Editor reviews

Kevin Pariseau’s energetic performance enlivens Dai Griffiths’ track-by-track deep-dive into Radiohead’s opus, OK Computer, a dense and hypnotic meditation on technology, isolation, and modern ennui that sounds as fresh and relevant today as it did upon its release nearly 20 years ago.
Whether breaking down chord progressions or illustrating the influence of Schubert and The Beatles on concept albums, Griffiths leaves no stone unturned in his accomplished analysis of this highly influential record, and Parsieau’s pleasant, spirited delivery engages the listener throughout.

Summary

Seemingly granted "classic album" status within days of its release in 1997, OK Computer transformed Radiohead from a highly promising rock act into The Most Important Band in the World - a label the band has been burdened by (and has fooled around with) ever since. Through close musical analysis of each song, Dai Griffiths explores the themes and ideas that have made this album resonate so deeply with its audience, and argues that OK Computer is one of the most successfully realized CD albums so far created.

Disappointing

Not at all worth listening to. Extremely dry, mostly unrelated to the album (the opening third of the book is a tedious and altogether irrelevant history of various music formats), and when the author actually gets around to talking about the album, it's a long slog through chord analysis and word lists. Not recommended at all.
