Newsweek mentions Kid A

In Newsweek’s Fall Arts Preview, the mentioned Radiohead and Kid A. Here’s the blurb:

“Kid A” is the year’s most highly anticipated underground pop album. Enigmatic, arty, and brooding enough to be 2000’s answer to “The Wall,” it’s a sure winner for the “Lie in Bed, Stare at the Ceiling, Contemplate Life” album award.
