Radiohead's OK Computer: 33 1/3

Autor Dai Griffiths
en Limba Engleză Paperback – oct 2004
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.

Griffiths portrays a thorough, academic small feat for a book of only approximately 120 pages....[Griffiths] also brings his vast familiarity with records of all genres past and present, which lends undeniable credibility to his insight.
Some will find it amusing that Griffiths, professor of music at Oxford Brookes University, compares the album's lead-off track to 'the cello part in a Brahms or Faure sonata.' But given that a) the guys in Radiohead probably listen to Brahms and b) the guys and gals in Radiohead's audience probably don't, he's actually performing a service....B+
Griffiths gives an interesting take on a band whose legacy hasn't yet been chronicled into the canon.
