In 2010 BBC Music wrote that Arcade Fire,s The Suburbs was there OK Computer but arguably better then that. Debate has since continued over the internet most people calling it a laughable statement.
I personally felt the statement ridiculous and sure The Suburbs has won many awards and praise but how many people actually bought that album? Wonder if its anywhere near OK Computers 14 million worldwide? I know sales arent everything but it definently plays a part when determining which album is better.
That is absolutely ridiculous! I'm biased, of course, because I am a total Radiohead fanatic, and OK Computer is my favourite album of all time. I listened to the Suburbs and I enjoyed it- but it's not as unique and ground breaking as OK Computer.
