5.0 out of 5 stars Hard work to get into, but so, SO worth it., 24 Sept. 2013
This review is from: OK Computer (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.
