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.
Finally listened to Kid A in it's entirely and I could say that it is one of the best albums of the 2000's. Not my all time best but it is up there with my personal favorite Radiohead album In Rainbows.
There is nothing that touches or even approaches the level of success achieved by such wild and unique experimentation. Radiohead was so fed up with the world that they decided to make the most beautiful thing in it.
This is a bit more interesting than Amnesiac. I think the production is more relaxed and I like that.
Favorite tracks: Everything in Its Right Place, The National Anthem, How to Disappear Completely, Optimistic, Idioteque
Least favorite track: Kid A
I can't be the only one to have thought this but it is possible the "A" in Kid A actually stands for Amnesiac.... Considering the two were recorded during the same time period, both have similar production, and with Amnesiac being considered to be outtakes or B-sides its entirely plausible they intended for a double album and decided against it and released them separately. Idk they sound too well together to not at least think about it. I made a playlist mashing the two together and this was the track listing. Listen for yourself and see what you think.

The most bold record I can think of. Amazing in every way.
OK Computer changed the alt rock scene forever. Radiohead reached their peak of fame with their last catchy song with "Karma Police". The album after that was long awaited and over-hyped (like now-a-days maybe?) but when people started listening they found a completely new band.
If OK Computer is a dystopia, Kid A is hell. Although the lyrics are at times too abstract, a post-apocalyptic world can be read between lines. The new electronic direction the band took for this record really pays off, giving a cold and urgent feeling to the overall record. The first notes on "Everything in Its Right Place" always give me goosebumps, but after a while, the dark nature of Kid A starts dawning on me.
This is not a ground-breaking album as many people make it out to be musically speaking. There is a lot of experimentation in songs such as "The National Anthem", but the electronic bits are just Yorke being inspired by previous works in electronic music. What is ground-breaking though, is the whole concept of Kid A following an album such as OK Computer. Radiohead could have followed with a safe carreer, but instead they chose to make something radically different, giving birth to one of their best albums if not their best (rivaled only by its predecessor).
If OK Computer felt sad, Kid A feels lonely. The song from which the album gets its name always makes me feel like I'm floating in space. "How to Disappear Completely" (the album's best song) always leaves me devastated by the lyrics and the simple yet beautiful chord progression and the slowly appearing layers of strings and electronic sounds.
There are other great songs in this album but I would just be repeating myself and what other have already said. Even my thoughts on "How to Disappear Completely" have already been made in the past, but I just had to talk about that song. Overall, Kid A is a great record. Not the best album of all time, but a beautiful, melancholic and intriguing record full of mystery and loneliness.
I used to really like this one when I was first getting into Radiohead back in middle school, but revisiting it, its a little to experimental for my taste. Its still good, but I definitely prefer OK Computer, The Bends, and In Rainbows.
Oh Kid A is just great. Thom learns piano and pens "Everything in it's Right Place", Johnny studies symphonic music and hangs out with Penderecki and writes the string section on "How to Disappear Completely" I don't like superlatives like "they reinvented rock" at this they are so far away from rock at this point, but they made something special here.
While it is not as well-written and intricate as OK Computer, it is a all-around beautiful album with one of the darkest and most immense atmosspheres I know, throughout its whole length. I never liked the techno-vibe, but overall it´s Radioheads second best album.
