They had toured with Alanis Morissette in support of their second LP, 1995's The Bends. Karma Police is the bands last great catchy pop tune, but its lesser known tracks like Let Down that still offer the surprises. OK Computer , however, is a suite of music that redefined the band's sound, a trick they would repeat 3 years later, and works as both a brilliant album, but also as a truly remarkable set of individual songs. The release of their second studio album, The Bends, in 1995 saw Radiohead cracking the top 5 in the UK chart, playing to sold out crowds in the UK and Japan, but still not making an impression on that ever-important US market.

Mr.Twister
Perhaps Radiohead's most complete album, definitely making it a great introduction to the band for those who don't know where to start. "Paranoid Android" can be placed beside "Good Vibrations" and "A Day in the Life" for those timeless songs that challenge genre and experiment with musicality.
Bulace
Yes man, I've always placed "Paranoid Android" second after "Bohemian Rapsody"!!!!!!!!
Munimand
What an amazing album, it is really good, everybody should listen to it!
lubov
Hi, in your opinion: What is the best sound quality and pressing of Radiohead "Ok Computer" 2 LP Vinyl Represses: 1997, 2008, 2013 or 2015, UK or USA edition???
Survivors
The first pressing was made by EMI Records using DMM plating. Later pressings were done at Record Industry using EMI's original plating. By all accounts all UK copies are the same mastering-wise save for the later-later ones done by MPO. You're pretty much good to go with anything that bears the original EMI plating and Record Industry makes amazing quality discs.
Yndanol
frito1 The US pressings are terrible. I gave up and made a deal for this 1st UK pressing. It's breathtaking. Now, people say the 2008 Parlophone is also good. https://www.analogplanet.com/content/vinyl-reports-old-new-good-bad?fbclid=IwAR1r74AQ0Il15_0_-J6rjujmEgt0lhA9skZ3kPyHp-SfVapUINqHP4_APlc I didn't want to F around anymore so I just got the definate good one. I also read that US pressing are very poor.... I think I'll buy 2008 UK/EU repress...
Fordg
Thanks for your info!I'd like to purchase the original UK pressing but It's very very expensive.I will to buy the 2008 repress...
Yellow Judge
Man, here is my experience! I'm one of the lucky that purchased the album the day it came out, thus I own the very first UK version. If you can stretch to that, go for it...... otherwise, at a lower cost, invest on the UK/EU 2008 repress, which is spot on, even the renowned vinylphile Michael Fremer got that, with outstanding results, I'd say the same about it, since I compared it to my original, greeeeeeat (y)

BeatHoWin
I don't know when I got involved in music I think after listening to this song I fall for mucic https://powerator.co/
Gribandis
One of my all-time favorite albums. Every song is unique and yet the flow feels amazing, especially between Exit Music, Let Down, and Karma Police as all of the songs fit together. Paranoid Android is a classic with Karma Police and No Surprises. The album has aged well.
just one girl
My copy have the etched 8552291 (97-repress) in the matrix plus the die cut inners (first press). Anyone else with this ”problem”?
breakingthesystem
My copy is the same, also have with two concentric indented circles on labels.Standard weight vinyl, around 125 grams.
Zeli
I think you may have a unique release that is not in the database.
Ironrunner
Anyone have any info on what a legit U.K. 1st pressing is supposed to weigh? I read on some forum that 1st pressings do NOT weigh 180g. This person claimed 1st pressings are standard-weight 120g vinyl. Can someone please confirm or deny this?
Aver
I bought this around fall of 1997.EMI machine stamp, with block lettering, NO DATA.Does not have the outer “ridge” in the center label, that is in the picture for the copy with the yellow sticker. I saw that one for sale, later, when I was making my record rounds months after I bought mine.I can also confirm that my first? pressing is on the “thicker” vinyl, but I have not weighed it.It came out right alongside the EMI Centenary re-issues in 1997, and the records share some of the same characteristics. Sounds excellent.
Very Old Chap
I have a first pressing and can confirm that both vinyls weigh 170g each. Hope this helps.
Duzshura
I have an original UK and it's definitely not 180g. Sounds fantastic though.
Gavidor
My copy of this release is on very flat vinyl with some light surface noise; light pops in quiet bits that will likely resolve with cleaning. Soundstage is huge with great instrument separation. Bottom end is a little thin but mid-bass is punchy with a natural sounding kick drum. Highs are crisp without being bright. Great stereo effects draw you into the music. Great album and great pressing. Lot's of interesting detail. I recommend this release. (Rega Planar 3, Exact 2 cart, PSE Studio SL, Linn LK85, Linn interconnects, Linn Katans)
Dilkree
Do you have a 2017 remaster? I find those to be great but I have nothing to compare with.
Gholbirdred
When the first blue vinyl batch sold out in the UK, I ordered a copy from the US and it sounds terrible. A very expensive mistake indeed.
Umor
I have acquired 2 copies of this "first" pressing (without the etched 8552291 in the matrix). The more recent copy was supposed to be a replacement for an older copy which was not in great condition. The outer sleeves both look the same and have a "MADE IN ENGLAND" sticker on the outside. The inner sleeves are different though. On one copy, the set of inner sleeves is thinner, non-glossy and feels almost sandy and rough. The other copy has thicker, semi-glossy inners. Both sets of inners have the D-cutout at the top and are otherwise identical. What are your inners like? Could it be that this was issued with different inners or maybe someone had swapped the inners on one of my copies?
Sorryyy
That is interesting... I have no idea where the textured inner comes from, I'm fairly confident all of the 90's ones were glossy.
INwhite
Thanks for replying. Both sets do have the D-cutouts at the top. The only difference is in the texture and finish of the sleeves. One set has a rough matte texture and the other set is semi-glossy. Any ideas which version is original? I have a feeling the semi-gloss one is original and the rough matte one is a different version...which version I'm not sure though!
Xanzay
The first pressing does have the D-cut-out inners, while the repress has normal squared-off inners. I suspect someone did a swap on you, (or swapped perhaps because the originals were damaged)
Laizel
If you are interested in the blue Indies version (OK Computer (OKNOTOK - 2017), then looks like it has sold out everywhere HOWEVER - Juno will be getting stock in and they do not sell on pre-order. I guarantee that by the time you receive a notification email it will be gone so keep a very very close eye on this one. Back in at BLEEP now!!!!
Broadcaster
In a record store in Finland (where I live) they seem to have some available for order:https://www.recordshopx.com/artist/radiohead/ok_computer_oknotok_1997_2017/#527930
Awene
Looks like BLEEP have got some copies of this (Blue) back in
Abywis
My order from recordstore.uk was cancelled. They oversold their allotment. Don't ever shop there. I live in the US and I called my local indie store and they told me they ordered as many copies as they could. The US supposedly got around 4000 of the blue opaque. I suggest everyone just show up at your local store either at midnight if they do that, or first thing in the morning. I don't know if this will get hyped up like RSD and cause people to camp out, but I do suggest you get there first thing. Call ahead though of course.
Rit
As of 5 min ago (6:48am) Thurs. May 5th, Boomkat still had the opaque blue vinyl up for pre-order. Good luck!https://boomkat.com/products/ok-computer-2017-reissue?taxon_id=107765edit: now SOLD OUT
lets go baby
I'm so lucky I preordered it already, it's gonna be so good
Beydar
Still looking for a copy of this. Must be Nr mint, have the correct markings in the dead wax (exactly as described but note that thye X is a crossed out 1), not be 180gms per record (around 130 gms please) & have a d shaped thumbhold cut out to one side of each of the inner sleeves. Don't want a sealed mint copy as can't verify the matrices in the dead wax. please get in contact if you have one for sale, Cheers.
Zinnthi
Still looking, if you have one please do get in touch.

Is turning 20 years in June this year. Party time?
Mmsa
Okay I'm not sure what version I have. I don't have the 8552291 on my pressing but another number that starts with a 14.As for the labels, they are clearly XL labels that have eeny, meeny, miny mo listed for the sides and there is no surface noise/click pops after cleaning. i had the record on low volume today (due to family over) and it seemed like the record might be quiet at parts. Maybe I'm overreacting. What were the problems with the original releases again?
Fog
This LP sounds fantastic. On a great audio system, this sounds amazing. I have not listened to any reissues to compare. HOwever, I can mention that it sounds so fantastic as the 45 rpm In Rainbows lp boxset. The clarity, the detail, the soundstage and the crispness of the LP I am just listening to are second to non.Highly recommended.
Daron
Yes man , it does sound fantastic , clarity , spaciousness and musicality all over , am glad I own it since day one (y)
Vonalij
The 1st press is without the 8552291 in the matrix! The first reissue has additional 8552291 in the matrix.
Gela
How can I determin if it's a 1st pressing or the first reissue from the same year? I do not see any differences on the release page in the matrix or oon the sleeve and labels.
from earth
I had read in the first mint magazin only 1000 copies were pressed from these first edition. And the was very fast sold out. That's the reason for the second pressing in the same year!
Sagda
why the fuck is this so expensive? this is one i never grasped the price..however I know this is the only press that sounds great..the 180 g 2008 capital "from the vault" reissue is shit..very muddy..ended up buying it twice clearly after being told its the "repress on 180 g" which uses the same plates as the original.
Axebourne
Wasn't there a reissue this month of all the albums from Pablo Honey to HTTT, released by XL? If anyone has these releases, could you please let me know how they sound (especially OK Computer) compared to the Parlophone reissues?Thanks
Undeyn
kylevaldes Tapes being better than a vinyl? You're out of your mind.

all radiohead reissues sound shitty, and very muddy. the originals and cassette tapes are the best quality. i have the ok computer tape and I love it
Jaberini
I just picked up the XL version and it had Parlophone discs so...

was looking around in my country (australia) and found a new press under a label called Rocket - Ok Computer (Vinyl 2lp)does anyone have this and whats the sound like since it was only going for (AUD) $52.99 + p/h $4.99
Mr_KiLLaURa
theres reason for me to believe mine is the 97' repress like for instance my matrix stamps have the "I A I" "I B I" ... but the vinyl feels heavy like 180gtheres no mention of that for the original pressing or repress - how do i find out for sure??

Hi Bob - You still looking for a copy of this? Cheers

I have yet to buy a copy of the 97 re-press (haven't found one yet), but the later UK 2013 180 gm press was available in two versions, one of which has the EMI wording on the back sleeve and nigh on identical matrix numbers to the 97 re press . This later 180 gm issue does have Parlaphone in the barcode text instead of EMI though. As far as I am aware the 97 re press should be a 120gm pressing, if yours is 180 gm then it is likely to be this 2013 UK pressing.

having looked at and enquired of a number of the 1997 1st and 1997 re-press issues for sale I think that other than the clear differences on the matrices, the covers are as follows:1st press - all have the EMI edition wording on the lower left outside of the gatefold sleeve.Re-press - I have seen some with the EMI writing and some without. I can only assume they had a quantity of gatefold sleeves remaining from the 1st press and used those up on the re-press before switching to the unmarked gatefold sleeves.this means if your gatefold has no marking on the bottom left it is a re-press.if it is marked with the EMI writing then it could be either the re-press or !st press, the matrices will be needed to confirm.I have ordered a few up of the different varieties and once I have confirmed this I will submit an edit to the two listings.

Hey mate how's this coming? Looking forward to reading your discoveries.

Other than the matrix number difference between this and the later 1997 repress are there any other differences? In particular are there any differences on the outer sleeve? I am only asking as several folk have sealed copies for sale and without access to the matrix numbers I would like to know how the two versions can be identified, if indeed they can be. ThanksBob

To clarify is, it safe to order from Amazon UK?

I have a 1st press (without the 8552291 in the matrix) and it's a perfect EMI pressing - clean, flat and sans surface noise

trying to find a copy of this (without the 8552291 in the matrix) but it's difficult as this is a minor difference between the pressings and most sellers on discogs of this pressing might not even notice it and just assume they have this pressing.
Drelalen
someone else may know, but I myself am not sure. since the repress happened the same year there couldn't have been an abundant amount of first pressings.
ME
I assume that the versions without the Matrix are the very first few? Do you know how many? then they began adding the matrix?
Sharpmane
Some seem to have issues with the first pressing, maybe a duff batch I don't know.My copy is faultless and knocks spots off every other version I've heard including the CD. No problems with surface noise.
Whitesmasher
Right there with you. Glad to have a pristine copy. The difference between this OG press and the Capitol reissues is disheartening.
Malaunitly
Anyone else notice a lot of surface noise on this release?
Gavikelv
Does anybody know how to tell the difference between a Parlaphone 1st pressing and a later pressing? Thanks!
Zepavitta
Any idea how heavy the vinyl is? I have one that seems to match but the vinyl weighed at 178g on my scale

achamings: It took some time to figure it out, but I compared the matrixes. There are some differences between all of them, but here's how to "easily" differentiate them:1st Press doesn't have 8552291 on any side, repress has it on all sides, and 2nd lacks it on side D.2nd press has IAI, IBI, ICI where as the repress has IA, IB, IC, IDA few other differences as well but this should be enough.Repress version http://www.discogs.com/Radiohead-OK-Computer/release/3339642Matrix / Runout (A Side): D 8552291 IA NODATA 02 A-1-1-Matrix / Runout (B Side): D 8552291 IB NODATA 02 B-1-1-Matrix / Runout (C Side): D 8552291 IC NODATA 02 C-1-1-Matrix / Runout (D Side): D 8552291 ID NODATA 02 D-1-1-"2nd press": http://www.discogs.com/Radiohead-OK-Computer/release/216593Matrix / Runout (Runout stamp/etching side A): NODATA 0X2A-1-1- 8552291 IAIMatrix / Runout (Runout stamp/etching side B): NODATA 0X2B-1-1- 8552291 IBIMatrix / Runout (Runout stamp/etching side C): NODATA 0X2C-1-1- 8552291 ICIMatrix / Runout (Runout stamp/etching side D): NODATA 02 D-1-1- First Press (this one)Matrix / Runout (Run-out area A-side [machine-stamped]): NODATA 0X2A-1-1-Matrix / Runout (Run-out area B-side [machine-stamped]): NODATA 0X2B-1-1-Matrix / Runout (Run-out area C-side [machine-stamped]): NODATA AX2C-1-1-Matrix / Runout (Run-out area D-side [machine-stamped]): NODATA 0X2D-1-1-
