So unique. Can only imagine listening to it when it came out.

When I first listened to Kid A it was so unlike anything I'd heard before that I initially hated it. But over repeated listens, this has become not only my favorite Radiohead album, but one of my all time favorites. Radiohead manages to create gorgeous soundscapes on every track, with Kid A, Idioteque, and Motion Picture Soundtrack being some of the highlights.

Yes you might 'lose much of the ambience' if Treefingers and Motion picture soundtrack were removed, I completely agree. But they're still crap. And i don't agree they're 'essential'. They are nowhere near in the same class as say side two of Bowie's Low and Heroes which I would say are essential for the overall listening experience of those records.

Treefingers and Motion Picture Soundtrack are an essential part of what gives this album a desolate, disembodied feel and you would lose much of that ambience/feel if they were removed. If you prefer your albums to be like compilation, best-of albums then it might not make sense to you but Kid A is to be experienced in its entirety, enclosing you within another, somewhat discomforting place

It's good but I'm shocked that anyone could seriously compare it to the quality of, The Bends, and, Ok computer. It is simply not in the class of those other two magnificent records. There are some great moments but there are also bits of pointless musical doodles that seem to be there for no particular reason. 75% is very good,especially, Everything in it's right place, and, How to disappear completely, the other 25% like, Treefingers, and, Motion picture soundtrack, are rubbish. In my opinion, Radiohead would never be as great as they were 1995-1997 again. Good album but slightly overrated.

I'm not quite on-board the "best album ever" train yet. It's good, but doesn't really excite me.

Oh boy this album.. i have tried and tried to really like it i listened it many many times and while it has grown on me a lot, enough since the first listen to earn an 7.5/10 from me i just can't understand why is this album always number 1 or 2 everywhere from Radiohead albums.

Definitely one of those albums where you can't really rate the tracks individually, but only as a part of the whole thing. That says something about this album's incredible flow where not a single note is out of place. Truly a masterpiece.

From ECUpirate 12/24/2017 04:38
This is the one album I've encountered where I'm not even sure how to rate these tracks. I mean I hear the songs and look at the star ratings and I'm not even sure how I could rate these tracks. This album is extremely impressive and I would like to give them all 100's since they are so unique and incredibly powerful, but yet the album is so intimidating I find myself rarely coming back to this album when in the mood for radiohead.

Such a strange album. Very impressive, but as a result of how powerful the paranoia in this album is it makes me reluctant to listen to it much. I suppose it has to be one of the greatest pieces of art from that emotional power alone. It might very well be the most impressive album I've ever heard, but yet I couldn't possibly put something that intimidates me away from listening too high in my overall. I dont know...I do know 'How To Disappear Completely' is one of the most beautiful songs I've ever heard.
