Written on: 04/02/2010

i first heard this in 2004 and though "well, it OK but nothing ground breaking"

however i have returned to it again recently and been amazed by how fresh and beautiful it is!! although some of the tunes have no lyrics it certainly can't be faulted for complexity, technical ability and zest

some of the tunes and songs are so sad yet they have an incredible ability to touch the heart!

Completely different. More thought provoking and deeper album than any other they have released. People complain there isn't enough rock on it but i think it's brilliant… Read Full Review

“Yes, Kid A was an experiment and yes, maybe it could...”

Written on: 19/04/2007 by Cognition (90 reviews written)

Yes, Kid A was an experiment and yes, maybe it could have been more successful but people often forget about the truely great tracks that are on this album. I'm talking about "How to Disappear Completely" and "Motion Picture Soundtrack" - these are brilliant songs.

Thom Yorke himself described track 4, How to Disappear Completely, as "the most beautiful track we ever made" - and I can agree with this - even though it's a dark kind of beautiful.

Kid A has a few moments that just don't work… Read Full Review

“I can and will compare Kid A by Radiohead to Sgt....”

Written on: 07/04/2005 by Nathan Urie (1 review written)

I can and will compare Kid A by Radiohead to Sgt. Pepper by the Beatles. KID A is a musical marvel that has not only revolutionized how music is but it has once again showed that there are more rooms to play around in, just like Sgt. Pepper. Every song is different so boredom is not in play. Life altering, sophisticated and spacey. Radiohead is one of the few bands that have successfully broken the fabric of the universe. If you don't "get" music, you will not like this… Read Full Review

“I've read several reviews of Kid A and I have to say...”

Written on: 07/02/2003 by Jake. (1 review written)

I've read several reviews of Kid A and I have to say that none of them accurately capture the essence of this album, specifically that it's absolutely awful, unlistenable crud. Call it "prog-rock" or "electronica" or what you want, it's pretentious nonsense. Kid A is not the future of rock, it's an experiment that should've never made it out of the lab. It's destiny is alongside Bonnie Raitt albums in bargain bins and used CD shops. Save your money… Read Full Review

Marshall's Response to 71356_Jake.'s Review

Written on: 23/09/2003

Jake, your opinion of Kid A is completely wrong and reflects your overall ignorance of music in general. I find your thoughtless bashing of the album both offensive and disgusting. The thing that is crude is not the beautifully woven melodies of Kid A demonstrated in the Pyramid song and Knives out, but it is in fact you're views on the quality of music. The only difference between Kid A and the previous Radiohead albums is that it requires more than a picosecond of an attention span. Obviously, an attention span is something you lack. You probably listened to the album for about three seconds before you made your judgement. I suggest you reevaluate what "good" music is and take a second listen to Kid A.

It's not "crud", it's just strange, and it's very different. At least it's not like all the common dross that modern artists (with a few exceptions) are getting paid millions to destroy our culture with.

Written on: 16/04/2006

Jake you were right. I bought this garbage and felt so gutted I found this site to see if others were equally as bored. I actually listened to it all! I want that wasted time back. What an absolute collapse from a good band.
One dimensional, pretentious and alarmingly lacking in feeling in comparison to previously well thought out, and structured sound. An awful mistake. I suppose we all live and learn.

“I remember the good old days, driving in my car...”

Written on: 13/11/2002 by Forkie. (1 review written)

I remember the good old days, driving in my car singing my heart out to the likes of Creep, You, Blow out, Just, The Bends etc etc. Now all I can do is wallow in self pity and depression as I listen to the drones and whines of Kid A and Amnesiac. What has happened to this band? Where is there energy? Deep and meaningful anecdotes and riddles in the CD cover are fine if they mean anything to anyone but the band. Kid A is a big step down to what Radiohead really are. A rock band that used to… Read Full Review

“I had never even seen a shooting star before. 25 years...”

Written on: 23/11/2001 by peter. (1 review written)

I had never even seen a shooting star before. 25 years of rotations, passes through comets' paths, and travel, and to my memory I had never witnessed burning debris scratch across the night sky. Radiohead were hunched over their instruments. Thom Yorke slowly beat on a grand piano, singing, eyes closed, into his microphone like he was trying to kiss around a big nose. Colin Greenwood tapped patiently on a double bass, waiting for his cue. White pearls of arena light swam over their faces. A… Read Full Review

Written on: 12/12/2002

I completely disagree with you.
Kid A does not match up to any Radiohead's previous albums. Gone are the glorious guitar riffs for some wierd and far from wonderful grinding studio sound effects.
They may well sound like they have been abducted by aliens, but who, except for the mentally insane, will listen to this when trying to relax?
You cannot feel this music. It is not anything anyone can realistically relate to; unless of course you have been abducted by aliens! Music is emotion, yes, but only something people can relate to. Radiohead-what have you done?

Written on: 02/08/2003

why does every body who listens to this album have to compare it to the bends or ok computer...or stuff that radiohead wrote earlier. does nobody understand that bands develop and develop new ideas...just because kid A isn't creep or high and dry all the way through doesn't mean it's not a good album. and why do you assume that you have to listen to Kid A whilst you're relaxing? if you didn't like it when you were relaxing did it not occur tha you might like to listen to it at onther time???
<br>Just one point to take from this, radiohead have developed as a band...if you've been following from 'on a friday' you'd understand, they've changed, but just cos it's different doean't mean it's rubbish...accept
