Really hard to compare their similarities - two different generations. I'd love to hear what you find similar. Smile

In this case i have to go with Radiohead. Revolver is a classic with some really iconic masterpieces. But OK Computer is just another animal.

Revolver for me.  Radiohead are good, but not even close to being in the same league with the Beatles.

I will always choose The Beatles of Radiohead any day, any time, no matter the albums compared. This means that the worst Beatles album is still better to me than the best of Radiohead.

For influence alone, it would be a walkover for Beatles.  But the question was on preference and I find OK Computer a more powerful album than Revolver.

Radiohead for sure. They're easily one of my favourite bands ever. Beatles were so 2008 for me.

I wouldn't have thought to compare them, but I see your point.  Both can be listened to as straight-forward rock albums, but each has lots of layers and subtleties that reveal something new with each listen.  Both are 9/10 in my book.
