I partly agree with you, but these really can't been considered as albums in the conventional sense.
Both CDs are just a messy attempt at making money - the biggest shame of all is the terrible tracklisting. People will buy this if they've just discovered Radiohead with In Rainbows, and it's a shame that they'll miss out on the hidden gems on almost every album. Down with EMI!

Everybody, just do yourself a favour and get their entire discography. Like Rexona, Radiohead won't let you down!

that doesn't make sense. He's more reviewing the album and the songs that you, I'm sure, already have. Make your own decision and dont' let the band do it for you.

if it's a great band, and some of their best songs, why does it get a 79% ???? I don't mind people rejecting it because the band doesn't want people to buy it. based on the songs, it should have a much higher rating.

nah, i disagree with that statement.

when i review albums anyway, i factor things in like the flow of the album, whether or not it is worth buying and other little things like that. if an album (a greatest hits one especially) leaves a bad taste in my mouth for one reason or another then a lower score is understandable. if these songs were released by Radiohead all at once on an album for the first time, then i'm sure it would get a much higher score.

not the best of reviews, and its not really radiohead's latest release seeing as i don't think they had anything to do with it and it's definetaly not the tracklisting i would have chosen for their best of. Great band though.

Poppycock.
This album was released by EMI with no consent from Radiohead, after they left the major, only for the company to skim money from unaware newly acquired fans, on the wake of the success of In Rainbows.
And although it features some of the best tracks ever written, it still blatantly smacks of commercial operation.

And oh, unless in presence of concept albums, the so called album flow is absolute rubbish.
You can find the entire discography for under 40 euros. Do you need somebody to tell you what's worthier?

I'm pretty sure everyone knows by now that Radiohead doesn't agree with this release. Just sayin'.

Get the albums separately. This does not do the band justice and supports this shitty label.

I really hope most people didn't buy this album.
