At nearly 400 pages, there are so many songs it's almost overwhelming. And when they say complete they mean it -- they even include songs that were done as side projects like "I Want None of This" and "Spectre". The official lyrics for the entire catalog are invaluable, since so many of the lyric websites get them wrong. Regarding the book's arrangement, I really liked that the B-sides and rarities were included with the albums with which they were recorded, not thrown together at the end in a separate chapter. It has an index that's very useful given the number of songs. There's even an index of "first lines" of each song, which is one of my favorite parts, almost like a game or quiz. For the musicians, there are a few pages explaining how to read and use the guitar chords.
All said, if there's one "must-have" for any Radiohead fan, I would say this is it. When I first saw it I thought it might be a simple songbook only for musicians, but that's not the case at all. "Radiohead Complete" describes it perfectly. I'll definitely be buying a few more to give as birthday and christmas presents.
Is the title meant to be ironical? It must be as it's woefully incomplete. Yes, it's (guitar) chords only - no tablature, no bass lines, no actual sheet music. But it's NOT all of the chords! How many songs in the the Radiohead canon feature more than one of it's three guitar players playing at the same time? Dozens? Most of them? Yet flipping through (in)"complete" I couldn't find a single instance where the book mentions the possibility of multiple guitar parts - let alone multiple guitars in alternate tunings (optimistic?)
Physically, it's a beautiful book, but it's for collectors. For completists. Most of the info contained can be found online. Musicians and interested parties are probably better served with the books for the various LPs or "Radiohead: The Electric Guitar Songbook". Even Orborn's "Everything in its Right Place" is exponentially more detailed than this.
Arguably a complete W.A.S.T.E. of money. Will probably return.
