Several gems, and maybe one poo ball. A great album. Easily one of the best from the 90's. From Obrien and Greenwoods guitar parts weaving together, to Thom Yorkes bittersweet voice and sad lyrics. This is a wonderful album.

This album sounds a bit of Kid A but more guitar and drums and bass. It has it's futuristic sound to it, that is clearly heard, but beyond that they sound more like a rock band that is SMART. It's a good album with a great sound, and is quite possibly one of the greatest albums of the 1990's. It's got the fierceness of the albums before it, and the more mellowed out and technical sound that would eventually conquer their future sound. OK Computer is an album only Radiohead could complete. The booklet is also filled with wierd artwork, although looking a lot less strange than their next two albums, it has a white background with blue marks and such. For the first time I've seen of Radiohead the booklet contains the lyrics, although it is sometimes hard to understand, they give you most of them. The album shows Radiohead in their best form.

This album you should already own, how about that? If you don't then you should have it within the next week. If you don't believe me, search the net and find a site that will give you samples of the songs. If you like the first four songs then you'll like the entire album.
