People acting like "Kid A" and "Amnesiac" are ridiculously difficult, inaccessible albums was silly but more forgivable back when they were released but to STILL have this opinion strikes me as particularly bizarre. Especially if you're an online music critic who is (presumably) at least somewhat familiar with the music that influenced those albums, like Eno and krautrock. All things considered, on most of the songs, those influences are kept relatively subtle and the songs are pretty melodic and straightforward. If you're this confused/distracted by some lo-fi vocals and computer loops in the year 2018, maybe music criticism isn't for you.
