  • Spectrum Culture

    Through this release, Radiohead have gifted something more valuable than uncovered music or new insights into their creative process. They’ve given music critics what they always want - a new reason to talk about Kid A.

  • Record Collector Magazine

    Two decades on, Kid A Mnesia is the sound of stadium-rock’s route maps being re-navigated, by a band whose promise of commitment to the “next life” wouldn’t let the kids down.

    Ultimately, ‘Kid Amnesiae’ not only offers a mood piece, but also a companion and secret history behind the making of two essential, landmark records – and the rebirth of a great band.

  • Uncut

    Taken together, these kaleidoscopic dual albums remain game-changing landmarks in the spirit of Bowie’s Berlin trilogy or Remain In Light by Talking Heads. Hearing them again two decades later, the shock of the new has faded, but the sonic richness and meticulous attention to detail endures. Behind the fizz and crunch and crackle lies a surprisingly lush, soulful beauty.

    Kid A Mnesia: Exhibition is essentially a tour through a damn good and trippy album with stunning visuals. The experience, on the whole, was about 20 to 30 minutes per walkthrough. And it is free for all on the epic store, so I would say that it worth going through it. Just do not expect much from this “game”.

  • The Firenote

    Radiohead has given us a gift by celebrating Kid A and Amnesiac 21st anniversary with the Kid A Mnesia collection. While some of the other bonus material is a bit of cutting room floor filler. Radiohead reminds us that in today’s world these songs matter even more-for better or for worse.

  • Northern Transmissions

    what Kid A Mnesia does best is cutting through the mythos and letting these songs and their cousins stand as their own brilliant creations that, 20 years and change later, still have no obvious successors. Everything in its right place.

  • No More Workhorse

    It’s a period of Radiohead’s back catalogue that has been exhaustively dissected online, and the fascination with these two albums hasn’t gone away. It’s unlikely these are the best Radiohead albums, though for many they are the most immersive. Radiohead fans will definitely need this.

  • Commedia

    This album was a success for the British band, as not only did they show their fans a new side, with songs from the vault, but they also managed to create a new ambiance by combining both “Amnesiac” and “Kid A”. Despite fans wanting more B-Sides than alternate versions of existing songs or instrumentals, this album was crafted almost to perfection.

  • Push Square

    Kid A Mnesia: Exhibition, an exploration of art, music, and mood as produced for and evoked by what are arguably Radiohead’s two most polarising pieces.

  • Beats Per Minute

    The dark, haunted cyberpunk sound of Kid A still seems timeless and as gruesomely futuristic as it did upon release, but the way we look at virtual rooms and the access tools to our second life has changed.
