As a purist of electronic music and more specifically techno, it's not often I emerge from my bubble to discover other music. It's even rarer for me to remember an era of my life in connection with a rock album. Rediscovering this CD several years since last listening to it, it's hard not to get all dewy-eyed remembering 1997. Achieving the seemingly impossible, this emphatic follow-up to 'The Bends' not only lived up to its predecessor but completely blew it away. In many ways 'OK Computer' is a very mature album; still bearing Thom Yorkes' deathbed vocals, yet musically more mellow than 'The Bends'. Where I found 'The Bends' to simply be a collection of twelve fantastic tracks, 'OK Computer' worked better as an album. Everyone has different views on what defines an album as a masterpiece; in my opinion it needs to transcend mainstream popularity and appeal to everyone. With it's organic feel and a deeply personal touch 'OK Computer' carries this off with ease. Given time alone with your thoughts and a pair of headphones, it's impossible not to lose yourself in these tracks.

Together with 1998s mini-album 'How Am I Driving?', this era paved the way for Radioheads journey into the more experimental material of 'Kid A'. Utterly essential, irrespective of musical taste...everybody should own this album.
