    1 Radiohead - OK Computer
    (1997)
    Using the textured soundscapes of The Bends as a launching pad, Radiohead delivered another startlingly accomplished set of modern guitar rock with OK Computer.

    1) CLASSICAL, JAZZ, BOSSA, INSTRUMENTAL SHIT LIKE THAT
    Really? You're... you're into... Okay, how did you find this journal? Well, dear music lover, on the plus side, you're probably going to have an easier time than anyone digging electronic music, since there's a lot of instrumental techno out there that's right up your alley. …
