Short intro

Once again, I review. The remastering on the album was done by Bob Ludwig one of the best mastering engineers in the world and the album sounds great. Made in the E. Radiohead re-releases their alt-rock masterpiece. Printed in E. Twenty years on, Radiohead revisit their 1997 masterpiece with a deluxe reissue. Record Label: XL. 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. 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. It was released on June 23, 2017 digitally, as a double CD set, and a triple LP pressed on 180 gram vinyl. 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. 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. Radiohead have reissued their acclaimed 'OK Computer' with three never-released tracks. Will Hermes. 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. 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. If you are a Radiohead fan considering upgrading their best album this is worth it. Buy On. After 20 years since its initial release. Listen online and stay in a good mood. Radiohead have reissued their acclaimed 'OK Computer' with three never-released tracks. A download code for both the LPs and the tape. 1997-2017 XL Recordings Limited. 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. The reissue includes bonus tracks three previously unreleased and completely remastered versions of the album tracks. 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. 1997-2017 The copyright in this sound recording is owned by XL Recordings Limited. The bonus material includes familiar B-sides and a few previously unheard recordings that hint at an intriguing road not taken. Over the past 20 years, it always has. 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. Add gift options. Great records can conjure the illusion of being tailored specifically to whatever era the listener is in.

Most important - you can download the album OK Computer OKNOTOK 1997 2017 to your computer or phone absolutely free of charge, and without registration. A remastered OK Computer, meanwhile, remains the foreboding masterpiece it ever was. OK Computer was first released in 1997 to tremendous critical adulation. Our take on the OKNOTOK 1997 2017 reissue that pairs the original album with B-sides and three never-released songs. 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. Album: OK Computer OKNOTOK 1997 2017 2017. OK Computer OKNOTOK 1997. 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. They had toured with Alanis Morissette in support of their second LP, 1995's The Bends. Verified Purchase. Album 1997 23 Songs. 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

i tried getting this box set a couple of years back from amazon, it didn't come with vinyl for some reason, but recently i got the actual box set with vinyl and holy crap!!! this is an amazing box set (in my opinion), with the cassette and the books, it is a must-have for die-hard fans (like me)

Unfortunately, the copy that I purchased was misprinted very badly to the point that the sound was totally warped and all of the LPs had scuffs and scratches from the factory, so I returned it and didn't bother with another copy assuming that there are some bad batches in circulation. Even though the extra unreleased tracks would have been cool to have, I was only really interested in the regular album anyway, so I found a good copy of XL's regular release of OK Computer and I am very happy with it.

Can anyone tell me what resolution the download of the main tracks (Airbag to How I Made My Millions) in the box set? 24 Bit/ 96kHz WAV, 16 Bit/ 44.1 kHz WAV, MP3?

There are two wav download options (24 bit 96kHz and 16 bit 44.1kHz wav) -- although the digital copy of the cassette is 16 bit 44.1kHz regardless.

I've never heard a better mix of this album and I've heard or own all the significant pressings. For real. If you're a fan this is a must have.

Same for me.The stereo image is impressive.Using the latest tech in tape mastering.

At the side-F, "How I Made My Millions", there's a strong scratch noise as well as blue vinyl. The pressing of the vinyls got worse since "A moon shaped pool". I'm so sad.

That distortion is actually on the original recording, it's not the problem of the pressing.

I reluctantly opened mine this morning (yes, I'm one of those guys who likes to keep things sealed).Has anyone else noticed that their small book is bound the wrong way round ? What I mean is, whenI opened the box, the embossed stamps on both books were facing out toward me, but the printinside (in the small book) is upside down.The larger book has the embossed stamp on the front as expected which is why I'm curious if thesmall one has been bound incorrectly. Not that it detracts from the beauty of the whole package.So glad I opened it, the vinyl sounds amazing. Can't believe it's been 20 years since I picked upthat very first release !

i returned from vacation today with the box waiting on me ... i excitedly unboxed it, ready to listen to a bit before turning in after 12 hours on the road. however, could not do so ... it was shipped without the vinyl, everything else is there, just no vinyl in the sleeves inside the book.i am so disappointed.
Camper

The opposite happened to me. I got the 3 records but no box set. I contacted the W.A.S.T.E. Help Desk and got a replacement set shipped to me within 3 days. Zero hassle at all. Hope things turn out ok!

i ordered from the Radiohead site the day preorders started.it shipped from Asendia in Pennsylvania. I have contacted the shipper and the artist's fulfillment contractor in England.i am hopeful they will make this right. it's just terribly disappointing, especially reading the reviews of how nice the deluxe vinyl sounds.$143 US and don't even receive the records. that's frustration.

Question about the download code for the tape, what options were given? Is there a 24 bit download for the cassette or just standard 16 bit?

There is only 16-Bit for the tape portion. I promise 24-Bit isn't necessary for the tape.

As it's common to every new LP, you have to clean it before playing the first time. Residue is quite common due to the fact it's pressed ! Works for every vinyl. There was a lot of pressing residue on all three LPs. No problem after proper cleaning. Plays loud and clean. Super stereo resolution. Superb master IMHO. Congratulations. A must have for every fan !!!

Where to start with a "review" of one of my favorite albums, and an album that inspired me greatly as a song writer. Well, I guess the place to start would be the sonics of the remaster. The remastering is nice. I can fairly say that the drums are slightly more punchy and distinct, and Collin's Bass is more defined and specific in the mix. The pressing: my pressing is perfect. There is no noise, ticks or pops. The unreleased songs... they are cool. Not the best tracks, and I can understand why they where held back from release. The two art books: Honestly, nothing special. I can dig it that Thom is sharing is personal notes, but 20 years later, it provides way less impact then it would have at the time of the albums release. The Tape: This is pretty keen. I enjoyed this glimpse into the studio sessions, but it would have been better with more outtakes of some of the songs we already know and love from the LP. Over all, I would have been ok with just the three vinyls and the material on the tape pressed on a vinyl rather than a tape. Or, a 45RPM pressing of OK C and then just called it a day.

Mine arrived in perfect shape and sounds noticeably better than my blue vinyl... Didn't hear a single instance of surface noise on this EU pressing. The contents of the box are fantastic and worth the price alone in my opinion. This remaster still isn't my favorite pressing of OK Computer but as far as OKNOTOK is concerned, this is the copy to get.
Steelcaster

Is anyone else's cassette filled with horrible static on the entire A-side?? B-side is totally fine but any loud section on the A-side is riddled with noise. It's only coming from one side on a closer listen.

Glad I'm not the only one! Ive been searching high and low to figure out if it was on purpose or not..i contacted waste and they said it was a packaging error on their part that caused them to do this. They were apologetic about it and are sending a replacement no questions asked. I applaud their customer service on this one. I've had a lot of things happen through the years of collecting and very few times have companies so easily sent a replacement.
Butius

It should be noted the download files are all brick walled (flat at 0db), what some consider a fall back to the loudness war. Why the band didn't bother to offer full spectrum files is bothersome. But still, the music is incredible.

No damage or missing items on mine, sounds great, a real improvement from the "capitol vaults" one, there was a clic noise for a few seconds on "subterranean homesick alien" but nothing else, no distortion on Let Down whatsoever, XL really know their craft. Worth the £100.

Same quality as the AMSP deluxe edition. The packaging is very nice quality while the vinyl is still not audiophile quality.The records are still stuffed into cheap white paper inner sleeves. Have we learned nothing? Why can't I get a few poly lined inner sleeves in my super-duper deluxe edition? The sound of my copy is average, I experienced some random patches of surface noise through out play. I also noticed that my records have some areas that have that bumpy orange peel look which doesn't seem to mess with the audio. Ha, woe is me and my first world problems!
Shakanos

this is indeed an immensely lush release!highly amused to see some of the asking prices on the marketplace here at time of writing, considering it's still available to buy direct from Radiohead at £100, lol!(£200?!? roflmto!!)

Was the tape holding shut the cardboard around the LPs already broken for anyone else when they opened the package? I was hoping to keep everything sealed, but I kind of had no choice with the LPs (I put them in MOFI sleeves and kept the cardboard padding). I usually buy the regular releases to listen to, and the box sets or special eds to keep sealed, I was a little disappointed the LPs weren't packaged better. I know they have the sleeves inside the box, but since I'm leaving it sealed my options are limited.
Flamekiller

Mine had the tape broken too and I had a double of sky/blue Lp and no who's/it. Makes me wonder if the warehouse handlers are having a laugh. Contacted Waste to get the replacement Lp. Great set aside these issues.

My copy has a big scratch on Airbag, straight out of the box. Thankfully it's not audible.

Mine had some strange markings on the second side of the second disk. Fortunately it is not audible.

I agree, it's a silly decision for something that was so expensive. The quality control for all the LPs seems to have been seriously suspect.

The way the packed vinyl "outside" the actual box wasn't very clever. It allowed movement/friction among Lp's

Question... is the download for the tape in the boxset only in MP3 or does it include as lossless copy as well?

The cassette can be downloaded in MP3 or WAV as two separate tracks, Side A and Side B.

To start, if you consider yourself a fan of Radiohead at all, the cassette, and the .mp3s of said cassette are an unbelievable journey and well worth the price of admission. (or just finding them online if you don't want to drop this kind of money) A fantastic remastering, 3 beautiful unreleased tracks and a slew of goodies within the box. The tradition of outstanding quality has been upheld with this Radiohead Box set. It will proudly be displayed and enjoyed alongside my AMSP, TKOL and In Rainbows Special Editions.

This is the best sounding vinyl I own, bar none. It's absolutely the best way to listen to one of the best albums of all time. And it's packaged beautifully.

Not a huge fan of the album, honestly, but my friend has a 2LP Black copy that he let me borrow and damn it sounded amazing. So I bit the bullet and got the 3LP Blue because everyone said it's the bee's knees and damn were they right. It sounds killer. If you are proud of your stereo on a quality standpoint you definitely need to get a copy just to hear it. High recommendation in my book.

Absolutely true for this and guilty also but I got to the point where I see the significance of making sure that I check everything out and add mine to the correct listing.Its tough especially when it comes to some of my old school Pink Floyd pressings where there's 1,000 different versions.Its very tedious but worth it when I know I've gotten it for sure.

Maybe a small amount. I think the bigger reason is people just adding whatever first release they see because they are too lazy to find the exact one they have. I used to do this as well before I was aware of reissues and the different sound and value they have.

I believe what happens at least in some cases is that people own the record and add it to their collection but then when they sell it they don't update their collection so you have a single record counted multiple times.

Thats nothing, some test pressings only were made in 12 copies and over 20 people claim to own them.

Interesting triple LP packaging approach, but I really like it. Artwork looks great too! The album sounds incredible too. Super clean and the surface noise is nil on mine, which makes the softer tracks even more rewarding sounding. This is a worthy remaster and a welcome addition to any Radiohead fan's collection. I would personally call this the definitive version to own on vinyl. It sounds leagues above the other copy I own. Only negative tick here for me is that the center hole is cut a little too small on my Disc 1. Taking this record off the player is incredibly stressful because of this, since I'm constantly afraid I'm going to accidentally snap the record no matter how careful I am.

Thanks for the review ! With some careful dexterity it's pretty easy to enlarge the spindle hole with a properly sized drill, round file, or x-acto knife...

You can very gently increase the spindle hole size by getting a knife with a very sharp edge (you know, like a kitchen knife) and turning it slowly and with not too much pressure, scraping a small amount of vinyl off the centre hole. Do it incrementally, a tiny bit on each side, until it fits perfectly. I've never had a problem doing this - and it avoids wrecking the record by bending it when it is stuck.

I totally agree with you about the sound quality of this pressing. This is the only album I own which I haven't cleaned. It looked so clean when I took it out of it's sleeve I put it straight onto my turntable to play. Wow! As you say surface noise is NIL! Add to that the fact that these are great song and this is probably my favourite album at the moment!

I was trying to ignore the comments complaining about the press quality/quality control on the US version but damn, I received a dud as well. I was given two side A/B ( IP/Skip), was missing C/D (Sky/Blue) and the bonus material LP has extra plastic around the edges because it was not cut properly. If my stylus ever caught the edge it would be done-zo. Hopefully either the Distro/Label can do something about this because I'm not stoked considering how this was priced.

A fantastic product containing all the songs on near perfectly pressed records. Not a single pop was heard throughout the entire marathon of the whole album. With the exception of the run in groove of side D (Blue) and a couple on the last record. But if its even significant to mention individual clicks and pops on a 3LP set then you should understand how good the quality is. You might be turned off by the blue coloring but I doubt the black version sounds any different. You cant do much better than a dead silent pressing. Mastering wise it displays excellent dynamics. Every instrument and sound can be appreciated with a crisp high and low end. The only thing that could be seen as a mistake is not including lyrics anywhere on this thick double gatefold with 3 inner sleeves. Since the singing is so hard to understand, especially for first time listeners it should really have been a no brainer. Another thing I dont really understand about the packaging is how they organized the sides. Maybe there is something Im missing because Im not a giant fan but if the first sleeve has a clear labeling of side A and B then why not the other 2? I dont love the photo bashed esc art either but it sure looks unique and iconic. If you have a choice between releases pick whichever is cheapest available to you of these latest remasters, you can make due without included lyrics but its definitely a big mistake on their part.Update: Im just loving the album more and more and my appreciation for the sound has not deminished the slightest as some other releases which I reviewed have. This really is one of the best digitally sourced records I have heard. Full and detailed sound staging. The only recent issue I noticed is with the song Subterranean Homesick Alien which I suspect has worn grooves from my previous Rega Cart. The high frequencies are crackly and sibilant. Ill be getting a new copy later to see if its my setup which caused the issue, if its a pressing defect or if my current MP-110 cart just cant track it properly.Equipment used:Rega RP1 with base carbon cartCyrus 2 Amplifier System Fidelity SF-3050 tower speakersCustom made HQ speaker cablesUpdated equipment:Nagaoka MP-110 cartridge

Outside of the 1997 OP, this is in my opinion the copy to own of this album. I also have the recent XL repress, which is very good too, but this pressing is near perfect!

My copy surprisingly sounds very similar to my original 97' pressing in terms of quality (very good.) And the remastering is noticeable in parts of the album with little background parts being clearer and more pronounced. The bass has also been reworked.It's worth noting that a lot of the B sides were never well recorded and still sound pretty poor but the new b-sides (I Promise, Man of War, Lift) all sound great.My copy also has the same barcode of the black copies allegedly do despite having blue wax inside. Purchased in New Zealand if it makes a difference.Overall very pleased with my purchase. The blue pressing sounds a bit better than the records from my new box set do too! (Maybe my box set was pressed in the US?)

Vinyl included in all box sets were pressed in the E.U. by Optimal Media GmbH. You can verify that by comparing the matrix info. Look for BH76012 / BH76013 / BH77761 codes in the runout grooves. Hope this helps. Thank you!

Great remaster, but there is some iffy QC on mine. There are many small indentations on the lead in groove which give a thumping sound right into the first 5 seconds of the first track. I might pick up a black copy instead.

I have a notch in the groove guard on disc one, that's impacting the edge of the lead in groove! It's going back to the record store.

Wow...I have to say I'm blown away by this mastering job. There are so many tracks on here that have got me scratching my head and thinking if certain instruments and little guitar licks were even on there in the original mix. It's definitely very a polished effort though and in someone ways it does seem a bit out of place if you've grown up with Radiohead at the time. The band is so much more chilled out these days (all relative of course) but back during the ok computer release there was so much angst, chaos and potentially even the feeling that it would all be too much for the band (see the Meeting People is Easy film and sections of the US tour where the guys look really stressed out). The less polished version (i.e.the original mix) of this album does seem to capture that feeling better. Make no doubts about it though - this one is phenomenal!

The songs are Airbag/How Am I Driving? were always my favorite non-album tracks. Really nice to have them on vinyl. The other B-sides are pretty unremarkable, but the remastered album sounds good. Haven't listened to it back to back with my original pressing, but on first listen my impression is that the sound quality is quite good. Overall I'm happy with this pressing, I think there are always going to be pressing errors in the current climate of vinyl production, and I understand people's frustrations with receiving flawed copies, but overall I think this seems much better than the Moon Shaped Pool colored vinyl and was totally worth purchasing. I've spun my copy 3 or 4 times this weekend! (There was a skip on side F, but after a couple plays it worked itself out.)

PIcked up a blue copy today from a local store in southern California. Have had my name on his list for a few weeks to buy this. Defects on side one of the first disc and label bubbling and peeling on side 2 of the last disc. Called the store owner who said he would contact Matador about it. This sucks. Owner has emailed manufacturer about it. Hopefully it works out. Will update.

So now that it's US, UK, AND EUROPE it's safe to say Rainbo is no longer pressing Radiohead XL releases. I was always under the impression Rainbo pressed for US and Optimal for UK/EUROPE.

Just finished listening to the first two discs... I'm perfectly satisfied with this release in spite of it not being my favorite pressing of OK Computer. There is some surface noise on side B and D but nothing too distracting. As a rule of thumb, however, if you're looking for highest sound quality always go with standard black vinyl. I already own a Parlophone 2nd Pressing and the 2016 XL North America pressing (my personal favorite) so I chose blue for the novelty. I also have the box set ordered and only purchased this because my full-blown vinyl addiction has eliminated any kind of patience I previously possessed as a human being. If you want the best sound quality possible, go black. If you want fancy blue records, go blue.Edit: I originally posted this under the US pressing which I own... Somehow got shifted here when Discogs did a merge.

I have all the 2016 XL reissues. They are all very good! Absolutely destroy any Capitol pressing. I only had a problem with the 12" North American pressing of Kid A. Went through a few of those before importing an EU pressing which is flawless. I also have 1st or 2nd Parlophone pressings of The Bends, OK Computer, Kid A, Amnesiac and Hail to the Thief to compare against. The XL reissues are just as good and, in some cases, even better than the original/early Parlophones.
JoJosho
JoJosho
My copy seems to sound okay. I also ordered the box set since the UK pressings of any Radiohead record are always best. I opted for the blue copy also, so now I have an original 97 Parlaphone, the blue reissue and the black UK issue from the box set. I did buy a 2016 XL reissue of In Rainbows and it beats the original 2007 TBD release all day long. Do you have any of the other 2016 pressings from XL? The consensus seems to be that they're the next best thing compared to original Paralophone pressings.

this is true. they did press more, hence the overabundance available. Feel bad for the people who overspent when it was first released. Kinda a dick move by Radiohead IMO & I'm a HUGE fan. The manufacturer also apparently sealed them too tight and this lead to a lot of bent corners, including mine.

Not a bad pressing this as reissues go and it is a rare thing of beauty to look at with the opaque blue vinyl and various inners but not quite as clear or clean as the final EMI pressing with the first vinyl containing more surface noise than expected and a lack of clarity in places , the bass is a little bit to heavy. Things improve massively for the second vinyl and whilst I haven't heard the bonus vinyl yet, I went for this limited edition mainly for the extra tracks which I've never heard on any format before. So this is better than most reissues that you're likely to hear this year but if want the definitive master of this album long after 1997 then grab a copy of this https://www.discogs.com/Radiohead-OK-Computer/release/3339642

Received my copy and I made a comparison with my ORIGINAL PARLOPHONE UK copy. First, i need to say that the new pressing is amazing and is highly recommended. I was able to listen to new background details. The high frequencies were very enjoyable to listen to. However, the bass in the original is more genuine to my ears, compared to the repress, with the latter sounding more artificial. In addition, the original has a better flow in the music, with the repress not lacking too much behind.I confirm that some remastering took place, albeit subtle. The sound feels slightly less analog and bass shy in the repress.I definitely recommend purchasing this repress to someone that does not want to invest in an original. Small differences exist, that might not be revealed to an elementary turntable and audio system.

Probably one of the best reissues that I have ever heard. I can compare this to the original CD (all that I was aware that was available when it was released) and attest to the fact that this version is light years ahead. Absolutely amazing remix, additional songs and pressing. In my opinion this album far exceeds DSOTM and Sargent Pepper...But not quite Unknown Pleasures or Bitches Brew...Well worth buying.

Good idea, support the Ebay flippers and pay £50 + for a £23 record! Not your fault I'm sure, but it's disgusting the prices people are asking for this on here and on Ebay. Someone wants £75 on here for a record released less than a week ago! Wait until the 4000 become available in the US and prices will plummet and all the flippers will be left out of pocket.

This review is for the blue vinyl edition. I do not have a previous vinyl pressing to compare to, so my comparison is with the original cd release and more recent iTunes digital version. As far as the remaster goes, they have done an excellent job IMO. There is power and clarity in the mix, but there is still ample dynamic range. No loudness war issues here... The vinyl itself is excellent. Crisp and quiet right out of the shrink wrap, and the discs are flat and centered - as you would expect from an Optimal pressing. All-In-all, an excellent release that is well worth the money and sounds fantastic on vinyl. As previously stated, I can't comment vs. Previous vinyl pressings, but compared to digital versions, this pressing holds its own admirably.

Just giving my blue opaque version a spin now. I am only listening to the third disc today as I'll need more time to listen to OK Computer all the way through. However first impressions are that this disc at least is stellar. I'll post my thoughts on the album proper in a few days. Also, my version of this has a different barcode.

Love the extra LP with the b sides and unreleased songs. Remaster of okc itself sounds good apart from some non fill noise during exit music. However the first parlaphone pressing still wins in terms of sonic bliss.
