Don't like Radiohead at all, and I can't stand the Pink Floyd album except for MONEY, so I guess I gotta vote for the Pink Floyd as the least terrible of the 2 albums.

Me neither, I don't share your opinions on PF though, so it's an even clearer choice for me: The Dark Side of the Moon!

I like the two albums. But OK computer is great, to the first second to the last. One of the few perfect albums. So... d'accord ordinateur !

I like both, so it was a hard decision:

Radiohead - OK Computer

Wish You Were Here would win easily.

This tournament has proceeded rather neatly, so according to my all time list:

1 | Pink Floyd | The Dark Side Of The Moon
2 | Radiohead | OK Computer

It seems as though this is a fairly even poll, yet it doesn’t seem like many are struggling

OK Computer.

Once top ten all time for me, now more like 300, but better than Dark Side.

Even if some of the memorable things about the album start to come off as gimmicky after a decade or two.

I actually agree with most people saying that OK Computer has lost its impact and quality for them over the years. I used to enjoy it, and would probably have called it my favorite album, but I have since come to sort of fall out of love with it. Of course, still an A+ album, amazing in every way, but no longer the best ever. I've actually come to like Kid A, In Rainbows, and The King of Limbs (a bit of a personal pleasure of mine) much more. However, The Dark Side of the Moon never really impressed me that much, though I understand the appreciation for it. However, I do wonder if this tournament is indicative that OK Computer may no longer be voted as the best by our forum (I, personally, am hoping for a bit of a shake-up).

That is a nice sentiment, but if the former #2 (Abbey Road) was the king-slayer, that would be be the most miniscule "shakeup" in history.
