Not gonna change this to an unofficial release any more because people are obviously angry, but this isn't an official release in any shape or form.

It is:
- not released by Radiohead
- not created by Radiohead
- released without any involvement from Radiohead besides permission

Approval =/= participation. Just because Radiohead "approved" this release does not make it part of the Radiohead canon - I'd wager that they only did so because of the internet campaign to stop the legal battle their label was fighting.

This release has been compared in the media quite often to The Grey Album by Danger Mouse. Neither Jay-Z nor The Beatles have that album in their discography despite both acts (Shawn, Paul and Ringo) approving it. Wanna know why? It's not a Jay-Z album. Nor is it a Beatles album. It's a Danger Mouse album. In a very similar fashion, this is an AMP Live album. It is not a Radiohead album.

A good example of a remix album that DOES fall under the criteria to be listed under the original artist's discography is Gil Scott-Heron and Jamie xx's album We're New Here. This is because this album was released by the same label as the original album, the album was approved by Gil and the label from before production even began, and Gil and Jamie worked on the album together. Because of this, it can be called a Jamie xx album AND a Gil Scott-Heron album.

Hopefully all of you people insisting that this is, like, totally a real Radiohead album realise you're very wrong now.
