Radiohead are the greatest band in the world now (possibly, maybe, depending on your view). They are adventurous, limitless, innovative, ingenius....all these things and more. Their music has been, in the last ten years, an evoloutionary process. Their high water marks are, of course, The Bends and OK Computer. It is perhaps fitting then, that this video contains all the videsos to all the singles from those two masterpieces.
Because the band have outright political and social views, and are against commercialism and such, their videos are anything but the standard MTV soft porn 3 minute sound and vision bites. They go hand in hand with the music and further the effect of the music. It's pretty difficult once you've watched these films to listen to, say, 'Just', and not think of that extraordinary video that accompanies it. It's the same with every song. Each is unique and different, not only to other people's work, but to their own work as well.
There are no standouts, particularly, as they're all so vividly different, but both of Jonathan Glazer's contributions, 'Karma Police' and 'Street Spirit' are superb. 'Paranoid Android' too, directed by someone German, I think, is a brilliantly disturbing, realisitic and suitable accompaniment to that dislocated, unstable and tense six-minute epic.
Emotional, funny, quirky, eccentric, angry, heartbreaking, political, contemporary, original....I could go on forever, but I won't (1,000 words minimum!!). Seriously, if you are a fan of Radiohead, this will only make you love them more.
