The Bends-era Radiohead was a guitar-savvy, popular, nearly pop music group, full with the Brit-rock sound of the 1995 days. One of the songs that stands out most on The Bends is "Street Spirit (Fade Out)"- A wonderful guitar riffed, amazing vocals, bass and drums song. This single not only includes that, but some wonderful other B-Sides to go along with it.
"Talk Show Host" (also on the Romeo and Juliet soundtrack) is very unlike anything Radiohead has ever done, on any album, B-Side, live or anywhere else, which may be noticed that it appeared on Romeo and Juliet in 1995. Quite beautiful, slow and very hushed besides from some lovely guitar and soft drums. Thom's voice is really the triumph of this song. Bass only appears in the pre-chorus and is only a few notes.
"Bishop's Robes" is also very odd for Radiohead. It sounds like their playing a real Brit-rock song for 1995 (with other influences of course). Fairly good, and again, Thom's voice is really amazing in this song. You can tell in this song that they were beginning to transform into the state that they were in OK Computer, because of some electronica tinged effects.
Excellent single for any one who likes Radiohead, this is a good transition from The Bends to OK Computer, but I know that this will be a little addition to your Radiohead collection for most people, and what a welcome addition it is!
