5 stars One of the top ten records of the last 10 years, it showed that Radiohead was capable of anything after their magnificient opus O.K Computer (1997). According to the band, the record wasn't intended to include songs as we know them, instead, they tried to expand into new sounds and atmospheres influenced among others by electronica musicians such as Brian Eno, Aphex Twin and Paul Lansky and German Krautrock in the form of Can, Faust, Neu! and Kraftwek.

Most of the lyrics are short and straight, but good enough to get along with the marvelous eerie-sad mood of the album. Nine months after Kid A (october, 2000) got to the stores a new record came out: Amnesiac (June, 2001), wich was recorded during the same sessions. Kid A represents the high status this english combo had reached as art rockers and it was a challenge for the fans and the critics as well. The Pablo Honey days were gone, this was a completeley brand new band that luckily tends to forget the past and makes music for the present from their particular point of view. 5/5

Favorite Trax: "How to Dissapear Completely", "Idioteque", "Kid A", "Morning Bell" and "Treefingers".

Pascual | 5/5 |
