Great Album. This was Radiohead's gem. Manages to capture a computeresque feeling without forfeiting a rock sound. However, this album does not belong at number one, come on. This is not better than Revolver or Dark Side. Respect to Radiohead, but they are the most overrated band ever.

I have never found an album that resonated so greatly from the 1st listen! 20 seconds into Airbag I knew I had found something special. The rest of the album continued to amaze and even after almost 200 listens, it still sounds just as awe-inspiring as the first listen. If you haven't experienced this album, do yourself a favor and listen.

A very highly acclaimed album, and indeed my favourite by Radiohead.

It is heavily laden with great tracks, in particular No Surprises, Paranoid Android, Karma Police, Airbag and Let Down.

I was never too keen on Fitter Happier, and it does ruin the flow for me slightly, but overall a wonderful album.

The album was original going to be called Hokey Dokey Computer, however having finished the recording they found that title too jolly

Probably not much I can add to everyone else's comments here, apart from the fact that it is an essential album that's still completely fresh and exciting almost 20 years later. In truth, I'm not a massive Radiohead fan outside of this record and, the bends, but there is no denying the originality, the freshness, and pure invention of this record. A benchmark by which future albums will be measured.

Easily in my top 5 of all time. Not a long shot to say top 3 instead. If any album can be described as mind-bending, it's this one. This album does EVERYTHING right. This lyrics are still thought-provoking to this day, the instrumentation and songwriting are flawless, the vocals are haunting and beautiful, and I'm sure there's bound to be some more. Paranoid Android is also one of my top 10 favorite songs of all time, although many songs on here aren't very far. Every song on OK Computer is excellent in its own special way.

It's hard to believe this album isn't even 20 years old yet at the time of me writing this comment. This is one of those albums that changes not only one's perspective on music, but on life as well. And for that, as well as everything else I mentioned, it deserves nothing less of a perfect score.

Not as perfect as the bends but still perfect nonetheless, easily in the top 10 all time
