Product Description

Amazon.co.uk

Radiohead's third album got compared to Pink Floyd a lot when it came out, and its slow drama and conceptual sweep certainly put it in that category. OK Computer, though, is a complicated and difficult record: an album about the way machines dehumanize people that's almost entirely un-electronic; an album by a British "new wave of new wave" band that rejects speed and hooks in favor of languorous texture and morose details; a sad and humanist record whose central moment is Thom Yorke crooning "We hope that you choke." Sluggish, understated, and hard to get a grip on, OK Computer takes a few listens to appreciate, but its entirety means more than any one song. --Douglas Wolk

So let me preface this by saying I never thought I would ever get around to reviewing OK Computer. I stopped listening to this album several years ago, having heard it so many times before I stopped I lost count. I used to know it so well I knew everything I thought I could know about it. But just recently after I think 3-4 years I played it again a few days ago, and then again this morning in the small hours...and fresh ears bought to light things I were not aware of.

So...this album is NOT perfect. If you want a music experience that is squeaky clean with everything in its right place you should look elsewhere...but please, hear me out. I have dreaded this for so long now and the reason is the sheer volume of sound coming at you in this album is for there being no more adequate word, ridiculous. This is a real audiophiles album, and with a £60 5:1 speaker with bass system, I do not in ANY way consider myself one of those. [I frankly don't have the financial ability to be one] OK Computer essentially is a kaleidoscope of sound mixed with some form of intoxicant and a VERY scary roller-coaster. But it is also dark and broody, moody with maybe a almost whispered hint of optimism that life is worth it. The music in OK Computer is almost always complex, with a lot of things happening at the same time, half of which by rights should NOT be able to work...but they pull it off, some how they [being Radiohead] pull a mysterious rabbit out of the hat on every track, by one means or other. Even the ridiculous almost but not quite interlude, that is fitter happier.

A friend of mine once said that Radiohead were the kind of band who it was easy to admire, and yet difficult to like. I always agreed, preferring the accessibility of bands like Oasis and The Stereophonics to the intensive coolie labour it could sometimes take to listen to Radiohead. Then, last summer, I went to see Radiohead play at Victoria Park in London. And I saw the light.
This album can ask a lot of the listener, but if you can really give into the music and just let it carry you off, you can become so consumed by these songs that you find yourself suddenly opening your eyes at the end of a track, blinking in surprise at the fact that you are actually back in the real world. They tear your soul open, and force you to confront those feelings for which you probably don't even have a name. Despair perhaps, numbness perhaps, but above all, the way it can sometimes feel just to be a human in the 20th Century.
It's hard to pick a stand out track (even the pretty much tune free "Fitter, Happier" makes for compelling listening), but "Exit Music (for a film)" is one of the most touching, fragile and beautiful songs you will ever hear. When you consider Thom Yorke wrote it as a soundtrack to the end of Romeo and Juliet, the lyrics become even more intense; "Today, we escape, we escape". "Don't lose your nerve. I can't do this - alone".
If you have ever felt alone, disenfranchised, pointless or depressed, this record will connect with you in a way you may have never thought possible. And that contact will make you feel better. Less alone. It makes you feel like there are other people out there who feel like this. It's a record which takes you on a journey through the darker parts of the soul. A record about how it feels to be human.
Oh, and it's very, very good (did I mention that?).

My dad got this when I was 7 in 1997. He used to play it everyday and I love this album so much. It's really awesome how the guitarist used the space echo effect to create such a serene atmosphere and its mind-blowing how the singer sings with such emotion. This is a roller coaster ride of an album to listen to. It actually gives the listener a chance to explore his/her imagination on each song as the songs are so atmospheric that its easy to get lost in a world of your own.
Overall, this is exceptionally good in my opinion. I can't say you'll love it till you listen to it on youtube. Listen to it there first before purchasing this just incase you don't like it.

I'll admit I liked Radiohead but I only knew the songs that appeared on the radio. OK Computer is often one of their more critically acclaimed albums and it's easy to see why. Stand out tracks are hard to choose as the album flows neatly into a complete package.

So I'm one of those suckers who is buying vinyl and at these prices no wonder my eyes water constantly. However in this case OK Computer is the first piece of vinyl that I feel moved to review. It is pressed on 2 discs and, if your turntable is decent enough, it will simply amaze you. The quality is superb and gives a fresh experience to what is a familiar album. The percussion, dynamics and sense of space delights.

Also as a by product the album is obviously split into 4 chunks and these also work in a beautiful way. Take side 2, Exit Music - Let Down - Karma Police. Starting with a casually strummed guitar and cavernous voice and ending with a buzzing electric death cry the journey through those 3 songs is sublime. It has made me appreciate the music much more than the casual CD experience.
