The best album by Radiohead? Many believe that OK Computer is the top of the band's carreer. Sometimes I think this album is their best, sometimes I think Kid A is; it really depends on my mood I guess. Whatever the case, OK Computer is a masterpiece of alt rock.

From the opening guitar riff of "Airbag" until the last *ding* of "The Tourist", this album presents you with a dystopian world not much unlike ours where there are neon signs, transport and motorways, governments that don't speak for us and people whose opinion is of no consequence at all. I love Radiohead's lyrics overall, and even though their future albums would become deeper, I think OK Computer holds some of Thom Yorke's best lyrics. Maybe I'm pushing a little bit too much, but this as close as Radiohead gets to a concept album (though Kid A makes for a strong contender.)

Musically speaking, this is the peak of Radiohead's first "era" so to speak. They refined their style with this album, incorporating a lot of texture to their songs which go through a lot of phases in just 5 minutes or so. "Paranoid Android" is the best example of this, which could be their best song if not one of the best.

There are many people who just can't get into it. My friends have told me it's a very depressing album to listen to. "Let Down" and "No Surprises" (two of my favorite songs by the band) sure are sadness made into songs, but as they are sad, they are beautiful. If you focus on the lyrics, this album comes off as a very depressing view of the future with no happy ending in sight. But every time I finish listening to OK Computer, the music is just too beautiful and amazing that I end up wanting to keep listening it on loop.

Radiohead is the biggest group of the alternative rock. OK Computer is their masterpiece. But, I love listening to Exit Music from Brad Mehldau Trio as a jazzist.

Best album by Radiohead? Pretty discussable (For me is The Bends)
Best album of 1997?Sure.
Best album of the 90? Nope. But should be in a top 10.
Best album ever? Never

What else is there to be said about this utter behemoth? It destroys the conventions of art rock and rebuilds them simultaneously. The fact that it's the highest rated album on this site and not one part of me disagrees, speaks legions for it to me. It and it's sequel are the greatest testaments to what can be achieved when being subjected to depression.

Love this album from top to bottom but my favorite deep cuts are Lucky, Climbing Up The Walls, and Electioneering.
