Radiohead - Kid A 2LP
Kid A is the fourth studio album by the English rock band Radiohead, released on 2 October 2000 by Parlophone. Burnt out after promoting Radiohead's acclaimed 1997 album OK Computer, songwriter Thom Yorke envisioned a radical change in direction. Incorporating influences from genres such as krautrock, jazz, 20th-century classical music, electronic music of Warp artists, Radiohead replaced their guitars with synthesisers, drum machines, the ondes Martenot, string orchestras and brass instruments. They recorded Kid A with OK Computer producer Nigel Godrich in Paris, Copenhagen, Gloucestershire and their hometown Oxford, England. The sessions produced over 20 finished tracks; Radiohead saved many of them for their subsequent album, Amnesiac, released the following year.
Radiohead did not release singles or music videos to promote the album; instead, short animated films were set to its music based on the artwork Stanley Donwood and Yorke designed for the album's packaging. Kid A debuted at the top of the charts in Britain (where it went platinum in the first week), and for the first time in Radiohead's history, in the United States. Its commercial success has been attributed to its unique marketing campaign, an internet leak and anticipation following OK Computer.
Kid A initially divided critics, surprised by Radiohead's new sound, but many publications named it one of the best albums of 2000. Like its predecessor OK Computer, it won a Grammy for Best Alternative Album and was nominated for Album of the Year. At the turn of the decade, Rolling Stone, Pitchfork and the Times ranked Kid A the greatest album of the 2000s, and in 2012, Rolling Stone ranked Kid A number 67 on its list of the 500 greatest albums of all time.
