Best Tracks: The National Anthem, Idioteque, Motion Picture Soundtrack
Kid A is a landscape. More than any other album I've heard, this project is one cohesive album. Where some SONGS have notable changes and dynamic constrasts, this album exaggerates its ups and downs by pairing different but similar songs right next to each other. For as erethreal and atmospheric this album is, it manages to be incredibly groovy when it's supposed to be. The first two tracks make me think of the flat, icy surface depicted on the album cover, combining mysterious vocal lines and chord progressions with ambient keyboard and glitchy background vocals. The title track lays down a subtle groove, met with more synthesized melodies and invasive electronic strings. The song resolves in the madness to a final harmonic on the guitar, a glimmer of hope in the desolate landscape. For a split second, we hear an absence of sound for the first time in the album. Before we can begin to enjoy the break, The National Anthem begins, with the standalone bass line roaring in your ears. The song breaks into a straight jam session, with grooving drum fills and the ever so constant bass. Thom's vocals sound restrained, covered with a filter of distortion. Saxophones and horns join the song, each playing a viable groove in their own sense, but sounding mad with all of them playing at once. The craziness subsides again and spirals into the beautiful How To Disappear Completely, the most human song of the album, not only from the clear vocals and acoustic guitar, but from the painful lyrics as well. The interlude Treefingers is our reminder that this is an electronic album, and gives us a good halfway point through the album. Optimistic kicks off the second half of the album, becoming apparent that this most resembles a "rock song," and is a great one at that. The soaring oohs of the background vocals compliments the groovy tom toms, and the song once again becomes massive and crazy, ending on a final D chord, but then going straight into a pure groove, with incredible sounding drums guitar and bass that leads straight into In Limbo which moves the album right along. Idioteque is probably the first EDM track I really loved, as it blends the classic Radiohead style with looped drum machines and synths. Maybe the lowest point on the album, Morning Bell, is still a great mix of subtly and confusion with its 5/4 time and odd chord progression. Finally, Motion Picture Soundtrack may be the most beautiful album closer of all time, as its vocal melody and organ harmony to transcend the listener to heaven.(First added to this chart: 08/31/2016)

Great picks from the last decade. Very well done
Fantastic chart! I'm pretty much a fan of all the artists featured on your chart
Niiice. Your top 20 are really similar to mine.
Definitely a great 21st century chart. Love to see all 3 Saturations, Deafheaven so high and 3 Gizzard albums! My favourite is Polygondwanaland though, listen to that one if you haven't already.
interesting and very personal chart .... it is wired to see some current albums of 2018 dominating.... the year is not over yet
decent chart but i dont believe that 86% of the greatest albums ever where made in the past eighteen years so theres alot that you can still discover
Some really nice picks here, and with a bit of tweaks would make a great Best of the '10s chart. I normally don't mind a slant towards more modern stuff (I am a young-un' myself) but I feel in this chart it's gotten a little out of hand - Arcade Fire are one of my favourite bands ever but to say their third best release is better than the everything that happened in the decades before the 90s is a little much. I get the feeling from four of your five 70s picks being Pink Floyd that there's a couple more 20th century gems for you to discover; if you want records that sound ahead of their time maybe try Amon Duul II's Yeti, Television's Marquee Moon and Faust's IV?
Great chart! :)
