Well how about this. We all know Kid A is perfect beauty. But lets try not to put a death grip on Brau's thread.

Kid A Problems:

Lyrics can be alittle screwy. Thom had to choose some out of a hat.

In my opinion it should have been a double disc with Amnisiac.

Ahh, I knew this was coming. It's part of the ultimate "charm" of the newer RH fan.

Those who don't like the record are "morons" who simply lack the brains to comprehend it.

Oh. Well then. Sorry, I didnt get that far in "Radiohead for Dummies".

Well thanks for the clarifcation. Here we go:

You obviously dont get it. I dont know whether it is because you are just idotic or have enough wax in your ears to be able to produce candles like a 1690s puritian.

Speaking of 1690's puratins, would I be out of line suggesting a public burning/stoning of those who dont appricate the word of the lord, I.E. Kid A?

That's what I'm talking about

Everybody who's anybody in B&C knows Kid A is my favorite Radiohead record.

Poor Brau, just doesn't get it.

Kid A is the equivlant of Nick McCabe cutting his fingers off, right before he recorded "A New Decade."

LOL!

pish posh...
what have you been listening to?
plenty of GREAT shit has been around since kid A. here's just one example:

broken social scene - you forgot it in people is an album deserving of such accolades. it's ambient, rocking, inventive, and familiar. and it was released 2003. a nice balance between ambience/artsiness/artfulness/melody/classic pop/inventiveness.
i'm glad you like kid A so much. everyone should have a few records that they keep on such a pedastal. i certainly do. but i'll argue with your factually stated opinion till the cows or the monsters from kid a's artwork come home.

Yeah, I've heard You Forgot It In People. Great record. In my opinion. Capture The Flag is one of the greatest album openers I've ever heard in recent times. Almost Crimes, Stars And Sons, and Cause=Time...all great songs. In my opinion. Perfect drums and bass. In my opinion. Pacific Theme is one of my favourite instrumentals by any group over the last six years.

That said, I still think Kid A's better. You Forgot It In People - IN MY OPINION, since that little phrase is oh so important - doesn't quite touch the soundscapes that Radiohead produced with Kid A. Argue with me all you want, I can go for hours.

I think BSC are slightly over-rated. I want to like them, maybe I should given them more time. They 'aint Radiohead...noooooo. Or The Arcade Fire, for that matter.

This is true. How To Dismantle An Atomic Bomb is better than Kid A.

But that's not saying much.

Name an album released from June 2000 until now.

Every album you name (except fo Amnesiac) is better than Kid A.

Amnesiac has the fine distinction of being the one record released since June 2000 that's actually worse than Kid A.

Try it. It works.

Use Metal, Rock, Pop, Country, Top 40, Folk, Blues, Jazz, Comedy, Spoken Word, World Music, Salsa, Indie, Dance.

The background music from the CD laser lens cleaner I bought back in 2002 is better.

I've owned 3 copies of Kid A.

One was purchased when the album was released.

2 weeks later it was sold to a used CD shop.

Used the money to buy a used porno magazine.

The 2nd was a mini disc copy that I made from my old room-mates copy of Kid A. Thought I'd give it another shot. That lasted 3 weeks, until i need to blank out the MD to record my farts after a weekend of my girlfriends chili. (surprisingly, the recorded farts weren't that different than the music that occupied the MD before)

The 3rd was burned from a data disc of my brothers music collection. It has been loaded into my ITunes for 4 months now. But, predictably enough, those little blue boxes next to each track have slowly been clicked off, one by one.
