Kid A

by Radiohead
October 3, 2000
Seemingly unwilling to stick to a successful formula, Radiohead follow their breakthrough album 'OK Computer' with this much more experimental work (recorded during sessions that also spawned the later-released 'Amnesiac' album), which ventures even further away from conventional song structure and embraces electronica more fully (even sounding at times like Aphex Twin).

by Aimee Mann
May 2, 2000
The third solo release from the former 'Til Tuesday leader finally made it to record stores in May 2000, after a long journey that saw Interscope refuse to release the album and Mann issue it on her own SuperEgo label (after selling it through mail order and at her live performances). All's well that ends well, though, as Mann gained widespread acclaim for her soundtrack to P.T. Anderson's film "Magnolia" and even better reviews for this album, which contains four of the tracks from the soundtrack as well as nine additional songs.
