Customer Review

on 19 March 2005
Hmmm... what can I say. This is a typically brilliant album from one of the best bands ever (although sadly I doubt this will be acknowledged when we looking back in a couple of decades) and quite simply represents a group who have their own unique style and can put tremendous variety into their work, as well as add thought-provoking lyrics and leave the rest of recent popular music in a light much worse than you've ever seen before, simply because you've discovered the greatest band of the last 20 years.
Admittedly, it will take a few listens to get into this album, as has been stated before, but patience will pay dividends and at the 20th listen you will be brainwashed into knowing who are the greatest artists of this era. Instead of liking inferior dross you will be marvelling at the wonderful evocative wails of Thom Yorke and the guitars in songs like "2+2=5" and "There There"; the piano that leads superb songs like "Sail To The Moon" (which takes a "Say 'No' to time signatures" stance) and the evil "We Suck Young Blood" (which any self-respecting vampire would have as his signature tune) as well as the bittersweet "Punch Up At A Wedding"; the riff-heavy and political (yeah Green Day, you don't have to be as subtle as a cow's arse in Antarctica to be political) "Go To Sleep"; the electronica-mad yet compelling "Myxomatosis" (spell that will you!); and finishing with "A Wolf At The Door" which - had it been released as a single - would have left mainstream nobody rappers like 50 Cent/Eminem looking like the chav at the back of the class with just his ego for a friend.
If you don't like any of Radiohead's work, be it The Bends, OK Computer, Kid A or HTTT, then you're not human.... who needs slapped*. Which reminds me, I need to slap somebody....
*The author of the above review does not advocate the use of violence against human or non-human species, although would encourage any readers to buy the above product or any products related to the band "Radiohead" from this website as a kind gesture to the hosts of this review and to your lacklustre record collection.
