5 stars Ok Computer helped to push forward ambitious rock music of nineties, and while I am looking at it from many angles,I see this as truly brilliant record. This album influenced acts like Oceansize, Sigur Ros and even Porcupine Tree, and contains timeless, well written and composed songs that fascinate me a lot. Radiohead keep their cool, grinding guitars from first two albums, and mix it with fantastic atmospheres, experimental use of instruments, great guitar textures, and bit of metal heavines. Each song is full of inspiring energy and emotions, for example, Climbing Up The Walls. Although this song is sad, with distorted guitars, some noises, Yorke's crying/screaming, eerie violins, it is like it has message that life is stil beautiful, and that God has plans for all of us, and nobody is forgotten. Thom Yorke shows his genius here in beautiful vocal melodies, fantastic, warm and expressive voice. My favourite track is Lucky, it can almost make me cry, it is about power of love. Sound quality is excellent, and each song is its own diamond. Anyone intersted in contemporary progressive rock should not miss this album. I think that Radiohead are bit underrated by progressive listeners, and I feel they might be one of the most progressive acts ever, together with King Crimson, thanks to their research approach, and their changing of styles through albums.
