“jimmypage”,

If you choose to continue using this site, I’d ask you to get a new username. You’re attitude is a disgrace to an amazing name and musician.
Thanks

French comment :
Radiohead est un de mes groupes préférés, j'ai écouté tous leurs albums et depuis The Bends, j'ai rarement était déçu. OK Computer est un des premiers album que j'ai écouté et je ne suis peut être pas objectif mais il est pour moi un des meilleurs albums de Rock de l'histoire. De plus, les mélodies sont assez simples et elle sont donc faciles à apprendre au piano...
Mentions spéciales pour le titre Paranoid Android (le meilleur de Radiohead) et Karma Police.

From the opening chords of "airbag" to the injuries of "Lucky" you can't deny, this is a closer of it's century.
In many ways, I see a lot in commom with his rival, "The Dark Side of The Moon", they are twins, they both define what society was, and, in some way, It still is today. Especially, they define what is sickining about It, the lowest lows of human nature, both of wich can be seem on the covers of the respective albums, who defines them so well, and marries beautifully with the music inside It.
From the tough times I've been through, I can see why evereyone can relate at least something from this album, I remember singing along Karma Police, as I tought It was such a good song, as It speaked for me in someway that I don't even understand to this day. I remember reflecting on "No Suprises" and agreeing at every single mocking Thom Yorke wrote at that song to the casuality of commom life. And in this year I remember when Paranoid Android clicked for me, It was right after my grandpa died, and I just needed some song to freak out, and Paranoid Android was my choice, and I did, I did freak out, jumping at my bed like I was convulsonating.
I can understand very well why It is number one, our generation, needed something, or someone, to be praised, to be put on a high pedestal, and say, "yeah, we have our Beatles, we have our The Dark Side of The Moon", and Radiohead was the choice. And It feels good to call them the best, because they are still there, nor like The Beatles, or Pink Floyd, they are still there, with their A Moon Shaped Pool, still marking generations with fresh stuff. Yeah, I can understand, It is not my personal choice, but I think most of us can understand this.

It's good and stuff, and I like it cause it's good... Actually though, from Pablo Honey, to the Bends, then to this is outstanding. Pablo Honey to me isn't great, but it has it's moments, and also Creep. The Bends is such a leap forward it's hard to believe it's from the same band. The bends to OK Computer is also that, except they're both 10/10. I love this album to death, and the reception it gets is very well deserved. It makes me really happy that Radiohead can still manage to pull off an album close, or on par with the quality of Ok Computer. There's quite literally so much to say that I couldn't fit it in this comment, so to sum it up, it's actually as good as the ratings make it seem, but it's not to sound shallow, it's just actually a gosh dang mastapiece.

"Ok Computer" is a huge step up from "The Bends". Even though there is no mistake that it's the same band, it is also very clear that Radiohead has matured a lot in both their sound and their lyrics. I think the area where they improved the most between the two albums is in the production, thanks to the incredible job of Nigel Godrich. While in "The Bends", there were two kinds of songs (the guitar-driven 90's song and the ballad), in "Ok Computer", Radiohead manages to create a lot of different soundscapes in their songs all through the album. What's even better is that it all works very well together.

Even though I don't think it's the greatest album of all-time, I can easily see why it is considered one of the best. I think it shows a lot of promise of what's about to come for Radiohead. Because they are going to give us even better albums later in my opinion (In Rainbows, The King Of Limbs, A Moon Shaped Pool).

There's not one song that I don't like in this album, but if I had to find a weakness in it, I'd say that it kind of looses its momentum in the last 2 or 3 songs. It's not that they aren't good, it's just that I don't think they run as fluently as the rest of the album. It's like the last bite of cake that you didn't really need to eat: it's still cake, but you were already full.

But all in all, a truly great album, my 4th favorite from Radiohead.

I love every song on the album and can't decide which is the best. That pretty much means it's the best album of all time for me.

When I first listened to this album as a musician I decided to pick up the guitar songs that I listened to. And I was very surprised when I was able to pick up most of the songs on the acoustic guitar, and even sing, though I do not know how to do it, but it sounded good. I think that a few albums can vary this simple chord progressions, and sound so difficult but at the same time to be cool.
OK Computer sounds in nuances! Try to pick up Kid A!
