This band overrated ... How many other albums do really anyone care about. And take the award from Todd Rundgren and the other crap like Janet Jackson or Stevie Nicks or Deaf Leppard or The Cure or what other crap act was there. Oh one or two works from the 60 year old The Zombies they deserved it more than Todd Rundgren... Give Me a Break.... ALL Suck.

One of my all-time favorite albums. Every song is unique and yet the flow feels amazing, especially between Exit Music, Let Down, and Karma Police as all of the songs fit together. Paranoid Android is a classic with Karma Police and No Surprises. The album has aged well.

Anyone have any info on what a legit U.K. 1st pressing is supposed to weigh? I read on some forum that 1st pressings do NOT weigh 180g. This person claimed 1st pressings are standard-weight 120g vinyl. Can someone please confirm or deny this?

My copy of this release is on very flat vinyl with some light surface noise; light pops in quiet bits that will likely resolve with cleaning. Soundstage is huge with great instrument separation. Bottom end is a little thin but mid-bass is punchy with a natural sounding kick drum. Highs are crisp without being bright. Great stereo effects draw you into the music. Great album and great pressing. Lot's of interesting detail. I recommend this release. (Rega Planar 3, Exact 2 cart, PSE Studio SL, Linn LK85, Linn interconnects, Linn Katans)

When the first blue vinyl batch sold out in the UK, I ordered a copy from the US and it sounds terrible. A very expensive mistake indeed.

I have acquired 2 copies of this "first" pressing (without the etched 8552291 in the matrix). The more recent copy was supposed to be a replacement for an older copy which was not in great condition. The outer sleeves both look the same and have a "MADE IN ENGLAND" sticker on the outside. The inner sleeves are different though. On one copy, the set of inner sleeves is thinner, non-glossy and feels almost sandy and rough. The other copy has thicker, semi-glossy inners. Both sets of inners have the D-cutout at the top and are otherwise identical. What are your inners like? Could it be that this was issued with different inners or maybe someone had swapped the inners on one of my copies?

If you are interested in the blue Indies version (OK Computer (OKNOTOK - 2017), then looks like it has sold out everywhere HOWEVER - Juno will be getting stock in and they do not sell on pre-order. I guarantee that by the time you receive a notification email it will be gone so keep a very very close eye on this one. Back in at BLEEP now!!!!

Still looking for a copy of this. Must be Nr mint, have the correct markings in the dead wax (exactly as described but note that thye X is a crossed out 1), not be 180gms per record (around 130 gms please) & have a d shaped thumbhold cut out to one side of each of the inner sleeves. Don't want a sealed mint copy as can't verify the matrices in the dead wax. please get in contact if you have one for sale, Cheers.
