1.0 out of 5 stars Terrible live, 26 Dec. 2003
By A Customer
This review is from: I Might Be Wrong (Live Recordings) (Audio CD)
Radiohead have proved on numerous occasions that they are amongst the best studio bands in the world with albums like The Bends, OK Computer and Kid A. Sadly, they have also proven that they are amongst the worst live bands in the world with woeful performances over the years at Reading, T In The Park, Glastonbury and the like. This album serves to illustrate Radiohead's inability to reproduce their studio work live, rather than to display a more energetic side to their studio recordings, as most live albums do. Kid A and Amnesiac feature some wonderful music, which is butchered in concert on this CD. The concept of the live arrangements of songs like I Might Be Wrong, Everything In Its Right Place and Like Spinning Plates are hugely appealing, but are let down by the band's poor performances. Colin Greenwood's bass wonders around directionlessly and occasionally stops altogether on the latter. The guitar work on tracks like I Might Be Wrong and Dollars and Cents is sloppy, and the band collectively blunders during the count in to Everything In Its Right Place. The most contemptible factor is Thom Yorke's live voice, which has consistently let the band down over the years. Essentially, this CD is a reflection of a band who have delivered some stunning studio work over the years, but have never been able to reproduce this work live, and only hyperbolic Radiohead fans will contest otherwise.
