* 2×10″ Gatefold Edition, Reissue

Description (English):
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 looking for the next OK Computer, or at least guitars. At the time, people bought the myth, especially since live favorites like “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 make the cut were a little simpler, so it shouldn’t be a surprise that Amnesiac plays like a streamlined version of Kid A, complete with blatant electronica moves and production that sacrifices songs for atmosphere.
