This took a long time to grow on me, but now it's one of my favourite records of the 90s. Best album of all time? Not for me, but I can finally understand the love.

This was a sensational record back in 97, but Is it really worth the pole position here? I loved it back then, but I must agree with Thom Yorke who almost felt ashamed of all the hype. A brilliant record OK, but in the history of rock there are more groundbreaking records ! That said ...The 90's best recording along with The Bends I must agree it is!
My favourites are Subterranean homesick alien and Lucky, ...and of course Paranoid Android!

Great but quite overrated. You can definitely hear influence from trip-hop throughout the album.

Standout Tracks: Paranoid Android, Exit Music (For A Film), Let Down, Karma Police, Fitter Happier, Electioneering, No Surprises, Lucky

Excellent album but number 1...c'mon. Did it change anything, did it open that many doors? Rightfully acknowledged as a masterpiece but the best...oh do c'mon! You're bang on eyal91.

This album is the greatest piece of song-writing ever made in my opinion, everyone has their opinions and it's been expressed 417 times so you already know how good this album is.

There are very few albums in the world that can seem to get better on every listen. No matter how many times you listen to a song on OK Computer you will always notice something you failed to hear the previous time. One of the greatest works of art of the 20th century without doubt.

I'm in agreement with eyal91 on this one (great album, but not the best). The fault with this album is that it although it has several incredibly good songs, most of them are on the first half, so the second half loses momentum. Greatest album of all time? This isn't even the best Radiohead album.

This is an almost perfect disc, and of course the best of radiohead. The sound is really similar to the Dark Side of the Moon, i can see many things of Pink Floyd, like in Subterranean Homesick Alien. With very complex composition, this album is indisputable in my top 10.
