"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)
If you like cool Radiohead tunes and great package art, consider buying this single.
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.
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 morePublished on April 23 2004 by beatlebum
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... Read morePublished on Dec 30 2003 by Ben Scheim
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. Read morePublished on June 1 2003 by Shelley D. Bowen
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 morePublished on June 1 2003 by Shelley D. Bowen
I haven't got this single and so I haven't heard "worrywort" before, so I'm completely unsure of how that is. Read morePublished on April 15 2003 by Jim Ross
As sencond single from Amnesiac out comes "Knives Out". An uptempo song gloomy and dark filled with guitar riffs and a melancholic tune. Read morePublished on Nov. 22 2002 by Roger I. Camara Lemarroy
I just got this one today, and I am very impressed. Another good single from Radiohead. The piano in Cuttooth is great, and it is very catchy. Read morePublished on Sept. 19 2002
Wow, this is a great single. Knives Out is a great song
and the b-sides are just as good (if not better). Read more
If you haven't heard much of Radiohead (most likely because they aren't blasted on the radio 24/7), and want to get into them, this is a good starting point. Read morePublished on March 31 2002 by Shadowgraphs
