It's a good, probably even great album, but coming from someone that is neutral to Radiohead, the album seems to get a little pretentious at times.

This may be the greatest album of all time. Really, Thom Yorke and the rest of the band made a masterpiece here! I loved every second! Seriously, this has aged beautifully!
Favorite tracks: Airbag, Paranoid Android, Subterranean Homesick Alien, Exit Music (For a Film), Karma Police, Electioneering, Climbing up the Walls, No Surprises, Lucky
Least favorite track: The Tourist

It's a fantastic record, my top 30 or 40 of all time but I just can't see it as either the best nor the most important album ever. I know I will get much hate for this, but as much as I like them, Radiohead are overrated here.

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
