you guyz are crazy, this whole thing is madness I tell you. MADNESS!!

still, I'll play along:

1. Everything in Its Right Place vs. Packt Like Sardines in a Crushd Tin Box

Winner: Everything In Its Right Place

2. Kid A vs. Pyramid Song

Winner: Pyramid Song

3. The National Anthem vs. Pulk/Pull Revolving Doors

Winner: The National Anthem

4. How to Disappear Completely vs. You and Whose Army

Winner: How to Disappear Completely

5. Treefingers vs. Like Spinning Plates

Winner: Like Spinning Plates

6. Optimistic vs. Knives Out

Winner: Optimistic

7. In Limbo vs. Dollars and Cents

Winner: In Limbo

8. Idioteque vs. I Might Be Wrong

Winner: I Might Be Wrong

9. Morning Bell vs. Morning Bell/Amnesiac

Winner: Morning Bell

10. Motion Picture Soundtrack vs. Life in a Glass House

Winner: Motion Picture Soundtrack

Kid A: 7
Amnesiac: 3

These type of comparisons don't work IMO because when you stack them up song vs song Kid A wins yet I enjoy Amnesiac more as a complete album...

that's what i read into it anyway.

it's been said by ed, and i'm quite certain on frequent occassions no less, that some of the songs that ended up on amnesiac simply didn't "fit" into the mould of kid a.

i guess i'm just being overprotective of amnesiac. in my mind it's too often overlooked as being nothing more than kid a leftovers, as if it's almost a b-sides project.
Exactly, they're just in a different mood compared to Kid A. If Kid A / Amnesiac were released as one double album, it would've been Radiohead's magnum opus.
