[playlist] Hump Day Power Play (2-8-2012)

Kid Amnesiac Edition

A while back, I did a little write-up for my version of Kid Amnesiac. For those unfamiliar, the name explains it all: Kid Amnesiac albums are combined versions of both Radiohead's Kid A and Amnesiac. Since both LPs were products of the same recording session and were released only eight months apart from each other, Kid Amnesiac mixes serve as a way to take two great albums, trim away some of the weaker tracks, and create the strongest Radiohead album to date.

The melding of the two albums into one super album has been done before, and it has been coined in a number of ways (e.g., Kid Amnesiac, Kid A/mnesiac, Kid A[mnesiac]). This week's Hump Day Power Play is my compilation, which I think flows quite nicely. I limited myself to 13 total songs which clocks in at just under an hour, making for a very enjoyable listen. I'm curious how others would compile their Kid Amnesiac track listings, and what that implies about the compiler's musical tastes.
