As an At The Drive-In diehard, I was at this show a month before this album dropped. The band was opening for The Chili Peppers for an arena tour and to end the East Coast leg, Mars Volta did a one off at North Six in Brooklyn (650 person venue). Flea played bass with MV, and John Frusciante was in the crowd. 4 days after this show MV member Jeremy Ward (sound technician and vocal operator) died of a heroin overdose. This was his last show. ... read more

Nigel Godrich produced, one year on from OK Computer. Stands next to Odelay on its own right. Not as off the wall, more just knocking it out of the park indie country/folk songs. Great vocal melodies on here, esp love We Live Again and Dead Melodies. Tropicalia is a without a doubt a great tune, but it feels like the label was like "uh, we need a song for the masses".

Never been a huge fan of traditional punk rock music but some of these songs are fun, furious and sound fresh. Hope the rest catches up with me.

Security, Hertz & Knifey for sure.

Used to like him 10 years ago, now I'm officially done trying with Drake. When even the "good" songs have moments that annoy me, I just don't see the purpose anymore.

Drake with that 19 YO mentality when the dude is in his mid 30's... and people say Kanye is unlikable. Best song Drake dropped was that andre 3k Kanye song.

Hi again, sorry to bother you.

As I was creating the list, due to issues that arose and just new ideas I got, I thought it'd be sick if each of the top 10 albums had a bit of a foreword in their descriptions. Anyways, getting to the point, I'd appreciate it so much if you could just reply with a couple of sentences on OK Computer regarding its importance in musical history, influence and, most importantly, why you love it/what it means to you.

Thanks so much for reading and replying, if you do. It'd mean a lot.

Yes I know and it made me laugh! Actually, what annoys me is that this album is number 1 everywhere, and it's the same for Wish You Were by Pink Floyd
Ok computer is a wonderful album, but I don't think it deserves to be in a Top 10 (All time) ,there are too many better things before that

ahah I'm sorry, the worst part is that it's an album I know by heart 😢

About

Always shuffling the deck. Mainly just focusing on the music I enjoy.

90+ are my all time favorites.
83-89 are various degrees of love
73-82 are various degrees of like.
72 and below are okay, disappointing, or just not my taste.

Everything I rate or put on a list is in my itunes.
I don't stream.

The rest of my collection. Vinyl that I have not yet scored. I will not include "best of" albums or soundtracks, but I have a handful of those as well.

3rd annual NR list. These are albums I gave a fair listen to, but was unable to get enough of a grasp to justify a score. Sometimes its my fault, sometimes its the albums fault.
