  Amnesiac - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Amnesiac is the fifth studio album by English band Radiohead, released on June 4, 2001 in the United Kingdom and on June 5 in the United States and Canada, debuting at #1 on the UK charts and #2 on the Billboard Top 200.
Both Amnesiac and Kid A, which was released eight months earlier in 2000, were recorded in the same period, and most if not all of the songs from Amnesiac resulted from the same recording sessions that produced Kid A.
This fact has led some to refer to Amnesiac as a "b-sides" album (or as "Kid B"), although the band has said the two albums should be considered separately, as twins "separated at birth." Amnesiac also includes a very different version of a song from Kid A, "Morning Bell".

 Amnesiac
amnesiac was isolated as a suppressor of dunce mutant phenotype (Quinn, 1979).
Thus Amnesiac is a peptide that has the potential to be secreted by neurons in the memory pathway, thereby activating the adenyl cyclase second messenger pathway.
It is tempting to speculate that PKA phosphorylation of neurotransmitter receptors is altered by ethanol and that this contributes to the behavior of the inebriated animal (Moore, 1998 and references).

 Radiohead: Amnesiac (2001): Reviews
Quality aside, the questionable sequencing of Amnesiac does little to hush the argument that the record is merely a thinly veiled b-sides compilation...
Yes, and it's just as frustrating, too, and fiddly and awkward and self-conscious and self-important and neurotic and panicky, and as often ugly as it is beautiful, and as often pompous or irrelevant as it is profound.
Amnesiac is full of computerized clicks and hums - the kinds of tracks made by geeks alone with their gizmos - and of instruments and voices so heavily filtered they sound alienated even from themselves.

Amnesiac, on the other hand, is colored by despair, regret, and foolish pride — it is the lonely wail of a caged animal.
Amnesiac is the first person narration of the intense loneliness and terror felt in the explosion's wake.
Amnesiac begins to build a new pop aesthetic that incorporates the feeling, the humanity, the beautiful elegance of Radiohead's earlier work with the artistry, the skill, the tact of their later albums.

amnesiac is much more eclectic than kid a some of the tracks on amnesiac just shouldn’t be on kid a because they don’t fit the mood, irregardless of the quality of the material.
amnesiac is much easier to listen to all the way through than kid a.
however, nothing on amnesiac is as beautiful as the title track on kid a, as hypnotic as “everything in its right place,” or as rockin’ as “national anthem”; or “idioteque.”

 Radiohead - Amnesiac
So Amnesiac is scattered with stabs of unsettled lyric, poking up through the mix, each making little connective sense: "You forget so easy"; "There's someone listening in"; "Knives out, catch the mouse"; "There are secret doors"; "Crack your little souls"; "Think about the good times, never look back".
Amnesiac is at is best when it turns entirely inwards, though: the "Pyramid Song" / "Pulk/Pull Revolving Doors" medley is extraordinary, taking visionary mysticism out of the hands of acceptable eccentrics and taking it somewhere grander and less comfortable - before dropping it in the Top Ten.
And the really amazing thing is, in your ears it actually sounds like one of the best albums of the year: Radiohead have not just found the rock/electronica Third Way, they've hit on a creative method which seems elastic enough to allow any number of disparate elements room to manoeuvre and merge.

 Buzz Rant & Rave: Amnesiac
Amnesiac comes from the same gene pool as Kid A. While it is more accessible, it is not a return to guitar-hero territory for Yorke and company.
While the songs on Amnesiac are on par with those from the previous album, they stand alone better than those from Kid A. Once again, Radiohead has put out a front-loaded album.
The most obvious evidence that Amnesiac is related to Kid A is that a reprise of "Morning Bell" appears on Amnesiac.

More song-driven and acoustic than Kid A, Radiohead's Amnesiac isn't quite "Kid B," but it is unquestionably cut from the same far-out cloth, as the band revels in fascinating quirks and abject nihilism.
Amnesiac is different than Kid A because it has a different mood and if any of these songs were put on Kid A instead of this album it wouldn't sound right.
Amnesiac, yes like Kid A, but thats only because these songs were going to be on Kid A, so that means this album is basically B-Sides, but i swear to god, i love this album.

 Radiohead - New Album [Amnesiac]
Amnesiac is to be Radiohead's fifth album released in 8 years.
Though basically Amnesiac is just the songs that didn't fit onto Kid A, the band don't like to say it in that way, because it seems like the new album is just a collection of out-takes.
Amnesiac was recorded at the same time as Kid A so it'll probably sound like a similar album.

 Amnesiac by Radiohead CD
This second helping from the sessions that produced the preceding KID A will probably strike close listeners as a bit more structured, though it'll be difficult to determine whether that's simply because the peregrinations of the last album have prepared them for the trips to the outer limits taken here.
AMNESIAC opens with the claustrophobic, synth-bedecked "Packt Like Sardines in a Crushd Tin Box" and closes with the Dixieland funeral march "Life in a Glass House." Along the way, the band engages in the kind of fearless, pretension-risking (but highly successful) sonic experimentation that made a cultural artifact out of SGT. PEPPER.
Positive notes "packt" "pyramid song" "you and whose army" "i might be wrong"..these are some of their best songs, but the album feels like a bunch of songs put together rather than having it feel like an album, their is no particular mood throughout the album.

 HYBRIDMAGAZINE.COM | REVIEWS | Radiohead - Amnesiac
On Amnesiac, you'll find a band that has created a vivid soundscape that takes you to the outer reaches of their collective imaginations and leaves you there, with a feeling of utter desolation.
However, by no means is Amnesiac a simple pop record—I mean this is Radiohead we're talking about; and in true Radiohead fashion, just as you'd become accustomed to the Coltrane-esque improvisational style of Kid A, they revert back to the Radiohead we remember—well, almost anyway.
The tracks on Amnesiac tell the story of the desperate fight to stay alive juxtaposed with the hopeless inevitability of death—or at least that's what I think of when I listen to it.

 The Music Box: Radiohead - Amnesiac
Consequently, Amnesiac feels more like a hodgepodge of B-sides and previously unreleased recordings (albeit very good ones), resulting in a collection of songs that lean towards the "been there, done that" side of the spectrum.
While Amnesiac does have a little more in common with OK Computer than it does with Kid A, it is not the listener-friendly outing it was touted to be.
Since Amnesiac and Kid A were culled from the same recording sessions, it really shouldn't be much of a surprise that the releases do share such a close bond.

 Radiohead - Amnesiac Review - sputnikmusic
Amnesiac is the weirder of the two Radiohead techno albums, except this one is jacked with piano, and though guitars pop up in this album, they aren't exactly focal points.
During the choppy flow of Amnesiac's eleven pieces, the band seems to have finally reached their breaking point, like on the grand crescendo Life In A Glasshouse, Yorke sneers "Well of course I'd like to sit around and chat, but someone's listening in." Yikes.
Amnesiac just seems to be Yorke's place for scribbling out tortured thoughts, and the listener is dragged along with them, enveloped with this man of quivering bottom lip and Luciferian tenor.

 Amazon.co.uk: Amnesiac: Music: Radiohead   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-23)
Pre-2000 Radiohead was a totally different beast to the 21st century version, and this change in style, attitude and imagination is evident through their fifth studio album.
'Amnesiac' remains a lynchpin of their live act, not in the numerical sense, but in the way that the most moving memorable songs in the set were from the record.
'Amnesiac' however is an experimental, electronic album, so songs such as 'Packt Like Sardines in a Crushd Can' and the jazz-fusion 'Life In A Glasshouse' require a particularly acquired taste.

Amnesiac follows Kid A into experimentalism all the way, but this time with more structured songs and less electronic texturing.
As a whole, Amnesiac is a singular experience and a declaration that they are going to continue to test the limits.
Amnesiac is a deeply emotional album that continues to graft the synthetic and the organic, creating a new species of music.

Amnesiac is the follow-up to the highly acclaimed Kid A, which itself was the complete opposite of their Grammy award winning OK Computer.
Amnesiac continues Radiohead's unique journey of a band not concerned with commercial success.
As the first notes (or noises as it is) of "Packt Like Sardines in a Crushd Tin Box" are heard, the listener is transported into a haunting, introspective, and experimental musical journey.

 Amnesiac, Radiohead album, en IndyRock
Amnesiac saves Yorke's sweetest croon and its most luminous, Beatlesque melody (complete with a "Hey Jude" buildup) for "You and Whose Army?," the honeyed sneer of a band that intends to hold the world at bay.
Speaking in an interview in the current issue of the Big Issue in the UK, Yorke maintained 'Amnesiac' has been finished "for six months", and when deciding which album to release, that or 'Kid A', it was simply "a question of which gun to fire first".
AMNESIAC es el titulo del nuevo trabajo de Radiohead, el quinto album en su carrera que saldra en abril del 2001 y que contendra algunos de los temas que ya han estrenado durante la gira de Kid A y otros completamente nuevos.

Amnesiac is a collection of tracks that shows how Radiohead are almost coming out of their experimental phase, which would seem good, but really isn't.
Radiohead are best when they venture into new worlds, and not try to recreate themselves, as attempted on Amnesiac.
Maybe I'm wrong, but it is very unlikely that Radiohead will ever again find themselves creating a masterpiece for the rest of their career.

 Rolling Stone : Radiohead Talk "Amnesiac"
When Amnesiac, Radiohead's fifth album, is issued in America by Capitol Records on June 5th, some fans might listen to the first number, "Packt Like Sardines in a Crushd Tin Box," and wonder if they've gotten a dial tone.
On Amnesiac, he sings in front of the music with confrontational intimacy -- in the harrowing ballads "Pyramid Song" and "You and Whose Army?"; against the real-rock dirt of "I Might Be Wrong"; amid the mooing jazz-funeral brass in the closing hymn, "Life in a Glasshouse."
Amnesiac marks the end of a long, strained odyssey of self-examination for Radiohead.

 Radiohead | Amnesiac
Directly on the heels of the cult hit Kid A, Radiohead has released Amnesiac, a collection of new material and alternate versions of previously released songs.
Not quite the artistic effort of its predecessor, Amnesiac does manage to deliver a large handful of very thoughtful and emotional songs that are well written, combining pop sensibility with the artistry that Radiohead has defined for itself in recent years.
Although the album doesn't move along with the flow or cohesiveness of the well-arranged Kid A, Amnesiac is still a worthy effort, especially by today's medial listening standards, with a handful of "must have" songs.

 Radiohead - Amnesiac - almost cool music review
Recorded at the same time as their previous release Kid A, Amnesiac was supposedly going to be the return to a more rock based album, or so they said.
As it stands, Amnesiac is the logical progression of those recording sessions, with some tracks that work even better than the previous release, while others simply feel like they might have been tagged on at the last moment.
In the end, Amnesiac feels like the slightly less developed cousin to Kid A. It's good in it's own right, but not quite as consistent.
