I'm rapidly running out of superlatives to describe the music this band makes. Although KOL isn't my favourite album of theirs (that would be 'In Rainbows'), the versions of the tracks on this DVD are sublime. 'Codex' is amazing, and 'Give up the Ghost' is a revelation as Thom's haunting vocals are layered live to produce one of the best things I've ever heard. I got into Radiohead by listening to my son's copy of 'In Rainbows' couple of years ago. I now consider them to be the best band in the world bar none, and have since bought all their CD's and DVD's. Long may they continue.

I haven't written too many reviews, but sometimes you feel that something is so good.

This is one of those occasions. This is an amazing DVD by an incredible band. It's a very relaxed performance of the 'King of limbs' album. Featuring all of the tracks, plus a few more.

I love how the DVD is filmed, and being a musician/producer, I really appreciate seeing the studio set up and the gear being used.

Better than the CD 17 April 2012
By Jacktavish - Published on
I didn't love the KOL CD. Then I saw them perform 7 of the 8 songs live and really
liked most of them, especially Separator, Mr. Magpie (James Brown from Jupiter) & Given up the Ghost (early '70's Neil Young).
If you can't see them in concert (tix are always tough to find) at least get both "In The Basement" DVD's.
KOL has at least 10 songs (vs. 8 on CD). After you watch it 2 or 3 times, the songs that sounded unformed or droning on the album start to grow on you like a fungus. Yes, I love The Bends & OK Computer too, but that was then, this is now. You can sit around grousing, or open yourself up to what they're doing now. Seeing them in concert helps the transition. I'm not sure their enormous, layered sound can be contained on a CD anymore.

MUCH better than the album 21 Sept. 2012
By T. Casey - Published on
Verified Purchase
Jeez, I've watched this about a dozen times. For 60s Beatles fans like me, this is what "Let It Be" should have been. A killer band recording an album in front of cameras without overdubs. And it looks and sounds great.

The weird thing is, this is much better than the official "King Of Limbs" album. I bought the WAV download of the official album when it was released, and I liked it, but the only song that REALLY clicked was "Morning Mr. Magpie" (which, I think, is about a morning bird singing outside and screwing up your songwriting efforts).

The rest of the album was good, but the "glitch" effect was applied too liberally, distracting the listener's attention from the song. (To hear glitch at it's best and most melodic, PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE pick up the rather expensive import CD of "Tronika" by Sketch Show. It's one of my top twenty albums!)

This DVD puts the songs in a different light. There's two drummers keeping the weird rhythms going along with three guitars (and the occasional retro keyboard). My God, it works VERY well. I actually took the time to capture the audio to CD. This is a killer album.

This is way up there with stuff like The Talking Heads' "Stop Making Sense". Buy it now, before it's gone.

(P.S. "Giving Up The Ghost" is the most sublime and breath-taking musical performance I have on video.)

If this doesn't blow you away, then you're not a Radio Head! 15 Aug. 2012
By PotomacG - Published on

So I kept this on my DVR for months. Supposedly high def in 5.1 surround - recorded off Palladium (with commercials of course).
In an effort to clear room off my DVR, I ordered the DVD because I already knew this was a keeper. Watched it over and over again.
When the DVD came, I had to do a little A-B comparison between the 1080i on DVR and the lowly 480p that is the DVD.
(Let's forget the fact that the DVD has no commercials and 3 more songs than the broadcast version.)
I was floored by the sound and video quality of this DVD. It simply blew away the recording I had been saving for months in both sound and picture quality. No comparison - this DVD is superb.
I'm just saddened by the fact that I can't find "In Rainbows Live from the Basement" on DVD. I have to enjoy watching those videos with headphones on my iPod.
Simply put, their Live from the Basement stuff is unbelievably good. Sound/Video/Live Performances as good as they get!
Highly recommended...

I love Radiohead! 15 July 2012
By barbara fletcher - Published on
Verified Purchase
I am a new Radiohead fan and I have bought all the books, DVD's and CD's I can find. I love this DVD because the music is beautiful and the band members are more at ease than on stage. I play it over and over. I am especially glad that Staircase and Super Collider are on the video. I just want more!!!

Nigel is a boss. If you love radiohead, buy this DVD for yourself, your friends and your family. :) These songs you've heard 1000000 times sound new each time. The whole live from the basement series is such a fantastic idea. If my house was burning, this DVD is one of the items I'd grab for sure.
