5.0 out of 5 stars I dont often say wow but...... Oct. 8 2002
Format:Audio CD
WOW! No matter if you are a new fan, old fan, if you like amnesiac best, or pablo honey... you really need to get this single. Paranoid Android could be not only the best radiohead song on ok computer, but maybe their best song ever. To put this song on a single accompanied by two b-sides that will leave you speachless makes this purchase totally worthwile.
Ok, so heres what the songs are like... Paranoid Android is just such a good song. Once you hear the 4 beeps in the beginning of this song you'd better take a seat. It has such an unbelievable feel to it created by possibly thom's best ever singing, and a guitar riff that gives you the chills. The background sound effects and such make the song all the more breath-taking. It goes into an electric guitar hardcore part towards the end proving the variety and talent involved in the making of this song. If there is one song that will leave a lasting impression on you from the OK computer cd it will be this.
Polyethylene (parts 1 & 2) comes next on the single. It begins with a nice little accoustic guitar and voice piece (part 1), that would do fine as a song on its own. But then you hear 2..3.. and the electric guitar comes in adding so much to this song. Thoms singing in this part is quite powerful and meaningful, it has a cool kind of off-beat to it. Would definitely go well on the ok computer cd.
Pearly* is the next and final song on this great single. As if they needed another great song after the first two, but hey, we're talkin about radiohead here... This song sounds somewhat beatles-esque in a way but with a great radiohead twist to it. I would buy the cd for this song alone. Interesting crashing of cymbals and bells lead the way in this song accompanied by a harmony of singing and guitar. Outstanding song for an outstanding cd.

THIS IS NOT A "NO SURPRISES CD-SINGLE" THIS IS PARANOID ANDROID PT. 1!!! Please make sure you know that, I did, and this is much better. Track listing- 1. Paranoid Android 2. Polythylene (Parts 1 & 2) 3. Pearly*
"Paranoid Android" is such a great Radiohead single, and quite an essential song to OK Computer. This is one of the songs that really got Radiohead's fame going.
"Polythylene" is an awesome B-Side, the first part is a nice Thom solo singing a guitar savvy song that moves into this full blown out piece with great guitars and some of the best Radiohead vocals. This is really a wonderful B-Side. A lot like all those great OK Computer songs that they became famous for. Not quite up to Kid A nor down to the Bends. REALLY A GREAT SONG!
"Pearly*" is another great Radiohead song. Another OK Computer-like song. Very cool song, sounds a little like futuristic 80s rock or something, if thats at all possible. I really like it, and Thom performed it recently as an acoustic solo. Its a really powerful song, I dont know how else to explain it.
These songs are great company to "Paranoid Android" and are excellent B-Sides. This is really one of the best Radiohead Singles I have, and Im a collector... that says a lot.

Apart from the wonderful title track culled from Radiohead's musical masterpiece "OK Computer," this single features two great songs previously unreleased: "Polyethylene" and "Pearly*." Don't let the askew time signature of "Polyethylene" distract you from its genius; it sounds reminescent of The Bends, only recorded OKC-style. "Pearly*" (and yes, that asterisk is part of the title) is another great song, often performed live on the tour in support of "OK Computer." Its mystic-sounding drum beat supports its surreal atmosphere. Pick up this disc if you're a Radiohead fan - these are two must-have songs!
