Product Overview

How the British rock band Radiohead subverts the idea of the conceptalbum in order to articulate themes of alienation and anti-capitalism is the focusof Marianne Tatom Letts''s analysis of Kid A and Amnesiac. These experimental albumsmarked a departure from the band''s standard guitar-driven base layered with complexproduction effects. Considering the albums in the context of the band''s earlierreleases, Letts explores the motivations behind this change. She places the twoalbums within the concept-album/progressive-rock tradition and shows how both resistthat tradition. Unlike most critics of Radiohead, who focus on the band''s lyrics, videos, sociological importance, or audience reception, Letts focuses on the musicitself. She investigates Radiohead''s ambivalence toward its own success, asmanifested in the vanishing subject of Kid A on these two albums.
