5 stars "Kid A", who came out 3 years after "OK Computer", continues the evolution that began on Radiohead's music - from "Pablo Honey", which was on the shadow of the huge success of "Creep", and some people thought Radiohead might be a "one hit wonder". the musical evolution proved them wrong.

The album gives a point of view on a lonely, sad world. It was written on Radiohead's "OK Computer" tour, which is ironic - when those were Radiohead's glory years, but you can say big stardom comes with big depression...

The songs that are on the album, monotonic but well produced, expressed a new revolutinary sound, with the touch of electronic music (which is symbolic, when their first album of the new millenium is the first who is fully under the influence of electronic music).

My favorite tracks are two - first, there's "Everything In It's Right Place" - in my opinion, the best song written in the 21st century, because it's expressing a feeling of loneliness in the best way. The second is "Idioteque", which gives the full picture of the album, monotonic but well produced.

As i follow Radiohead's career, this is by far the best album i ever witnessed to hear from them, so 5 stars are just in place. It is depressing but touching at the same time, and that's why i was so connected to the wave that comes out from this album.

Open-Mind | 5/5 |
