OK Computer is best ever

Feeling OK ... Radiohead

Sun Online

RADIOHEAD have topped a poll by the readers of Q Magazine to find the greatest album ever - narrowly beating themselves to the No1 spot.

The band's 1997 record OK Computer won the vote, with 1995's The Bends grabbing second position. Their more experimental follow-up Kid A also made the Top 10.

Almost one third of Q's 100 Greatest Albums Ever were recorded in the 1990s, making it the best ever decade for music.

Nineties records that charted highly include Nirvana's Nevermind, which came third, Oasis' fifth-placed Definitely Maybe and The Stone Roses' self-titled debut album at No6.

There was some success for older bands - The Beatles came fourth with Revolver - but landmark records like The Clash's London Calling and Beach Boys' Pet Sounds had to make do with the outer reaches of the Top 20.

Voters also sprang a surprise by ranking Madonna's 1998 album Ray Of Light at No33, ahead of classics by The Rolling Stones, Blur and Jimi Hendrix.

The newest record to make the list was Coldplay's A Rush Of Blood To The Head, which was released in 2002 and ranked 25th.

The Top 20 are:

1. Radiohead - OK Computer (UK)
2. Radiohead - The Bends (UK)
3. Nirvana - Nevermind (US)
4. The Beatles - Revolver (UK)
5. Oasis - Definitely Maybe (UK)
6. The Stone Roses - The Stone Roses (UK)
7. R.E.M. - Automatic For The People (US)
8. Oasis - (What's The Story) Morning Glory? (UK)
9. U2 - Achtung Baby (IRE)
10. Radiohead - Kid A (UK)
11. U2 - The Joshua Tree (IRE)
12. The Smiths - The Queen Is Dead (UK)
13. Jeff Buckley - Grace (US)
14. The Beatles - Abbey Road (UK)
15. Pink Floyd - The Dark Side Of The Moon (UK)
16. The Verve - Urban Hymns (UK)
17. The Beatles - The Beatles (UK)
18. The Beach Boys - Pet Sounds (US)
19. The Beatles - Sgt Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band (UK)
20. The Clash - London Calling (UK)
