5.0 out of 5 stars A wholly different side of Radiohead... April 23 2004
Format:Audio CD
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. No, it's the b-sides what I'm here for. The 4-minute wonder that is called Fog, or alternately, Alligators in New York Sewers, is worth the price of the cd alone. However, it's the other track that really does it for me. Worrywort...my oh my, what a song. The combination of airy and delicate synths and Thom's breathy vocals demands repeated listens. Truly, it must be one of the most optimistic songs that Radiohead has ever written. Though it's understandable why it has been left off Amnesiac, it's still a pity that not many people know about this song, since the band is best known for wallowing in misery. And when Thom murmurs 'such a beautiful day', you know that your day has been made.

5.0 out of 5 stars fog... get fog Dec 30 2003
Format:Audio CD
I know radiohead's whole singles scheme is frustrating and off-putting in terms of actually being able to obtain all of their material, but perhaps our frustrations will win out with a healthy b-sides album in the future. In the meantime, I just have to add a note on this single... it's really fantastic. I got it long ago but just happened to be looking through these pages today and realized I must comment on how wonderful the b-side "Fog" truly is. "Worrywort" is a solid b-side, though definitely that to me, but "Fog"... my oh my. I suppose I can understand why they couldn't sequence it into Kid A or Amnesiac but it's a truly phenomenal song. In light of the three b-sides on the Pyramid Song single, the two on the Knives Out single blow them away... but get it if only for "Fog".

5.0 out of 5 stars simply great June 1 2003
Format:Audio CD
There were 2 knives out singles put out because Radiohead wanted to showcase their b-sides, im sure of it. The b-sides are 9 times out of 10 absolutely great. I'm sure you've heard Knives Out if you're buying this single so i wont go into that. Cuttooth is an amazing song, it really does have to grow on you after a couple listens though. The things Thom says in that song somehow struck a chord with me ("i dont know why i feel so tongue tied) ("im going to join the foreign legion"). I think that its just the way he says the lyrics that makes them so effective. the music fits it perfectly too. buy this single simply for cuttooth. Plus, we all know The Pyramid Song was one of the best songs on Amnesiac with that haunting piano line and that the video was great. Life In A Glass House, meh, they attempted swing/jazz, and got mediocre results.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very, Very experimental June 1 2003
Format:Audio CD
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.
As for the b-sides, Worrywort has some great effects used in the background (a type of mood synthesizer with chimes i think). It isnt exactly the best song theyve ever done but great nonetheless. Fog will grow on you after repeated listens. It combines Radiohead's new sound with their old sound, drenching their basic song structure in effects that will indeed remind you of fog.
if had to rate the songs in order of greatness it would go:
1. Knives Out
2. Fog
3. Worrywort

5.0 out of 5 stars Like the others say, just for one song April 15 2003
Format:Audio CD
I haven't got this single and so I haven't heard "worrywort" before, so I'm completely unsure of how that is.
If you've got amnesiac then you've already got "knives out", so you don't really need to buy this.
But you want to listen to "fog". It would be worth the asking price, if it wasn't for the fact that you could just get it off the internet for almost nothing. do that! it's a lovely song.
Like the other reviewer said - better than some of the main-album tracks - *coughcoughMorningBellRemakecoughcough* - LOL too true my friend!!
I've seen one other website call the song "fog" by another name "alligators in new york sewers" - so it's apparently also known as that.

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)

5.0 out of 5 stars Worth it... Nov. 22 2002
Format:Audio CD
As sencond single from Amnesiac out comes "Knives Out". An uptempo song gloomy and dark filled with guitar riffs and a melancholic tune. Included is "Worrywort" the best b-side out of the kid a / amnesiac sessions. This track is really worth buying, and is beautiful. It features a synth pattern repeating itself and varying along the way, and groovy percussions that seem vocal. The best part is Thom's melodic chant that reminensces none other. His voice is clear and bright as he sings "...mistakes mistaken/theres no use dwelling on/no use dwelling on."
Fog is mainly a bass track, with a repeating riff, and some tambourine and bells, and some other orchestra percussions. Its not one of the best b-sides of the session but it sure will please some.
If you are a Radioohead Fan, dont hold on to anything and buy this record imediatly, you truly dont want to miss out, on this great Radiohead Release. Worrywort is worth it...
