Amnesiac – Radiohead

Radiohead Amnesiac

Amnesiac

(2001), 8/10
Drawn from the same recording sessions as Kid A, Amnesiac is even less song orientated than its predecessor. While it’s weaker overall, Amnesiac certainly has its highlights; the somber yet trippy ‘You And Whose Army’ and the rocking guitars and burbling electronics of ‘I Might Be Wrong’ are two clear examples. The transition from the electronica of ‘Packt Like Sardines in a Crushd Tin Box’ to the stately piano of ‘Pyramid Song’ is masterful, and the well sequenced first half alternates between trippy electronic tracks and slow piano pieces.

The second half of the album is much less convincing, and it’s weak enough to make Amnesiac the least essential Radiohead studio album since Pablo Honey, but it still has its share of highlights and anyone who enjoys their other key albums would be foolish to pass it up.
