The most fun to be had with OKNOTOK is in these line-blurring moments, hearing how the lost material informs the original album.


All three are strong songs -- sometimes stronger than the released B-sides -- and they're reason enough for serious Radiohead heads to pick up this anniversary edition.

Consequence of Sound

It’s a 23-track, two-disc masterpiece — a word reserved for works that raised the bar and an act that OK Computer has now done twice in a row.

The Guardian

In an era when their peers were striving for uncomplicated mass appeal, OK Computer was dense and clotted and experimental.

Drowned in Sound

It’s an eminently worthwhile reissue for serious Radiohead fans – and I’m not sure there is another sort.

The Line of Best Fit

The actual content of OKNOTOK, in terms of what’s new, is hardly justification for any casual listener to pick it up, but the excuse to revisit the record itself would absolutely vindicate the purchase.

Rolling Stone

The news of this reissue ... is a trio of unreleased songs long-awaited by Radiohead heads ... they complete the picture of one of rock's greatest bands cresting their first creative peak.


‘Unreleased tracks’ often mean flotsam and jetsam repackaged for a quick buck and an impending anniversary but, in this case, “I Promise”, “Man Of War” and “Lift” are the most exciting, crucial elements of this deluxe edition.


OKNOTOK will be of little interest to a passerby in a record store; its main value even for the die-hardiest of Radiohead fans is that little peek behind the curtain, a crack of light closer to understanding the way one of the most elusive bands in the world works.

I got the reissue over ok computer purely for I Promise
I didn't really expect much less from an OKC remaster, but OKNOTOK, with its 3 previously unreleased tracks + a full set of b-sides is magnificent. The remastered songs are so good that maybe even Pitchfork will start to appreciate Electioneering. Realistically, this remaster only gives more proof that this is one of the best bands of all time.
I Promise, Lift and Man Of War are all perfect like this album
Lift is genuinely the shit. It beats out about half of OK Computer, and I literally gave that a perfect score.

Disc 1: 50/50
Disc 2: 45/50

Favourite Tracks: Lift, Palo Alto, Man Of War
