Amnesiac is certainly not as good as Kid A, In Rainbows or OK Computer, but I think it’s still an excellent album better than The Bends.

Some songs here are nothing like usual : not catchy, no choruses, sometimes no lyrics. It is unlikely to like these songs at first listen, but with several listens, you realize they contribute to make this record cohesive.

Standout tracks: Pyramid Song, You and Whose Army ?, and the amazing Life in a Glasshouse.

For years I did not like Amnesiac. Listening to it now, it still doesn't match up with their previous 3 albums, but to be fair, few bands can. Amnesiac is still really good.

Favorites: Pyramid Song, You and Whose Army?, I Might Be Wrong.

I know it's Kid A's leftovers and there are some very weird moments, but there's plenty of great tracks as well. Pyramid Song, You and Whose Army? and Knives Out are all top notch Radiohead classics.

Pyramid Song is a strong cut. The rest? Average moody rock/post-rock.

PaperVinnie, I wasn't questioning your opinion in my earlier post. You can prefer Knives Out all you like. The thing I was questioning was the "obvious standout track" part of your comment. Pyramid Song is regarded by many as the best track on the album therefore it's hardly obvious that Knives Out is the standout.

Answer to JimagineL (John Lennon):

Amnesiac has an oppressive sound atmosphere, which does not possess the cold and desolate Kid A.
Also Kid A, is the person who sees a tragedy in the distance, and Amnesiac, is the person who is within the tragedy.

It is a decent album, but feels so much like the bad brother of the family, like the Black sheep, you know. Kid A's leftovers that don't hold anything new to Radiohead espectrum other than some Jazz influences.
Think with me
Pablo Honey to The Bends
The Bends to Ok Computer
Ok Computer to Kid A
Kid A to Amnesiac?
You see a pattern being lost there?
