Why Kid A Is The Best Album To Come Out Of Radiohead

Everything In Its Right Place

The song begins with an attempt to convince our own self that “Everything is in its right place”. A situation when you have made peace with everything around you, using disillusionment or ideals.  A stage when the voices in your head are too different from the ones outside and you end up missing out on both. But you try and you remember that everything is okay.

Kid A

You are standing in a big bunch where everyone is holding onto each other, and the adhering power of fear is keeping them together. They are together, all united. We somewhere relate it with the idea of pragmatic nationality, a passive jingoism, and a societal brotherhood.

The National Anthem

You are standing in a big bunch where everyone is holding onto each other, and the adhering power of fear is keeping them together. They are together, all united. I somewhere relate it with the idea of pragmatic nationality, a passive jingoism, and a societal brotherhood.

How To Disappear Completely

Ever felt like simply disappearing, like a wind, or a moment, or a sound, or just like a thought? Or perhaps just disappear like a celebration or a tragedy, leaving your everlasting trail behind. This song is all about it.

Treefingers

The music is simply enchanting, progressing through higher vibrations, notes emerging out of one another, and you keep penetrating through the thin layers of your consciousness.

Optimistic

Where on one side you sense a natural cycle of events, on the other you see the greed that causes this natural cycle. Then you realize or wonder whether every single act has a source in greed or is rooted in exploitative satisfaction. But you are ‘optimistic’ for the very nature that your pessimism couldn’t stop the whole movement. The way this song ends at such an abrupt note is a mere dissection of a certain point from an endless and inevitable cycle.  

In Limbo

Can you decode an answer for your questions or can you feel that eternity of getting lost without any tiniest source of help, lost as a tiny speckle in a vast sea? You are perhaps living in your fantasy. 

Idioteque

With electronic effects in the music and technical approaches in lyrics, this song appears to be aiming at technology, the approaching end of the world, the uncontrollable acts of humans and yet-to-be-revealed consequences.

Morning Bell

When the darkness engulf you to the extent till the light of dawn is just not enough, when you feel so stuck that nothing could help you, when your thoughts drift back to old violent days or actions that brought you here, then listen to this song and you will have a company. 

Motion Picture Soundtrack

Pleasant and depressing- things change, people change, circumstances and eventually lives change. When you have given up on something that used to be beautiful, you can only wish for it to be good in the next life. “I will see you in the next life”.

All else is a lie, every attempt (for better things), every hope (for previous things) and each and every exchange of word (spoken or hidden). Listen to the album below.
