So you get THREE B-sides here; the only drawback is that they're only acoustic versions of previously released, Bends-era songs. But the good thing is that they're all GREAT versions! If I'm not mistaken, only Jonny and Thom appear on these songs. The acoustic version of "Fake Plastic Trees" helps you to appreciate what a daunting task it must be to be a member of Radiohead--a job in which you are forced to try to make Thom's songs sound BETTER than they do when they're played only by him on an acoustic guitar. The emotive dynamics on this version of the title cut are even more pronounced than they are in the full band version, and Thom's voice shines. "Bulletproof (I Wish I Was...)" is also presented in its stripped-down form, but still bears the ambient guitar ramblings that made the studio version so unique. The song is, on the whole, ridiculously underrated, and is one of Thom's favorite compositions. His angelic falsetto during the verse is raw beauty. But perhaps the best of these three acoustic numbers is "Street Spirit".Read more ›
