Radiohead - Amnesiac
Apr 17, 2017 (updated Oct 29, 2018)

"Having it been done at the same time(as KID A) it sort of fills in the blanks" and that's after naming the album amnesiac. amnesiac is the jiggsaw falling into place, the story of a Kid A all grown up and the little destruction's of that soundscape all grown up.

So yeah!, while this album is an afterthought of KID A, it is still undeniably beautiful.

There are broken songs here, which seem to function as interludes. However it is impossible to avoid this album as important because it has tracks such as Pyramid Song, I Might Be Wrong, Like Spinning Plates and its this era that introduced us to True Love Waits.

And with the slew of b-side gems this album has, it shows that this album is the favourite son. This entire album could have been a Kid-A b-side but due to the strength of these songs that had no place on KID A, we see a b-side album turned LP

And as is with any b-side, it takes more than 100 listens to find what the band were trying to do with some of these songs but once you do, songs such as Life in a Glass House and Dollars & Cents open up and become the most powerful pieces Radiohead had created up to that date, definitely a signal of the Jazzy future that would be In Rainbows.

88 - a grower, also do not be a fool and not check out the b-sides released in this time, Like Spinning Plates Live is haunting, The Sounds of Orgy is the sexiest Radiohead you'll ever hear and Kinetic sounds like the wet dream Kid A would have had.

Also here is a possible tracklist that could have been made for this album:
Pyramid Song
I Might Be Wrong
The Amazing Sounds of Orgy
Hunting Bears
Knives Out
True Love Waits (Live)
Like Spinning Plates (Live)
Dollars & Cents
You and Whose Army
Kinetic
Packt Like Sardines in a Crushd Can
Worrywort
Life in a Glasshouse
