4 stars Beautifully composed and performed with lush arrangements and an influential tone makes OK Computer a necessary listen for every lover of rock music classic and contemporary-- even if just for the experience.

Whether or not they are progressive, and whether or not you want Thom Yorke to just shut the hell up to stop his droning, it is hard to deny that there is too much good stuff going on here to ignore. Electronic atmospherics, creative and exciting guitar work, and a genuinely emotive sound which sinks in after multiple listens all mark this one as a keeper, even for a casual fan like me who usually sticks to the darker, more progressive groups (i.e. Porcupine Tree). I won't go so far to say that Radiohead is modern rock's savior, but I will readily admit that they are probably the most important crossover band today, and are important if for their uniqueness of style alone, which shines throughout this well-produced and moody album.

Songwriting: 4 Instrumental Performances: 3 Lyrics/Vocals: 4 Style/Emotion/Replay: 4
