From JasonZaia 1 day ago
The first 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.

To joneslu: Personally, I feel the overall theme here is this: As the world begins to rely more and more on technology, and all the idiosyncrasies that go with it, the protagonist (I guess you could call him Thom York), feels that the world is ultimately sacrificing its humanity for this growing change, therefore, losing all the important things that once made us human. Obviously, this then means that the protagonist is being left behind, since he himself can't, or is unwilling to conform with the change. - And I for one, feel great empathy for the protagonist, if you catch my meaning.

P.s. This concept is very much like Pink Floyd's 'Dark Side of the Moon', only there, the increasing detachment from the world ultimately drives the protagonist insane.

Hope this helps.

So, can someone explain this hodgepodge of songs to me? I get this incoherent, sort of flurry of sounds topped with Yorke's transcendent voice shouting random lyrics. I just don't understand it, but I enjoy Paranoid Android and Exit Music (For a Film).

The Greatest album of all time? Possibly. I could live with that. However, I do feel that the second half kind of loses the pace set by the first half. This, to me, is due to the inclusion of 'Electioneering', and 'Climbing up the walls' - both incredible songs, of course, though the albums overall flow would have been much better without them.

Great album. Radiohead really made a statement with this album. I could do without 'Fitter Happier' but it works with the whole 90's lifestyle theme. I don't think it's the best album of all time, but I recognize the huge importance and impact it made in pop music.

Best album of all time! Reasons, every song is great in consistency, but a different sounding song to the previous. Many albums you listen to an album and all the tracks have the same sound or same guitar through out, this is a one off album. As for Radiohead they have many great albums but this is what to compare an album to. It always gets voted as the number 1 album, so it only makes sense it's top of this one.

That being said music is an art form, not a sport. This is fine art at its best.

I'm yet to find the reason why this album is so massively overrated. I mean it's a fantastic album, but it's not even their best one!

Kid A and In Rainbows (especially the first one) are much, much better than this.

I can't hide that Paranoid Android is an astonishing song though:

9,5/10

Surely not the best album of all times (so I disagree with BEA) and not the best one of the 90s, but certainly the best Radiohead's album and part of my all-times top 20, it is very representative of the british musical background of the late 90s.
