ConsNot to everybody's taste

OK Computer is the third album by Oxford based alternative rock band Radiohead. Their first album "Pablo Honey" was nothing to write home about but their second "The Bends" was a rock classic. However, their third, "OK Computer" released in 1997 took a quantum shift into totally different...

“The Album of The Decade”

published 09/12/2005

ProMusic which'll stay fresh for a lifetime.

ConsTakes a while to grow on you.

Radiohead - OK Computer (1997) 10/10 When i think of all the albums that i've listened to which have had a genuine effect on me, the one album which always sits at the top of the list is this. Most people who know me, will know that i'm a huge Radiohead fan. I've always been fascinated by the...

Consnone that come to mind

Radiohead are a band often billed by the pop media as 'depressing', and on the surface you might be hard-pushed to disagree. The tracks bandied about before 'OK Computer' was released, namely 'electioneering' and an early version of 'Airbag' provided little insight into the direction the band...

ConsIt takes a good few listens to enjoy.

I have recently been rifling through my entire cd collection,, because I realised recently that I really don't listen to 60% of the cds that I own. So, its out with any Oasis which remains, equally any Marilyn Manson (shush, I went through an 'awkward' patch) and various other delights I won't...

“OK nah its pretty good”

published 13/12/2000

ProGood strong tracks

ConsDoesn't really know where its heart lies

This is a complex, slightly schizophrenic album; it can’t quite make its mind up if it wants to be guitar driven like its predecessor the bends or keyboard driven. The lyrics throughout the album are a strange and melancholy bunch I won’t pretend I understand them. I’m not sure they are meant to...

I'm in an extremely good mood tonight, despite the fact that my computer speakers keep randomly earthing at me and that the radiator next to me is belting out the climate of Egypt (just let me open a window ..), I am indeed in a very pleasant state of mind. Unfortunately, my team wolves lost to...

Consnope...can't think of any

OK Computer is, in my view, the greatest album of all time. It takes you on a roller coaster of emotions with its haunting melodies, Thom Yorkes unique voice and Radiohead’s up most originality. Radiohead must be, apart from the all mighty Pink Floyd, the only band to do experimental albums...

Well as I've been away from music ops again its time to return to what I actually know and the subject of this op is going to be a band I am rediscovering; Radiohead. So after releasing two albums, which revolutionized music the world waited to see exactly how Radiohead were going to follow up...

“Pop Is Alive”

published 17/10/2002

ProA Giant Among The Little People.

ConsThe Sullied Later Albums.

After producing something as special 'The Bends', Radiohead really had a task on their hands with the follow up. 'OK Computer', however, is majestic and proved beyond doubt that they were (if you forget 'Amnesiac')incapable of producing anything that was slight and easily forgotten. Radiohead...

Consfitter happier?

There is only one 'word' to describe this album - out-of-this-world. After Pablo Honey, one of the best debut albums ever, many people wondered how Radiohead could better it, but they did just that with the Bends. Though the Bends was amazing, and is one of my favourite albums, I believe they...

“An Airbag Saved My Life”

published 28/03/2001

Pro60 minutes of bliss

ConsLet Down is a let down

When Radiohead entered the studio to record the follow-up to Pablo Honey, the world didn't expect the five boys from England to produce anything as great as "Creep" but when "The Bends" was released in 1995, critics and fans bought it up and named it, arguably, best album of 1995. When the boys...

After the very succesful ‘Bends’ album in 95 (good year for indie), where radiohead scored a hit with anthemic songs like ‘Just’ and ‘Fake Plastic Tress’, the band returned 2 years later with OK computer, which in my opinion is definetly 1 of best (if not the...

ProEverything

ConsNothing

OK Computer, the third offering from Radiohead, is perhaps the zenith of their career so far. This album is truly a work of art and is a landmark in rock history. But every review of this album will tell you this so I’ll skip all the boring details of how Radiohead started off by being...

“more than just a classic”

published 26/06/2000

Prounspeakably beautiful and perfect

ConsI wish it all weren't so true

Before OK Computer, I had a very clearly defined concept of classic albums. It was a simple concept; just that works of absolute genius needed work on the part of the listener to get to grips with. In order to be understood and appreciated fully, it was essential to listen to them again and again...

Consabsolutely none

OK Computer is Radiohead's third album. First came Pablo Honey which is apparently bad. It contained the second single Creep. This song although entering the charts at around number seventy, lauched the bands career. At this time it broke the charts in Israel as here was the only country where it...
