Radiohead and producer Nigel Godrich recorded Amnesiac during the same sessions as its predecessor, Kid Areleased in October I think Amnesiac comes out stronger in the band-arrangement way. The sessions produced more than 20 finished tracks. Radiohead considered releasing them as a double albumbut felt the material was too dense. They come from two different places, I think In some weird way I think Amnesiac gives another take on Kid Aa form of explanation.
Only one track, "Life in a Glasshouse", was recorded after Kid A was released. In lateGreenwood wrote to jazz trumpeter Humphrey Lyttelton to ask the Humphrey Lyttelton Band to play on the song, explaining that Radiohead were "a bit stuck".
You know, we've always been a band of great ambition You Come To My Senses - Chicago - Twenty 1 limited playing abilities. They went through quite a few nervous breakdowns during the course of it all, just through trying to explain to us all what they wanted.

O'Brien said that Radiohead often record and abandon different versions of songs, but that this version was "strong enough to bear hearing again".

Yorke said: "We'd turned the tape around, and I was in another room, heard the vocal melody coming backwards, and thought, 'That's miles better than the right way round', then spent the rest of the night trying to learn the melody. Amnesiac ' s cover art was created by Yorke and longtime Radiohead collaborator Stanley Donwood. Likening London to the mythological labyrinthhe saw the city as "an imaginary prison, a place where you can walk around and you are the Minotaur of London, we are all the monsters, we are all half-human, half-beast".
Donwood also designed a special edition package with a hardback CD case in the style of a mislaid library book. He imagined that "someone made these pages in a book Dont Take Your Love Away - Rail - Rail Three it went into drawer in a desk and was forgotten about in the attic And visually and musically the album is about finding the book and opening the pages.
