Ok Computer ~ Radiohead
Ok Computer ~ Radiohead
I think this album is pretty good, but I don't think it is a masterpiece, or even close to being on the same level as "Dark Side of the Moon." I like about half of the songs on the album, and the other half are just ok. Many of the songs are not particularly inspiring.

This album is amazing experimental music. I like to think of the theme of this album as a satire of 1980's excess. Think of a yuppie "government man" going through a nervous breakdown as the theme. First of all, the order of the songs seem be a metaphor for cocaine. The first half of the album is the manic state, and the last half is the comedown. "This is not my beautiful house, this is not my beautiful wife . . .." seems to caricature the nervous breakdown of a yuppie mind. Eighties excesses (coke, money, selfishness, greed) seem to be destroying this guy's sanity. The music is both experimental, and commercial. Its commercial sense seems to be another ironic -another… Read more
