A Closer Look At Radiohead’s Kid A
Recently, I wrote an article about the 20th anniversary of Radiohead’s Kid A. Since being released in 2000, Kid A has emerged as one of the group’s most groundbreaking and notable records from their entire history. Regardless if you’re a fan of the group or not, every music fanatic should take a thorough listen to Kid A at some point in their life.
Furthering this notion, I stumbled across this video that details a closer look at Kid A and how one Radiohead fan thought they bought an album from another group because of how musically and lyrically different it was from the rest of their records. Facilitating this, my primary appeal of the record is how it’s filled with a fatalistic overtone through irony and sarcasm by portraying snow-capped mountains while the Earth is melting.
Metaphorically, it’s compelling to imagine the album equivalent of two opposites tied to a snow-capped mountain and a melted Earth, but that is what Kid A brought to music over 20 years ago. The video above from Volksgeist, furthers this point by discussing the history of the album, how it was created, how it influenced people who listened to, and various other facts surrounding the album most people might’ve not known. Regardless of your fandom pertaining to Radiohead or Kid A, give this video a watch.
