Product Description

Product Description

Japanese-only enhanced CD EP (packaged in a mini-LP sleeve) from the Radiohead frontman featuring six audio tracks plus two enhanced videos. Although Radiohead began life in the midst of the Britpop scene of the '90s, Yorke's distinctive vocal tones set the band apart from their contemporaries and they have continued to blossom with each enthusiastically-received release. On his solo album, The Eraser, Yorke took the arty, electronic side of Radiohead to the next level, creating an album very different from his band's work, but a logical step forward for Yorke himself. Features one track from his 2006 solo album ('Harrowdown Hill'), four non-album sides ('The Drunk Machine', 'A Rat's Nest', 'Jetstream', and 'Iluvya'), the extended mix of 'Harrowdown Hill' plus the enhanced videos for 'Harrowdown Hill' and 'Analyze'. XL Recordings. 2006.

4.0 out of 5 stars The drunk machine Dec 1 2006
By E. A Solinas HALL OF FAME TOP 10 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
Radiohead frontman Thom Yorke has definitely proved himself as a solo musician, after the release of the moody-computer "Eraser."

He's not quite as brilliant in "Spitting Feathers," with five B-sides scattered on various singles, and the music videos for his hit single "Harrowdown Hill." But remember: even B-level Thom Yorke is better than average, and this little EP has the same haunted, eerie feeling as his album.

The first song "Drunkk Machine" lives up to its name: a sort of drowsier, slurred song full of weird noises, crackling and sharp beats. Then it builds in intensity like a haunted house imploding on itself. It's followed by the softer, trippier beats of "Rat's Nest," only to switch to "Jetstream." Very frantic, claustrophobic and skittery, with Yorke sounding as if he's on the edge of a nervous breakdown.

We're then given the extended mix of "Harrowdown Hill," which expands the melancholy political ballad into a sprawling, solemn melody with some sharp beats. And finally there's "Iluvya," which is a sputtering, wild little song full of staccato synth and blurred voices say "I luuuuhuvvv YYAAAAA..." Very Aphex Twinnish.

Then we have the music video -- hoo boy. The political themes of "Harrowdown Hill" are even more explicit in the video, which has blurred, fast-moving images of political marches, upraised hands, angry cops, and a hawk swooping through it all. It climaxes with the sight of a seemingly dead Yorke plunging into the water, and slowly sinking. (Contrary to advertising, the video for "Analyse" was evidently ditched)

"Spitting Feathers" is something that takes a little time to grow on you, primarily because the songs are so widely ranging -- some are jagged and crackly, and some are dreamy and smooth.

"Spitting Feathers" is something that takes a little time to grow on you, primarily because the songs are so widely ranging -- some are jagged and crackly, and some are dreamy and smooth. But while these are not quite as brilliant as his other songs, Yorke's talent for odd, creepy little songs is undeniable.

The synth presence is pretty strong here -- sharp beats, smooth ambient sweeps, and fuzzy spatterings like a sonic Jackson Pollock. Haunting vocals from Yorke add to the feeling, with lyrics full of decaying beauty. "This is a ghost coach/we are riding... between the whipcrack/and the moonbeams/I can hear somebody laughing."

"Spitting Feathers" is a worthwhile little EP, if you have the cash to spare -- it has Yorke exploring softer music and trippy, wild stuff that experimental bands would not be ashamed of.

5.0 out of 5 stars A worthy addition to his solo work... Dec 25 2006
By Christopher Broski - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I wish musicians and bands would do this more!!!! An EP that has no slack or filler. Sweet short and simple. Although, this music is by no means simple or sweet on face value, it is haunting and synthesized. This strikes the same vein as the Kid A - Amnesiac saga -- and could be viewed as a chilling addition, expect that it's not Radiohead here, but Thom Yorke! This man continues to amaze me with the effects and extensive use of synthesizers all by his lonesome. This album is a very impressive effort that stands proudly next to its predecessor, _The Eraser_. I think it foreshadows more good things to come from Thom Yorke's solo career.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good music; poor video quality Feb. 7 2007
By Casey G. Hancock - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This EP is very overpriced. Though I like the music tracks that are on it, it's just not worth the price. The quality of the video (as in the encoding, not the production) is so low that that doesn't add much value to the purchase either. I'd venture to guess you could find a higher-quality encoding of the video on bittorrent somewhere. This purchase is only for the most most hardcore fans and collectors.

5.0 out of 5 stars Not over-rated Feb. 22 2007
By Robert Austin - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
People that are ordering this album are forgetting that fact that you are ordering an IMPORT cd. Needless to say, it comes from another country. Take the price increase into affect once you realize that fact. Album is wonderful and is NOT over-rated or overly pricey, contrary to popular belief.
