High quality, but short-lived.,
This review is from: Radiohead -- 7 Television Commercials [DVD]  (DVD)
The first thing you will notice about this DVD is the excellent cover artwork. The cardboard case is stylish and well-represents the image Radiohead were portraying at that time. It was co-designed by lead singer Thom Yorke (aka Tchocky) and regular Radiohead artist Stanley Donwood. So, that's the design out of the way, what's inside?
The seven Radiohead music videos on here are all of a high standard. There's no faulting the excellence of each. You'll find that each of the videos are filmed and made completely differently.
The videos on here, if you hadn't already discovered are:
High and Dry (U.S. Version)
Fake Plastic Trees
The total running time is 34:03 minutes.
The one's that stand out are the now famed 'Just' video with the ever-questioned ending and the wonderfully produced 'Street Spirit'. The most lacking video is probably Karma Police, which simply doesn't offer any replay value, but you should find yourself engrossed into each one.
There simply isn't enough material on here to warrant you paying anything more than say £10. Whilst hardcore fans will lap it up, when you compare this to say Pavement's 'Slow Century' DVD with all 13 videos plus so much more, it is difficult to justify spending a lot on this. The videos are excellent, but the experience is short-lived. The only special feature is a useful 'Play all' button, which is nice, but far from what we all should expect. It needs more videos, maybe a nice Radiohead booklet, and maybe some live performances. In fact, at the very least both this and the documentary DVD 'Meeting People is Easy' should come together on the same disc.
