Kid A is still Radiohead's most challenging album and the furthest they've headed into electronic textures but it's all the better for it. The band channelled the sounds they were hearing on records by the likes of Autechre and applied them to their own sound. Such a different beast from OK Computer but a very innovative and important record.

8/10 Penrith Steve Customer review, 21st February 2015

I think I should be honest and say that I'm not a Radiohead fan. I don't like Thom Yorke's voice and I don't much care for anything they did up to this point. I found their songs fairly boring and pretentious. And I don't particularly care for their, or probably Thom Yorke's, views on the record industry after they've made millions from it. They do seem like very nice fellas when I see/hear them interviewed though.

"Kid A" is different. It's massively experimental, dynamic and entirely different from anything they'd done. I don't think it's necessarily completely original as The Flaming Lips and Air had maid moves in this direction prior to Radiohead and it does hoover up a lot of the sounds that were around at the time. "Everything In The Right Place" is reminiscent of the general sound of "Moon Safari" by Air and the title track is a nice piece of ambience that leads really well into the album highlight "The National Anthem". "Optimistic" is a bit too Radiohead for my tastes and "Morning Bell", "Idioteque" and "In Limbo" could do without that VOICE! I really think some Radiohead stuff would be improved if they were instrumentals. I think this might be a 9 or a 10 if it wasn't for the singing, but I know there are many, many people who'll disagree with me. What do I know?
