2 stars "Computer says no..."

Considered by many to be a seminal release from arguably the most important band of the modern generation.

The Good: Paranoid Android.

The Bad: Everything else. Especially Fitter Happier, which is like a decomposing cow, unashamedly damming the already languid flow of the album. The rest of which is to music what hospitals are to interior design; bland, sterile and criminally unmemorable.

I have often heard OK Computer described as being both powerful and emotive, but in reality all it really gives is the impression of a man slightly annoyed at the damp weather outside. Sure it has some nice moments, but not enough of them to make the incessant whining worthwhile.

The Verdict: Stratospherically overrated.
