Radiohead: Kid A

Lid A

Lid AThis has to be one of the most overrated albums of all time. It’s ”brilliant” the way an episode of Punk’d is brilliant. I’d honestly rather listen to a hamster running on its wheel for an hour. Did Thom York have nodules when they recorded this thing, or was he just like ”don’t worry about the singer, guys, I’m cool just hanging out in the corner pretending there was never a song entitled ‘Creep.’ I know I was stealing too much of the spotlight, so why don’t you guys just turn on the reverb machines and noodle away for a while sotto voce.” Maybe I’ll come to my senses several years from now and realize what an amazing album this is, but those odds are longer than Aqua having another hit in their lifetimes.
