Editorial Reviews

Rolling Stone (1/03/02, p.119) - Ranked #10 in Rolling Stone's "Top 10 2001".

Rolling Stone (6/21/01, pp.74-5) - 3.5 stars out of 5 - "...Clear proof that the progressive-rock impulse survived the 20th century....full of computerized clicks and hums...and of instruments and voices so heavily filtered they sound alienated even from themselves....It's like ZZ Top kidnapped by Autechre..."

Spin (1/02, p.76) - Ranked #2 in Spin's "Albums of the Year 2001".

Spin (7/01, pp.123-4) - 7 out of 10 - "...Lullabies for the compressed present...abandoning verse-chorus-verse motion to let the tracks just roll out, like bolts of cloth..."

Q (7/01, p.118) - 4 stars out of 5 - "...Similarly shy, textural and embroidered by electronica, but where it differs vitally from KID A is in being 1) better balanced, 2) more emotionally intelligible and 3) even more grimly beautiful..."

Alternative Press (2/02, p.64) - Ranked #1 in AP's "25 Best Albums of 2001".

Alternative Press (7/01, p.79) - 9 out of 10 - "...Quintessentially Radiohead, full of existential rock songs powered by Yorke's delicate, aching, soaring vocals..."

Magnet (12-1/02, p.57) - Included in Magnet's "20 Best Albums of 2001".

The Wire (1/02, p.40) - Ranked #18 in Wire's "50 Records of the Year 2001".

The Wire (6/01, p.52) - "...It works for as long as you can keep other - weighted, braver, graver - examples or exemplars out of your mind, The moment you summon Jeff Buckley or John Cale, PiL or Can, Talk Talk or David Sylvian, the spell is broken..."

CMJ (6/4/01, p.5) - "...Another adventuresome, aloof, non-rock joint that's more an album of concepts than a concept album..."

Vibe (8/01, p.160) - 4 discs out of 5 - "...Populated with skittish techno beats, water-damaged samples and the kind of vocal mastery you would hear from a wounded donkey....If genuises are slightly mad, then Radiohead is stark, raving bonkers..."

Mojo (Publisher) (1/02, p.69) - Ranked #10 in Mojo's "Best [40] Albums of 2001".

Mojo (Publisher) (7/01, p.104) - "...Deliriously provocative....as splendidly other and awkward as its sister album [KID A]..."

NME (Magazine) (12/29/01, p.59) - Ranked #25 in NME's 50 "Albums Of the Year 2001".

NME (Magazine) (6/2/01, p.37) - 8 out of 10 - "...It complements KID A beautifully....the jazz spasms and electronic pulsings, the chill blood, and most of all, the chronic hypersensitivity to the world outside..."

Pitchfork (Website) - "[I]t's an emotionally resonant and often very warm record."
