OK Computer is the third album by the English rock band Radiohead, released in 1997. It reached #1 on the UK Albums Chart and marked Radiohead's highest entry into the American market at the time, where it debuted at #21. OK Computer expanded the band's worldwide popularity, becoming the last Radiohead album to have a delayed release outside of the United Kingdom. As of 2007, it has been certified triple platinum in the UK and double platinum in the US.[1][2] OK Computer included the singles "Paranoid Android", "Karma Police" and "No Surprises".

The album was recorded in rural Oxfordshire and Bath, England with Nigel Godrich, who would work with the band on all their future recordings. Although OK Computer was dominated by guitar, its expansive sound and wide range of influences set it apart from many of the Britpop and alternative rock bands popular at the time, laying the groundwork for Radiohead's later, more experimental work.[3] The lyrics, by Yorke, and the album's artwork by Yorke and frequent collaborator Stanley Donwood, emphasised themes such as consumerism, social disconnection, political stagnation and modern malaise, though the band denied they set out to make a concept album.[4] Oxfordshire (abbreviated Oxon, from the Latinised form Oxonia) is a county in the South East of England, bordering on Northamptonshire, Buckinghamshire, Berkshire, Wiltshire, Gloucestershire, and Warwickshire. ... , Bath is a small city in Somerset, England most famous for its historic baths fed by three hot springs. ...

Background

Radiohead's previous album, 1995's The Bends, had been a success, so EMI, the band's record label, allowed them to record their next album on their own. EMI allowed the band to work with then-unknown engineer Nigel Godrich, who had assisted the band's previous producer John Leckie on The Bends and had already produced several Radiohead B-sides, as well as the 1995 charity single "Lucky". The band had begun to dislike traditional recording studios for their "used" and impersonal state,[6] and bassist Colin Greenwood said that, "the only concept that we had for this album was that we wanted to record it away from the city and that we wanted to record it ourselves."[7] This article is about the album by Radiohead. ...

Radiohead did not think that their next album would be any more successful than The Bends; guitarist and multi instrumentalist Jonny Greenwood said, "We did what we wanted for our second album, and we ignored all advice...and put out a record and attracted a certain number of people, so it just feels like we should be doing that again."[6] The band also wanted to change their musical and lyrical style from that of The Bends; drummer Phil Selway said that "The Bends was an introspective album   ...

Recording

In early 1996, "Canned Applause", a converted apple shed near Didcot, Oxfordshire, had been set up for rehearsal and recording. It was the first time Radiohead had attempted to record outside of a conventional studio environment. Colin Greenwood said, "we bought $140,000 worth of studio gear to record the album with. We had this mobile studio type of thing going where we could take it all into studios to capture those environments. We recorded about 35% of the album in our rehearsal space. You had to piss around the corner because there were no toilets or no running water. It was in the middle of the countryside. You had to drive to town to find something to eat."[7] Four songs from Canned Applause found their way onto the album: "Subterranean Homesick Alien", "Electioneering", "No Surprises" and "The Tourist". , Didcot is a town in the Thames Valley, in the English county of Oxfordshire (although formerly in Berkshire). ...

In late July and August 1996, the band took a brief break from recording to tour, immediately playing several European festivals, where they debuted new songs, including "Airbag". Then, opening for Alanis Morissette in large North American venues, the band performed early versions of songs such as "Paranoid Android", "Let Down", "Climbing Up the Walls" and "Karma Police". During summer 1996, "Paranoid Android" reportedly evolved from a "14-minute" song featuring long organ solos, to a version closer to the one heard on the album.[9] Yorke said, "I think that [because] we were standing in front of 10,000 people in a shed (industry parlance for "indoor amphitheatre") who really weren't that interested in what we were [playing] forced us to do a lot of tidying up of the songs really, really fast... there was something about playing in... huge, sterile concrete structures that was really important to the songs.

In September, Radiohead resumed recording with Godrich. The band moved to St. Catherine's Court, a historic mansion near Bath, then owned by actress Jane Seymour, where OK Computer was completed without record label pressure. However, there was another sort of deadline. One of the first songs completed was "Exit Music (For a Film)", which had been commissioned by director Baz Luhrmann for his Romeo + Juliet adaptation arriving in cinemas later that year. Jonny Greenwood said, "the main difference in the atmosphere [from past albums] was in... the studio experience. We were all of the same age, mid- to late-twenties, and doing a record in the middle of nowhere. And there were no established professionals there. It wasn't a real recording studio, and we had our friend [Stanley Donwood] doing the artwork in the studio at the same time. We were all at the same stage of our life and all working together for something, it was quite a buzz".[11] St Catherines Court is a Tudor manor house in a secluded valley north of Bath, England. ... , Bath is a small city in Somerset, England most famous for its historic baths fed by three hot springs. ...

The band made much use of the various different rooms and atmospheres throughout the house, and the isolation from the outside world encouraged time to run at a different pace, making working hours more flexible and spontaneous. Guitarist Ed O'Brien, commenting on the process, said he felt that "the biggest pressure was actually completing it. We weren't given any deadlines and we had complete freedom to do what we wanted. We were delaying it because we were a bit frightened of actually finishing stuff". However, the band decided they wanted a new record out by summer, and work was therefore finished by January 1997, and by March 1997, it was mixed at Abbey Road.[12] This article does not cite any references or sources. ...

Singles and release

According to Selway, "When we first delivered the album to Capitol, their first reaction was, more or less, 'commercial suicide'. They weren't really into it. At that point, we got The Fear. How is this going to be received?"[8] Jonny Greenwood said, "they made a prediction of how many records they planned to sell of OK Computer, before they heard the record. And then they heard the record, and cut the prediction in a half or a quarter, I think."[6]

Although the band's record label "didn't hear anything on OK Computer that sounded even remotely like a single, let alone like 'Creep'",[11] Radiohead chose the six-and-a-half-minute "Paranoid Android" as their lead single anyway. The song charted at #3 in the UK, giving Radiohead their highest single chart position yet, but, because of its length and the lack of a radio edit, the song was not widely played on other radio stations around the world. Subsequent singles "Karma Police" and "No Surprises" did not chart quite as high, but both were within the UK top 10, and "Karma Police" became a hit on alternative and modern rock radio in the United States.

The band also gave credit to their record labels for enthusiastic marketing for the album's success. Parlophone undertook an unorthodox advertising campaign for the album, taking out full-page advertisements in high-profile British newspapers and tube stations. The ads featured the lyrics for "Fitter Happier" written in large black letters on a white background.[8] In America, Capitol Records president Gary Gersh, when asked about the campaign after the album's release, said "We won't let up until they are the biggest band in the world".[11] Parlophone is a record label, founded in Germany in 1896 by the Carl Lindström Company. ...

"When we were cocooned in the studio making OK Computer, we were immensely proud of it," said Ed O'Brien. "But the longer the recording process went on, the less sure we became — it's very difficult to be objective, anyway. When the tapes went off to record company people all over the world, the marketing people were not exactly optimistic about how it would sell, apart from the UK, which unanimously thought it was fantastic. So we were a little nervous, because we want people to hear our music. There's a lesson to be learned from the album's success. It underlines the fact that radio and record companies underestimate what the general public are capable of listening to. This is not above people's heads. We're people, and we're making it; other people can get it too."[11]


Musical style

Sound and influences

On OK Computer, Yorke said that Radiohead "had a sound in our heads that we had to get on to tape... an atmosphere that's perhaps a bit shocking when you first hear it, but only as shocking as the atmosphere on [the Beach Boys'] Pet Sounds... and composers like Penderecki, which is sort of atmospheric, atonal weird stuff. We weren't listening to any pop music at all, but not because we hated pop music — because what we were doing was pop music... Bitches Brew by Miles Davis was the starting point of how things should sound; it's got this incredibly dense and terrifying sound to it. That's [the sound] I was trying to get — that was the sound in my head. The only other place I'd heard it was on a [Ennio] Morricone record. I'd never heard it in pop music...It wasn't like we were being snobs or anything, it was just like, 'This is saying the same stuff we want to say'."[11] The Beach Boys, originally the Beech Boys, a small team of four brothers from the south of Poland, emigrated to America in the early 1950s in search of a fortune to be made in the Arizonian logging industry.

Radiohead was greatly influenced by composers like Morricone and Penderecki during this time,[13][14] along with DJ Shadow. The album's production style, which was similar to Phil Spector's wall of sound technique,[13] resulted in a completely different musical texture from the band's earlier albums, and a maturation from the style that Radiohead projected with their debut single, "Creep". OK Computer received heavy comparison by the press to Pink Floyd's 1973 album Dark Side of the Moon. Jonny Greenwood praised Pink Floyd's Meddle (1971) but criticised the band's later albums and the genre of "progressive rock", claiming that any musical similarity was unintentional.[6] DJ Shadow (born Josh Davis in 1972)[1] is an American DJ, turntablist, music producer and songwriter. ...

Lyrical style

In keeping with this change in musical direction, the band projected a greater amount of paranoia in their lyrics, such as that with "Fitter Happier", a song that Yorke said is a "checklist" of slogans for the 1990s.[15] It is "sung" by the default voice for MacinTalk Pro, spoken text software on Apple Computer's Power Macintosh.[15] Yorke wrote the lyrics originally planning to sing them himself, but said the effect was strangely more emotional when he tried having them "read" by the computer.[16] PlainTalk is the collective name for several speech synthesis (MacInTalk) and speech recognition technologies, developed by Apple Computer. ...

Yorke described a change in his lyrics since 1995's more personal The Bends: "On this album, the outside world became all there was...

    "No Surprises" was released shortly after Christmas 1997, and was the album's final single. The song's lethargic sound had been created by slowing down the backing track for Yorke to sing over.

Radiohead maintain that although the songs have themes in common—speed,[6] technology, the global economy, and modern life in the UK—any clear "story" is unintentional and they do not deem OK Computer to be a "concept album".[4] Yorke also denied that OK Computer was a strictly personal album, saying that each song on the album was a "polaroid" from the viewpoint of a different person, even inspiring him to vary his vocal style in each song.[17] However, the band maintained that the album was meant to be heard as a whole. O'Brien said, "We spent two weeks track-listing the album. The context of each song is really important...It's not a concept album but there is a continuity there."[4] Image File history File links No_Surprises. ... Economic globalization has had an impact on the worldwide integration of different cultures. ...


Concept

OK Computer is often thought to depict a dystopia, and its artwork contains references to George Orwell's novels, especially Nineteen Eighty-Four. The band have cited Orwell several times throughout their career.[18] However, Yorke said, "Loads of the music on OK Computer is extremely uplifting. It's only when you read the words that you'd think otherwise."[19] A notable aspect of the album is an apparently circular narrative. In the opening song "Airbag", someone survives a horrific car crash, while the final song "The Tourist" contains the line "they ask me where the hell I'm going / at a thousand feet per second" and ends with a chorus of "hey man, slow down". However, the band said this had not been intentional, but they had noticed it after finalising the track listing.[6] This article is about the philosophical concept and literary form. ...

This article is about the Orwell novel. ...


Yorke explained the title's meaning: "We did this promo trip recently to Japan, and on the last day, we were in a record shop and this one kid shouted at the top of his voice, 'OK COMPUTER!', really, really loud. Then he had 500 people chant it all at once...I got it on tape. It sounds amazing. It reminds me of when Coca-Cola did 'I'd Like to Teach the World to Sing', that amazing advert in '70...The idea of every race and every nation drinking this soft drink...it's actually a really resigned, terrified phrase..."[10] The band have said "OK Computer" was originally the title of a song recorded for the album, which did not make the cut, but was later renamed "Palo Alto" and released as a B-side and on the EP Airbag/How Am I Driving?. Id Like to Teach the World to Sing (In Perfect Harmony) is a pop song which originated as an advertising jingle, produced by Billy Davis and sung by The New Seekers, for Coca-Cola, and was featured in a 1971 as a TV commercial. ...

Artwork

The album's cover design is a collage of images and text by Stanley Donwood, who is credited with design on several Radiohead covers, along with Yorke. Some of the art is computer-made collages, created by Yorke; other art is hand-drawn work by Donwood. Some of the text is hidden, including several phrases in Esperanto.[20] Yorke explained the artwork's theme, saying, "Someone's being sold something they don't really want, and someone's being friendly because they're trying to sell something. That's what it means to me. It's quite sad, and quite funny as well. All the artwork and so on...we chose to pursue it after we [finished the album]...It was all the things that I hadn't said in the songs."[12] Stanley Donwood is the pen name of English writer and artist Dan Rickwood[1], who has gained fame for his work on the album and poster art for Radiohead on every release since their My Iron Lung EP (1994). ...

Criticism

Despite near-unanimous critical approval at the time of release and since, a few have criticized the album. Robert Christgau granted OK Computer a B- but said the album lacked "soul", calling it "arid" and comparing it unfavourably to Pink Floyd.[25] Andy Gill wrote for The Independent in an otherwise positive review, "For all its ambition, OK Computer is not, finally, as impressive as The Bends, which covered much the same sort of emotional knots, but with better tunes. It is easy to be impressed by, but ultimately hard to love, an album that so luxuriates in its despondency".[26] Robert Christgau (born April 18, 1942), is an American essayist, music journalist, and the self-declared Dean of American Rock Critics.[1] In print, his name is sometimes abbreviated as Xgau. ...

Legacy

As OK Computer was released during the waning days of Britpop and during sweeping political changes in the United Kingdom, it was seen by critics to encompass popular opinion in the UK with its themes, explaining its enthusiastic reaction in that country.[27] Yorke said his lyrics had been affected by reading a book about the two decades of Conservative government which were just coming to an end in 1997, as well as about factory farming and globalisation.[28] However, in interviews Yorke expressed little hope things would change under the "New Labour" government of Tony Blair.[12] With the approach of the year 2000, many people felt the tone of the album was millennial.[28] Britpop is a subgenre of alternative rock that originated in the United Kingdom. ...

Some critics have credited OK Computer with "killing" 1990s Britpop,[29] as within a few years of its release, the dominant style of UK guitar pop had become slower and more melancholy. Many of the newer acts also utilized similarly complex, atmospheric arrangements. The band Travis worked with Radiohead's own producer Nigel Godrich to create the languid pop texture of The Man Who, which became the biggest selling album of 1999 in the UK. Others have credited Radiohead with beginning a mainstream revival of progressive rock and ambitious concept albums,[30] though the band denied their affiliation with the genre. In fact, members described the prevalence of bands that "sound like us" as one reason to break with the style of OK Computer for their next album, Kid A.[31] Travis are a Scotish rock band from Glasgow, comprising Fran Healy (lead vocals, guitar, piano), Dougie Payne (bass, backing vocals, occasional lead vocals), Andy Dunlop (lead guitar, banjo, keyboards, backing vocals) and Neil Primrose (drums, percussion). ...
