"2+2=5," the latest brilliant single from Radiohead's brilliant Hail To The Thief album has every right to be all over the radio. Beginning with an electronic buzz and building to a freakout awash in guitars, the track deserves its place in the dictionary as an example of the word "catharsis." Additionally, Radiohead releases are usually causes for joy because with singles come b-sides, where the band is allowed to run free. Curiously, this more commercialised song does not get regular b-sides, rather alternate versions of songs from HTTT. The Four Tet remix of "Scatterbrain" is quite skittish and fits nicely with the tone of the song. The gorgeously smooth version of "I Will" could almost show up on an easy listening station, and would be a viable single option in and of itself. Die hard fans would prefer unreleased tracks, but this disc is a nice appetite whetter for the remix album rumoured to be dropping in 2004. Skip CD1 and get this one instead.
