I think Idioteque and How to Disappear Completely are the two best songs on Kid A.
But how do you all feel about Morning Bell? It's also one of my favorites from that album.

No Doubt.

From the recent NME Interview:

Colin Greenwood:
"The experience of touring 'Hail To The Thief' before its release was a positive one for Radiohead. As a result of the audience reaction some tracks were dropped while others became instant fan favourites. Thom hopes the British audiences will be as honest as possible this time too.

Thom Yorke:
"It's going to be hit and miss," he confessed. "sometimes the only way you can tell where you're at with stuff is to play it for people. We hope that people will tell us what they think. If they think it's shite then we need to know that as well, really."


So much for the idea that RH "Do what they want and don't care what anyone thinks."

It simply isn't true.

I LOVE Idioteque. The live versions I've heard are fantastic. Lots of fans love it so I don't know where you get the idea that people don't like it. It's also one of HeartlandGirl's favorites if memory serves me well.

I love Morning Bell, too.

I'm telling you, I love the whole damn record beginning to end. Some of the songs I like better live than the studio versions but I don't skip anything on Kid A. It's completely satisfying to me.

I think it's not to like Kid A.

You can be done now, since you responded to my post.

Anyway, Kid A can be baffling. Depending on the day and the mood I'm in, it's the best album released this century......and other times it might not crack my top 10.

I bet you're joking


I like Kid A, but I can easily understand why some wouldn't like it (in fact I have lots of friends and family members who think that I am because I like it ).

Only half joking. I can see why it isn't a RH fan's favorite RH record (though it is easily mine); but I honestly don't get why some fans hate it. I am completely perplexed by it, in fact.

Indeed it is.

I have no clue what this thread is about.

Hi joyful!
You see what I have to resort to when you're not around? I have to drop your name to support my arguments.

Optimistic is by far the best song on Kid A.

As long as 'Treefingers' is on that record, the above statement is going to be false.
