I listened to all Radiohead albums chronologicly.
I like them, but i don't really understand the amount of praise.
I thought listening to them was pretty relaxing. I remember falling asleep after finnishing the last song on the bends, but in a good way xP.

I kind of agree -- when I go back and listen to it, it doesn't seem to be as great.

Things to consider though -- so many people have been influenced by Radiohead -- its easy to see how they could start to appear bland in comparison -- their music has been subtly dispersed into everything (its all over TV anymore). And at the time, grunge rock was in major decline -- Radiohead was pretty refreshing.

But some of the tracks definitely seem a little generic in 2014 though. "Lucky" is still incredible IMO.

Although the album may now be a victim of its own success (like Nirvana's Nevermind), one can only true understand its impact on the world while reviewing it within the time. Also, compared to Pablo Honey or The Bends, Ok Computer isn't as accessible (with B-sides from the era, Airbag / How Am I Driving? and No Surprises/Running from Demons, more on the experimental side) and thus not the pop album that you so claim. However good review.

I feel OK computer is slightly overrated. However, it deserves to be.

Great album.

Here are a few albums which came out the same year which I'd listen to with equal enthusiasm:

around the fur
homogenic
hard normal daddy

Do you have a list of albums that you do consider great art? I'd be interested to listen.
