About this album

OK Computer is the third album by the English band Radiohead, released in . It reached #1 on the UK Albums Chart and marked Radiohead’s highest entry into the American market at the time, where it debuted at #21. OK Computer expanded the band’s worldwide popularity, becoming the last Radiohead album to have a delayed release outside of the United Kingdom. As of 2007, it has been certified triple platinum in the UK and double platinum in the US. OK Computer included the singles “Paranoid Android”, “Karma Police” and “No Surprises”.

The album was recorded in rural Oxfordshire and Bath, England with Nigel Godrich, who would work with the band on all their future recordings. Although OK Computer was dominated by guitar, its expansive sound and wide range of influences set it apart from many of the and bands popular at the time, laying the groundwork for Radiohead’s later, more work. The lyrics, by Thom Yorke, and the album’s artwork by Yorke and frequent collaborator Stanley Donwood, emphasised themes such as consumerism, social disconnection, political stagnation and modern malaise, though the band denied they set out to make a concept album.


Upon its release, OK Computer received almost unanimously positive reviews. Consensus among critics was that the album was a landmark of its time and would have far-reaching impact and importance.

    I know this is shameless self-promotion, but if you guys enjoy this album like I have for years, you might like my own self-released album. It's a collection of ambient tracks, but it's hugely inspired by Sigur Rós, Riceboy Sleeps, Brian Eno, Radiohead, etc. so if you're into any of those fine names you might like this!! You can find it at bestghosts.bandcamp.com

    "Best album of nineties. Best album since The Dark Side of the Moon, Easily one of the best albums of all time." There were many many many albums between 1973 and 1997 that both equalled and exceeded Dark Side. including albums by Pink Floyd. And even this.
