3 stars This was announced as a revolution.

Well, it was not. Not at all. People got so hyped up on Ok Computer in the dayz, it was crazy. Even my grandma had this album for crying out loud. With expectations has high, Kid A fell flat on his back, leaving Radiohead fans with a choice: love it or hate it.

Many of us, including me, were speechless (by hate) hearing this the first time. It was Radiohead first genuine 'progressive' attempt. And many bands like Sigur Ros or even OSI inspired them from this album. I wasn't ready for a drastic change of pace like this one: electro style, tormented singing, programming bonanza, insane atmosphere. But now, I do understand that they flew too high and they decided to sabotage their reputation themselves before the media, like Pearl Jam did for instance.

A somewhat difficult album to get around, getting more and more asylum bordeline. Yorke is showing signs of schizo problems (in my opinion), and the results are relevant: this is different. Radiohead got so much weirder with that album, leaving me with a stagnant aftertaste of clautrophobia mixed with mental illness. Hard to describe, so just listen to it.

Listen before buying.
