Radiohead - Kid A (2000)

Radiohead-A-Palooza? Yeah, we'll go with that. And for our second installment we dive into their 2000 release, Kid A. After a bought of epic writer's block and deep depression, Thom Yorke emerges with a newfound love of rhythm and electronica. The rest of the gang follows suit, and after 3 years of writing and a full year of recording, Kid A is born, and in a way, so is Radiohead.
