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

5.0 out of 5 stars Unique, moving, brilliant. 25 July 2001
Format:Audio CD
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?).

5.0 out of 5 stars Voting for vinyl 29 Mar 2014
Format:Vinyl|Verified Purchase
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Bought to see the acclaim. 25 Oct 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hard work to get into, but so, SO worth it. 24 Sep 2013
Format:Audio CD
Many listener's first reaction to this album is to find it to be completely overrated and really a tad dull. This is true, at least for the first couple of listens, but once you're past those you'll slowly discover why it's rated as highly as it is.

I myself was once fortunate enough to find myself on holiday with absolutely nothing else to listen to bar this album, and in that time I warmed up to it, but that was only the beginning of a journey. Every time I return to this album I find something new jumps out and grabs my ears, be it a catchy hook I had somehow previously ignored, or a subtle little bit of instrumentation that had previously slipped past my ears. There is always something new there.

The only thing I can really compare it to in these regards is the brilliant song 'A Little Man and a House' by Cardiacs, my personal favourite song of all time, which, although initially appearing to be a very simple tune, slowly reveals its own depth and complexity with each new listen, however, while 'A Little Man and a House' is merely one song, here we have an entire albums worth of such an experience, and for this, I am thankful.

5.0 out of 5 stars Love it 13 May 2014
Format:Audio CD
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Radiohead - Exit Music 22 Oct 2006
By Red on Black TOP 50 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD
Setting aside claims that is the greatest album ever which it clearly is not, this does not detract from its brilliance. The downside is that I could live without Electioneering (so i understand could the band itself) and "Fitter Happier" must have been great fun for Mr Yorke being very clever and post modern and having a good twiddle around on the PC to boot. Frankly, and sorry diehard fans, but Karma police and No Surprises tend to get the fast forward button on my CD. The upside is that "Airbag", "Climbing up the Walls" and The Tourist are stunning while "Lucky" is their work of genius. Paranoid Android may be Bohemian Rhapsody for the 90s but when Thom exhorts it to "Come on rain down on me, from a great height" I sing along like a failed X factor contestant. Why not the greatest album? Reason one, its not "Pet Sounds" or "Blood on the Tracks". Reason two, you could argue that the Bends is as good if not better.

Finally for some fun (a very un-Radiohead quality I admit) burn the the following tracks from Kid A, Amnesiac, and Hail to the Thief and then add Mark Ronson's cover of "Just". This doesn't half make a class album!
