Favourite Song on Album:

Listen to This Album When You’re:

Going through a breakup and/or existential breakdown.

Thoughts on Album Cover:

I really like this album cover, it reminds me of Saskatchewan and the SSX video games.

Want to Own on Vinyl?:

One day for sure.

Final Thoughts:

I’m sure I’ve already proved myself irrelevant by not giving this album a perfect score and putting it as one of my favourites, especially when Pitchfork, Rolling Stone, and Metacritic all gave it a perfect score. When it comes to innovation and importance, I have no doubt that OK Computer is essential. When it comes to this being a great album, well 92% is still a damn good rating so everyone calm their shit. OK Computer is emotional, epic, and groundbreaking. The album flows from song to song with expert care. The experience is truly one of a kind and I think that any music lover would be incomplete without at least listening through this album once.

Favourite Song on Album:

Listen to This Album When You’re:

Not quite in the mood for Coldplay or Muse, but want a sadder styled album.

Thoughts on Album Cover:

It’s pretty rad, reminds me of some of Thee Oh Sees covers.

Want to Own on Vinyl?:

Yeah, anything by Radiohead on vinyl would be the tops.

Final Thoughts:

Radiohead is such a solid group, but you really don’t need me to tell you that, you really don’t. I don’t know what else to say, it’s a great album that holds true to the rest of the work that I’m familiar with.
