Our Review

Their previous album, 1995’s The Bends, represented the perfect balance between pop and its experimental edges. OK Computer would gently toss the pop tag aside (2000’s Kid A would be less gentle with its ruthless artistic ambition). Using their guitars to create seemingly endless layers of sound, adding strangely alluring keyboards and throwing together a few off-kilter rhythms, the British quintet fashioned themselves as both pioneers in their “alternative” rock field and as throwbacks to the album-oriented rock of Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin and Rush where much of the music’s power depended on its overriding concept. The deliberately disjointed “Paranoid Android” represents the band’s increasingly complex side as it breaks into various pieces within itself and settles for no easy ways out. “Lucky,” “Karma Police” and the haunting sweep of “Exit Music (For a Film)” are, by comparison, almost motionless in their sonic waves, floating on warm, fuzzy sonic beds. Not exactly space-rock in the strictest sense, but definitely music looking to travel beyond the usual constraints of time and space.

Customer Reviews

One of the Greats! (5 stars)
Exile on Main Street, Pet Sounds, Sgt Pepper, The Wall, London Calling, etc. Yes this work belongs among the greatest of all time. Not for the faint at heart- requires numerous listens to fully appreciate.

On the island (5 stars)
Exceptional album for those who actually listen to actual music. I think it should be listened to in it's entirety. OK Computer is beautifully haunting. Through Yorke's vocals, the lyrics, and the music, Radiohead creates a deep landscape to immerse yourself and feel something.

There is good music. There is great music. There is incredible music. There is Ok Computer. (5 stars)
This album is musical perfection. The most complete album ever created. This album will change your life as it has changed mine. That is not an exaggeration.

Biography

Formed: 1989 in Oxford, England
Genre: Alternative
Years Active: '90s, '00s, '10s

Radiohead were one of the few alternative bands of the early '90s to draw heavily from the grandiose arena rock that characterized U2's early albums. But the band internalized that epic sweep, turning it inside out to tell tortured, twisted tales of angst and alienation. Vocalist Thom Yorke's pained lyrics were brought to life by the group's three-guitar attack, which relied on texture — borrowing as much from My Bloody Valentine and Pink Floyd as R.E.M. and Pixies — instead of virtuosity....
