That makes a lot of sense though. Amnesiac, coming from the same recording sessions as Kid A is really a close brother if not a twin to the album. In this way...it may have been good of them to include Amnesiac as a "disc 2" rather than an entirely separate album. But since they did, it kinda emphasizes the direction they wanted with Kid A, as you say, high art and Amnesiac the more accessible which is perhaps why they released so quickly after Kid A. For those desiring something like that, Amnesiac with such a similar sound to Kid A, could be released and make fans of all wants, very pleased.
