The Best Of [Special Edition]

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Andy Kellman
The year 2008 might have been a slightly early point in time to release expanded editions of the first several Radiohead albums, so Capitol greased the reissue pipeline with The Best Of, a 17-track disc with a track list that is as debatable as any other. The idea of squeezing the band's first six albums into something resembling a definitive one-disc introduction seems almost as wise as presenting A Collection of Great Dance Songs incidentally a Capitol release as the one true and useful introduction to Pink Floyd, but to be more fair, the disc does cover just about all of the basics: all the singles and emphasis tracks, from Pablo Honey's "Creep" through Hail to the ...

The year 2008 might have been a slightly early point in time to release expanded editions of the first several Radiohead albums, so Capitol greased the reissue pipeline with The Best Of, a 17-track disc with a track list that is as debatable as any other. The idea of squeezing the band's first six albums into something resembling a definitive one-disc introduction seems almost as wise as presenting A Collection of Great Dance Songs incidentally a Capitol release as the one true and useful introduction to Pink Floyd, but to be more fair, the disc does cover just about all of the basics: all the singles and emphasis tracks, from Pablo Honey's "Creep" through Hail to the Thief's "2+2=5," along with a small assortment of the band's better-known album cuts. One track apiece comes from Pablo Honey 1993 and Amnesiac 2001; three are from Kid A 2000, four are from OK Computer 1997, and six are off The Bends 1995. The primary problem, of course, is that Radiohead are much more an albums band than a singles band, especially from OK Computer onward, so a natural reflex for someone who has valued the band since The Bends is to shriek in mild agony; in principle, a best-of Radiohead compilation is similar to a DVD containing somewhat thoughtfully picked scenes from films made by a specific director. For a very casual fan who has absolutely no interest in exploring beyond the songs he or she heard on the radio or through MTV and the like, this set will do it has "Creep" and half of The Bends, after all, and then a bunch of "the weird stuff", but otherwise it clearly serves a purpose more meaningful for the label than anyone else. [An inevitable limited edition contains a second disc, which digs deeper into the albums while providing a few B-sides and compilation tracks.]

    A great compilation. It is best to hear each Radiohead cd as a whole though, because Radiohead's albums are very much concept albums. I speak for many when saying that ok computer is one of the best concept albums ever. Thank you, sorry to have wasted your time.

    Yes, all the hits are here, for casual fans. And yes, the songs are great and it's a good mix. But, you'd be doing yourself a disservice if you don't get the albums. Just get the albums

    Better than the entire CDs

    Radiohead is a band that has great songs and bad songs. I don't like a lot of their slow songs. Their good slow songs are on this CD. Another reason not to buy all their CDs is because they are not concept albums. They are songs thrown together. Buy this CD if you want the best songs they have thrown together. This is their best CD.
