    This album contains just eight tracks--but each one of them is a testament to the unshakable power of the group.
  2. These eight tracks positively bristle with energy and exuberance.
  3. Why limit this disc to just 40 minutes? [7 Dec 2001, p.105]

    Proof that critics are silly, and fail to admit their inacuracies with so-called "reviews" (more like unfounded opinions) of Kid A and Amnesiac. And that goes for those who were favorable too. Silly music critics. Full Review »

    A great live album gives a more human aspect to the electronic style of the studio albums Kid A and Amnesiac. I usually don't revisit live albums very often as they tend to be overly long and rarely have the same fluidity as studio albums. Typical of Radiohead, this is unlike most live albums. Usually based on career spanning setlists, this is limited to tracks from 2 albums and it's also quite short. It's a great snapshot of where the band were while touring their 2 most experimental albums. Funnily, the highlights on this are where the band go back to basics - there is a sublime version of Like Spinning Plates and also includes the beautiful "lost song" True Love Waits. Full Review »

    I don't really understand the hype. They're a great live band and you should see them if you get the chance. The recording is really muffled and distorted, sounds nothing like they do live. However, it's worth the purchase for the song "True Love Waits" which is a great great song. Full Review »
