Radiohead have never been that good at sequencing their albums (OK Computer sounds better in reverse) so I recommend giving the below a try:

1. "You and Whose Army?" (Amnesiac) - 3:11
2. "Pulk/Pull Revolving Doors" (Amnesiac) - 4:07
3. "Knives Out" (Amnesiac) - 4:15
4. "Life in a Glasshouse" (Amnesiac) - 4:34
5. "I Might Be Wrong" (Amnesiac) - 4:54
6. "Motion Picture Soundtrack" (Kid A) (silence and bonus track removed) - 3:24
7. "In Limbo" (Kid A) - 3:31
8. "Treefingers" (Kid A) - 3:42
9. "Pyramid Song" (Amnesiac) - 4:49
10. "The National Anthem" (Kid A) - 5:50
11. "Morning Bell" (Amnesiac) - 3:14
12. "Optimistic" (Kid A) - 5:16
13. "How to Disappear Completely" (Kid A) - 5:55
14. "Packt Like Sardines in a Crushd Tin Box" (Amnesiac) - 4:00
15. "Kid A" (Kid A) - 4:44
16. "Dollars and Cents" (Amnesiac) - 4:52
17. "Hunting Bears" (Amnesiac) - 2:01
18. "Everything in Its Right Place" (Kid A) - 4:11
19. "Idioteque" (Kid A) - 5:09
20. "Morning Bell" (Kid A) - 4:29
21. "Like Spinning Plates" (Amnesiac) - 3:57

"You and Whose Army?" is a good statement of intent to open with as it's has a resigned but finger pointing bit of aggression to it.

For me the centrepiece is "Pyramid Song" segueing seamlessly into "The National Anthem" (performed in the same key or time signature?). They sound to me like the one song.

"Everything in Its Right Place" is probably the best song so it's interesting to have it buried at the back end of the album. Also "Hunting Bears", a pointless instrumental, finds a worthwhile place as a palette cleanser before "Everything in Its Right Place".

"Like Spinning Plates" makes a nice subtle last track to wind down with. I imagine that it would segue back into the first track, "You and Whose Army?", very nicely if you put the album on a loop.

No one needs two versions of "Morning Bell" but I don't think it does any harm to keep both of them. If you want to only keep one then I recommend removing the Kid A version (track 20).

Radiohead fans on the internet are the worst.

You seem to think you're heavy weight intellectuals and anyone who likes Radiohead, but doesn't adore them, are light weight scum who can't handle anything more difficult than Girls Aloud's latest singles (not their albums as they're too demanding for us obviously).

Radiohead are very good, but they're not untouchable.

"you understand nothing about this music", how self important do you have to be to write a comment like that?
