The second album in one of the greatest musical trilogies of all time! This is the way I see it:

1. Ok Computer - The World beginning its heartless metamorphoses.
2. Kid A - The world reaching its climactic Armageddon.
3. Amnesiac - The world surpassing its much needed reincarnation - though still in a state of desolation - with clues leading back to the memories of a past-life.

I think this is a good album. Some songs are great, some not that great, and then it's 'Idioteque' which I think is a masterpiece. Some songs remind me of Bowie in his 'Berlin Instrumental' era. The album is very cohesive, and very brave sounding. But I don't think it's as great as everybody makes it out to be.

The connections that I have made with Kid A are really weird. At the time I bought Kid A, I was just beginning this album listening and collecting hobby. I bought the CD spontaneously, without even listening to it, because I was headed to Italy in about a week and I needed some new music to digest for my first overseas flight. I heard about the album from the Rolling Stone's 100 best albums of the 2000s, which at the time was my main source for music discovery (hahahahahahah). The flight schedule was flying from Cleveland's Hopkins Airport to Newark's International Airport (with about a 4 hour layover) then to Rome. The flight from Cleveland to Newark a little over an hour, which seemed like the perfect time to listen to Kid A.

I think the people next to me thought I was weird because I was completely captivated by it. You could see it in my face as I checked to see which songs were playing I love its modern and highly experimental sound, I love the variety it brings, yet still has perfect cohesiveness, and I freaking love Treefingers. Yes, Treefingers, the song that is typically skipped over the most. Some people view it as filler, I view it as a perfect interlude. Radiohead completely nailed this ambient track. Not only does it have a beautiful dark, pondering sound, but the timing of this track is so perfect. Coming after the most emotionally heavy song on the album (How To Disappear Completely), Treefingers is like that perfect moment for reflection.

So now, everytime I listen to Kid A, I think of flying 30,000 feet in the air, the beauty of modern airports, and also the such wonderful memories I had in Italy.

It took me a while to get into. I loved The Bends and OK Computer on first listen but Kid A took a little bit longer to grow on me. Now I see it as an amazing album.

From kryptos006 12/22/2014 06:12
I am just going to throw this out there: In my opinion, this album is a VERY strong candidate for the title "Greatest Album of All Time." I used to say to my friends back when I first got really into Kid A that when I listened to this album, I felt like I was being "saturated with truth." I suppose that that is a sort of vague, transcendentalist way of putting that, but I will stand by that statement: This album is probably the most beautiful thing I have ever heard. I know, it is probably a polarizing album since I can't really imagine everyone getting so in to an album as strange as this one, I still hope that you will give it a listen to see which camp you fall into.

I enjoy this album however I prefer Radioheads earlier stuff where the songs are more structured. The Bends and OK Computer were the high points for me.
