Whatever way you go about it, opening with a thundering rendition of 'The National Anthem' is a pretty damned good statement of intent. While hardly to the quality of more recent live versions of the song (not least the band's performance of the song at Earl's Court in 2003, where the song was layered with deafening war reports), it still retains a similar snarling edge. 'I Might Be Wrong' is transformed, the original somewhat slower, the version here closer resembles Radiohead's more guitar-based work like 'Electioneering'. 'Idioteque' (arguably the best song from 'Kid A') is a cacophony of beats, drums and Yorke's lyrics of impending doom, and is twice as frantic as the original. 'Morning Bell' remains faithful to the original (that "cut the kids in half" lyric is still as frightening as the first time you heard it), as does 'Amnesiac''s 'Dollars And Cents' (although here it sounds unremarkable after the hundreds of buzzing, chattering Thoms that bring the extended 'Everything In Its Right Place' to a close).
'Like Spinning Plates', originally a bizarrely beautiful experimentation of distorted and twisted sounds (not least Yorke's vocal, which sounded like it was being played backwards), here is completely stripped and turned into a brooding, funereal piano ballad (similar to 'Pyramid Song') unarguably superior to the 'Amnesiac' version.Read more ›
Amnesiac takes some of the finest tracks from "Kid A" and "Amnesiac", and introduces the public to the live recordings of these tracks. All are different from the originals, with new instruments being introduced to substitute old ones, often enhancing the music, and, other songs being revamped completely. For instance, instead of the backwards warbling and somewhat boring backing theme that "Like Spinning Plates" had on the album, a piano is introduced, which creates a far superior track in my opinion.
There is one new track on the album, which is "True Love Waits". This is the highlight of the album, and consists of Yorke pouring out his heart over a beautiful acoustic ballad in the vein of "Exit Music".
The crowd cheer along to the crashes and wails of "Idioteque", the rumbles and cracks of "Dollars & Cents", and the haunting "Morning Bell" sounds as superb as ever. The only track that I didn't enjoy was "Everything in it's right place", which just doesn't seem to work live.
Definetely worth buying if you have Kid A & Amnesiac, if you don't, get the others first.
The reception to Kid A and Amnesiac were, let's be honest, a little hostile. "Where are the tunes??" a bemused bunch of reviewers whined. Well, they were certainly there if you bothered to listen closely enough! I just couldn't understand this attitude; your average Radiohead fan, after the complexity and beauty of OK Computer was clearly the kind of music fan who could handle music that was happy to swerve in any direction it fancied (bit of jazz in National Anthem? Yeah, why not!).
So with "I Might Be Wrong" I think the critics can comfortably shut up for five minutes and listen as a song as barmy and off the wall as Idioteque is treated by a crowd as if Oasis were about to launch into Wonderwall. It's a weird moment when you can hear them chant "take the money and run, take the money..." with Thom!
This IS challenging music, it defies what 'rock' music is considered to be, and it does so without descending into the po-faced approach of Pink Floyd (a comparison I've never managed to get my head round).
Ultimately this is a superb record that in certain instances provides interpretations of songs that are actually better than their original counter-parts.
I cherish Radiohead, because without them British music would be a hell of a lot less interesting!
