I'd been hearing the "blah blah blah" from so many sources for years about how great the band's third album was, and though I could see that it was certainly more guitar-oriented than their turn-of-the-century efforts, it didn't rock full throttle from beginning to end, like I was sort of expecting.
Much of it was slow and moody, and though a few lyrics caught my interest and led me to believe this was an album about how technology was bad and it was going to kill us all in the end, I had a tough time getting into most of the songs.
The poor computer seems to be reciting a mantra, a list of instructions meant to keep itself living a normal, productive, healthy life.

 Radiohead - OK Computer (Album Review)
In the span of OK Computer's 55 minutes, Radiohead amazingly traverses and links musical styles from the '60s to the '90s.
There are elements of The Beatles, The Byrds, U2, R.E.M., and the Smashing Pumpkins scattered throughout the disc, but these are combined with heavily sampled rave music and a huge dose of Pink Floyd to form a thick stew of sonic delights.
Indeed, there's a never-ending stream of discoveries to be found within OK Computer's swirling, spiraling, nearly out-of-control, yet calm and dream-like music.

 How many hits? | Pop | Guardian Unlimited Music
On computer servers in Barcelona, where McCready lives with his family, Platinum Blue stores vast amounts of data gleaned from every song that has ever made it into the Top 40 in Britain or the Billboard Hot 100 in America since the 1960s, along with millions that did less well.
Each hit is represented by a point of light, so travelling through the music universe on a computer screen feels like playing a video game set in outer space, with every star a song.
But the argument is also a moral one: not that the software doesn't work but that, whether or not it does, acting as if it does will leach the genius out of music by forcing artists to conform to existing styles.
