The moment where Radiohead finally left behind the limitations of being an alt.rock band and embraced a whole wide world of weirdness that made ‘alt’ seem as silly a word as it was. The opening track of ‘Kid A’ took their fans further out than they’d ever been before, dabbling in Warp-style electronica, minimalism and all manner of glitchy creepiness. Thom Yorke’s no longer just singing about "unborn chicken voices", as on ‘Paranoid Android’, they seem to have infected his brain and chatter around him in the weirdly hymnal dreamscape of ambient keys.
