Greatest Band in the World

by chris harrington on 12/12/2007

You can't go wrong for this price. You are getting every full length album Radiohead has made aside from the new In Rainbows, which I am guessing is not included because it is not on parlophone. Quite simply the greatest band in the world today! Buy it. Listen to it. Love it.

Artist Bio
RadioheadIn 2001, around the time that his first child was born, Thom Yorke took the habit of spending the early evenings driving alone around the fields and by-ways surrounding his home just as dusk was drawing in. "I've got one of these cars with the natty blue headlights and the colours of the headlights got mixed in with the wild-life running into the bushes. The twilight invoked a dream-state within me. It's incredibly beautiful where we live but I used to listen to this Penderecki tune that's really ominous and scary and I'd just get this perverse sense of foreboding."These solitary drives helped inspire the ideas that bolster up much of what would eventually become Radiohead's 6th album. "I wrote a lot of stuff quickly: pages and pages of notes that seemed pretty incoherent at first. Most of it was taken from the radio because - suddenly being a parent - I'd be confronted by the radio giving a news report every hour of the day. It was during the Afghan war and it would ring bells in my head. I'd sit there making mad lists on pieces of paper of the people in the public eye that I had it in for." (laughs).

Quotes
Alternative Press [Hail] There's something for everyone here.
Billboard [Amnesiac] By resolutely forgetting formula, Radiohead proves itself all the more relevant with Amnesiac.
Filter [Hail] From a technical standpoint, it's astounding...
Pitchfork [Kid] ...the sound of a band, and its leader, losing faith in themselves, destroying themselves, and subsequently rebuilding a perfect entity.
PopMatters [Might] These eight tracks positively bristle with energy and exuberance.
Q Magazine [Might] Its charms are bound up with the subtle pleasures of listening to these songs anew and re-understanding their make-up.
The Wire [Kid] ...a vital work. Anyone remotely interested in contemporary music should listen to it at least once.
Wall of Sound [Amnesiac] A sonic extravaganza for effects-loving headphone devotees...unforgettable...
