Product Description

RADIOHEAD I Might Be Wrong - Live Recordings (Out of print 2001 UK 8-track CD featuring The National Anthem Idioteque and Everything In Its Right Place plus the previously unreleased True Love Waits - recorded from various shows in Oxford Berlin Oslo and Vaison La Romaine. Housed in a slightly oversized gatefold card picture sleeve)

Amazon.co.uk

Given that Radiohead are one of the most zealously bootlegged bands in the world--nearly every public utterance is out there somewhere--the emergence of I Might Be Wrong, the band's first ever official live album, would seem a tardy and superfluous gesture. Conversely, Radiohead have never gone out of their way to actively discourage the black market trading of their live wares. Which makes you wonder just what is the intention of this live album? Could it be for hardcore fans who wish to remain on the right side of the law? Or could it be symbolic; the drawing of a double-ledger line under the sporadically interesting but frustratingly contrary anti-guitar rock intransigence of the Kid A/Amnesiac era and the opening-up of whole new chapter? Or perhaps it's because they just wanted to put out a live album? We must wait and see. And so, in all probability, must they. Nevertheless, I Might Be Wrong--featuring eight songs culled from live shows in Berlin, Oslo, the Roman amphitheatre at Vaison le Romaine (how very Pink Floyd of them) and their triumphant homecoming gig at Oxford's South Park--is pretty much beyond reproach, even if the renditions here--"National Anthem" (Charlie Mingus inspired with a raspy Motorhead bass line) "I Might Be Wrong" (Led Zeppelin meets Blondie's "Rapture") deviate little from the script of the original studio versions. The notable exception is an enchanting recital of "Like Spinning Plates", wherein the backwards electronica of the Amnesiac original is superseded by a romantic, ornate piano accompaniment for a classic Radiohead moment. Long-term devotees will also notice the first ever appearance on record of "True Love Waits" (Yorke with solo acoustic guitar), a song which Radiohead have grappled with for years and which finally finds a handle--and a home--right here. --Kevin Maidment

Format: Audio CD
Some fans of Radiohead complained that "Kid A" and "Amnesiac" were just too clean cut, not containing the edge or emotion of the previous bunch. This live collection is kind of a step between.
Amnesiac takes some of the finest tracks from "Kid A" and "Amnesiac", and introduces the public to the live recordings of these tracks. All are different from the originals, with new instruments being introduced to substitute old ones, often enhancing the music, and, other songs being revamped completely. For instance, instead of the backwards warbling and somewhat boring backing theme that "Like Spinning Plates" had on the album, a piano is introduced, which creates a far superior track in my opinion.
There is one new track on the album, which is "True Love Waits". This is the highlight of the album, and consists of Yorke pouring out his heart over a beautiful acoustic ballad in the vein of "Exit Music".
The crowd cheer along to the crashes and wails of "Idioteque", the rumbles and cracks of "Dollars & Cents", and the haunting "Morning Bell" sounds as superb as ever. The only track that I didn't enjoy was "Everything in it's right place", which just doesn't seem to work live.
Definetely worth buying if you have Kid A & Amnesiac, if you don't, get the others first.

After having their last two albums treated by some in the music press as if they were some bizarre, weird, tuneless dirge that only the seriously demented fan could love, I would say this live album comes as something of a rather rich triumph.
The reception to Kid A and Amnesiac were, let's be honest, a little hostile. "Where are the tunes??" a bemused bunch of reviewers whined. Well, they were certainly there if you bothered to listen closely enough! I just couldn't understand this attitude; your average Radiohead fan, after the complexity and beauty of OK Computer was clearly the kind of music fan who could handle music that was happy to swerve in any direction it fancied (bit of jazz in National Anthem? Yeah, why not!).
So with "I Might Be Wrong" I think the critics can comfortably shut up for five minutes and listen as a song as barmy and off the wall as Idioteque is treated by a crowd as if Oasis were about to launch into Wonderwall. It's a weird moment when you can hear them chant "take the money and run, take the money..." with Thom!
This IS challenging music, it defies what 'rock' music is considered to be, and it does so without descending into the po-faced approach of Pink Floyd (a comparison I've never managed to get my head round).
Ultimately this is a superb record that in certain instances provides interpretations of songs that are actually better than their original counter-parts.
I cherish Radiohead, because without them British music would be a hell of a lot less interesting!

Format: Audio CD
If the hurried release of 'Amnesiac' barely a year after 'Kid A' wasn't enough of a shock for Radiohead fans, a live EP (containing only tracks from the aforementioned albums, bar one rarity) in the same year must've seemed like an overload. Quite what the motivation for the release of 'I Might Be Wrong' was we may never know, but for what it is, three years on it remains an interesting anomaly in the back catalogue of Yorke and his companions.
Whatever way you go about it, opening with a thundering rendition of 'The National Anthem' is a pretty damned good statement of intent. While hardly to the quality of more recent live versions of the song (not least the band's performance of the song at Earl's Court in 2003, where the song was layered with deafening war reports), it still retains a similar snarling edge. 'I Might Be Wrong' is transformed, the original somewhat slower, the version here closer resembles Radiohead's more guitar-based work like 'Electioneering'. 'Idioteque' (arguably the best song from 'Kid A') is a cacophony of beats, drums and Yorke's lyrics of impending doom, and is twice as frantic as the original. 'Morning Bell' remains faithful to the original (that "cut the kids in half" lyric is still as frightening as the first time you heard it), as does 'Amnesiac''s 'Dollars And Cents' (although here it sounds unremarkable after the hundreds of buzzing, chattering Thoms that bring the extended 'Everything In Its Right Place' to a close).
'Like Spinning Plates', originally a bizarrely beautiful experimentation of distorted and twisted sounds (not least Yorke's vocal, which sounded like it was being played backwards), here is completely stripped and turned into a brooding, funereal piano ballad (similar to 'Pyramid Song') unarguably superior to the 'Amnesiac' version.

This new CD is a must buy for anyone who is a true fan of Radiohead. If you went to any of their concerts when they promoted the Amnesiac album you will probably have heard everyone of these songs. Starting off with The National Anthem, one of the best songs on KID A when in its studio form, you know what to expect from the rest of the CD; only the finest songs from Radioheads latest 2 outings. One of the main stand out tracks is Like Spinning Plates. When you hear it for the first time you wont recognise the song. It starts with a beautiful piano introduction and when the lyrics kick in, only then will you know what it is. Idioteque also stands out as Thom Yorke puts tremendous energy into the vocals and you can almost see him dancing about the stage in a way only he can (and does when this track is performed live). True Love Waits is the most beautiful track in the collection. Thom Yorkes amazing vocals bring the song to life. Fans of the band have been waiting at least 3 years for this song to see the light of day on a CD and at last its here. There are no poor tracks on this Cd, some are good, a number are outstanding, but all are a clear indication of just how good the best rock band to come out of England in a long long time really are.
