Well what i`m saying is to me it sounded a bit directionless. I remember before it came out they were saying it was going to be a back to basics album. But it wasn`t.It sounds to me like they decided to go one way & then changed their minds.

Well i really loved it myself, but i understand why purists and many long term fans would find it to be disapointing.

If they went back to the style of the Bends then I would have been extremely let down. Pablo Honey and the Bends are not very good, OK Computer was in step in the right direction, kid A and Amnesiac are fantastic and HTTT combines those two albums along with OK Computer to make my favorite record of all time.

Anyway, OK Computer is in my top 10, its my favorite Radiohead album, and i probably listen to it more than any other CD i own...Except maybe DSOTM, which i usualy listen to every 40 minutes.
I've heard the album

Nobody asked you if you liked Radiohead.

'It's not that maybe the album wasn't good...'

Sounds like you've never listened more than twice. Of course, you'll say you've listened to it more than twice...

Biased S-O-B.

BTW, OK Computer was my favorite Radiohead album until Thom Yorke announced that playing two copies of Kid A exactly 17 seconds apart creates a fuller 'wall of sound'. Try it sometime, it is frickin' amazing.

Start Kid A in Winamp, and at 17 seconds start Kid A in another media player. You'd be amazed that they were able to do this.

I havent tried that on the whole album, only on Everything In Its Right Place, and yes it did sync up quite well. O_O

What is with track 7? Seriously? It's a stupid robotic voice wanking on about stuff. I always skip it.
