Take notice that I have used the phrase, 'worthy collectible item' instead of 'worthy purchase'. I say this to suggest that it is only worth buying if you are a dedicated Radiohead fan, looking to build a collection. However, a more 'worthy purchase' would be the "No Surprises/Running Away From Demons EP", as it includes the same two B-sides, plus three additional ones and one other OK Computer single.
The Zero 7 Mix is superb. Quite jazzy and the bass and beat are really very neat. The keyboars sound lovely and the guitars sound very very cool. I really like this song.
The Fila Brazilla Mix is nice, has a real percussion feel to it. Thom's singing is much slower than in any other version. Very light, not heavy at all. Airy almost. Not the best, but still quite good.
Excellent for the Radiohead collector.
The first B-side on here is "Meeting in the Aisle" which is a very pretty electronica tinged instrumental, thats quite Kid A. The thing that I find the most interesting of these OK Computer singles is that they reflect whats to come for Radiohead, now that we know.
"Lull" is much like what we saw on The Bends, only fresher. I thought that the Bends was very similar to much other stuff by not nearly as good bands. They must've copied, but "Lull" is quite a good song.
Again, this is an excellent single to have and to hold, till death do you part. Excellent intro to Radiohead or excellent way to continue with them.
