3.0 out of 5 stars Extremely good... but also rather pricey Dec 14 2002
Format:Audio CD
Here's a song-by-song breakdown of what's on this single:
"Knives Out" You've probably heard this already, so I don't think I need to comment. All I'm gonna say is that it deserves it's place on Amnesiac. 5/5
"Worrywort" Very good song that sounds like primative Nintendo music. There are better B-Sides out there, but it still is good. 4/5
"Fog" The best Radiohead B-Side since "Talk Show Host," which appears in many live sets. I can see why it wouldn't work on Amnesiac; it sounds a bit too much like "Dollers and Cents." Still an outstanding B-Side, much better than some songs that were put on the actual album *coughcoughMorningBellRemakecoughcough* 5/5
Despite the quality of this recording, two good songs (assuming you already own Amnesiac) don't justify twelve bucks. Both songs are relatively easy to find on download services like LimeWire, so either download them or wait for Radiohead to release a B-Sides compilation in the US (which probably won't happen anytime soon)

4.0 out of 5 stars Cuttooth... Oct. 4 2002
By matt
Format:Audio CD
I will recommend buying this if you don't mind buying singles, and dislike mp3s, however, it is 7 dollars for only 3 songs and a video, so unless you really like cd quality, I would suggest just getting mp3s. But on to the single itself, this one is very good. If you're even considering buying this you should already own Amnesiac, so you'll already have Knives Out. Even so, it's a good song and qucikly sets a mood even though the single's pretty short. The reason that I bought this was for one song: Cuttooth. Absolutely splendid song, energetic yet but not loud, I always sing along, you should download this song and if you like it, get the single, but if you don't like it, it's not worth the money. The third song is Life in a Glasshouse (full length version), which is the same as the album version, except instead of the spacey sounds in the beginning, it has a trumpet intro which is nice. I actually prefer this version and it ends the cd nicely. There's one more thing on this cd: the Pyramid Song video. This is an absolutely superb video, one of the best I've ever seen, to compliment one of the best songs in my opinion ever written. However, it's easy to find in the same quality on the internet, so it's not that much of a bonus. But if you're debating whether to get this, the video adds that much more value since you can easily access it any time. Overall a very good single, but a little short for the price.

5.0 out of 5 stars Don't be a worrywort! Sept. 24 2001
Format:Audio CD
As most fans of radiohead know, "knives out" is their most accessible song from either Kid A or Amnesiac. It is also one of their most hypnotic. I love the "new" Radiohead, as some people find them, and the way they have repititive, tone-rich, and haunting songs that really convey the emotion they are trying to produce. "Knives Out" is a perfect example of this absorbingly monotonous sound. "Worrywort" is also a fine example. This is a song that could have been on Ok Computer, simply because of the song quality, which is very emotional and pretty compelling. I also think that if Radiohead would've put this song, "kinetic" and "fog" on Amnesiac, replacing "pull/pulk..." and "hunting bears", that it would have been recieved in a much more congenial way. As one might have assumed, "Fog" is another Radiohead gem that missed the final cut.
If you like cool Radiohead tunes and great package art, consider buying this single.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great single with great b-sides Sept. 22 2001
Format:Audio CD
Knives Out is a great tune to be taken from Radiohead's latest effort Amnesiac, though not their best. Still, it might be the most accessible track which makes it a great choice for a single-release. 'A song about cannibalism', that's what Thom Yorke announced about a year ago. That explains the phrase 'So knives out, catch da mouse, squash its head, put him in the pot.'
The b-sides are terrific too. 'Worrywort' is quite a melodic, nice tune, though probably the least interesting of the b-sides. 'Fog', however, is mindblowingly beautiful. This song is also known by the title 'Alligators In New York Sewers'. Very sweet. 'Cuttooth' is without a doubt the best b-side here. An upbeat track which really make you jump up and down. Too bad Radiohead left this one off the album. Surely this track is much better than, for instance, 'Hunting Bears'. And finally there is a full length version of the Amnesiac classic 'Life In A Glass House'. It's not really special, just a longer intro to the song. Still, this track is superb.
Surely if Worrywort was replaced by an even better track, this single definitely would have had a 5-star rating. Since I'm not able to give it a 4.5-star rate, it'll has to do with 4.

5.0 out of 5 stars some great B-sides Aug. 29 2001
Format:Audio CD
I'm not sure what version of this single Amazon is selling, but I have purchased two versions, one that says made in Germany and is in a plastic case and one that is in cardboard sleeve that says made in Holland. The one that says made in Germany has four tracks: 1 Knives Out 2 Worry Wort 3 Fog 4 Life In A Glasshouse (full length version). The other which says made in Holland has three tracks: 1 Knives Out 2 Cuttooth 3 Life In A Glasshouse (full length version). I noticed Amazon hasn't listed the tracks on the version they are selling. So it's hard to give an accurate review of this disc.
Cuttooth is a lively yet mellow rock song. It is a pretty straight foward mellow rock song with lively piano comping as well as bass. Straight foward easy listening rock.
Worry Wort is a beautiful rythmic electronic ambient sounding song with a very soft pleasing vocal. I like this song very much. It is a sophisticated dreamy sounding song that I find calming and peaceful.
Fog is another beautiful mellow dreamy song. It starts with eletronic rumbling and a fast rythmic tapping until the bass comes in wich seems to drive the song all the way through until it ends. The vocal again is very soft and echoie. The song builds with some guitar and drums and then backs down again with the bass finishing up the song.
Life In A Glasshouse (full length version) is bascily the same thing you hear on Amnesiac. The only difference being a trumpet solo backed with the piano comping starting the song until the familiar vocal comes in which from there on the song is identical to the non full length version.
Overall I am very pleased with these B's. Radiohead contiue to improve there musicianship and artistry. They have become a very mature sounding band. They're all about making good music.

I am not going to waste any breath on Knives Out since that song has been reviewed by hundreds of people along with the other tracks on Amnesiac. Read more

5.0 out of 5 stars Very, Very experimental
Knives Out is Radiohead in their older form with acoustic guitars, drums, bass, etc. I consider it to be sub-standard to their older recordings but its still one great song. Read more

As sencond single from Amnesiac out comes "Knives Out". An uptempo song gloomy and dark filled with guitar riffs and a melancholic tune. Read more
