OK Computer is a masterpiece, in my book...

10 tracks out of 12 are excellent!

Just listen to:
1. Airbag (4:44)
2. Paranoid Android (6:23)
3. Subterranean Homesick Alien (4:27)
4. Exit Music (For A Film) (4:24)
5. Let Down (4:59)
6. Karma Police (4:21)
9. Climbing Up The Walls (4:45)
10. No Surprises (3:48)
11. Lucky (4:19)
12. The Tourist (5:24)
(bolder ones are even better!)

This is near perfection. Yes, this is not prog-rock per se, but very interesting nonetheless. Nice melodies indeed!!

Do you guys know this album?? Because you cannot say that you don't like Radiohead without trying this album!

Anyway... :)

My personal favorite is actually 'The Bends'. Ok Computer is a good album, not the best of the 90's, not even the best of '97. Although, still a mini classic ;)
Kid A, Hail to the thief and In Rainbows are also worthy checkouts!

To be honest with you i only bought a 2nd hand copy of it recently because so many people/friends were more or less 'pushing' me to listen
to this 'masterpiece' and i must say... i still haven't found out why this is actually called a masterpiece... I had high expectations of it but sofar listening
to it was rather disapointing, nothing realy on this album which makes me go 'WOW'. I also got the Kid A album and a 2cd 'Greatest Hits' together
with this OK Computer album in one buy and i am already quite sure that there won't be any Radiohead albums added to those 3. When it comes to 'weirdness'
and soundproduction i even seem to prefer the Kid A album above OK Computer... but is/was it really groundbreaking... not really as an artist like **örk was already experimenting with this kind of electronics 10 years before Radiohead if i am not mistaken... Sofar Radiohead is a bit of an overhyped band... (in my book that is... ;))

i think the problem is that we dont talk about big revolution here, its more some kind of new style, sum of things that was not that much common back then for mainstream music. **örk is of course an extreme artist but was not that much mainstream or listenable. And of course there were amazing rock-electronic (krautrock/electro-acoustics etc) stuff all around since the 70s.
But to get an album with such great consitency, melodies, such great style fusions, vocals etc etc (i have t listen to it agian i think), and do it listenable, is the THING.

So many people dont see that i think. There are so many MAINSTREAM (there isnt such a thing anymore, there are just numerous substreams with different capital) artists out there who are able to produce so so great albums (even if its just a folk album) specially the consitency and the melody and the tiny fusions of styles and new methods of playing ..... but specially the skill to do melodys is so so well developed these days.
Radiohead back then was a quite strong and big step as they were the band who had an amazing production and an amazing stylistic approach on their songs. Yes it was also a bit hyped, but thats just pop and that was important. So Radiohead was one of those bands who made the pop pretty progressive and experimental again. Before we had Smashing Pumpkins and Nirvana ... then there came Sigur Ros and now you have numerous fields of very mainstream pop and subgenres.
Radiohead wasnt the creator, but they carried the flag ....

Just take the last MEW album.
Even if its pretty rated high by some minoritys, its still heavily underrated. The melodys on this album and also the synths and the drums are so so good!!!!
melody wise those albums have min as much or even more to deliver then the last two tfk albums .... HERETIC!!!

... so to play that, you definitely have to listen to Rush ;)

a bit prog nerd talk
one of the most important stuff is i think, besides his priority tones of rim and his ride and his toms and his use of his foots, is his way of lyrical playing.
the orchetstration as he says i think. he does not depend on the groove or the beat, its more a floating and accentuating play. which is quite important for symphonic prog i think as Genesis did it.
you have to get out of the groove and do little details, spontaneous shout outs, ideas and lovely hugs, like Gavin Harrison wouldnt say :D
the groove/beat is lurking in the shadow and is coming up from time to time or some kind of variation of the basic groove/beat.

Weather Report, Yes and TFK are imho the bands that fuse groove and lyrical playing at hi-def. Were tfk are the most groovy .... specially at the moment, as they do very groovy driving songs and not that much symphonic/lyrical.
Genesis did not that much groove, they mostly had lyrical play i think. They even stopped the groove with a hard or hard-soft break as you became aware of .... ;)
KC did experimental lyrical and experiemntal groove 2gether with experimental but great melodys (and they are still top notch with such things as RED or Power2Believe).
Rush was quite experimental with the groove and pretty lyrical with the bass and symphonic with the the synths ....
SB for example is quite groovy/beat sound but the lyrical play is not that often. The same goes for Gentle Giant. But they are both very symphonic with the melodys which makes a great contrast.
Zappa is kind of the big fusion of everything of that **** ;) .... from time to time ....


for the lyrical play i think it is very important that the bass and the drums and also the melodic parts, synth and guitar, have a very special interaction .... they must be able to work at once but also as single, immmediatley react on each other and tell a story where they interact A LOT .... just listen to the Genesis instrumental parts or the parts where you onyl hear one or two instruments .... not much groove, not to long, as this is like they would jump side by side down the fucking street ... not to full as this is like everybody has something to say but nothing important ...

thats also why i like AISLES that much, because they .... are very lyrical with a lot of breaks and different parts. Still they are not as close to the genius of Genesis like tfk is.
they are way to full and the tones of the singer and all others are too "exclusive".
Big BIg Train or was it Carptree have some great skills here, but missing some others again ...

...

why is it so hard to compose like CAN-UTILITY AND THE COASTLINERS. Give more power to the single tones (you know, every one is sacred) and the stylistic diversity and less to the groove and the ... i dont know

...

im not drunk ... well maybe a bit .... but that must be from yesterday .... :D
