Since the release of Ok Computer, Radiohead have been known for their creative song writing and interesting production. This incredible single is a perfect demonstration of how creative they can be both in terms of writing and production, and the result is beautiful.
'Pyramid Song' is an emotive and eerily beautiful piece of music. The song is built upon a relatively simple (but certainly not common) repeating chord progression played on the piano, over which subtly eerie orchestral sounds echo, before Yorke's gentle vocals enter. The timing is unusual yet comfortable, and upon first listen you may think that there's no definate timing at all. About two minutes in, strings become more prominant, and the calmly jazzy rhythm reveals itself on the drums, making sense of the unusual timing you've been listening to. The song builds in intensity and eventually the string ensemble takes the song to it's climax. If you're anything like me, repeated listens will have this song grow on you more and more. Moody, emotive, and powerful.
As usual, Radiohead have treated us to some interesting B-sides, too. This single is quite possibly their most creatively interesting, with the fragmented beats and beautiful harmonies of 'Kinetic', the dark, evil jazz of 'The Amazing Sounds of Orgy', and the schizophrenic 'Trans-Atlantic Drawl', which has the band rock out, before breaking suddenly into a slow, dark, synthesised piece that is somewhat reminiscent of a choral requiem. Overall a very enjoyable listen, and one that you'll get more out of the more you listen to it.
As a musician myself, this single, along with the albums 'Kid A' and 'Amnesiac' have been extremely encouraging, demonstrating that there is still a market for creativity and innovation in the music industry. This single is a very good representation of Radiohead's creative freedom.

I actually own the import cd-single which only features "pyramid song" and "fast track," but i also own "kinetic" on the maxi cd single.
"Fast Track" interesting song out of all the b-sides from the "amnesiac/kid a" sessions it features some offtempo singing that increases and decreases its tempo alongside the bass and percussions. Its nice to hear, but not exactly great, but once you add up that it also includes "Kinetic," this cd is woth it. This song is great, fairly electronic dealing in a gloomy atmosphere with great chanting.
And of course, pyramid song, the great jazzy downbeat song with its amazing lyrics and incredible tune. This cd is worth it if you are a true fan, but if you are not really into Radiohead, you could be better off buying the Pyramid Song single that features 3 b-sides instead of this one. I still like it alot though-

This single, the first off of Amnesiac, proves out to be a sure fan pleaser... Not only does it give you 3 b-sides, but also some amazing guitar work...
Pyramid song is simply great, the jazzy ambient created is wonderfull and truly takes you on a ride along the tune.
"The amazing sounds of orgy" is probably the third best b-side off of the "amnesiac/ kid a" sessions, with an amazing bassline and fuzzy guitars playing in the background while power drums fill the atmosphere of thoms lyrics "the amazing sound of the killing hordes/the day the bank collapsed."
Even more interestingly enough is contained the second best b-side of the sessions, "Trans-Atlantic Drawl" a rocking song with high pitched guitars, fast paced bass and leads, and amazing lyrics... it concludes with a very slow and ambiented atmosphere on the second part, which is a completely different song.
"kinetic" is very good as well, very electronic and with a gloomy atmosphere surrounding the bass while the chant goes on "kinetic... kinetic... kinetic."
This has to be the single that is most worth your money, and if you are a true Radiohead fan, one that you cannot afford to miss. The true greatness of the band's talent can be contemplated with further insight within.

Pyramid Song is beautiful, but the more I listen to the B-Sides that came out of recording Kid A and Amnesiac, the more they strike me as some of the best work the band has done to date. The Amazing Sounds of Orgy takes a few listens but it is one of the best tracks - haunting vocals and beats reminiscent of a spiritual, its like halloween in new orleans. The single is worth it for this track. Kinetic is a good experimental tune, better than many of the experimental tracks that got chosen for the actual albums at least. Listen to the drum beats that close the track with headphones, great stuff. Trans Atlantic is half pure rock, half alien funeral music...interesting, and a good glimpse to the ideas they were having in the studio at the time. Fast Track is an instrumental, only traces of a song in this one, another experimental track on par with pulk/pull revolving doors. Great stuff here, but the Knives Out B-Sides are even better.

The first single from Amnesiac and the first commercially available single from Radiohead in nearly four years.
PYRAMID SONG: (Difer to review written on Part 1)
FAST-TRACK: Vocal manipulations laced with percussion that is both confident (steady bass drum and hi-hat) and choatic (sounds like a snare turned beanbag and it's on the left speaker) and guitars that echo in a sea of speed and confusion.
KINETIC: Synth "ahhs" or "ooohs" are cliché in the world of music but this song puts it into new light. With a jazz drum pattern, meandering keyboards and Thom's pleas to "let's keep moving" and "Don't fall asleep at the wheel," the song moves and yet stalls in the middle of the road [this is not suppose to be a negative criticism but rather an attempt to describe the song]
OVERALL: Along with Part 1, this compliments Amnesiac, bridges it with Kid A and proves that B-sides are hidden treasures.
