Fuck it, we're doing Kid A

Radiohead's Kid A is a seminal record, one of great import and influence over me, and has always felt a bit “obvious” as a feature choice. I guess not as obvious as OK Computer, but… still. Less to teach about it, perhaps. Although, maybe that's presumptive in itself, since it's a record whose revolutionary impact in Radiohead's career is through its remarkably broad influences from across many genres.

Plus all things considered, we live in Bad Times and I am comforted by familiar, powerful records as these. Thus, fuck it, let's hold the familiar things close.
