but, this version of "SPINNING PLATES" is the real reason to get this.
it's just brilliant.
i got this as an afterthought, but i'm really glad i have it.
Radiohead open up on stage in ways they never do in the studio. They manage to convey a range of sound comparable to their albums' production effects, but without the calculated distance. The result is that each of the songs here seems a truer version of itself: noisier, more powerful and more genuine. Like Spinning Plates and Everything in Its Right Place, in particular, crackle with new emotion. And all the songs benefit from what's best about live work: they're energized by the fact that they balance constantly on edge of possible failure (though of course these were selected because they succeed).
Anyone who has only listened to Radiohead's albums will benefit from hearing how they flourish on stage; and anyone who already knows live Radiohead should cherish these outstanding mixes. In the company of only their fans, Radiohead finally aren't afraid to be a great band.
Honestly, words to describe this cd do not exist. If you have any knowledge of what music truely is, you will not be disappointed.
However, the version of True Love Waits, beautiful as it is, is nothing compared to the first version played in 1995. The original featured a keyboard loop near the end of the song that seemed out of place, yet just... worked.
In the end, however, the raw energy of the National Anthem, I Might Be Wrong and Idioteque, the laid-back Dollars and Cents, the inferior version of True Love Waits, the beautiful acoustic Like Spinning Plates, the bleh Morning Bell (the only Radiohead song I dislike), and the 2003-2004 tour closer and ambient masterpiece Everything in its Right Place make this a great choice for any Radiohead fan.
To truly capture the feeling that Radiohead should leave you with, you must see them live, though.
