Editorial Reviews

"They transform studio-centric creations into live songs that are both towering and incandescent ... in concert Radiohead are as organic and explosive as any band playing today." -- PopMatters

Radiohead's live performance in Germany in June 2001 was a masterpiece of aural symmetry. Beginning with the National Anthem, the band gave the audience nearly two hours of otherworldly experimentation in electronic rock. Filmed at the peak of their popularity, the concert conjures moods of loss and alienation in the modern world.

5.0 out of 5 stars RADIOHEAD LIVE.....a gift from the gods themselves January 27, 2009
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
IF I had paid attention to some of these reviews, and NOT bought this DVD for some lame reason like "its not really 5.1 sound", or, "There's some digital distortion in the picture at times", I would have missed out on owning one of the VERY BEST concert films, I have in my collection. I have never seen the band in concert, and i'm sure i'm not the only human on earth, who says that. When they realized their best work, from around OK COMPUTER thru to AMNESIAC, they were opening up for Atlantis Morrisette. Radiohead were very underrated at the time with the masses. Maybe its cos they only had that one hit in the States with CREEP, or maybe its cos their Krautrock inspired electronic experimentation, was too far out for most people's tastes, who knows, who cares. Unfortunately, there is only that one offically released concert film, recorded around THE BENDS, for fans of the band's later, heavy electronica phase. I have been waiting, and hoping, that a concert film would be released of a show from around 1998, or slightly later. This DVD surpasses anything I could have hoped for.
Now a word about the 5.1 sound. It's apparent that the show was recorded for Germany's famous ROCKPALAST TV show. So, the sound would obviously be stereo. The mixers used that sound source, and a computer program, to digitally derive the middle front channel, and the back channels. Since we are watching the band from the front, it only makes sense for the sound to come out of the front speakers. Do people expect a 5.1 surround mix that sounds like Flaming Lips' 5.1 remix of YOSHIMI? Even if they could have done that, it would have sounded horrible, certainly dated. People complained also about minimal "digital distortion" in the picture.

1.0 out of 5 stars Sketchy December 31, 2010
By Tom
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I've started discovering Radiohead over the last couple years and was looking for some concert video of them. Well, this is it--video. Don't let the 2008 copyright fool you, because this dvd looks like a bootleg copy of a VHS, with quite a bit of video issues. Honestly, if you muted it, you probably would not recognize it as Radiohead it is so frustratingly bad. The production is also sadly lacking in that there are a lot of shots of Thom Yorke or the crowd, and random ones of the rest of the band, but nothing that syncs with the music like they were familiar with the work when they shot it. The sound is only fair. I'm sure it isn't truly 5.1, but my chief complaint is how flat the bass sounds, even though they kick off with National Anthem. I'd give it two stars because at least it's 1:52 of concert video of Radiohead, but since I'll probably enjoy it more with the TV off and just listening to it through my stereo that sort of defeats the purpose of it being a dvd. If you can forgive the video attributes because you just just dig the band, more power to ya.

Here's the set list:
National Anthem
Morning Bell
Lucky
Talk Show Host
In Limbo
My Iron Lung
Packt Like Sardines in a Crushd Tin Box
Exit Music
No Surprises
Dollars + Cents
Street Spirit
You and Whose Army?
Karma Police
I Might Be Wrong
Pyramid Song
Paranoid Android
Idioteque
Everything In Its Right Place
Airbag
Just
The Bends

4.0 out of 5 stars Great show! But 5.1??? October 26, 2008
Format:DVD
Okay... First off. Me being a huge Radiohead fan and seeing this at Best Buy, I was curious. I did a double-take and kinda hid it in the Queen section of dvd's and headed out to research it before buying it. I wanted to make sure it was worth the $15 or what. I will agree with the prior review. The sound if MOST ASSUREDLY NOT 5.1! It appears to be a direct rip from a German TV network. That's why I only gave it a 4 star rating. Now that that's out of the way... The show itself is NUTS! I loved it!!! This was a historical documentation of Radiohead at total world dominance! The stuff that got ME hooked. I gave this set the ultimate litmus test last night with my girlfriend and she concurred about the awesomeness of the set, etc.,, Totally worth it. Get it before the band has it yanked, since it's not officially licensed. It's just a great historical document and it brought us back to seeing them in Tampa in May this year. Just a great band that is hopefully not yet at their peak.

Buy this, but with guarded expectations.

Great stuff!!!!

First, let me qualify this review by saying I am NOT a hardcore Radiohead fan, at least not a fan of their more recent albums, which I have found to be somewhat overrated due to lack of conventional songs, and I'm not a big fan of atonal music/beeps and farts noise. I do have all their albums, more out of curiosity that I am `missing' something groundbreaking that everyone else except me seems to be hearing. However, I do think that The Bends and OK Computer are two exceptional albums, easily among the finest albums of the 90's. They are unquestionably an interesting band, and like them or not, anyone would have to admit they make challenging music, which is more than you can say for 97% of bands today. So there.

That said, I got this DVD because I was (again) mildly curious to see what their live shows have been like, since the only time I ever saw them live was in '97 or so, on the OK Computer tour. Plus, there is not a lot of Radiohead DVD concert material out legitimately, and no serious collection should be without something of theirs. This show is from June of 2001 in Germany, and seems to have a cross-section amount of material from the albums they'd recorded up to that point, except Pablo Honey (and no, "Creep" is not on here). Maybe a bit heavier on the experimental stuff, given that they were touring Amnesiac at the time.

The performance itself is actually pretty good, as good as I recall them back in '97. If you like them, and the more experimental stuff (Kid A and Amnesiac, plus OK Computer), you'll probably enjoy this DVD. The sound quality is actually pretty good (it says it's in 5.
