    Can anyone give me a sincere answer as to what exactly makes this album so critically acclaimed? I listened to it twice and it sounds a mid alternative rock album with some quirky riffs and guitar pedal effects thrown in here and there.

      depressed relatable lyrics are what made it culturally significant. if it didnt have that it would be forgotten and just remembered by a small group of people that enjoy the instruments.

      the praise for Ok Computer is mostly due to Electioneering

      It's the context of when it came out. Up until that point, for a good few years, popular British rock was mostly bright, uptempo, playful, fun and associated with partying and good times and then suddenly one of the biggest names puts out this dark dystopian record which both kills the vibe and turns everyone's head at the same time. Basically Britain in the mid '90s was one big party, with Britpop, Blair, Euro '96 and Cool Britannia, and this album crashed the party in style.

      Same reason why Nevermind and the Sex Pistols' album gained so much critical acclaim. Because they just offered something a little different to their contemporaries.

      Also it's just a genuinely great record which bridges the gap between Radiohead's earlier guitar driven stuff and the ambient experimental sounds that would go on to define them as a group.

        Trip-Hop was popular at the time, and it's way darker and more experimental than this shit.

          Trip-Hop is far more associated with electronic music, not rock. It appealed to a smaller audience that was already primed for darker music whereas Radiohead appealed to a more normie audience that weren't primed for darker music.

            Radiohead was not any more popular than a group like Massive Attack at the time. Electronic music was mainstream as fuck in the 90s, including "darker" stuff. There's a lot of revisionism going on with Radiohead.

    it stills sounds like its an album from the future, how can the rest of music even compete?

    if they removed all the wacky sound FX and overuse of drum and guitar effects it would actually be a great album. needs an acoustic version.

    Worst Radiohead album. It’s not their best, not the best album of ‘97 or all of the ‘90s, and certainly not the best album of all time
