I remember this jarring the senses after OK Computer, there were many unexpected bleeps and twitches in the music, the immediate stand out track was How To Disappear Completely, which sounded more or less like the Radiohead of old.
Some tracks didn't really impress me for a couple of years, but now tracks like Everything In Its Right Place, Idioteque, Optimistic and Motion Picture Soundtrack continue to impress.
Ok, my last comment hot thumbs down so hear me out. I am not saying that Radiohead is not a good band or even a great band, I am saying that I think this album is ranked a bit too highly. If you cannot think of 6 albums that should be ranked higher than this in terms of creativity, sound, lyrics, and importance, you probably don't know too much about music. I can understand Radiohead being a subjective favorite band but even then you must concede that in terms of overall greatness, this album is far from THE best. For my opinion: This album was produced incredibly well. The sound is very expansive and the album uses an incredible range of sound. It needs more smooth vocal melody though. It needs more songs that flow -it has a choppy feel to it. I understand part of that is the point but I do think they went a bit far. I do however like how musical and lyrical themes expand upon each other. To conclude I concede that radiohead has some fans that insist upon them being the best and that alone is respectable.
BEST EVER ALBUM! NO DOUBT
Not a bad album, but does it belong in the top ten? No, no, no, and certainly not. They tell a story of isolation, existential crisis, and expand (too much for my taste) on the computer type sound. I just can't understand why Radiohead is so overrated. Sure, I would put OK Computer in the top 20 albums and this in the top 50, but Kid A is not up there with the greats. To sum this up: good, not great.
Idioteque is my favourite track in Kid A and one of my most beloved songs in Radiohead's long history.
At first it sounded like crap. Now it sounds like every note is completely right. A work of art from start to finish.
I am like others in that I never really thought that this album was one of the better Radiohead albums at first. But after a while a lot more of the songs appealed to me. I think that I just had a hard time with the structure and the more experimental songs, but now those are some of my favorites from the album. Specifically, everything in its right place does an effective job setting the tone difference between Kid A and OKC. The title track is a great experimental ambient drum experiment, and the national anthem is a dive into the grotesque. TNA is probably the most sonically interesting song on the album, it has a gritty baseline and a lot of horns that are playing in frantic sloppy fashion. The first three songs really are the meat of the weird experimental electronica, after that the album becomes more traditional radiohead with dashes of electronic influences weaved into it.
Radiohead was on top of the music world after OK Computer, and thier next album was widely anticipated. No one expected what Radiohead released in 2000. Kid A was even more experimental than OK Computer and owed more to Aphex Twin and Autechre than any rock band, including Radiohead's previous work. Radiohead pushldd extremely deep into electronic music, and despite working in new territory for the band, they somehow managed to create and album of great emotion and depth. Kid A pushed against every boundary on rock musix that cohld be conceived of, and came away with a breathtaking album which still amazes me to this day. Incredibly moving and innovative, any other follow-up to the best album of the last several decade would have been disappointing, but Kid A made fans understand that Radiohead's talent was real and here to stay.
This album took me forever to "get". I never really listened to it much outside of Idioteque and Optimistic. One day I turned on the album while out on a jog, and it was the first time that the title track (Kid A) and National Anthem clicked for me. This has become one of my favorite, and most enduring albums.
It's super weird but after further listens you find a great slap-in-the-face to conventional rock and expectations of the band with moments bordering on Genius (how to disappear, national anthem, chord prog in track 1). Also a sample from the very first electronic recording in idioteque.
