A proper "best of",
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: 5 Album Set (Audio CD)
I'm new to Radiohead - though I rather thought they would fit with my prejudices - I'd not heard any till I heard OK Computer on holiday and gave it a proper listen. So I thought I'd buy it - but I found this instead: it's the first 5 albums 1993-2001 (Pablo Honey, The Bends, OK Computer, Kid A and Amnesiac), with no frills or bonus tracks, obviously without the full sleeves, lyrics etc (but so what) at a better price (and taking up less space!). So, having missed the boat in the 90s - unusual for me - how does it stack up?
Bargain! Original albums - what it says on the tin. Decent card sleeves (opening at the top of the artwork unusually) and the CDs are fine. That's it.
As to the music, there are plenty of reviews of this with the individual albums, but it's impressive and very varied. As an introduction to the band you can't do better - why have a 'best of' CD which rarely has what you want on it? This is album music; these are the albums.
