Brent DiCrescenzo’s original Kid A review on pitchfork.com:
This is an emotional, psychological experience. Kid A sounds like a clouded brain trying to recall an alien abduction. It’s the sound of a band, and its leader, losing faith in themselves, destroying themselves, and subsequently rebuilding a perfect entity. In other words, Radiohead hated being Radiohead, but ended up with the most ideal, natural Radiohead record yet.
Some things are not always true. Some people are more in-tune with what will become truth. Time is the only tool that separate the fakes from those with a gifted intuition.
