Every track on this CD is perfect, their are no duds, filler, no (as I feel is sometimes the case on their later releases), ineffectual experimentation. Just listen and enjoy the beautiful , strangely uplifting miserableness of a band at their peak. Anyone who doesn't own and enjoy this album is weird.

Miserable yet Masterful
Posted by Play.com Reviewer, 26/01/2011 20:03:20
Radiohead are the only band I'd say who survived the 90's with a good reputation and fame. This album is a very rare thing in music; a good and successful concept album. The concept is that of taking guitars and changing their sound and Radiohead, through musical genius take those new sounds and make an album of superbly innovative music.
There are, however, some criticisms of it I've heard since the critics turned on them and decided to reverse their judgements.
The first is that the backing beat to Karma Police and No Surprises is the same. However, Nirvana did this with Polly and Lithium and Nevermind was great.
The second is Radiohead write tunes which are hard to get into. I agree with this and find OK computer a bit of a flawed masterpiece as a result. It does have brilliant songs with good backing music. However, I have listened to this album hundreds of times and the message of anti capitalism or what not is as clear as mud on most of it.
I still say it is essential to anyones music collection, but I warn you it is a hard album to know.

Best album of the last 20 years
Posted by Play.com Reviewer, 21/05/2010 08:42:10
This is one of my favorite albums. I listened to it, when I was 17, and it really helped me "open" my ears and my mind. The first couple of times I listened to it, I was a bit confused, but then... Magic! And still, 13 years and at least 500 hearings later, it doesn't get boring even for a second! I could go on and write many things about this album, but I guess that words are just poor in this case. It's just the best album of the last 20 years, by the best band of the last 20 years. Simple as that...

This is quite possibly the best album ever made, certainly my favourite. It come at a time when Britpop was really the only thing in the mainstream British market.
Its not for everyone I grant, and takes more then one listen to get through. I've listened to it for years now and yet I am still finding parts to songs that I didn't notice before. It flows seemlessly from track to track without fuss and continues a high standard throughout. Every track on this album is necessary, so skipping a track would immensely impact the ambience of the record. A true piece of musical enginuity in a time when it was needed. Not an upbeat album by any means, but if you truely appreciate music as an art form, then this is a must have in your collection. It also costs a fiver, how can you argue with that.

This album might take a few listens to get into, but it's definatley worth the effort if you can.
I just can't get enough of it at the moment, Paranoid Android, Exit Music (For a Film), Karma Police and Lucky are my favourite songs, but the whole album in general is nothing short of spectacular.
At this price you can't afford not to buy it and give it a listen.

A great album, Radiohead at its best
Posted by Play.com Reviewer, 10/08/2008 13:21:09
OK Computer is one of the all-time, greatest albums in Rock history. The songs are subtle and beautiful, and are set out together in a pleasing line up. When first listening to this album, many listeners, even the group itself, thought it was a terrible piece of music. However, give it chance! Listen to it more than once and you'll find its a stunning work of art, a brilliant experimental masterpiece, and a credit to Alternative Rock. Fans of Muse will like this album, as Radiohead heavily influence Muse's music. If your looking for a fast-paced, joyful album, then this isn't for you. The tracks, their lyrics and rhythm are slow and oppressive, but make an amazing musical experience. Some may find it bland and unappealing, but anyone with an open mind and a taste for all music will enjoy it.
If your looking for something different, then buy this album, no music collection is complete without it.
