I'm pissed off they didn't call it Kid C. You know after all the average folks out there.

It's not the most overrated in music history but I think it's way overrated by Radiohead fans. I like it but it's not like there aren't artists out there creating electronic ambience that far surpasses this album. It wasn't anything new as many people would lead you to believe. Still I like it though.

Excellent start to the discussion. And a great perspective.

Using that thinking, I'd have called it Kid R. In honor of it's musically superior master: Kid Rock.

Anything recorded by Kid Rock, that's right, Kid Rock, is better than Kid A.

I'd have to agree with you on this, I love the album, but yes it is overrated.

i still like how the title track begins with him saying my name -

craig smith....

in that robot voice.
i love robot voices.

and it's miles better than the follow-up 'amnesiac'. imagine making a career altering shift on an album, only to follow that album with another album of the exact same shit - only the songs that weren't good enough for the first one.

so i guess my 2 defenses of kid A are as follows:
1) robot voice saying my name
2) amnesiac is worse

That's a viable defense.

But for anyone not named Craig Smith, it leaves option #2 out there all alone.

And when Amnesiac is the reason Kid A is great, well, let's not go there.

Honestly thought, what is it that makes you dislike "Kid A"? (directed at
