Electioneering is not a weak moment in the album, it's a rockin' moment! Top tune among many.

The only moment that might be hard to grasp is Fitter Happier because it's a computerised voice and very dark piano. But for me I grew to love it quickly for the beautiful background sounds and the piano. Also the lyrics are kind of funny in places such as "frozen winter shit"...

For me this album is like every track could be my favourite on the album and they I have been obsessed with all of them at one point or another. The small details is the main thing about this album, there are so many of them such as on Climbing Up The Walls and Lucky with those sounds at the beginning, grabs my attention. Most other bands just go straight into the songs and try hard to grab your attention by having a riff straight away but Radiohead don't do that with a countless number of their songs. Still to this day, Radiohead put 100% effort into making every song. If you don't like a song or two it's without no doubt that they did this.

I don't think any other album even comes close to this for the greatest album of all time. Dark Side of the Moon, for example, hasn't aged particularly well, and hasn't got the deeply moving undercurrent that OKC has. It's not even Floyd's best LP (Wish You Were Here is). Radiohead's discovery of atmospheric layerings comes to the fore on this album. The 90s zeitgeist of disillusionment, alienation, and the collective realisation of being screwed by the establishment, is captured here like no other band was capable of. It is experimental, it is progressive, it is melodic, it is enduring, it is even transcendental when you close your eyes and get taken away on the tendrils of Thom's vocal range especially in songs like Exit Music. Electioneering is its one weak moment amongst a sea of of exceptional music. It has more of a B side feel to it for mine.

Rock music is not for everyone, but this album is. There is something about it that didn't just speak for a generation of youths. It speaks for everyone who sees through all the deception and the bullshit thwarting our evolution as a species. And that is some sort of an extraordinary achievement.

Whenever I hear the first few seconds of Airbag I know I have to listen to the whole album. I never get sick of it.

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.
