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.

Tough album to get into, but as time goes with more listens, you soon realize how brilliant it is

I remember the first time I listened to any Radiohead song other than "Creep". I was a young teen looking for some other song like this one or Hoobastank's "The Reason" or "Hey There Delilah" (yup). I listened to some random songs in their Best Of album and soon got very confused and a bit dissapointed at the new direction this band took. Shame. Fortunately, not even one year later my taste in music changed and I started looking for more serious stuff, and started listening to Sgt. Pepper's and looking for good bands through Internet webs.

After I saw that my brother had Pablo Honey in his MP3, I listened to give it a shot, and I actually liked it so I decided I had to revisit those weird songs from Radiohead but this time I would do it right: I was going to listen to the whole albums and in order, slowly and repeatedly, to see the evolution of this band. I listened to and loved The Bends, but then I crossed OK Computer and I kept myself thinking: "how could they ever top OK Computer"? I actually stopped listening to their albums until a friend recommended me In Rainbows and, surprised at the change of style I decided I should continue with my journey.

I still remember that first time I put Kid A and got a bit knocked out with that opening with Everything In Its Right Place. It was weird how from beginning to end I had to force myself to stay in the chair because the album was a complete mess, but at the same time it devoured me into the world of Kid A. Now, only a "few" more listens later, after finding some sense in this album it makes sense to me, but I still get dragged into its fantasy world.

There is no way to explain what this masterpiece can show you. To know what this album is you need to listen to those synths in Everything In Its Right Place that tell you are experiencing something from outside this world, the Kid A weird noises that tell you you have been abducted by aliens, that The National Anthem bass that touches your G-spot (I am a guy, but it doesn't matter), that walk on the surface of Jupiter thanks to How To Disappear Completely and Treefingers, those amazing drums in Optimistic...

I can go on, but it would not make any difference. Kid A is not an album, it is an experience. And the world of music is still today, 14 years later, to get near to this album that obviously got sent from the future to Thom Yorke's backyard in a time machine.

Radiohead's definitive evolution towards an atmospherical and mind-blowing form of art-rock mixed with electronic music. The result is surely interesting, even if it's a bit weaker than their masterpiece Ok Computer.

From arthurbittencourt 10/01/2014 19:36
First thing, this album is like that twist in the plot that makes the movie groundbreak to a whole other level in the career of this band. Here's what I've got for trying to explain my feelings for this epic record. Beauty pictured when disturbing and extreme brilliance experience through 10.000 dead angels falling, leak diving in morning war skies, bodies hiting deep deep devilish sea boiling in primitive rich dark waters and people of faith in lonesome void
landscapes. Alone because no extraterrestrial form ever visited that place. So & so eating the rest of angels frustratingly.
Truly raw and sad unlike any other feeling that ever pounded earth.

A totally mind-blowing album indeed. With the many experimental and altertive sounds, it is really a masterpiece.

Just as good as OK Computer, if not better. It's hard to imagine Radiohead getting it this good again.
