4 stars It actually took me quite a while to get into Radiohead. I thought it was just weird stoner music, but after borrowing In Rainbows from a friend, I decided to check out their entire catalog. Kid A is possibly the strangest disc in their discography, but it is definitely my favorite with In Rainbows (I can't really compare the two to say which one is better). Everything in its Right Place has to be the coolest electronic song ever written. Then Kid A comes along, and I wonder at how they made a nursery song synth tone drive such an awesome song. I still have never heard another song like Kid A from any band. The one track that I have tried to like over and over again is The National Anthem. I just hate the bassline; it is downright annoying. It sounds like a tone-deaf stoner trying to play bass. The song is too long, as well. How To Disappear Completely is just a gorgeously sad song. I like the next three tracks a a lot, but once the record hits Idioteque, the album becomes sublime. Morning Bell follows, a great track that was sadly redone in a poor way on the inconsistent Amnesiac, an album I think people knock more than they should. Motion Picture Soundtrack is the perfect, blissfully beautiful ending to this blissfully beautiful album.
