5 stars In a recent poll by Channel 4 television (UK) "OK!Computer" was rated as the greatest album of all time. I however, in my humblest of opinions, disagree. In fact I don't even think that it's the best Radiohead album- I think "The Bends" is. Everything about this album is fantastic, whether it be Yorke's powerful vocals or the bands ever changing rhythms an melodies, every track on this album is memorable. The best track on the album is "My Iron Lung", an electric guitar driven song which starts fairly deliecately but eventually bursts in to a heavy rock 'n roll jam before making a graceful return back to delicacy. Another excellent song on the album is "Just (Do It Yourself)", another great guitar songs with both electric and acoustic guitar making it a true classic, not to mention the intelligent and sympathetic drum beat played by Phil Selway, as on almost every Radiohead song. The final song that stands out as a true classic on this album is the beautiful "Fake Plastic Trees", which is a incredibly composed tearjerker, and a fan favourite amongst Radiohead fanatics. This album isn't just a must have for prog fans- it's a must have for music fans everywhere. 5 stars.
