Annoyingly Radiohead produce yet another stupidly brilliant, innovative and interesting album. Not only is it interesting as it is peppered with moments of true beauty and genius.

Much like Kid A, this is an album which is pretty much removed from mainstream rock music, using plenty of synthesised sounds in a way that sometimes sounds more like modern erudite music rather than the band responsible for Creep.

So they fail to disappoint again. They just keep on making their music more interesting, noticing all the details in this album is an almost impossible task but you'll have great fun trying to do it.

From Wikipedia:

Both Amnesiac and Radiohead's album Kid A, which was released eight months earlier in 2000, were recorded in the same period. Most songs on Amnesiac were recorded during the same recording sessions that produced Kid A ("Life in a Glasshouse", however, was recorded with the band of jazz trumpeter Humphrey Lyttelton in late 2000, after the release of Kid A). This has led some to refer to Amnesiac as a "b-sides" album or as "Kid B", although the band has said the two albums should be considered separately, as "twins separated at birth." Amnesiac also includes a different version of "Morning Bell", a song from Kid A.
