3.0 out of 5 stars Just cause you feel it doesn't mean it's there May 24 2004
Format:Audio CD
There There, sadly, does not follow the usual Radiohead tradition where the b-sides rivaled the a-sides in quality. This time around, the a-side is clearly the superior track on the disc, representing Radiohead's pressured retreat to guitar-oriented space rock a la The Bends. Not the song with the most impact from Hail To The Thief, but very good nontheless.
Paperbag Writer sounds like it was written in one afternoon. It's a combination of Yorke's muddled vocals and disjointed keyboard sounds hovering behind him. The only thing going for it is Colin Greenwood's bassline. Where Bluebirds Fly is just 2-plus minutes of keyboard noodling, accomplishing nothing.
This is disturbing, considering that Radiohead's past singles have been considering something of a work of art in their own right, from the Pablo Honey singles up through Amnesiac. The Hail To Thief singles yield nothing of the sort, with the possible exception of Go To Sleep #2. This time around, all of the goods went to the album.

2.0 out of 5 stars No amazing b-side here July 23 2003
Format:Audio CD
"There there" the first single off of "hail to the thief" is an amazing song, guitar driven and laid-back at first, and then it gets even better. One of the best tracks on the album. Especially because of the wonderful lyrics and beatuiful vocal arrangements that start to fill up the track.
The b-sides contained on this single are not nearly as amazing as the b-sides for "amnesiac," they resemble the kind of production featured on "fast track" and "fog." From the first beat driven, gloomy "paperbag writer" youll notice the lack of production and the fact that this tracks seem unfinished. Most notably youll see that there are no guitars on this tracks, probably because only lead singer Thom Yorke and producer Nigel Goodrich partially worked on them.
The third track is "zhere bluebirds fly" a more experimental track, also beat driven, filled with very light orchestra arrangements and quiet synths as well. The only instrument not used here that was used on track two is the bass, which is probably why this track feels so loose.
This cd is definetibely only for collectors, if youre a radiohead fan, and just want to listen to the tracks, im sure you can find other means to do so than buying this album for full retail price. Like buying it used here on amazon.

5.0 out of 5 stars radiohead have the best b-sides always June 3 2003
Format:Audio CD
I'm pretty sure everyone buying this has already heard "There, There". It was deemed the return to Radiohead basics. Guitar, bass, and drums. And it certainly is the best song on the single, and a good song altogether. but theres no denying that the b-sides are also incredibly cool. "Paperbag Writer" has an incredible bass line with cool electronic effects in the background. "Where Bluebirds Fly" has a metallic drum machine going with electronic melodies seaming over it. These b-sides are DEFINITELY experimental, maybe some of the most experimental songs radiohead has ever done (with the exception of "Push/Pulk Revolving Doors"). Even if they are experimental though, if you listen to them enough, like all of radioheads stuff, it will grow on you. it is truly infectious. i eagerly await Hail To The Thief as you probably do, this should tide you over.
Songs rated in order of coolness:
1. There, There
2. Where Bluebirds Fly
3. Paperbag Writer

4.0 out of 5 stars great A-side, freaky and cool B-sides May 30 2003
Format:Audio CD
You've probably already heard 'There There' by now. It is, of course, a fantastic song, and one of Radiohead's most guitarry for years. The funky arrangement, with tom-toms and crunchy, buzzy guitars, seems to amble along pleasantly for the first two and a half minutes, until the chain-gang-like second half. The catchy lines are repeated and build until the drums and guitar properly rock out. It is an amazing exercise in how to build up a song until breaking point.
The two B sides carry on in the vein of Radiohead's more recent electronic outings, and both are really quite disturbing. 'Paperbag Writer' reminded me of another Readiohead B-side, 'The Amazing Sounds of Orgy', with it's loping groove, discordant string sample and sarcastic vocals. It's strange and initially a little flat, but it is actually quite funky. If you like freaky, harsh funk from hell, that is.
'Where bluebirds fly' is even more extreme, and demonstrates Thom Yorke's love affair with artists such as Autechre is far from over. The song is a clash of skittering, junglist beats, odd, screechy computer noises and what sounds like the vocal equivalent of free-jazz. If that sounds strange, well, it is, but again, bear with it for a few listens and you have an oddly beautiful and utterly nightmarish track.

4.0 out of 5 stars good but too short July 25 2003
Format:Audio CD
We all know There There is a good song, and a great first single for the HTTT album, and I was anticipating these songs greatly. Well, they don't dissapoint here, with 2 songs DEFINATELY not meant for the HTTT album, but are great nonetheless on their own. Paperbag Writer is nice, funky, and shows colin's bass expanding in its part of the band's sound, like on Punchup or I might be Wrong. Next is Where Bluebirds Fly, a totally experimental-sounding track which will, I'm sure, annoy the hell out of anyone not as open-minded as myself at first, but give it a couple listens, and the deep groove and airy keyboards will hook and hypnotize you. My only reason for not giving this single 5 stars? because there are 3 songs!! Jeez, I just paid the same price for the Flaming Lips - Fight Test single, and that has 7 songs totalling about 30 minutes (well, one is almost 9 mins long, but hey).
