Perfect rock album. One of the best album I've ever heard
@SaulCortes1992 It actually happened about 5 months ago for a week, and then Kid A's rank score suddenly dropped 1,000 points, and it's been trying to get back since.
Kid A finally overtook Nevermind :) This is great!
Oh my, where do I begin on this masterpiece? It's proof that a band can dish out one brilliant album, completely tear apart their style, and still produce another fantastic album 3 years later.
Kid A, put simply, is what happens when a band finds that it's sound isn't what they want. So they tear themselves apart and put themselves back together again to form a completely different entity. This entity, unlike 1997's OK Computer, which I still think is their best album, is far more experimental. Containing influences from IDM, free jazz and classical music, this album is nearly the exact opposite of their previous release. Only 3 tracks in its 10 song tracklisting contain guitars, and out of those 3 only 1 can be something that is remotely close to any of the songs on their last album.
All it really takes to realize that Kid A is nothing like OK Computer is the first 4 notes of Everything in its Right Place. The whole song sounds very IDM influenced, with the vocal sampling and repetitive chord progressions.
Eventually it leads to the title track, which is quite unlike any other song in recent memory. Containing Thom singing with a vocoder, repetitive but addicting drums from Phil, what sounds like a wind up musical box with a melody written by Jonny, hypnotizing and crazy sound effects from Ed, and last but not least catchy basslines from Colin, this entire song sounds extremely alien but yet seems very familiar. Despite its rather friendly name and composition the lyrical matter is far darker than expected.
Then we have The National Anthem, a piece that opens with Thom playing a distorted bassline and Phil giving us a beat. This also showcases the first time the band uses the Ondes Martenot, a French electronic instrument used quite frequently in soundtracks for sci-fi films. The Martenot provides a rather eerie and dark atmosphere while the sound of a jazz band fades in and out, never quite materializing. For a while the song seems quite normal, with the exception of the aforementioned jazz band. And then the band kicks in full swing, with all brass instruments going full haywire. Above it all, Thom's frantic shouts of "It's holding on!" add to the frantic and chaotic mood of the song. All too soon it ends quite climactically, and a sample of a classical piece brings us to the next song.
Once again I'm afraid I have too much praise for this album. Any more would simply annoy even the most devout of Radiohead fans. Kid A is a masterpiece of an album, and although it takes a while to understand, with repeated listens one will begin to realize how perfect each song is, and how amazing the album in general is. It truly is worthy of it's 10/10 rating.
I's just perfection of art rock
Kid A isn't an immediate album of satisfaction. A lot of the album has a cold and disturbing demeanor that isn't as instantly gratifying as "the Bends" persay. But stick to this album and one of the finest albums in recent memory is revealed. I don't really feel like I need to elaborate on each song because A) the praise of this album is clearly well exemplified B) it's really an album you should experience for yourself. Because Kid A really is a masterwork of music.
A thunderstorm is rolling in very early this morning, and I had to put this record on, as I knew it would match the mood perfectly. The tiny tinker in "Kid A," the lush audio soundscapes layered on "In Limbo." This album gets a lot of cred for a reason: it's exquisite.
I didn't always think so. At very first listen, as an idiotic 23 year old, "I didn't get it." I had loved Amnesiac and thought this would be an easy transition, but I wasn't paying attention. It wasn't until a few years later when I worked early mornings that I really "got" it.
I had miles of black highways in front of me, and I felt Thom's voice eerily creep in and out of the landscape and electronic waves that enveloped me like a auditory ghost who was along for the ride with me.
Even now, so many years later, as I listen with the black clouds covering the sky and the rain just starting to fall, I'm in love all over again. I still remember those black highways separated by double yellow lines, and how the eerie, gorgeous sounds of "How to Disappear Completely" swallowed me whole. "I'm not here/this isn't happening."
simply a perfect album
Literally Kid A. A lot of rock fans wouldn't even give electronic music a second look if it weren't for this album.
the death of rock: perfect album for anything
