Great all round album, however it needs to be played from start to finish to truly enjoy, otherwise it would lose its best qualities. Surrender your self for its full length to submerge yourself in joy.

This album is beautiful in the same way that a tragedy is beautiful. It's a tortured mess in every perfect way.

One of my favorite albums ever! In my top 5 right now. Even slightly better than OK Computer :) But when I frist heard Kid A I didn't really understand it.

The thing that makes this album a masterpiece is that it stepped into the 21st century with a statement of pure progressive intent, leaving behind the 20th century formula that was tried and true. Most bands would either not be brave enough or wouldn't have the talent to pull it off. The thing I love about the music on Kid A is the sense of disembodiment that occurs with the studio production. Nigel Godrich should always be considered when discussing the genius of a Radiohead album. The disembodiment is unquestionably reflective of Thom's headspace during this phase of his life but to make it truly palpable it required some very astute studio production.

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.

At first it sounded like crap. Now it sounds like every note is completely right. A work of art from start to finish.
