock; in fact, both posted Radiohead' songs are - post rock, the genre where  *emotional* is a decoration of the genre. Mr Wilson as a progressive rock artist is undoubtedly deeper in his approach to 'emotional' than postrocky Radiohead

There are plenty of things here that I couldn't disagree with more, but probably best that I leave it be..

Are you really  don't hear that the songs you posted above are examples of post-rock? 
Perhaps you think that the vocal post-rock doesn't exist?

Ten years earlier, in comparison with Talking Heads, Wire or Laurie Anderson, Radiohead would have gone almost unnoticed. Having said that, I like the band but I cannot refrain from wondering if it's not Can or Autechre, which I love in their music.
