This isn’t a post about rhesus for a change, it’s more of a fan post.

As you probably know I’m a Radiohead fan. A BIG Radiohead fan.

I class them as one of, if not the, best British bands of all time.

Only one thing bugs me about their album releases, and that’s Kid A and Amnesiac.

Don’t get me wrong, I love both albums, but I feel they would have been better released as ONE album (which was originally the idea, [both albums were recorded in one session and the band in the end thought they had enough good tracks to warrant two releases.] I don’t.)

I think they’re both great albums, but not incredible albums. Though Kid A in particular had potential to be incredible, but certain tracks like Treefingers just don’t cut it for me.

If Radiohead HAD gone for the one album release (we’ll call it Kid B), I believe, with the right track selection, they could have had an album with as much impact as Ok Computer. Here’s my selection for Kid B:

  1. “Everything in Its Right Place” – 4:11
  2. Pyramid Song” – 4:49
  3. “Packt Like Sardines in a Crushd Tin Box” – 4:00
  4. “The National Anthem” – 5:51
  5. “I Might Be Wrong” – 4:54
  6. “Knives Out” – 4:15
  7. “Optimistic” – 5:16
  8. “Idioteque” – 5:09
  9. “Like Spinning Plates” – 3:57
  10. “Morning Bell” – 4:35 (KID A VERSION)
  11. “Motion Picture Soundtrack” – 7:01
  12. “Life in a Glasshouse” – 4:34

    Your list is shite! Where the hell’s “Kid A” or “How To Disappear Competely”!? Didn’t like those either, eh?

  • Rich Says:

    To be fair Thom, with only 12 tracks you can’t fit everything on, and personally, I don’t think Kid A or How to Disappear completely are better songs than any on my list (hence leaving them out!) – they’d make good B sides though 😛

    I have been looking looking around for this kind of information. Will you post some more in future? I’ll be grateful if you will.

    I included some of my favorite b sides from this era. It kind of goes from guitar heavy to electronic.

  • dachtyla dentro Says:

    Treefingers is such an important part of Kid A. Treefingers is as important to the Kid A experience as “Everything in Its Right Place”, “The National Anthem” and “Motion Picture Soundtrack”. If you don’t like Treefingers, I don’t get how you can like Kid A at all.
