Kid A is an album album. Talk of 'best song' on it is superfluous and quite beside the point, and will get you lined up against a wall come the revolution.

The title track is awesome.

Just to confirm this, my favorite on the album is In Limbo.

Nine posts, barely any agreement on what the best track is.

When I read Kieran's post I wanted to post something along the lines of: there are definitely a few stand-outs like... But then I'd named more than half of the album. So yeah, it's an amazing album.

Amnesiac has more standout songs, even if the lows are lower.

Meh, call it whatever you like, I just don't enjoy listening to it. Maybe it is a "right place, right time" album that would have blown my mind if I had heard it when it first came out, but it just doesn't click with me.

I've been running OK Computer, Bends, and In Rainbows (which I like quite a bit) a lot this week, all of which I find to be significantly better listens than Kid A.

You should give it at least a few tries. It's less accesible than the albums you mentioned but it's very rewarding once it clicks. It was for me anyway.

I don't know what you have and haven't listened to but the above is especially true if you're not into electronic music. For many people, myself included, Kid A was a gateway album to more experimental electronic music. Once I "got" Kid A, my musicals tastes widened quite a bit and I started enjoying more kinds of awesome music.

Re: the thread title - Radiohead are a poor man's Pink Floyd, and would have never been this successful if the 70s era Floyd existed in 1997.

I don't revisit KID A all that often, but when i do, it's a pretty captivating 40 minutes or so.

I might actually prefer Amnesiac's Morning Bell over the Kid A version, which can be a little uncomfortable on the ear, but it's all worth it once Motion Picture Soundtrack kicks in.

Can't wait for their next album!

Another one - in 2015, The Beatles are only interesting as a historical curiosity to examine how pop music was made then.
