Welcome to the Machine : OK Computer and the Death of the Classic Album

Book - 2007
Rate this:
Footman's book gives a detailed track-by-track breakdown of OK Computer - hailed as the last of the classic albums - and traces its influences, from music, film, literature, art and politics. Setting the album in the context of the period in which it was released, Footman shows how the songs are intended to sit alongside one another, released in an era before downloads and cherry-picking the hits were even fashionable. Not only the largest and most detailed study yet published of the last ever classic album, but the most in-depth analysis of Radiohead available.
