This review is from: Knives Out (Cd2) [CD 2] (Audio CD)
This album is fantastic! Not only is Knives Out one of Radiohead's best songs, but the b-sides are easily some of the most beautiful songs of theirs to date! Cuttooth is a very catchy, guitar oriented song that sounds like it was from the Bends or OK Computer. There's a great chorus and its quite easy to sing to. As a matter of fact, I'm suprised they didn't pick THIS song to be a single. Worrywort is a completely electronic song. Thom's vocals are exceptionally good this time, and he gives us beautiful harmonies in the background. Very spacey synths. Fog (AKA Alligators in New York Sewers) is a hybrid of synths and guitars. Thom sings wonderfully. The band plays wonderfully. This is a wonderful song. I usually close my eyes when I listen to it, it gives a feeling of euphoria. But don't get the idea that it's spacey, cos there's a very distinct rhythm. This song also welcomes the return of distorted guitar by Johnny, which is very good. The last track is the same as the album track, but it has extended soloing in the beginning. I was disappointed, but I still think the song ROCKS! In conclusion, BUY THIS ALBUM!
