2000 Album Reissued On 12" 180g Vinyl Double EP!
Rolling Stone 500 Greatest Albums of All Time - Rated 67/500! Best Alternative
Album Grammy Winner!
The band's ambitious 2000 release delves deeply into full-on electronica.
Intricately layered with dense mixes of analog synth; this album rewards
listeners with multiple spins.
With the near impossible task of following up their critically acclaimed
masterpiece OK Computer, Radiohead took another bold leap at the turn of the
millennium with Kid A, an experimental album built largely around the union of
electronica and mood. Musically, Kid A is as accomplished as anything Radiohead
has ever produced and its overflowing with eye-opening musical mosaics which are
absolutely stunning in their insight and beauty. Kid A initally proved to be
controversial as critics labeled the mixture of electronic beats, jazz horns and
strings as "difficult" but tracks like the soaring "Optimistic" kept fans loyal
and saw Radiohead crowned as masters of composition. A left-field hit, Kid A was
eventually nominated for a Grammy for Album of the Year and won for Best
"Kid A remains the defining moment in the Radiohead legend, and the pinnacle
of their trying-too-hard genius. It looms over everything else they've done
before or since. "Idioteque," "How to Disappear Completely," "The National
Anthem," "Motion Picture Soundtrack" — these are the songs that set the context
for Radiohead's other music, even (especially?) the songs they'd already written
in the Nineties. It's safe to say that OK Computer and The Bends, great as they
are, remain so famous today chiefly because they were made by the guys who went
on to make Kid A." - rollingstone.com, October 2015
