OK Computer

OK Computer is Radiohead's third studio album, and is thefollow up to their breakthrough second album 'The Bends'. Combining elements of bombastic prog rock with alternating time signatures and traditional pop songwriting, the album is a marked departure from the sound of the band's two previous efforts. Includes the singles 'Paranoid Android', 'Karma Police' and 'No Surprises'.

Arguably the greatest rock album ever produced, OK Computer not only made use of a very powerful device - melancholy - in ways I have never heard before or since in music, but the band also packed meaning into every individual component of these songs. So if you read into a track like 'Let Down', you realise that the drumbeat in the first two-fifths of the song has a dull, "let down" feel (a floor-tom is being used to keep the beat as opposed to a snare, which only comes in later, in the part of the song which is about resurgence). Or you might notice the alien-like electric guitar sounds in Subterranean Homesick Alien. And this is only the music - listen to the lyrics closely if you really want something to read into! The only thing preventing me from giving it a 10 is the fact that you have to be in the right mood to listen to it, because it can be overly-depressing.
