This is an "unappreciation" thread.

You can start you're own "appreciation" thread.

Sure Kid A has some clunkers, but as an album, it flows very well, and sounds brilliantly

part of being an artist is being able to reinvent oneself to regain artistic creativity and originality

Thom Yorke sure as hell isn't writing songs for the fans who only listen to "creep" and "paranoid android" on repeat, so he will write whatever he want, and his style will reflect that

Artists have the right to experiment, and if you give Kid A some ample listening time, you will find it is a spectacular album
you're making sense, lots of good points. and then....
you totally fucking lost me. thom yorke and the whole band should make whatever they want. and if kid A is it, then so be it. i'm not offended. i just don't like it.
trust me, buddy. i got my grubby little hands on kid A the moment it was released, and have given it plenty of listens. the verdict: i don't like it. and that's a fact. there are moments on it, and i'll take it WAY before the monstrosity that was amnesiac. but after ample listens, it just doesn't do for me what it does for you. and the clunkers are exactly what keep it from flowing. not a clunker on 'the bends' or 'ok computer'. and from your post, even you feel that there are more than 1 clunkers on kid A. how can an album with >1 clunker be better than an album with none.

thats unpossible.

But that would just be a spin-off thread and the mods would get all cranky.

The bends has plenty of clunkers "Bones", "Nice dream", and "sulk" Kid A just has "in limbo

Kid A flows better than most Radiohead albums

My thread is about disliking Kid A.

If reading it has has reignited your passion for liking Kid A, you should be able to start you're own appreciation thread.

In Limbo is a clunker? I couldn't imagine Kid A without it! The perfect companion for Optimistic.

There are plenty of other people in this thread who are appreciating Kid A. Why don't you pick on them instead?

Plenty of people don't like this record.

And they've posted here.

again, we diverge. you just named 3 of my favorite songs on 'the bends'.
i'll respect your opinion. i don't put that much stock in 'flow'. what the fuck does that mean anyway. passengers 'flows' better than every u2 album. sure as shit ain't my favorite.
and i would argue that a major component of the 'flow' on kid A and amnesiac is a product of the technology and production, not superior songwriting. spiritualized do this all the time - where you have a constant synth note or tone playing through the whole record to tie things together ('electric mainline'). i love shit like that, don't get me wrong. but they didn't do that on ok computer or the bends, and i think that those albums fit together awfully well.

The only thing this forum likes more than Radiohead is bitching, and this thread proves that you can't combine the two with any success.
