  1. Quality aside, the questionable sequencing of Amnesiac does little to hush the argument that the record is merely a thinly veiled b-sides compilation...
  2. More often than not, Amnesiac finds a balance between twiddling and transcendence. [Jul 2001, p.79]
  3. By resolutely forgetting formula, Radiohead proves itself all the more relevant with Amnesiac.
  4. A sonic extravaganza for effects-loving headphone devotees, Amnesiac is another Radiohead effort that requires a bit of a leap to get into but is pretty unforgettable once you're there.
  5. It is hard to shake the feeling that these songs may actually be leftovers.

    "It is obvious that reviewers listening to "a record of B sides" have little comprehension of what is truely interesting and intuitive "It is obvious that reviewers listening to "a record of B sides" have little comprehension of what is truely interesting and intuitive music." HAHAHAHAHAHAHA. that review is the funniest thing i've read all day; it reminds me of why i hate 85% of radiohead's fans. you know, the ones who write intense, poorly articulated arguments putting down everyone who doesn't think that everything thom & the band puts out is pure genius (sans 'pablo honey', of course). having said that, amnesiac is the weakest link in radiohead's otherwise impressive catalog.
