At a time when music is still struggling to extricate itself from a rut, and visionaries remain conspicuous by their absence, 'Alone With Everybody' remains a beacon of light.

They have found a way to reconcile man and machine – by taking control of the devices at hand and making something truly beautiful, mysterious and timeless.

Radiohead - Kid A
October 2, 2000
Critic Score

13 reviews

For all its feats of brinkmanship, the patently magnificent construct called 'Kid A' betrays a band playing one-handed just to prove they can, scared to commit itself emotionally.

Queens of the Stone Age - Rated R
June 6, 2000
Critic Score
85
8 reviews

A heady mix of speed-addled punk rock, huge, sky-filling psychedelic majesty and sex-crazed black humour. For fans of Kyuss, this is his best album since 'Welcome To Sky Valley', for everyone else, it's just the best, most important rock album for years.
