Brimming with genuine emotion and beautiful, complex imagery OK Computer is one of the most inventive and rewarding albums of the nineties. The album was a turning point for the band, marking a perfect halfway point between their earlier, alternative-rock records and the avant-garde/electronica albums that would follow. Even after 20 years it still manages to engage the listener in a way only few albums during that time period have come close to.
