Product Description

Amazon.ca

Given that Radiohead are one of the most zealously bootlegged bands in the world--nearly every public utterance is out there somewhere--the emergence of I Might Be Wrong, the band's first ever official live album, would seem a tardy and superfluous gesture. Conversely, Radiohead have never gone out of their way to actively discourage the black market trading of their live wares. Which makes you wonder just what is the intention of this live album? Could it be for hardcore fans who wish to remain on the right side of the law? Or could it be symbolic; the drawing of a double-ledger line under the sporadically interesting but frustratingly contrary anti-guitar rock intransigence of the Kid A/Amnesiac era and the opening-up of whole new chapter? Or perhaps it's because they just wanted to put out a live album? We must wait and see. And so, in all probability, must they. Nevertheless, I Might Be Wrong--featuring eight songs culled from live shows in Berlin, Oslo, the Roman amphitheatre at Vaison le Romaine (how very Pink Floyd of them) and their triumphant homecoming gig at Oxford's South Park--is pretty much beyond reproach, even if the renditions here--"National Anthem" (Charlie Mingus inspired with a raspy Motorhead bass line) "I Might Be Wrong" (Led Zeppelin meets Blondie's "Rapture") deviate little from the script of the original studio versions. The notable exception is an enchanting recital of "Like Spinning Plates", wherein the backwards electronica of the Amnesiac original is superseded by a romantic, ornate piano accompaniment for a classic Radiohead moment. Long-term devotees will also notice the first ever appearance on record of "True Love Waits" (Yorke with solo acoustic guitar), a song which Radiohead have grappled with for years and which finally finds a handle--and a home--right here. --Kevin Maidment

5.0 out of 5 stars Get This For "Spinning Plates" Alone May 27 2004
Format:Audio CD
the songs are all executed well.
my brother enjoys this albums version of "i might be wrong" more than the AMNESIAC's version.
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Amazing, but short Sept. 3 2004
By omar r.
Format:Audio CD
I'd give this 4.5 if I could because the length (or lack of) is made up for with the quality of the performances here. Every song on here is done incredibly. 'I Might Be Wrong' is played with more distortion and a lot faster so that's nice plus. There's a little intro to 'Everything In Its Right Place' which is interesting...it sounds like Thom is saying "Here comes the bride" but I'm not sure. Colin adds a bass riff to 'Everything...' which is just so good it made me wonder why it wasn't on the album version. 'Like Spinning Plates' is awesome, so is 'True Love Waits'. I don't know why everybody says 'Dollars & Cents' is such a disappointment, Phil does an excellent job on the drums of this song. 'The National Anthem' is great, of course, and Thom even tries to make up for the lack of horns by mimicking (or more accurately, panting) the sounds himself. 'Idioteque', in my opinion, has always been better live than on the album. There's so much more energy that isn't reached on the album version. Phil's drumming and the addition of the shaker makes it so much better. Finally, 'Morning Bell' is excellent with the energy of being live.
There are no disappointments on this album except it being too short. Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Let Me Be The First To Say... June 15 2004
Format:Audio CD
Let me be the first to say that this album is a "must own" for any Radiohead fan. I know some fans of their early music were confused or disappointed by the fussy studio electronica of Kid A and Amnesiac but live versions of these songs take on new dimensions and show how powerful and energetic they can be. If you've seen them live you're aware of how great their shows are. I Might Be Wrong captures their energy pretty well and lets you look at the songs in a new way. The one drawback is the disk is only 40 minutes long, that's 40 minutes too short for me!

5.0 out of 5 stars The best Radiohead album? June 8 2004
Format:Audio CD
There are valid criticisms of this album: the abbreviated length, the fact that anyone with a high-speed internet connection can make up their own collection of live tunes. But the availability of complete live shows doesn't negate what this is: a superb little record that chooses quality over quantity, resulting in flawless music all the way through. That's the rarest of all accomplishments, for a live or studio album.
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Radiohead: Best Band Ever May 2 2004
Format:Audio CD
I cannot even begin to explain the emotions that are able to sweep over me when listening to this cd. I own all the Radiohead cds and this one is fueled with amazing songs that will make you want to buy more of their albums. The songs on the cd are all beautifully arranged. The recording is brilliant. All the instruments can be heard crystal-clear and go perfectly with Thom Yorke's vocals. Along with live versions of studio tracks such as "National Anthem," "Morning Bell," "Spinning Plates," Idioteque," etc., there is also a beautiful, unreleased acoustic track at the end called, "True Love Waits."
Honestly, words to describe this cd do not exist. If you have any knowledge of what music truely is, you will not be disappointed.

4.0 out of 5 stars A little inconsistent but a very necessary addition April 11 2004
By David
Format:Audio CD
"The National Anthem" and "Everything in it's right place" are the only tracks here I don't really like. Those aside, You must have this album if you own all the other ones! Definately worth getting for the beautiful "True Love Waits" and revised version of "Like Spinning Plates".

4.0 out of 5 stars not as good as the real thing but close March 7 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This CD is very good, but as has been stated before, there are many versions of these songs online that are better. To their credit, the versions of I Might be Wrong, the National Anthem and Like Spinning Plates are great, and for many new fans this version of LSP is the first time they've heard it done by Thom on the piano.
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.
