All EMI Era Radiohead discography!

I know the band wasn't involved in the making of this, but it seems that they could have foundsome rock critic out there who likes Radiohead!

You can buy them all separately or save some cash and buy them in this boxed set.

Just because you like Radiohead doesn't mean you are forced to buy this. In my case, this is was a perfect gift. The only Radiohead I owned was "In Rainbows" and a rip of a library copy of "OK Computer." My brother, a fanatical fan, wanted to correct that on my birthday, so he bought me this box. I'm delighted. It's not a best-of. It has the original artwork (in better packaging). It sounds great. No alternate takes or demos or B sides to clutter up the album sequencing. I have the albums now that my brother listened to as he grew to love this band. That's all I need for now.

Moreover, why be mad at EMI? What would have been infuriating is if they put, say, five unreleased tracks on this set. So you, all of you fans who already have these disks, would have had to ponder whether you now need to get these new disks just to get those tracks. That's a cheap marketing trick that even Steely Dan couldn't resist (putting an alternative demo take of "Everyone's Gone to the Movies" on their "Citizen Steely Dan" box set. What SD fan would need that box set, except for that one stinkin' song? And what casual fan would care that it was included?)

This is a great gift for a serious fan to give a casual fan. Or if you just got into the band via the "In Rainbows" hype and want to catch up. But if you already have all their CDs, stop being so obsessive-compulsive. You don't have to buy this. And the fact that you don't have to buy it shouldn't make you angry at its existence.

As for the music itself-- I'll get back to you. Today, I listened to "Hail to the Thief" for the first time. I liked it okay. It's uneven but the good stuff is very, very good. I'm looking forward to hearing "The Bends" next.

All of you radiohead fans make it like the band/EMI is making it mandatory to purchase every product released by the band/emi. You as the consumer have the right to purchase or not purchase anything in existence that's for sale...lately it's become obvious what might not be purchased such as unauthorized recordings. True there's nothing different about these releases than it's preceeding releases. True it's probably not remastered and there isn't a single bonus track. Nor is there a lyric booklet or anything to the effect. All you get are 8 digipaks which are alot more attractive looking than the predecessors but not necessarily worth going out to purchase for a second time. However, I never previously purchased a radiohead cd but knew of the band very well for years just never got around to buying any of their cds. I do know they're one of the very few modern day bands who make the best 100 albums list of all time with 2 of their releases which is a pretty good accomplishment considering this is 2007 and all the legends who have come before radiohead which is just a tribute to their importance in a world that's not becoming so band friendly anymore these days. But I see alot of people are giving it 1 star because it's not new material or bonus tracks when there's no claim by the band or EMI that there was, i could see if they said there was bonus tracks and you take it home and there isn't but it was never said to be...and remember you don't have to buy every product, you don't have to buy those singles either with an album track and 3-4 really bad songs either...i give it 5 stars because the music is all 1st rate and the package is incredibly attractive.

While it is true that the band was not interested in releasing a box set of the work (especially during their own release of their 'new' album: IN RAINBOWS) this set represents a stunning career in studio releases from beginning to the base of the rainbow (just not inside of it).... as well as some choice live recorded material.

Yes, for fans it seems that buying this box is treason against the band, and a crime, etc... However, for someone interested in a obtaining all of the bands major releases in one purchase should not let the opportunity pass.

The only difficulty I see with a new fan & this discbox is because it contains ALL of the bands major releases from 1993 - 2003. Only a decade... but a volatile one for a band who began with "Creep" and hopped, skipped, and teleported to "Paranoid Android" in 1997 and then disintegrated to "treefingers," "in limbo," and "pulk/pull revolving doors" before emerging at the other end with "There There" in 2003.

The non-linearity of this band would certainly confuse and could just as easily put a new fan off of certain albums hearing them in such close proximity to one another. For those of us who followed the band from the beginning and spent the decade.5 listening along have certainly developed with the band in terms of understanding the music as a progression of/in form. This, of course, has currently culminated in "IN RAINBOWS".

As a closing note/thought: Be sure to locate some B-Sides (from singles) throughout the years if the box set inspires you to do so (which it will if you give it enough listens).

Good luck & generally ignore the hate from some of the fans.

Okay, I've read several of the reviews that have bashed this boxed set and my question is... What do you want? Are you bashing it b/c of the music or b/c the man released it w/o permission from Radiohead? My guess is the second of the two.

Bottom line...If you love Radiohead, but don't own any of their records (like me) by it ASAP. A perfect way to get this incredible music all in one package.

Radiohead still gets paid for the sales on this and even though I don't really agree with the way it was released I bought it. I am thrilled that I did and you will be too!

You realize this is not a greatest hits compilation, right? Unless you somehow claim that every single track ever released by Radiohead (except for those off In Rainbows) is a hit, and somehow find offense to their being sold on separate cds in the exact order that they were released.

Monetarily idiotic
Yes I agree completely. I heard about the box set from MusicDirect, which has priced it at 89.99, more than Amazon. When I came here and saw how low the individual albums were, I decided not to buy the box set. I'll just buy them individually.

If you have any respect for Radiohead, don't buy this
A retaliation how? Radiohead still makes money off this. Just like EMI will make money off of you buying any of these CDs individually, no matter what company releases their future records.

I'm not going to buy this simply because I own most of these CDs already, there's no new material... Read More
