The Record That Changed My Life: John Baizley of Baroness Discusses Radiohead's 'OK Computer'

OK Computer was the sound of free expression within the confines and parameters of a rock band, but it also seemed to leave plenty of open road on which to explore further. It’s a shame to think that at one point I considered this a guilty pleasure. It’s a humbling listen, and like any hallmark of music history it has come to mean more to me than the simple sum of its parts. It is human expression laid to tape. For the musician, the artist, the layperson and the dissenter alike, this record can offer a glimpse of something new.”
