Editorial Reviews

The long-awaited follow up to the critically-acclaimed, still-charting-after-three-years Dub Side Of The Moon is a complete reggae version of Radiohead's OK Computer. Featuring guest appearances by Toots & The Maytals, Citizen Cope, Morgan Heritage, Horace Andy, Sugar Minott, Frankie Paul and others, the disc has already been covered by USA Today, NPR, LA Weekly, Village Voice, MTV.com and Pitchfork.com among others, with much more confirmed coverage to come. All Music Guide says "The Easy Star All-Stars not only treat OK Computer with the respect it merits, they successfully re-imagine it, creating a work of art that...should find favor with both Radiohead loyalists and roots reggae purists alike."

Format: Audio CD
The Easy Star All-Stars have taken the same magic that rendered "Dub Side of the Moon" a phenomenon and applied it to another of the twentieth century's greatest recordings: "OK Computer." Most tributes phonographically copy the original band or fall embarrassingly short in the attempt. Both types are dull. A good tribute pays homage to the parent while simultaneously making a fresh interpretation. "Radiodread" accomplishes this goal in a meaningful way. The primary genre here is roots reggae with tones of dub, ska, rock and soul. Naturally some songs work better than others, but as a whole the recording achieves a highly psychedelic interpretation. While packed with quality guests, it is the contribution of Toots & the Maytals that lends legitimacy to "Radiodread" as a reggae project. If the listener appreciates both Radiohead and reggae music, this is sure to resonate. In what is now a stack of Radiohead tributes, "Radiodread" finds itself alongside Christopher O'Riley's work -somewhere near the top.

Easy Star All-Stars' (ESAS) 2006 project to cover one of the decade's greatest albums is an ambitious project. "Radiodread" is the group's track by track rendering of Radiohead's 1997 album "OK Computer" into a reggae record. The record is faithful to the original songs in terms of melodic and harmonic lines, down to electronic details and lyrics, changing only the instrumentation to reflect reggae sensibilities and featuring a range of different guest artists to re-adapt (or entirely copy) Thom Yorke's vocals. The upside of this is that Radiohead fans get the opportunity to see Radiohead entirely through the different lens of reggae, to get a kick out of the humorous and deft reinterpretation of favourite tracks, or even to appreciate the record as a stand-alone. The downside is that certain tracks which emulate the original to a tee may appear to want more creative freedom, other than just dressing Radiohead up in a removable reggae costume. In all, however, ESAS has managed to create some gems that have discovered and explored new aspects and realms of Radiohead, and makes "Radiodread" an album worth your time.

The first thing that hits the listener (Radiohead-informed or not) is how most tracks stylistically embody the elements of reggae; the strong, pulsing and straightforward offbeat, the instrumentation and the Jamaican vocals. It surprised me to laughter initially when I heard familiar songs like "Let Down" reinterpreted. Some comparison is needed here: the original song exudes a melancholic feel as Thom Yorke sings, "Let Down...Crushed like a bug..." while paired with the sounds of a dreamy guitar. ESAS' take of the track features the distinctive offbeat of reggae that gives the song an upbeat feel typically uncharacteristic of Radiohead.

Radiodread is good.. great even! But there's something about the album that lacks that cohesive feel that the band achieved with Dub Side of the Moon. Ok Computer is one of my all time favorite albums, and I couldn't have been more excited when I heard they were covering it. Still.. something feels off. Their choice of guests don't always work, and some of the songs feel more like straight up Radiohead covers than they do reggae songs. Airbag, Let Down, Climbing Up the Walls, and Lucky definetely shine on this album. Unfortunately songs like Karma Police and Paranoid Android fall short. Don't let this dismay you though, the album is great!

This is a great album. The only flaws it has, if you could call them that, is that it stays too close to the original "OK Computer". There are a lot of points in which they could have deviated a bit more into Jamaican territories than to go with the soul/R&B/rock feel that this album is laced with. But the production is fantastic and the performances are very tight, as expected out of this crew.

What an enjoyable trip! Especially "Let Down", Toots makes it a work of praise to the heavens; "Fitter, Happier", the true genius moment where the Rastaman's paranoia comes out; and "Exit Music", Sugar Minott has a good thing going on that one. Only bummer: "Subterranean Homesick Alien", probably my fave track on the original - George Michael seems to be singing it here, not that I mind George but it's too white-sounding to be included here. Am I in trouble?

I stumbled on this while sampling some new releases. I loved OK Computer, and this new interpretation works for me. There's something very cool about this album. I can't wait to have it on the hi-fi at the next party. The arrangements are spot-on, complex, and well-executed. Well done!

Every Easy Star All-Stars album astounds me. Reggae is always a good genre, but when you take the best of reggae and use it to re-create already amazing songs, you can't go wrong. Out of all the Easy Star All-Stars albums, this one is my favorite. In this album, just as in all their others, I prefer the Easy Star All-Stars version to the original. I would love a chance to see them live. Check out their tour dates now and see them for yourself - I'm going to see them at Hangout!
