Amnesiac - Flying Out

RADIOHEAD

Amnesiac

Independent

$54.95
Faced with a deliberately difficult deviation into "experimentation," Radiohead and their record label promoted Kid A as just that -- a brave experiment, and that the next album, which was just around the corner, really, would be the "real" record, the one to satiate fans lookingforthe next OK Computer, or at least guitars. At the time, people bought the myth, especially since live Favouriteslike "Knives Out" and "You and Whose Army?" were nowhere to be seen on Kid A. That, however, ignores a salient point - Amnesiac, as the album came to be known, consists of recordings made during the Kid A sessions, so it essentially sounds the same. Since Radiohead designed Kid A as a self-consciously epochal, genre-shattering record, the songs that didn't makethe cut were a little simpler, so it shouldn't be a surprise that Amnesiac playslike a streamlined version of Kid A, complete with blatant electronica moves and productionthat sacrifices songs for atmosphere. - AllMusic.com
