Great album, great band, great price. Some info:

OK Computer is the third album by the English alternative rock band Radiohead, released on 16 June 1997. Radiohead recorded the album in rural Oxfordshire and Bath, during 1996 and early 1997, with producer Nigel Godrich. Although most of the music is dominated by guitar, OK Computer's expansive sound and wide range of influences set it apart from many of the Britpop and alternative rock bands popular at the time, and it laid the groundwork for Radiohead's later, more experimental work. Radiohead do not consider OK Computer a concept album; however, its lyrics and visual artwork emphasise common themes such as consumerism, social disconnection, political stagnation, and modern malaise.

OK Computer reached number one on the UK Albums Chart and marked Radiohead's highest entry into the American market at the time, debuting at number 21 on the Billboard 200. The album expanded the band's worldwide popularity, and has been certified triple platinum in the UK, double platinum in the US, and platinum in Australia. OK Computer received considerable acclaim at the time of its release, and has been listed by music critics and listener polls as one of the greatest albums ever recorded.

All songs written by Thom Yorke, Jonny Greenwood, Ed O'Brien, Colin Greenwood, and Phil Selway.

Top deal - still a joy to listen to:thumbsup:

No 'Bends' but still an excellent price for a great album.

excellent deal

In most people's top 5 albums

Hot! I love Radiohead, and this album is a masterpiece!

No 'Kid A' but still an excellent price for a great album.

Good price, but it's been available at] HMV for £2.99 for over a week

No 'A Rush of Blood to the Head' but still an excellent price for a great album.

I'M OBVIOUSLY JOKING.

Personally and imho this is the most overrated album in the history of music.

But u understand everyone has different tastes in music.

Good deal though

Thanks for letting us know. AGAIN.

Outstanding Album. buy, buy buy!!

As good a price and as great an album as this is, surely everyone who would want it already owns it? Personally, it would take a good price on one of the deluxe editions to put my hand in my pocket again.

Hot price still.

Not sure how this can be stated as overrated? Radiohead have never been commerical, that was the whole point! You either like it or hate it. I love it!

Superb album! I was introduced to Radiohead properly (i.e. listening to all their albums) only a few years back after already being a big fan of Muse and to a lesser extent Coldplay. Every album of Radiohead's since (and including) The Bends has been stunning.

Listened to it again today as OP jogged my memory. Just gets better and better with repeat listens... Thanks OP!

Always preffered the bends personally. still a great price.

It's funny to watch people who were in diapers when this came out ragging on it to look like they've got a clue. Kind of like those people who genuinely think it's fashionable to hate the Beatles. It's like 'Fine, hate the Beatles. You're probably a much cooler person than I am. But I don't need to know.'

OK Computer is something you need to know, if you care about music. You don't need to like it. Maybe it'll even turn out you hate it. But you need to know this album to know the state of music in the late 90's. You can dislike it, but you can't ignore it. If you want to talk about music, this is part of your education. That's how you know it's a classic.

If you want to say this album isn't an important one, then you don't like music. Maybe you sometimes put some tunes on in the background to make you feel better now that Big Brother's finished. Maybe sometimes you like to dance with a hairbrush in your hand. Maybe you even like playing Rock Band in your underpants. But you don't like music if you haven't taken the time to know it.

I own this tbh not a huge radiohead fan though Prefer yorkes solo stuff

Great album!

Its probably due to the fact that after just a few weeks of it being released it featured at NUMBER 1 in 'The Best Albums ever' Poll in Q Magazine....... what a joke !!!!:roll:

Now tell me thats not overrating it !!!

What a complete load of claptrap.


1) I was 20 when this album came out , so not quite in diapers:roll:

2) I was heavily into Radiohead when this album came out

3) I own 4 guitars, 1 bass, a full sized drum kit and play regular in a 2 bands - so you are probably right, i havent a clue about music :whistling:

4) Im not saying its a dreadful album - Just that it has been (and is) overhyped so much that some people raved about how good it was before they had even heard it !! - thats how ott the hype was. And for me, it spoilt the album - along with the fact it was so far away from their stuff on 'The Bends', which WAS a great album.


Once again, just because YOU think it was an amazing album, doesnt mean EVERYONE ELSE should think the same or else they are idiots/kids/thick/stupid etc etc

Johann Sebastian Bach if he was alive may not have enjoyed the album, but does that mean he wouldnt have had a clue about music???

I feel that this album is a bit like marmite....you either love it or hate it - for many reasons i hated it.....but thats just my 'opinion'.

That's why I pay little attention to any media and make my own mind up on something. It's nowhere near as good as various polls/reviews would have you believe, but that is not the fault of the album.

There are some fantastic songs on it, Lucky, Exit, Subterranean Homesick Alien & No Surprises, to name but a few. I don't think it's as good an album as The Bends, but I still think it's a bloody good album in its own right. I reckon if anyone picked it up without knowing anything about Radiohead or the history of the album they'd be well impressed with it.

It's all about personal taste, though :thumbsup:

The greatest album of all time

Read what I wrote again. And it's OK if you disagree. But I wasn't talking about whether or not this is the best album ever, or that everyone MUST like it. In fact I explained that TWICE, just in case some people couldn't read it the first time. :thinking: So good work there.

Once again: It's about whether or not it's an important album. And it is. It is an utterly defining album, in the same way that Pet Sounds or Nevermind was. You can't claim to be interested in this stuff if you haven't taken the time to get to know those albums.

Unless you're only interested in classical music or, I don't know, serialism or some crap like that, you need to know about this album.

What an album! Give your ears a present.

If u Ain't got it are you really gonna buy it

The album almost single handedly destroyed most mediocre britpop bands like suede, pulp, kula shaker etc. But at the same time it spawned the likes of Coldplay, Keane and Jame Blunt. It still sounds like something from the future even after owning for over 12 years. Still no Kid A though.

Saw them at Glastonbury festival, they were amazing!

Also do a pink floyd and Beatles set as well.

Great price for their 2nd best album, Kid A of course is first (How to disappear completely really makes that album special).

Almost as good as the bends

My fav album of all time

I find this album seriously depressing and never understood how anyone could like it so much. Didn't vote either way.
