Overrated and overproduced, but still a wonderful piece of work. I can never say this is the greatest album ever, but I won't deny that Radiohead worked hard to make something that will live on through the years thanks to it's beauty and Thom's versatile vocals.

Exit Music (For a Film) is probably my favorite Radiohead song.

Boy, I steered clear of this album for a while because of all the hype around it. I hate it when I feel like I’m forced to take sides, by which I mean, agree that it’s “like, the ultimate masterpiece” or “soooooo overrated”. Meh, the word “masterpiece” is overused anyways.

I’m no expert, but this mostly sounds like U2 meets Talking Heads. In fact, during Airbag I felt like I was listening to a darker version of Achtung Baby. Also, Thom Yorke is trying hard to make his lyrics deep and meaningful, and somewhat succeeds, but he tackles some pretty predictable topics. I mean, social alienation and a criticism on consumerist culture. Hardly groundbreaking.

Despite all this, I really, really liked the album. Yeah, I’ve been listening to it for months. Radiohead get one thing totally right: the atmosphere. They channel a ton of anguish and paranoia (relatable emotions in this modern age) and they leave you utterly terrified, yet somehow comforted. Like a sympathetic voice in the darkness.

My bet is that the atmosphere is the reason why Radiohead albums are so widely appreciated. The secret ingredient. As for OK Computer, it’s alright, it neatly fits the profile of “consensus favorite”. Unique masterpiece? I would say no. Do I like it? Yes, a lot.

As the first album I ever bought, OK Computer holds a special place in my heart. I've probably listened to it over 100 times and I still find myself piecing together what it all means. Though the album's lyrics criticize the effects of technology on society, the musicianship seems to embrace it. Resultantly, OKC's concept addresses the benefits and detriments of technology on modern society, embodied in the cyborg poetry of Fitter Happier. With common themes like transportation, alienation, individuality, politics, introspection, and paranoia, this album beautifully illustrates premillennial angst as society delves deeper and deeper into a world consumed by technology.

Key tracks: Paranoid Android, Airbag, Karma Police

The first album in one of the greatest musical trilogies of all time! This is the way I see it:

1. Ok Computer - The World beginning its heartless metamorphoses.
2. Kid A - The world reaching its climactic Armageddon.
3. Amnesiac - The world surpassing its much needed reincarnation - though still in a state of desolation -with clues leading back to the memories of a past-life.
