I know it's only one criteria , but it's the one you bought up.
I mentioned two albums from that year that I preferred over OK Computer , you were the one that mentioned influence so I mentioned another album that could claim to be just as or if not even more so than Radiohead. I know they're not that Mogwai are not the only Post Rock band but most of the ones I have heard sound a lot closer to them than Tortoise.
But that isn't really the point. The point is I named two albums from that year I liked more than OK Computer and all the influence that album has in the world makes no difference when it's me sitting here listening to them.

Being influential doesn't mean crap anymore anyway. Once it might've meant some sort of stylistic breakthrough, but nowadays all artists do is rehash old styles anyway. Being influential nowadays just means the mainstream decided to turn your influences into a new trend.

Maybe you should check them out; they're not obscure at all. Evergreen has one of the great Echo & The Bunnymen singles on it (Nothing Lasts Forever) and Time Out Of Mind seems to be a Bob Dylan album that even non Dylan fans appreciate. They're both far more "visible" (TOOM won three Grammys, not that that means anything) than most of the albums posted here.

Now I know people may like albums personally better than OK Computer but to say any other album was better through an objective viewpoint is wrong.
Who gives a fuck about lists? If we went by lists, Sgt. Pepper would still be the greatest album ever (and Pet Sounds the second best).

And there is no such thing as objectively rating an album outside of sales, which are meaningless anyway. If we're going by how many people like an album, you should really be listening to the Eagles, Michael Jackson, Elvis Presley, Garth Brooks, etc. if you want to hear "objectively great" music.

i personally like Kid A better, but still even if you don't have it in your top slot, give it the respect, people are talking like its complete garbage... no one is ever going to unanimously agree that it or any other album is the best, but the fact that it makes virtually everyone's top 10 or 5 speaks to it's impact and greatness

How is saying I like 2 albums from 1997 more than OK Computer talking garbage.

C'mon have a bit of perspective.

They'll often wear a Che Guevara t-shirt, just to 'mix it up'.
