OK Computer - The Binary Theory

OK Computer - The Binary Theory

According to "Binary Theory," 'In Rainbows' and 'OK Computer' are intended to complement each other, and there are clues in both albums that point to this fact, notably that the working title of 'OK Computer' was Zeroes and Ones and that 'In Rainbows' came out on 10/10, 10 years after 'OK Computer'. The playlist for this "lost Radiohead album" requires alternating tracks from each album (and switching the order of alternation at track 11).


So, 'OK Computer is designed to be played in tandem with ‘In Rainbows’, released 10 years later. The method is, largely, to alternate between the albums, and the tracks are said to merge into one another. Freaky. A “source close to” Thom Yorke said how surprised he was at how long it took everyone to work this out. Well, you’d need a lot of time on your hands.
