Music critic Tom Moon reviews Amnesiac, the new CD by Radiohead. The band recently released Kid A, which was hailed as one of the greatest albums of last year by fans and critics alike, and also considered one of the most difficult and unconventional to listen to. While they were recording Kid A, they were also writing and recording other pieces that make up this new CD. Moon says Amnesiac is transfixing, with cinematic soundscapes, full of existential doubt, and pure joy.
