5.0 out of 5 stars The CD's a cash grab, this is brilliance, 4 May 2008
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant., 26 Jun 2006
I can't talk this thing up enough! Arrived two days after I ordered it (actually the next working day), this lil gem arrived in pristine condition and came with everything you could possibly need; a remote, batteries for the above and even an indoor aerial! It was set up in 5 minutes, with superb picture and sound quality. It has lots of nice features, like the calendar and (although Amazon don't make much of it) a "sound check" feature that makes loud adverts quieter. Not tested this much but if it works then blimey...

The remote is a little confusing, but you get the hang of it quickly, and really for this fantastic price (a full 60 quid less than what my local electronics place wanted for a 14" DVD combi) you can't complain. Why pay more, really?
