In all honesty, Radiohead should have more than one album on this list. The Bends, OK Computer and even In Rainbows are worthy mentions that barely squeaked off this list. The reason Kid A is on here is not that it’s Radiohead’s best work, but because it is prehaps one of the most influential albums on current music. Kid A was a brand new approach to making pop music; a mix of loops, synths, vocal layers, percussion and drums. It’s reported that each song took over 300 hours to record, and it’s easy to see why. Kid A is a text book, and it’s an album every new artist should be familiar with.
