Kid A was the album where Radiohead introduced their unique electronic sound. I thought they created an awesome album, filled with quirky and smart beats, freshly generated ambient tones, and soothing lyrics. Definitely one of my favorites from the band.
The album artwork fits well with its illustrative lines and painterly brushstrokes, all within a digital and sharp feel. A nice contrast if you ask me. The colors are mostly muted, blues and grays, with a pop of orange and red, along with a brighter blue on the mountains. Contrast and pop seem to be the main idea here. I feel that translated over to the music very well indeed.
I chose my favorites, the blue-grays. Soothing, rich, and peaceful, these hues can transform any space into a sweet haven of calm. Just my style.
