The thing about this album though is that, strong as the songs are separately, they're nothing without one another. For instance, EITRP is kind of weak sauce without Kid A following it up.
Your first paragraph is right on.

Your second paragraph not so much for me. EIIRP doesn't lose anything by not having Kid A after it, imo.

Agreed...Kid A is KID A

In Rainbows is fantastic, but I don't think its better than KID A

It's gonna happen Zoots. One day, you'll just be posting something somewhere not really paying attention to your tunes and Reckoner will start playing at random and you'll have that stop-typing-in-mid-sentence 'holy shit what is this playing, it's brilliant' moments. It'll hit you. I don't know when, but it will. You'll see.

It's close, but it's not. You're right.

But as a collection of songs, In Rainbows is better. Solely my opinion of course.

I can listen to songs from In Rainbows out of context more often than ones from Kid A.
Now THIS I agree with.

as an "album" I prefer Kid A

or Nude

Hell, even House of Cards beats Nude. No insult to House of Cards though, I'm beginning to see what it means.

Whatever disagreements I may have, I should save my energy for the Amnesiac draw. I have a feeling I'm going to be doing a lot of arguing against the current on that one.

I can just see the lot of you trying to vote off Life In A Glass House in the early rounds.

That's my favorite track off of Amnesiac. It's amazing.

It's still too early for me to call this one. Kid A is a masterpiece imo. But I've listened to something from IR every friggin day since I downloaded it and I haven't gotten tired of it yet. It is definitely a major record for me, one of those records that defines a whole season and corresponds with important events in my life. So in a sense, for me it's irrelevant which record is better since they both played a similar role.

Kid A is a masterwork, I love it to death. In Rainbows is helping me get through some shit right now, too. It's one of "those albums" for me now. Kid A, as great as it is, hasn't gotten to that level for me yet.
