I used to dislike Radiohead a lot, but this album and In Rainbows both changed my mind about them. I mean, this thing is just beautiful.
OK Computer might do conventional 'songwriting' better (beautiful verse - beautiful chorus - beautiful verse - beautiful chorus) but Kid A is my favourite Radiohead album because instead of trying to beat its predecessor at its own game like so many bands that would follow (Coldplay's A Rush Of Blood To The Head or Travis' The Man Who for example) it chose to rip up the rule book entirely and write a new one. The shades of genre influence on this thing is astonishing; IDM, Jazz, & Folk all twist and writhe through a record that hardly seems to fit 'rock' at all. Not until Kendrick Lamar has anyone come close to marrying so many disparate styles of music and making it sound monumental.
You'd think the constant nods to different styles would obscure the emotional impact of this album, but it's in this skill that Radiohead cement their place as the greatest art rock band of all time. The National Anthem's infectious bassline and clattering drums holds together a track that disintegrates towards chaos with every passing second and demands your own throbbing response, whilst the title track's first refrain of 'standing in the shadows at the end of my bed' lets slip a moment of forlorn human pain in an otherwise icy robotic landscape. And not to mention the fact that Motion Picture Soundtrack is quite possibly the saddest piece of music ever written. This record is always talked about in the context of 'best of the 2000s' or 'best of the 21st century'; I think really we should be holding up the classics to this.
Most of this is copied from the description of the album in my overall chart, do check it out if you have the time!!
Every time I listen to this album I still discover something new. A peek into the future by Radiohead. A masterpiece!
Foreshadowed by the bouts of paranoia, world-weariness and Macintosh software present on OK Computer, Kid A established Radiohead as a band willing to do more than just dominate the confines of the rock genre - to break outside of it.
It's not great, but it's good enough.

Gets better every listen, aged extremely well
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.
I must re-listen to this album, upon release I was quite underwhelmed. Today's I will do exactly that , watch this space .....
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.
No puedo creer el estatus que tiene este álbum. Ridículo.
