Not That Kind of Player
 
Kid A exists as a commentary on the postmodern state of human life.  Emotional distance due to the proliferation of technology, loss of identity and floating through life provide the themes that drive Kid A to the heights heralded by music critics and fans alike.  Nestled in between the Y2K hysteria and the events of September 11, 2001, the album provides a snapshot of a time (perhaps a time still present) in which the world that we live in is not the world that we think we know.  Combined with the terrifying notion of not knowing one’s true self, Kid A provides a cathartic light in the fog for those looking for direction.  Kid A reminds us that, not all who wander are lost.
