Connor, ok computer is hardly a big guitar album is it? C'mon. Maybe level that at people who say they love the bends. I reckon kid a is a good album but not in the same league as ok computer. Shows you how great they are though to do a run of bends, computer and kid and have many people have a different one of those as their all time fave album, also each one so diverse from the last. Always thought idioteque was the best track on here and morning bell possibly my least favourite radiohead track ever.

ok computer is more accessible and also not nearly as great as Kid A. Don't get me wrong, ok comp is a great album too. Kid A is just on a whole different level...

I would like to ask you guys to finally be honest and say you like ok computer more because they have guitars in all of the songs. Just admit you suck at listening to different genres and cant handle the greatness that is Kid A.

After many listens i don't even know why people are comparing the two (why im writing this). Clearly more innovative and mind blowing Kid A is the Radiohead album to be praised.

*More guitar solos don't make an album better

More ambitious than OK Computer, it's the album that took all the chances, creating an artists distillation on disillusionment and isolation. When I listen to it, it takes me to another world, both dark and terrifying as well as magically beautiful. - Adrian Nickpour

One of the greatest pieces of song-writing ever created.

I love Radiohead, really, and this album contains masterpieces such as How to disappear completely and Optimistic. But I have to say that Kid A is seriously overrated. This is definitely not the best album of the 2000's. I enjoy listening it anyway.

I'll be honest. After loving OK Computer (in my top 5 ever), I listened to this and I immediately hated it with passion. And a few listens didn't change my mind after all.

It took me a lot of time till the album finally started to click and I began to slowly appreciate the songs one by one. I'm still not completely fond of some songs (Treefingers, Morning Bell, Motion Picture) which I still find somewhat boring, but there's definitely a few masterpieces to listen to, and the album fits every song together nicely.

It's radically different to OK Computer though, so you can't come to this album expecting anything like it, it will be a huge disappointment

Best tracks: Everything in its Right Place, Idioteque, National Anthem, Optimistic

I listened to this once in 2000 when I first bought it. Expecting OK Computer 2, I felt disappointed and didn't listen to it again for years. Only now, 14 years later am I beginning to fully appreciate the majesty of this true masterpiece. And that's after about 10 forced listenings in the car - I finally made the breakthrough. What an album. Beautiful and groundbreaking in equal measure. How many albums can boast that?

Mesmerising. It took a few listens to fully appreciate this album, but when you get it, you get it. An almost perfect album and a huge change from the alt-rock Radiohead we knew from albums such had "The Bends" and "OK Computer".

Best tracks: Everything in its right place, Idioteque, Optimistic, How to disappear completely.
