Editors’ Notes

If OK Computer turned Radiohead from Britpop contenders into alt-rock royalty, Kid A anointed them kings of the post-rock era—masters of making experimental music you could still sing along to. Incorporating strings, synthesizers, drum machines, and samples of 20th-century classical music, the band applied electronica's sound-shaping to their knotty songwriting and came up with an awe-inspiring hybrid that melted hearts and minds equally.

What happened to the other reviews?

This used to have so many more.
Anyway, nothing I could say about this album would do it justice. Just give it a listen. It's easily the greatest record of our generation.

One of the greatest albums of all time

I love this album to death, it is that good. It's not THE greatest album of all time but it's really up there along with OK Computer, another Radiohead album released in 1997. A true 10/10 album.

Biography

Formed: 1989 in Oxford, England

Genre: Alternative

Years Active: '90s, '00s, '10s

Radiohead were one of the few alternative bands of the early '90s to draw heavily from the grandiose arena rock that characterized U2's early albums. But the band internalized that epic sweep, turning it inside out to tell tortured, twisted tales of angst and alienation. Vocalist Thom Yorke's pained lyrics were brought to life by the group's three-guitar attack, which relied on texture — borrowing as much from My Bloody Valentine and Pink Floyd as R.E.M. and Pixies — instead of virtuosity....
