Easily the greatest album of all time. There has never been such a convergence of rampant creativity and brilliant musicianship ever put to tape, before or since.

1996-2000 was undoubtedly Radiohead's creative pinnacle, a period producing not only three flawless LPs that were each groundbreaking in their own right, but nigh on 20 B-sides and belatedly released tracks that rival the greatest hits of other artists' entire discography's. If OK Computer was the boiling point in terms of the experimentation and chemistry between it's members, Kid A and Amnesiac were the water spilling out over the stove, an implosion of anxiety, panic and frightening tranquility.

Kid A became not so much a soundtrack to my teenage-hood as it was an embodiment of all the confusion of the post-9/11, pre-social media world I was presented with and attempting to puzzle through. I also have to credit it as a personal stepping off point in beginning to explore jazz, abstract electronica and krautrock. Thusly, I award it number 1 on my humble chart.

I was pretty close minded several years ago. This was one of the first electronica (rock) albums that I liked. How to disappear completely is one of the most interesting songs I've ever heard in terms of production. So simple chords that just loop throughout the song and than instruments start crawling in... chilling

When I first listened to the album (on first day of release) I expected OK Computer II, although there were warnings that the album would be totally different.

I took a lot of listening to get into it. Now, 15 years later, I consider it to be a magnificant album. I listen to it more than to OK Computer.
