I lived during this time... and am ashamed that I got into Kid A before I got into OK Computer. I remember Creep (I was like 10 years old and that even was played at dances and stuff, but OK Computer just didn't get attention). Not that that matters, but I'm very curious why in 1997 this album didn't explode the universe. Maybe it's cause I stopped watching MTV during this time, the radio didn't play it, and most people I knew at that time were unfortunately talking about backstreet boys.

Any way I digress. This is a great album that I didn't get into until maybe 2002 after I found Radiohead again with Kid A.

Probably the greatest album of my generation from front to back. No one saw this transformation from the already stellar Bends album.

Paranoid Android wows you with its changes throughout
Climbing the Walls haunts
No Surprises gives solace and respite and isolates

A friend of mine brought Radiohead into my world when I was listening to mainstream 90's alternative rock. I didn't know music could sound like this; so wholly original and creative and spellbinding.

An update to my comment on this previously (December 2015). I've now listened to this a lot, my initial like has grown massively and I'm happy to give 95/100 rating....right up there with Kid A. The difference between this and The Bends is quite pronounced but an improvement it most certainly is...quite an achievement.

When I first heard "Paranoid Android", it sounded just really bad. Then "The Bends" made me fall in love with Radiohead. It took me some listens, but now "OK Computer" is the greatest album I have ever heard. It has such a dark beauty, the music and the lyrics fit so well together and every single note feels right for me. This is litterally a masterpiece and the best ever album.
Btw: Sorry for bad English!

Has it's bright lights (karma police, paranoid android, the tourist).... blah blah blah
It's still good, but not their peak album, eh .... fitter happier, filler .... subterranean homesick alien, should have been another genre ... can someone give me ideas to start enjoying this and consider it the greatest album of all-times? Thanks

I can see why this album is rated so highly as it is a very beautiful album, but I just can't get into it. I've listened to it 5 times now, and every time I expect to appreciate it more but I can't.
