Some of Radiohead's best B-sides, and kind of a hint at the band's future releases.
It starts off with Airbag, the opening track of OK Computer, with its start-and-stop bassline and chopped-up drums.
It then moves on to Pearly*, which is a gorgeous piece of alt-rock. Every Muse song in existence has Pearly* to thank.
Next is their first instrumental track ever, Meeting in the Aisle. This little slice of trip-hop awesomeness is essentially the precursor to the style of Kid A.
A Reminder. Uhh... not much to say about this one.
Polyethylene (Parts 1&2). The Paranoid Android of Airbag/How Am I Driving?. The longest track, and, as you could guess, it's made of 2 parts. Part 1 is a little acoustic ditty, Part 2 is epic alt-rock with borderline nonsense lyrics.
Melatonin is a little synth ditty Thom wrote for his son as a lullaby. It's quite soothing, even though the lyrics get a bit dark near the end.
Finally, Palo Alto. It's like Pearly*, but happy!
All in all, one of their most underrated releases, if not their most underrated. I love the art, too.
