An interstellar burst

#14 Radiohead, OK Computer (Capitol, 1997)

Sometimes the canon makers are right.

Have you read the appendix to Harold Bloom's The Western Canon? Entitled "The Rockin Canon," it ranks OK Computer slightly lower than the arias of Carmen but higher than the Uncle Tom musicals of the turn-of-the-century south. And I wish by turn-of-the-century south I meant 19th, but some things never change below the Mason-Dixon.

I think the only piece that's part of "The Rockin Cannon" in the 1812 Overture.
