5.0 out of 5 stars The Lukewarm 9 May 2004
Format:Audio CD
Another must-have for RH fans. I was lucky enough to actually be standing there at Earls Court for the recording of 2+2=5 live and listening to the track again on CD after experiencing it for real just sends shivers down my spine. The song has so much energy live and you can sense Thom's crazy dance around the stage through the sound of his voice as the song explodes. The CD as a whole holds a mix of different styles and contains some fantastic previously unreleased material such as 'Gagging Order' (a pleasant sounding acoustic number) 'Paperbag Writer' (sounds like an amnesiac trialist) and 'I Am A Wicked Child' (a bit different...funky folk rock with a harmonica!). However, 'Fog, live' stands out as its best track and is the definitive version of the song. It considerably out-performs the studio recording in a similar way to how 'Like Spinning Plates, live' on the 'I Might Be Wrong EP' is the better version.

3.0 out of 5 stars Some weird and some beautiful 19 Aug 2009
By Matthew
Format:Audio CD
When I first listened to this 'album' I was a bit freaked out by it. Some of the songs make you feel like you are tripping in some way, what helps add to the trippy feeling is the way it's been produced, heavy panning from side, songs that really shouldn't be merged together being squashed on top of each other.
For example the first track (2+2=5 live) has the audience applause drifting onto track 2 (Remyxomatosis (Cristian Vogel Remix)) which is a studio track with synths remimisant to their 'Kid A' period. Don't get me wrong I'm not insulting the music production, mostly everything weird that you hear they somehow pulled off to make it a nice little creative touch.

Going back to what I said about the 'trippy' feel off the CD, alot of the tracks are very pessimistic, which Thom's vocals coming off as very haunting. After all this is radiohead.... so at points the 'trip' can be referred to as a bad trip I guess.

But not all of the tracks are downers, if you own 'hail to the thief' you will notice that they have redone 'I will', and I actually prefer the version on here, it's much more uplifting with real beautiful guitar parts throughout.

My personal favourites are 'Gagging order' which is one of the most hopeful and beautiful piece's of music Radiohead have ever wrote, and 'Fog (again)' which is another amazing song, which consists only of vocals and a piano, from the live performance Thom played at Le Reservoir.

Overall I would have to say it's a very mixed album, I personally don't like Kid A too much, so the 'electro' tracks I guess you could call them which make up half of the CD aren't really for me. If you are a Kid A fan then you will love this compilation, but for those looking for more of The Bends and OK computer you won't be too downhearted by the gems on this disc which in my opinion definitely make it worth purchase.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fun for collectors 6 May 2013

This is strictly for collectors, in my opinion. If you love Radiohead's music from the Kid A + Amnesiac period, you'll probably dig this.

3.0 out of 5 stars Two diamonds, but also a good deal of rough 4 Mar 2011
Format:Audio CD
With their then-latest album numbering a career-topping fourteen tracks, you'd be forgiven for thinking there weren't any B-sides left to put out on the now customary Radiohead companion piece. Sure enough, Com Lag sniffs around the creative wasteland left by the band's idea-gobbling sixth album, and finds... not a lot.

This isn't surprising, as the whole point of Hail To The Thief was to encompass everything the band does, meaning there'd be little good reason not to pile something onto the finished record. We open with a reminder of their efforts: a live rendition of 2+2=5. It's a cracker, obviously. This version offers a slightly louder bass that gives the song a more awesome aspect. Then we get a remix - the first of two. You can already feel this EP practically gasping for ideas.

To be fair, Remyxomatosis (how could they resist?) is fun. A busy but danceable beat takes the place of the song's defining aspects (namely, Phil and Colin), and at least it has the decency not to try to repeat the song. Thom's more-breathless-than-usual vocal does grow tiresome, though.

Next is a semantically different version of I Will. It's still good, because it's a brilliant song, but the changes really are minor. There are drums now (they add zilch), and of the two vocal parts that make up the harmony, Thom emphasises the lower, not the higher. This version somehow has more than a whiff of Amnesiac, and might have been at home there, with its creative cousin, Like Spinning Plates. But I wouldn't be surprised if some people heard it and thought, "I give up - isn't that just the same song?"

Paperbag Writer sounds, thanks to its antlike drum machine and insignificant instruments, like a remix of something else. There are good parts to it, but it feels wholly unfinished.

5.0 out of 5 stars Impressive, even for a B-side anthology! 11 May 2004
Format:Audio CD
I first heard about this CD on Friday 7th. I ordered it on Saturday the 8th. Today, the familiar cardboard parcel was waiting for me in the hallway. Eager and excitable, I opened the packaging and to my amazement, saw a shiny card-based CD case with mainly Japanese writing on the cover! I thought I had the wrong CD, but then read Radiohead near the bottom so knew it was the album I'd been so keen to buy...
...and what an album! You'll probably only have heard of this LE release if you're a Radiohead fan already, and if you're not, I'd probably best tell you that it's an album needing quite an acquired taste. The tracks are all unsurprisingly similar to what was on Hail To The Thief, and may take two or three playings to get into. But once you've achieved that, they're stunning, blissful works of genius!
I'm not going to bore you all with track-by-track reviews and commentary, but if you're a fan of the band and haven't bought all the singles, I urge you to buy this CD! Even the packaging and inlay booklet are works of art alone! And who knows, it might be valuable in the near future!
Stunning!
