Radiohead – Kid A

I promised myself I wouldn’t post “classic” albums, I know, but as I started playing this on my iPod, I felt a sudden urge to post it here, so I think it’d be unfair not to post it.

The follow-up to the album many claim to be “Best album from the 90’s” (OK Computer) is as far apart from its predecessor as it could be. Kid A has a much more electronic feel than OK Computer, very little guitar’s present in this album. Most fans didn’t welcome it at first, because of it being so different, but time put this album right where it belonged.

Amazon.com’s Best of 2000
How is it that Kid A‘s opening track, laden with an electronic vocal stuttering “bleh, bluh-bleh bleh bluh” is the most fascinating statement made in rock & roll this year? Because somehow, even when Radiohead blathers and blips nonsense, it’s profound. The band’s future-perfect musical grammar may be hard to decipher, and the melody is even more subliminal, but the journey traveled with Radiohead reveals them to be not only rock music’s greatest adventurers in 2000, but teachers as well. –Beth Massa
