Biography

Radiohead created a rock grunge sound influenced by Nirvana and the Pixies in the nineties, with albums like Pablo Honey and The Bends. In the 2000s, they Merged electronica with abrasive guitar with Kid A and Amnesiac. They inspire the listener to be uplifted and reflective in equal measure.

This absolutely brilliant complete rip-off is not going to be of any interest to long time fans who already own everything here anyway. To newcomers it offers a wealth of great music and is the pefect place to start an exploration of the band. If you love this you may well find yourself tracking down 15 year old B-Sides and wearing T-shirts with evil bears on before you know where you are.
1st album Pablo Honey is fairly average, but the others are all seminal. The Bends was britpop with an underbelly, OK Computer had to nerve to shake its fist at the entire universe. Kid A took manufacture and called it 'nasty', Amnesiac was so fantastically brutal I had to take a shower afterwards. Hail to the Thief was, surprisingly, really good fun, and the live mini-album is a great little peephole on the Radiohead live phenomenon (which is very different to the studio sound). So, this disgustingly insulting, completely devoid of artisitic merit, shameless, corporate pocketfiller of absolutely stunning music half of the world has already got is well worth buying. I'd recommend it to anyone, even if it is rubbish. It also has Bears on the box.

It's really very simple. If you own all of these CDs already then, unsurprisingly, this boxset won't interest you. However, giving it a 1-star rating for this reason is ludicrous. Why not then go through your entire CD collection, locate them on Amazon and give them 1-star because you own them already!? If, on the other hand, you're new to Radiohead and have only heard their latest effort and want to discover more, this boxset is perfect. 'The Bends', 'OK Computer' and 'Kid A' are three of the finest albums ever created, which show the evolution of Radiohead's sound from the guitar-driven, instantly accessible, melodious pop/rock of 'The Bends' to the minimalist, electronic world of 'Kid A'.
A great purchase! (IF YOU DON'T OWN THEM ALL ALREADY :p)

In all likelihood, this is a release Radiohead don't want you to buy, so if you're that kind of fan, don't bother. Furthermore, if you already own all the albums, then don't bother. There is nothing extra or new here aside from some snazzy new artwork and a fancy box, so if that's what you're looking for, wander off now.

Assuming Radiohead have another decade in them, this box set documents what may well eventually be known as their EMI Phase, six studio albums and one live mini-album (calling it the 'seven album box set' may be a bit misleading to those expecting In Rainbows to be included). The only way to sensibly review this is to go over it album by album - is actually worth buying this box set rather than getting the albums individually if you're a new fan? (spoiler alert: yes, yes it is).

In the context of a world-eating superband like Radiohead, the less said about 1993's lukewarm Pablo Honey the better. The views of most fans have been blurred in context of Radiohead's hatred of their own mega-hit Creep and the towering success of their follow-up albums. It's not all bad; in fact, most bands would be proud of a debut including songs as good as 'Stop Whispering.'

The Bends is where everything changed. The first of the band's holy triad, whilst 'Street Spirit (Fade Out)' never really made sense in context, The Bends is much more an album of stunning songs than it is a great album like OK Computer. But many of the songs beat out anything on Computer, even the lesser known '(nice dream)' or 'Black Star,' whilst straightforward compared to 'Paranoid Android' have an esoteric charm or in the latter's case, even a hook.

OK Computer is, in this writer's opinion, the band's high-water mark.

Why can't people just review the product when they submit reviews to Amazon. Yes, the record company are cashing in, timing this with the release of In Rainbows, but as with all reviews, we should be telling people who don't own these items but are considering buying them whether or not it's worth their money.
So amazon reviewers, please help people instead of using this review resource as a forum to show how much you know, or pretend you hate record companies when the only thing you choose to understand about them is that they exist to make cash.
In my opinion, this is a very worthwhile purchase for those who are maybe beginning a CD collection - the strange/appealing thing about a Radiohead boxset is the sheer variety of styles encountered from album #1 (Pablo Honey) through to Hail to the Thief.
Pablo honey and The Bends are certainly the most accessible and radio friendly records and tracks such as Creep and Just will jump out at you straight away.
OK Computer follows on nicely from the Bends but shows arguably more ideas and substance and is a satisfyingly darker album. Their best tracks in my opinion (Lucky, Paranoid Android, Exit Music) are all on here.
The 3 remaining albums (Kid A, Amnesiac, and Hail to the Thief) are slightly less accessible and are definitely more experimental. Although I think the quality of these albums is average (though 70% of HTTT is absolutely superb - 2+2=5, sail to the moon, punch-up at a wedding, etc...), it is average in the best possible way - that is, at worst they will present an idea that doesn't quite come off (such as National Anthem - great live song and you can jump around to it, but hardly tuneful or melodic).
