Album


OK Computer OKNOTOK 1997 2017 is a reissue of the 1997 album OK Computer by the English alternative rock band Radiohead. It was released in June 2017, the album's 20th anniversary, following the acquisition of Radiohead's back catalogue by XL Recordings from EMI in 2016. The album is remastered and includes B-sides released on OK Computer singles, plus three previously unreleased songs: I Promise, Man of War, and Lift. The reissue includes bonus tracks three previously unreleased and completely remastered versions of the album tracks. It was released on June 23, 2017 digitally, as a double CD set, and a triple LP pressed on 180 gram vinyl. The expanded box set includes a triple LP, as well as a C90 cassette mix tape compiled by the band and taken from the OK Computer session archives and demo tapes. A C90 cassette mix tape compiled by the band, taken from OK Computer session archives and demo tapes. A download code for both the LPs and the tape. 1997-2017 The copyright in this sound recording is owned by XL Recordings Limited. 1997-2017 XL Recordings Limited. Printed in E. Made in the E. Audio fixing and dubbing was done at Mayfair, Abbey Road, Air Lyndhurst, Courtyard and the Church studios. Twenty years on, Radiohead revisit their 1997 masterpiece with a deluxe reissue. The bonus material includes familiar B-sides and a few previously unheard recordings that hint at an intriguing road not taken. As they regrouped to figure out what their third album might be, Radiohead faced, if not a crossroads, then an unusually open stretch of road. They had toured with Alanis Morissette in support of their second LP, 1995's The Bends. Album 1997 23 Songs. The centerpiece of OKNOTOKs second set of unreleased tracks and B-sides, its a startlingly beautiful snapshot of the bands ridiculous post-The Bends, OK Computer-era potency. Elsewhere, Lift is another glistening gem from the vaults and Meeting in the Aisle provides a reminder of the bands haunting way around an instrumental. A remastered OK Computer, meanwhile, remains the foreboding masterpiece it ever was. After 20 years since its initial release. Radiohead re-releases their alt-rock masterpiece. Once again, I review. OK COMPUTER I also add my thoughts take on the OKNOTOK 1997 2017 reissue that pairs the original album with B-sides and three never-released songs. Will Hermes. Radiohead have reissued their acclaimed 'OK Computer' with three never-released tracks. Jim SteinfeldtGetty. Great records can conjure the illusion of being tailored specifically to whatever era the listener is in. Declaring Karma police, arrest this man alongside couplets like Ambition makes you look pretty uglyKicking, squealing Gucci little piggy, as transcendent melodies vie with outbursts of anxiety, depression and technological hate-fucking, OK Computer sounds pretty relevant right about now. Over the past 20 years, it always has. Summary: The remaster of the rock band's 1997 third album features eight B-sides, as well as original studio recordings of three previously unreleased tracks: I Promise, Lift, and Man Of War. Buy On. Record Label: XL. OK Computer OKNOTOK 1997. has been added to your Cart. Add gift options. If you are a Radiohead fan considering upgrading their best album this is worth it. The remastering on the album was done by Bob Ludwig one of the best mastering engineers in the world and the album sounds great. Verified Purchase. OK Computer was first released in 1997 to tremendous critical adulation. While not as immediately accessible as its outstanding predecessor, The Bends, OK Computer has proven to be not only Radiohead's finest release, but one of the best rock albums ever. OK Computer offered an eerily clairvoyant vision of digital angst and alienation. Twenty years on, this reissue reveals just how unusual it was. In 1996, during sessions for their third album, Radiohead recorded a track called Lift. Like much of their new material, it had first been performed during a disastrous American tour that same year, supporting Alanis Morissette. But unlike the other new songs Radiohead had played, Lift had gone down well. Listening to it on the 20th anniversary reissue of OK Computer, you can see why: it is blessed with an immense, air-punch-inducing chorus. The thing is, Lift is on the second disc, the one filled with B-sides and outtakes

Although there were what looked like a couple of fingerprints on one side all six sides played through fine.The remastering is excellent, this sounds better than Kid A does --though I suspect in 2020 the kid is due for the same 20 year anniversary treatment.
Just opened my US version, playing side 1 and 2. The problem with side 1 is the wobble of the needle with every revolution is so pronounced you can hear the pitch change ever-so slightly. Side two is a perfect pressing, but the quality control at the plant is pretty shite based on these other reviews.
Yet another Radiohead release with a terrible pressing. All three records are damaged and look like they have a rash. The labels are cracked and look terrible. Can't speak for the sound quality as I won't risk damaging my stylus on a visibility damaged record.Pissed.
Hi. I could use some help. I purchased what I thought was the EU version. On the back jacket it clearly says printed in the EU. However the labels all say 'Made in N.A.'. Has anyone encountered this? The audio has tons of clicks and pops.
Mine is the same. It is the US pressing. Mine don't have pops or clicks.
I have this same experience. I even paid for it being told it was the EU release and shown the back.
Great set. Not sure how "remastered" it REALLY is; just seems more stereoized to me. Only considerable degradation occurs during "How I Made My Millions," but considering the song's lo-fi, unmasterable nature, AND it being the closest to the center of the record as the final track, I can sincerely forgive it. Other than that, I haven't noticed any issues. Surface is quiet and the sound itself is clean.Bought my copy at a Barnes and Noble for $50 (bought it there for convenience)... Considering it goes for $35 on the official site and around $25 here, seems very overpriced. Of course, everyone's personal value for this album is different, and while I'm okay with spending that amount, remember to be careful about overpaying.
I have an original UK copy and this honestly sounds just as good and maybe even slightly better. Very surprised and impressed with this reissue!
Amazing record. Tons of cool art come in this package. You'd feel like it would be too long of a listen with all the tracks on it but I am taken and interested each time. Very mind blowing album and the b-sides make it even better. Definitely worth the purchase.
Seems like a lot of people were having problems with this pressing, but my copy (purchased March 2018) doesn't have any of the issues described. The quality is above-average for sure. For anyone debating picking one of these up from brick and mortar retailers, I think it's probably a safe bet at this point. I think the pressing company finally got their shit together. I'd be hesitant to pick up an older copy from 2017 though, unless it was a different (EU or blue vinyl) pressing..
Since everyone is having issues and complaints here you should maybe look into the EU black or blue versions. And yes, the Blue one is also great, low surface noise and barely any crackles.
haomingy Do the US and UK pressing using the same master? Are there any difference except for the pressing quality? The US pressing of mine plays very quiet overall. same.

My copy, fresh out of the jacket, sounds like somebody poured a box of Rice Crispies into the grooves. Back to the store it goes.
Just listened to this pressing in its entirety and I'm relieved to report it sounds great with no pops or other flaws. I even heard some subtle background layering that I hadn't noticed before, maybe due to changing levels on the remastering. Guess I got lucky with my copy. Or, mine seemed to ship a few days later than others got their copy, so perhaps the plant worked out some of the quality control issues that others discovered?
I just opened my US pressing, GARBAGE. Dirty, covered in shit, paper bits stuck to the record surface. Will not put it on my table, it's going back to the Radiohead store. And WTF is it with pressings coming without sleeves? Opened the new Broken Social Scene and the records were directly in the cardboard, all dusty as shit. Sleeves with rice paper should be a mandatory standard or even better, the pink anti static sleeves.
Not a noisy pressing until 3rd LP. Dished and a few marks that provide subtle ticks. Requested a replacement. Other than that this pressing sounds fantastic. I would recommend it to anyone who can't afford an original UK parlaphone 90's pressing.
Looking at the label pictures, I wonder which plant they were pressed at... they look like from United Record.(PS: apparently they're from Independent Record Pressing, according to some Reddit posts)
Sadly agree with Wes. I've gone through two US black vinyl pressings so far. Both noisy pieces of shit. Why can't US vinyl pressing plants get their shit together? No pressing plant identified on the record. Chickenshits. Returning both. Ordered a European Optimal pressing from Amazon UK. Wish me luck.
I think they are pressed at Rainbo, which is considered a lower quality presser in the U.S. It would probably only cost a couple dollars extra to press them at RTI or QRP but XL wants to squeeze every cost saving regardless of releasing an inferior product.
I purchased the US pressing of the black version and sadly made the mistake of buying it at Barnes & Noble simply because I was being lazy that day and didn't feel like driving the few extra miles to the shop I usually buy records at (BAD IDEA). Nothing against B&N other than the fact that they don't accept returns on vinyl that's been opened. Clearly, that's my fault for not asking about their return policy before I spent the money.(will NEVER do that nor buy vinyl from B&N again that's for sure) Now of course, this wouldn't at all be an issue if I was actually pleased with the pressing, but sadly, that's not the case. Anyway, the first thing I played was disc 3 with the unreleased material and b-sides which is pretty much the main reason I bought this pressing. My first impression was that it sounded good, certainly not stellar, but at least good enough and something I could definitely live with it and enjoy. Both sides played well with only some minute ticks and a few loud pops on a couple of songs, but nothing that was too distracting. I've read a few reviews where people had mentioned their copies having some surface noise and issues with the low end lacking. which is pretty much my assessment as well, but nothing I couldn't live with. Visually, all the discs were pretty clean for the most part, with the exception of several marks on the surface over the grooves that are only seen when held up to the light. They look like fingerprints and/or wipe marks, but I don't think they're causing any of the noise I'm hearing. There was also very slight warping on the two discs I played. But again, sonically, the records sound pretty good with nice crisp top end and clarity, but like I said, slightly thin on the low end. Next, I moved on to disc 1, it started out ok but about midway, the surface noise became increasingly intrusive. And of course it had to be on the most quiet passages(ugh). So basically, side one ended horribly in that regard, and unfortunately, side 2 just got worse and the noise persisted all the way until the end of that side. I haven't even played disc 2, at this point, I'm so frustrated and honestly, it doesn't even matter, the whole listening experience is ruined anyway. It's a damn shame they dropped the ball on this one, you'd think they would've gone all out on a recording like this and make sure it was absolutely flawless.Anyway, now I'm stuck with it but am contemplating taking it to my usual shop,(which I should've went to in the first place) and I'll see if I can sell it to them and get some of my money back or even better, store credit and buy something that won't completely disappoint me. I also thought about keeping it just for the bonus disc seeing as that one actually plays fairly well, but at this point, I just want it the f***k out of my collection ASAP.. lol. I already downloaded the WAV & MP3 files so at least I have all that bonus material. Anyway, after reading a few more of these reviews, it sounds like I'm definitely not alone in my displeasure. Oh well, it is what it is right?
I got the blue one and while I havnt heard the original I think its pretty great. Even the low end. I got the EU version and that barely has any pressing issues however so yeah.
Exchange it a few times with barnes and noble and they will eventually refund. I've done it a few times for situations like this. I'm in the same boat with this pressing btw and I'm exchanging until they refund.
Have the EU pressing in blue-- sounds awesome. Obviously this LP is a masterpiece so no comment on the music. I just received my US pressed copy. Let me sum up my reactions in just three words: PIECE OF SHIT. That's right, a piece of shit. I'll return it up to three times to see if my experience is unusual-- but I'll bet anyone here that all of the US copies I am about to receive will each be another PIECE OF SHIT. I do not fault the labels for the con-job test pressings they signed off on before these dicks, er discs, (Freudian something or another here) were manufactured. The presser knows full well they're producing crap that is a far cry from the test pressing quality-- where they are MOST CAREFUL. They know and do not give a shit.Why a POS? Non fill on all discs, constant loud surface noise, pressed off center, sharp plastic shrapnel on disc edges. An all around BAD listening experience with any quality system and/or with any decent headphones.Sorry Rainbo, or whoever it was that pressed this POS, but you deserve every word of this for beshitting a masterpiece with your utterly, absurdly, consistently, quality-free manufacturing processes where a decent copy is the exception to your rule of shit and not the norm. Not surprised you want your name kept hidden. Heck of a job Barney, heck of a job!!!
I personally blame XL. This was the same issue with Moon Shaped Pool. They had Rainbo press it and that turned out like shit. Once again, after hearing all the complaints they did the same thing. They don't understand real music fans will spend an extra few bucks to have a nicely pressed record.
Likewise... Amazon purchase, noisy but bot terrible. Paper scuffs etc. Usual BS.When will these reissue peeps ever just cough up the extra few pennies and include poly lined inner sleeves?So lame. Amazon UK may be the way...
Another vote for a noisy pressing. Local shop I bought from doesn't do refunds so I'll likely just hold onto this or maybe sell it. It's listenable for the time being though as I've never heard this on vinyl.
When I found out that there was going to be two separate black pressings, I knew it wasn't going to be pretty for the non-Optimal pressing. Lo and behold, this black US pressing is noisy on all sides with paper scuffs and a couple divots to boot. Maybe I got a dud, but this one is going back. Looks like I'll be ordering a copy from Amazon UK.
That is why I often hold off on purchasing any vinyl that only has a US pressing until I see on here where it was pressed and how the quality is. Seeing Rainbo and United sends a shiver down my spine. There are certain labels I can trust the quality will be good. Anti is one that springs to mind. They use QRP for US pressings most of the time.
Yep, or live with a crap "made in the USA" pressing. Many don't care. They should. They're getting royally chumped! Sends a message to the pressers-- "crap sells!"
