5.0 out of 5 stars The CD's a cash grab, this is brilliance 4 May 2008
Format:DVD
EMI have, rather cynically, decided that now Radiohead have left them, they're going to release a Greatest Hits CD made up of some of the material from the 6 albums they recorded for them. Radiohead had no involvement whatsoever in the selection of the songs, the composition of the packaging, anything, and at any rate I would urge anyone interested to just buy the 6 albums for themselves - each (OK, maybe not Pablo Honey) a work of brilliance.

However, the Best of DVD is worth the money, purely because it is the first proper collection of Radiohead's music videos since "7 Television Commercials" back in the mid 1990s. Everything is in here, bar the Kid A "blips" (which wouldn't fit into a DVD format very well anyway). As well as the (typically brilliant) videos from throughout the band's career, it also includes two very rare videos, including what has to be hands down the most terrifyingly disturbing music video ever, "Pulk/Pull Revolving Doors and Like Spinning Plates". In some senses, the purchase price is worth it just to witness the fact that there's one band which has videos which can actually disturb you like that.

So yes, by all means, buy this collection, because there's not been anything like it ever. A cash grab it may be, but every cloud has a silver lining.

3.0 out of 5 stars One for the serious fans. 23 Jun 2008
Format:DVD
Radiohead are a great band, and I don't think this compilation of their videos could be classed as a cash in. If you are a big fan of Radiohead, rather than someone who mainly likes their better known work, it is a good thing to have for your collection.
Their videos are some of the most creative, experimental, original and beautiful ever made. However I found myself a little disappointed with the overall standard and didn't enjoy all of the videos as much as I thought I would. Whilst the band have this reputation for very complex, arty videos - be aware that a few of the videos are basically just recorded live gigs or performance videos.
The middle of the DVD has, in my opinion, the strongest videos and songs - from the bands strongest and most acclaimed albums - The Bends and OK Computer. 'Just' is my favourite of the videos, but Karma Police, No Surprises and Street Spirit are also great in very different ways. I find the earlier songs and videos (apart from Creep of course!) quite immature and `brit poppy' and not up to the standard you would expect. Plus, as the later music becomes more abstract so do the videos. Videos such as the ones for Pyramid Song and Push Pulk/Spinning Plates are truly bizzare and I didn't find them as enjoyable as their earlier work.
It is however interesting to see videos directed by well known film makers including Michel Gondry (Knives Out), who went on to make the excellent Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind. You can also compare the UK and US versions of High and Dry (the US version is much better. Even if I'm not 100% sure I understand it!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great DVD 31 Aug 2008
Format:DVD
Everyone reviewing this seems to be focusing on the sell-out factor and not THE ACTUAL ITEM. This isnt a radiohead approved release since they parted ways with capitol. All that beside the point it is still a staggeringly beautiful set of songs and visuals. If your a fan of radiohead, you need this. It is a corporate money grab, but its still nice to have all the old videos in one place and the music is still awesome. Radiohead still gets paid if you buy this.

Who does videos better than Radiohead? I bought this DVD as a replacement for an older VHS I was retiring (7 TV Commercials), and this provides a lot better value for money.
