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?).

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.

No. Not the Beatles, not Oasis or Led Zep. OK Computer by Radiohead is indeed the most compelling case for "best album ever status".

It is timeless, and haven't aged a bit since 1997. It's been MANY years since i last listened to it, and was shocked by how good and modern it still sounds. Unlike many bands befor and since,Radiohead created their own sound and atmosphere. This is a brilliant and varied album, with great tunes and a lot of heart.

This is Radiohead's and Britain's best album of the decade. It has absolutely no weak points. It is intelligent, lyrically precise and meaningful without being pretentious or (as some would have you believe) the least bit depressing. And musically, it is the work of craftsmen as well as artists. Almost nothing is left to chance, with every note, every instrument and even every silence planned and laboured over to get the maximum effect.
The melodies are rich and emotive, while on the base Radiohead have transcended normal rock sounds to include the more frenetic beats so characteristic of the best of 90's music. This is most evident in the looped opener, Airbag, a track which manages to be both "rockin" and funky at the same time. And the first few minutes of Paranoid Android are clearly a progression from the traditional rock beats to be found in earlier 'Head songs.
Compared with this, their previous two albums are merely introductions; exercises which were useful for refining their talents ready for their magnum opus. This is not to denegrate the Bends and Pablo Honey, but simply to emphasize the gulf between this work and everything that had gone before in the career of the band. This was where Radiohead came of age, achieving the highest success both in terms of popularity and musical accomplishment. The only downside is that they now have so much to live up to.... It will take something very special indeed to match OK Computer.

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.

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!
