I'm not sure if I would call this one perfect. There are albums that I like more, anyway. But I do think it's very good, and it's clear (at least to me) that Thom Yorke put thought into every note, every dynamic change, and every choice of instrument, to make this album his masterpiece. And to that end, I can respect this album's spot at number one.

Best Tracks: Paranoid Android, No Surprises, Lucky, Subterranean Homesick Alien

Dissecting the nihilism, consumerism, and neuroticism so rampant in modern life is no easy task. But somehow, Radiohead make a forward-thinking, enjoyable record without seeming pretentious or overmatched.

Favorites: Airbag, Paranoid Android, Karma Police

this was my first Radiohead album, which is always going to a millstone for anyone into alternative music. i was young and it took some time to get my head around it at first, but it paid off. OK Computer is close to perfection.

I listened to this album after a couple years of not touching this. I've loved it for so long, but drifted away, for fear of getting sick of it. At the height of my love for this album, it was my second or third favorite album of all time. Yet, I kept a bit of distance. And I gotta say, hearing OK Computer after so long was like coming home. Corny, I know, but I have no other way of describing it.

Greatest album of all time? Why not?

This album is quite easily the greatest of all time. It opens with Airbag, an incredible guitar rock song that contains a riff that should have been used more, some great vocal work from Thom, and an absolutely amazing tremolo picked synced guitar solo from Ed and Jonny. When this song ends it's impossible to imagine how the band is going to top the first track on this LP. That is, of course until the four bleeps start, opening Paranoid Android, which is easily the greatest song of all time. It opens in Cm, with some of Thom's most atmospheric vocals during the chorus and some amazing harmonization from Jonny. Then part two begins, with the key changing to Am and the song getting very tense. Then, the solo begins, and we get one of the greatest atonal guitar solos played by Jonny Greenwood, with some crazy tremolo picking, string bends, and it all manages to fit despite the fact that this section constantly switches from 4/4 to 7/8 and back. Then, it ends with an A/F chord and the third part begins in Cm/Dm. Some rather ethereal vocals, Thom's acoustic guitar, and Phil's constant background drumming open this section, with the best vocal harmonies in any Radiohead song guiding us through. This section ends with some of the most critical lyrics on society ever to have been written, and all too soon we're back to Am, and Jonny's second solo begins. Some uniscent bends take up the second part of this solo, and then we're down to one of the craziest riffs to have graced a Radiohead song. And suddenly it all ends.
Then, Subterranean Homesick Alien's ambient passages open, with some of the most mellow and sad lyrics guide us through to the much louder chorus. Then, we're back to the ambient verses, and Thom sings of a narrator wishing he was abducted by aliens. After that we're back to the chorus, and the song closes the way it opened.

Well, I could do this for the next 9 tracks but I think the first three should suffice in explaining how brilliant this album is. It truly deserves it's spot as the greatest album of all time.
