Happy Birthday Kid A

It was 11 years ago today that Radiohead released their 4th studio album Kid A.  It was originally released on October 2nd, 2000.  This is the album where the bands sounds changed drastically from their previous albums.  I can still remember listening to this album when it first came out.

Kid A has been considered one of the most challenging pop records to have commercial success.  The album won a Grammy for Best Alternative Album and was nominated for Album of the Year. It also received praise for introducing listeners to diverse forms of underground music.   Despite the band’s new direction alienating some fans and critics,  Kid A received generally positive reviews from notable music publications.   It was subsequently listed by multiple publications as one of the best albums of recent years, and in 2009 was ranked No. 1 in lists of the best albums of the 2000s by Pitchfork, Rolling Stone, and The Times.
