Top Customer Reviews
The Drum beat is enhanced by the sounds of bongos throughout the song, the whole song is incredible with the sound of a full rhythm and melody.
Basically, BUY IT!!!
The track itself is brilliant, mixing what they've learnt from 'Kid A' and 'Amnesiac' and combining it with their most famous work from 'OK Computer' and 'The Bends'. This turns out to be a surprisingly good descision, with the chilling computer-based vibes being joined by the eerie sound that only Radiohead seem to be able to wrench out of their guitars. Those, who loved the early guitar rock of 'Pablo Honey' and 'The Bends' will be pleased to know that the album has a bias towards guitars over the computer music, and 'There There' shows this. Thom's singing is bang up to scratch and the band as a whole has consilidated their musical talents to churn out the best they have to offer.
The two b-sides are tracks left out of the Album, but that does not mean in any sense that they are only sub-standard. Radiohead has a history of great B-sides, such as 'Maquiladora', 'Polyethylene' and others which have been used in films ('Talk Show Host' is an instantly recognisable song from Luhrmann's "Romeo & Juliet")
At the moment, I can only recommend this album to you on the strength of the title track, 'There There', so if your not buying the album it's worth getting this. However, if you are like me, and find the B-sides as good as the 'A' material, this single should not be overlooked with it's two new tracks.
Although it's not clear at this time what additional tracks will be included on the single, it's likely that we'll hear an entended version of "There There" featuring some of the 50-60 seconds that were trimmed for the radio plays of the song. After hearing both, the leaked and final mixes of the song, I can tell those who have only heard the leaked take that there are several noticable differences. The drums are much fuller with a metallic plate-like echo effect on them. The vocals seem to have been compressed a bit, making them pop out of the mix more. The guitar work sounds much cleaner. Whether it was just EQ'd or actually rerecorded I'm not sure, but the texture deffinately sounds more like what we'd expect from Radiohead. The intro of the song has been trimmed, meaning the vocals drop in almost 30 seconds sooner. The ending is also revised, leaving us with the fading reverb from an isolated drum fill/attack. Overall, the mix just sounds more professional, fading levels subtly in just right the places to keep your attention focused where it should be.Read more ›
