Radiohead - Amnesiac
Amnesiac is the fifth studio album by the English rock band Radiohead, released in June 2001 by Parlophone. Recorded with producer Nigel Godrich during the same sessions as Radiohead's previous album Kid A (2000), Amnesiac incorporates similar influences of electronic music, 20th-century classical music, jazz and krautrock. Radiohead decided to split the work as they feared a double albumwould be too dense; singer Thom Yorke described Amnesiac as "another take on Kid A, a form of explanation."
Three singles were released from Amnesiac: "Pyramid Song", "I Might Be Wrong" and "Knives Out". Amnesiac debuted at number one on the UK Albums Chart and number 2 on the US Billboard 200 chart. It had sold over 900,000 copies worldwide by October 2008.
Though many critics considered it inferior to Kid A, Amnesiac received mostly positive reviews. In 2012 Rolling Stone ranked it number 320 in their updated version of The 500 Greatest Albums of All Time. It won the Grammy Award for Best Recording Package at the 44th Grammy Awards.
