Except National Anthem and Idioteque live, right? Much as I love Kid A I have started to agree with what some have said about it being sort of neutered (maybe no one used that exact word) compared with what those songs could have been, and are, live. Except maybe How to Disappear which is pretty much perfect on the record and doesn't necessarily get better live, though I like it live.

Oh, but I agree that Amnesiac's singles are quite superb. Can't deny that. Plus, I've always had a thing for Packt Like Sardines.

live is a completely different animal... I'm just taliking studio versions here, but yes, I think the strongest single off of Kid A is How To Disappear...

There were no commercial singles released off of Kid A.

I'm just talking songs that stand out... if that makes any sense.

I Might Be Wrong, Pyramid Song, You And Whose Army? > anything on Kid A...
Everything in its right place, The National Anthem, How To Disappear Completely, Optimistic, Idioteque, Motion Picture Soundtrack > Every song on Amnesiac

Plus, Hunting Bears and the demo version of Morning Bell, while not bad, really break up the flow of the album.
Agree with you here on most points.

Knives Out is average at best, only enjoyable when watching the video for it.
Life IN A Glasshouse, nothing really magical about it.
Hunting Bears and Morning Bell don't add anything.....

But....

Pulk/Pull Revolving Doors is brilliant, Radiohead should've made more songs like this.

Like Spinning Plates (studio) is still downright awesome, live or not. It's just phenomenal.

This album should have has Kinetic and Fog on it....it really should've....oh it frsutrates me how good it could have been. Disappointing track selection by the Radioheaders.
