Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Stephen Thomas Erlewine
Amnesiac had trace elements of being a roundup of holdovers from Kid A that didn't quite fit that album's architecture, and its origins are echoed on EMI's expanded 2009 reissue of Amnesiac. Here, there are unheard songs and live cuts scattered among the B-sides, but nothing that could quite qualify as a major find -- which makes sense, because the album itself grew from the outtakes of Kid A, so all the best material is on the album.

Which isn't to say that the 15 tracks on the bonus disc are not worthwhile: some of the B-sides lean a little heavily on atmosphere, but they're often intriguing, and this contains another six songs from the band's excellent April 2001 set at Canal+ Studio, plus a version of "Like Spinning Plates," from the I Might Be Wrong: Live Recordings EP. Again, the live versions tend to add warmth and muscle to studio constructions, so they're very worthwhile listening. [The three-disc set is even more worthwhile, as it contains the promo videos for "Pyramid Song," "Knives Out," "I Might Be Wrong," "Push Pulk/Spinning Plates," two separate Top of the Pops appearances where they perform "Pyramid Song" and "Knives Out," and four additional songs from their June 2001 spot on Later...With Jools Holland, added to the three originally featured on the Kid A DVD.]
