Krautrock, jazz and classical music was fuzzing around in a Thom Yorke, who by 1997 had burned out from the recordings for OK Computer. This variety of genres mixed with Yorke's increasing fascination with computers and programming led to the magnificent creation of Kid A.

Being the follow-up to one of music history's unanimously most important records, what Yorke set out to do was a clear example of an artist true to his integrity, who had the courage and who was not ruined by commercial success to take the easy choice and go towards the sound of The Bends which had the blockbuster-selling guitar driven sound.

The soundscape and production of Kid A is as authentic as nothing else to me and leaves me feeling utterly exhausted and a little paranoid after a focused listen. Yorke masters the way of making instrumentation and emotional expression work together, from the scratching voices on "Everything Is In Its Right Place" to the metallic and reverberating sound of his voice on the title track which feels incredibly isolated and hollow.

A tantilizing masterpiece boldly rated higher than their commercial masterpiece OK Computer because of my personal experience with this album and what I believe is the underestimation of Kid A and the revolutionizing way of mixing feelings into sound - this really is, I believe, what this album exhibits better than any other in music history.

Beautiful, cold and distant and warm and really really close at the same time, terrific experience. (sorry for the pretensiousness, this album just brings it out in me)

I could listen to the first five notes of Everything In Its Right Place all day.

Every time I listen to this album, I listen closer, and am rewarded graciously. I encourage everyone to listen to this record in a dark room with headphones, or while walking on a quiet night. It's a different experience. I think this album tops OK Computer, probably.

Frank Zappa's quote 'Jazz is not dead, it just smells funny' applies nicely to this album.
Favorite track is 'The National Anthem'.
I listened to this after Steely Dan's 'Two Against Nature' and before King Crimson's 'The Construkction Of Light', delicious!

Structure wise, this is their best album. The others are all fantastic, too, though.
