No Review Available --No Review Available'For a ridiculously daunting subject, Lin does an extraordinary job of engaging the reader in the labyrinth of excursions and theories that Kid A offers. … he asks a combination of all the right questions that music critics and theorists should ask but never becomes muddled by the highbrow concepts and myths of Kid A.'

Review Text

  • By R. Earney on 7 February 2011

    I was really looking forward to this book, but was sorely disappointed by it. Instead of being an in depth study, it is a relatively cursory look at elements of the album coupled with an in depth justification by Marvin Lin of his particular angle on the album - that it is all about time.It could have been interesting as a relatively small section of the book, but as the central part of that it comes across as being pretentious.Kid A is an amazing album, and this book just doesn't do it justice, although it tries very hard.

    Full of interesting facts and ways of looking at the album, it covers just about everything there is to say about the songs and what got Radiohead there. I'm just not sure at all about how it's all linked up and about the main idea that says again and again that the album is about time and how it messes with it. At no point is all this gibberish convincing, or convincingly linked to the album itself... it could be about any album really. Feels like a very long essay with mazing content but very lousily brought together. C-

    Bought it for a quick read. Was surprised how interesting and thoughtful it was.

    I bought this book for my boyfriend. He was extremely happy to have one of the 33 1/3 books as he says these are fantastic. This one, on Radioheads KidA is very informative and a joy to read. Marvin Lin captures these albums fantastically.
