Ok Computer OKNOTOK 1997 2017 (Music CD)

Sep 5, 2017

This is the greatest album released in my lifetime. OK Computer changed the sound, quality, and art of music. Radiohead’s work spreads beyond alternative rock to inspire a new generation of musicians in multiple genres. As a critically acclaimed and culturally beloved piece of art, OK Computer’s rerelease is necessary to celebrate this intensely great album. OK Computer is so perfect the Library of Congress archived it as “culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant” to the musical canon in 2014.

This is one of many masterpieces created by Radiohead. Beautiful and perfection are words that come to mind when thinking about OK Computer. If you don’t think it can get any better, it does! The second disc, OKNOTOK, contains three unreleased songs and eight B-sides. These songs waited 20 years for remastering and release, it is well worth the wait. OKNOTOK hints at Radiohead’s future. I am thrilled the band released this special 20 year anniversary collection and I am obsessed all over again.
