Amnesiac

 
ARTIST: Radiohead (Google this artist)
ALBUM: Amnesiac
LABEL: Capitol Records
RELEASED: 2001

Amnesiac, Radiohead's short-awaited fifth album, may be their least surprising yet. That's not to say it isn't fantastic, but this is the first time I haven't been blown away by the direction that the band has taken on one of their follow-up albums. To their credit, all the songs on Amnesiac were recorded during the Kid A sessions, and therefore sound stylistically familiar. Lead singer Thom Yorke's return to (somewhat) legible and melodic vocal lines, and the permeation of actual guitar and piano chords on this album (all of which were few and far between in the aforementioned Kid A) do set it apart significantly from it's predecessor. The bottom line is that this is the best album I've heard since, well, Kid A.
