* MostWonderfulSound: That moment from "Paranoid Android" when Thom starts singing "YOU DON'T REMEMBER" is one of the greatest parts of the song for many people.

* AndYouThoughtItWouldFail: Very little people thought ''Music/OKComputer'' was going to be successful, and deemed the record to be uncommercial. Cue several million copies being sold (and debuting at #1 in the UK for two weeks), and frequently being listed as one of the greatest albums of all time.

** The aspects of ''A Moon Shaped Pool'' shaped by Thom's divorce from his wife of 23 years become astronomically [[TearJerker sadder]] once you discover that [[http://www.pmb.ox.ac.uk/news/dr-rachel-owen-1968-2016 his wife has passed away]].

** The band's fanbase is heavily split over whether or not "Electioneering" is a good song. Some argue that it's a perfectly fine song on its own merit, others argue that it's good but not ''as'' good as the other ''OK Computer'' songs, and others argue that it sounds completely out of place on the album, what with the more blunt and straightforward approach instead of the normal ambiguity. Thom's statement [[CreatorBacklash that he retrospectively would've left the song off the album]] has done a fair amount to stir the pot.
