5 stars Several years ago I was introduced to RADIOHEAD's debut album and thought they were excellent. "OK Computer" marks a big bold step for RADIOHEAD blending all of the right elements into a magnificent work of art. "Ok Computer" draws on elements from PINK FLOYD to PORCUPINE TREE to U2 all wrapped in a 90's psychedelia. Songs are all well written and offer some real memorable melodies and extended spacey interludes. At times the vocals are kindly distorted, the instruments warped and juxtaposed with sound effects giving the listener a wild contrast of sounds to interpret. Songs are generally very melodic and slow with some nice loud breaks in the mood to keep you on our toes. RADIOHEAD are a very talented band which offer some great guitar, bass, keyboard and percussion throughout. "Ok Computer" marks RADIOHEAD's most creative and sophisticated piece of work to date and is a real winner... This is a must have album and is highly recommended to those who love a bit space in their lives. Around the edges this album is similar stylistically to PORCUPINE TREE.
