OK Computer Album is by Radiohead, the English rock band. Their third studio album was released on the 16th of June 1997 under the record labels Parlophone and Capitol Records.
The album received critical acclaim in the music press. Listeners, along with many in the music industry list the OK Computer album as one of the greatest albums of all time.
The release, considered a landmark for the genre, was a move away from the style of the band’s previous two albums, Pablo Honey and The Bends.
With melancholy and thought-provoking lyrics, layered sound and a wide range of influences, Radiohead set in motion a style that would lead to more experimental work later.
A commercial success, the album topped the UK Singles Chart, spending 2 weeks at the top. It also reached the top of the charts in Belgium ( Flanders ) and New Zealand. In the United States it peaked at number 21 on the Billboard 200. It has notched up worldwide sales of over 4.5 million copies
In 1998 at the 40th Annual Grammy Awards, the album received a nomination for Album of the Year with Radiohead winning the Best Alternative Music Album category.
Stand out tracks are ” Climbing Up the Walls “, ” Paranoid Android ” and ” No Surprises “, which peaked at number 4 on the UK Singles Chart.
If you have Radiohead’s two previous albums, Pablo Honey and The Bends, or like British alternative rock, then the OK Computer album is one for your CD collection.
