Kid A is you. The point of the album is that the world is kinda shit but hey here's your very own album.

It's an album designed to make listeners feel like they are the center of the universe. It also paints a bleak universe. The idea was to foster a generation of socially conscious problem solvers and improve the American/British work force..

Kid A lmao

Kid A album:

>Influenced by the book No Logo by Naomi Klein
>"Kid A" stems from the random idea Thom had about the first human clone
>Kid A is up to your interpretation. There is no specific meaning. Just random names and ideas the band had.
>Most of the lyrics were pulled from a hat at random

>>61596131
This. It's a "Let's write a bunch of random bullshit and let people insert their meaing so they think we are so deep and in resonance with them" album. The lyrics are bullshit.

But oh man, the music is top tier.

>thinking the lyrics to Kid A are bullshit

Maybe if you isolate them from the music and expect it to be poetry by itself, but wow, **that's not how music works**

>the rats and children follow me out of town/c'mon kids
^is a brilliant lyric, and I won't bother to name more examples because the fact that Kid A's lyrics add hugely to the music is fucking obvious to everyone else who pays attention
>>
Kid A means Kid Amnesiac because Kid A is an infantile and immature album compared to Amnesiac
>>
>>61597809
Kid A and Amnesiac were recorded at the same time. In fact almost all tracks off Amnesiac are cut tracks from Kid A.

irrelevant, the albums are what they are

Kid A (the song) is a blatant ripoff of Aphex' Flim tbqhwy
>>
Everything In Its Right Place = There's peace in the world

Kid A = Birth of the atomic bomb

National Anthem = Nations go to war against eachother

How To Disappear Completely = The bombs explode

The rest of the songs are about the aftermath of nuclear war.

Finish the rest of the tracks, please
>>
i think they called amnesiac kid b before the name was revealed
>>
>>61599311
Treefingers = Nuclear winter

Optimistic = Signs of humanities recovery. Colonies emerge

In Limbo= Perpetual, unending bloodshed between rival clans for limited resources.

Idioteque= Man begins building another bomb

Somebody else finish it.

>>61602241
Morning Bell = after the second bomb is dropped, the surviving children emerge from the bunker to try and begin life anew through the remnants of the old world

Radiohead is a household name.
>>61597975
Except that when performing those lyrics and writing musical ideas with them in mind, the fact that lyrics will fit over a melody line or that the rhythmic phrasing will seem to fit the lyrics isn't coincidence. Whether intentional or not, songwriters do tend to try make their lyrics fit the composition. Even if they're nonsensical.
>>
>>61602506
Motion Picture Soundtrack = Instead of a Hollywood happy ending, the children try to piece back together their broken lives, without repeating the mistakes of the past.
>I will see you in the next life
