Amusingly serious sleevenotes aside (classical music etiquette deems Radiohead songs are actually written by Thomas Yorke, Jonathan Greenwood, Edward O'Brien, etc), O'Riley finds sedative melodic beauty hidden behind the rodent-bashing fancy of "Knives Out" while "Exit Music" and "Airbag" are chillingly distant, seemingly conveyed by invisible fingers from the haunted ballroom at the end of the marble corridor. "Arrest this man he's like a detuned radio" sang Thom Yorke in 1997. However, thanks to Christopher O'Riley, the hitherto unthinkable concept of Middle-Englanders chinking their afternoon cups and saucers to the strains of "Karma Police" on Classic FM has just become a reality. --Kevin Maidment
Chris, on the other hand, understands Radiohead, he himself is a fan, and perhaps most importantly he understands and appreciates fellow fans.
I was drawn in from the opening of 'Everything in its right place', mystified as to exactly how this could be transcribed from its minimal electronic roots, the answer for me anyhow is beautifully. Not only is the opener beautiful, but also it crawls under the skin and twists and turns your emotions in the same fashion as the original.
The record never fails at any point, and never tempts you towards the skip button. In the end you will not put this cd in a drawer with your collection, you will play it over and over again and you may even discover the depth that can be tempted out of a piano.
Chris sounds like the whole band and opens up another dimension to Radiohead's works that is not only a tribute to his playing, but also a tribute to the works of Radiohead.
This is the first time that the piano has ever turned my head and captured my attention for so long.
Chris deserves to be rewarded heavily for this and hopefully his ever-increasing fan base will support him from here on in.
This cd is awesome. Ofcourse it is not radiohead ... whom I LOVE ... but it is a great tribute. Read more
