  • Wicked album good work and worth buying

    The tactile and brilliant nature with witch this album was made is rare, usually with albums like these there is a tendency to be lazy. This is not the case here the vocals are well thought out and the deference to the originals are sound.

    Don't listen to the stuck up, snooty, closed-minded Radiohead fans who even loathe anyone touching their precious tunes. This, more than anything else, is a tribute, and a brilliant one. I'm a Radiohead fan, and have been for quite a while ... and when I first heard about it this I thought it would be a bit of a laugh. The tracks are treated with respect, and swear to God .... dare I say it ..... some are better than Radiohead's. Paranoid Android (this one) is sensational, as is climbing up the walls and let down. They're all great. (though Fitter Happier makes me laugh, its the same ... but with a Jamaican accent!) Buy it, if you're a true Radiohead fan, you'll love it ... if not, you'll still love it.

    Given that OK computer is my favourite album of all time I bought this album with no little trepidation. I had heard good things about Dub Side but the whole thing still sounded like a bit of a joke. Obviously I needn't have worried. It takes a little while to really warm up but Toots' version of Let Down is pure genius and I'd even go so far as to say that Electioneering might actually be better than the original! It's so fresh and fun that I haven't listened to Radiohead's version for ages.

    I did love Dub side so I was receptive. But I wasn't quite prepared for this! They've taken a classic album and taken it (with great sensitivity) into new plain. Not better, but great in its own way. Great songs+imaginative treatment=great album.
  • Amazing

    I love this album... (apologies to Radiohead fans in advance)... but i actually prefer this interpretation of OK COMPUTER to the real thing, not because it's better, but the reggae rythmns seem to glue it all together, and the mnomics of the melody make links (in my head) between both versions. Bloomin' marvellous.

    This album fell short of the mark for me. I bought it on the back of a nice dub trip I was on but sadly the trip ended there. I preferred other albums such as Heathen Chant. Listen to that and if that floats your boat then we know we're speaking the same language and you can safely avoid Radiodread. Not terrible, just not good enough...
  • Dreadful follow up to Dub Side

    For anyone who enjoyed their take on Pink Floyd's Dark Side of the Moon this interpretation of Radiohead's classic OK Computer must be worth a listen. Laugh, cry or enjoy....
  • Buy it!

    I've always had ecelectic tastes - but the two genres of music that feature most highly in my music collection are reggae and indie. As The Bends is my fav Radiohead album and not Ok I thought if they'd mullered it I wouldnt mind too much. They havent it's brilliant... Whatdyathink Thom?
