Radiohead’s third album, OK Computer, released in 1997, brought them to international fame; mainly due to its complex production and modern themes of alienation, the album is recognized as an important record and one of the best albums in popular music.
His next album, Kid A, released in 2000, marked a dramatic change in style, incorporating influences from electronic music, jazz, classical music, and krautrock. Although Kid A divided its audience, the album went on to receive widespread acclaim. It was followed by Amnesia which was released in 2001, recorded in the same sessions as Kid A.
The 2003 release of Hail to the Thief has lyrics inspired by War on Terror, like Radiohead’s last album for EMI.
