I love when Bands evolve, change, and transform and no one does that better than Radiohead. Having said that, I don't absolutely love Kid A or have as strong a connection to it as other Radiohead albums.
I am crazy impressed with its originality and from a brain place think it is a classic. It just doesn't register that way for me emotionally. The album is too uneven for me.
Classics lie Idioteque, Everything in Its Right Place, and National Anthem get bogged down by throwaways like Treefingers, In Limbo, Morning Bell, and Motion Soundtrack.
Radiohead is the second best band ever so this album is great. It seems like most people put it 1st or 2nd in their best of radiohead catalogue.
I have it 5th behind OK Computer, In Rainbows, Bends, and Hail to the Thief.....in that order
Certainly a good album, but I don't feel it´s their best album along with Ok Computer or alone. Also, I don´t think it´s the best album of the decade. I've been listening to this album for a long time and still don't get the praise it gets. Yeah, it is very original, but the songs aren't their best ones, except for Idioteque, How To Disappear Completely and Motion Picture Soundtrack, I love those tracks. Then, there are good songs like Optimistic, Morning Bell, Everything In Its Right Place, but they aren´t so incredible like the other songs. And the rest of the songs, like In Limbo, Treefingers, Kid A and National Anthem don´t do much for me and seem to be some kind of regular songs, nothing spectacular. They do have some interesting passages and things, like the bassline on National Anthem and the ambience of In Limbo, they are very good, but only up to there. I can´t understand how National Anthem is one of the best songs of the album according to this website.
Many may dissagree with me, but I don´t feel this is one of the best records ever. I prefer OK Computer and In Rainbows. Been trying to "understand" this album since a long time but it slightly gets better, nothing more up to now. I hope someday I will get why is this an incredible album, but for me, it's just a good album. I don't know, just some of the songs aren't at the same level of the better tracks on the album. However, I do like the ambience and feelings that this album produces.
It took me so long to get this album. But it was so worth it. Every time I put this thing on, I'm in another world. Favorites are Idioteque, Morning Bell, National Anthem, Everything In Its Right Place, and How to Disappear Completely.
Extremely overrated! Great album, don't get me wrong but very overrated. The sound is too abstract and purposely not amazing to be in the top 10 or even top 50. Not even the 2nd best Radiohead album imo.
Radiohead might be the greatest band ever. While I hate to use superlatives, they might be the band that best displays the intention with which they make music. Each album is a logical progression of the last, making Kid A a much better album when contextualised with their others. One of the biggest shocks in musical history, Kid A alienated many on original release with its extremely cold electronic sound. It took many listens to realise this album's greatness (actually, this was the first Radiohead album I heard), but once it clicked, I couldn't look back. Taking a genre many people considered to be pedestrian, they fused the IDM style of Aphex Twin and Autechre (best epitomised in the title track) with their art rock sound, introducing electronic music to the mainstream. "The National Anthem" and "Idioteque" best define this album's sound for me.
I know it's incredibly cliché to say this, but this album grew on me so much. After my first listen, I was incredibly disappointed and thought this was so overrated and didn't understand how it was so disliked. After my third listen, I thought it was mediocre and still didn't really "get it." It took about six listens for me to really start to love this album. OK Computer is easier and more accessible, but after really looking over both of them and listening many times to both, I have to say I prefer Kid A.
How do you begin with Kid A?
It's 47 minutes of exceptional diversity and musical excellence, with an incredible range of genres and styles effortlessly utilised. Hints of 90s Radiohead are blended with an all new electronic soundscape, which varies from dance inspired rhythms to post-apocalyptical instrumentals.
Intertwined within this are some pretty groundbreaking, politically driven lyrics, often complemented brilliantly by the structure and composition of the music.
As to how to interpret all of it? I reckon it's either a concept album about the first human clone, or a reality check for the 21st century. Or a cynical look at capitalism. Or Thom Yorke's life conceptualised into music. I don't know. The music is hard enough to decipher, let alone the lyrics. In fact it's hard to distinguish between them at points. What.
And good holy lord, it just sounds so good. I think it's the best 'sound' I've heard in my life. One of the most competent, complete and rewarding albums.....well, ever.
Incredibly weird but also incredibly artistic.
This album is about the first human clone and the identity struggle it would face, questioning whether it's real or fake. However, this theme is not developed lyrically. It's interesting to see how this narrative is developed through the production. The swing from robotic, metallic, and claustrophobic songs like The National Anthem to beautiful, sentimental and organic songs like How to Disappear Completely explore and convey this theme. Thom Yorke's vocals constantly change from metallic whims used as an instrument to an emotional performance leading the soundscape rather than being lost in it. Even the album art reflects the real vs. fake struggle, with mountains being suspiciously jagged and digitized. Just this aspect to the production alone would make this a worthwhile listen, but the songwriting is amazing as well. It also took guts for Radiohead to just release this into the mainstream after their extreme success with rock music. There are many things that make this an amazing piece of art, like many of Radiohead's other works.
Considerably better than OK Computer. Worthy of the top 100 albums.
