"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!

I like the Bends better, but this is definitely one of the best albums I've listened to. "No Surprises" is the best song, holy crap.

I think what makes OK Computer such a highly acclaimed and interesting album is that it’s universal. The instrumentation, lyrics, production, and vocals are cold, disconnected, and isolated but also impassioned, powerful, and raw. The overarching message and theme of the record is that we constantly try to fill an emotional void in our lives with superficial and temporary thrills, such as travel, technology, alcohol, drugs, etc. to indulge our senses until inevitably returning to the inescapable emptiness and mundanities of everyday adult life. It’s definitely a bleak portrayal of how people behave and interact with one another, but still a very honest and real account of the human condition. Really the only weak link in the album for me is “Electioneering.” And it’s not even a bad song. It just feels out of place with the main narrative in my opinion
